Jacobs creative director and Love magazine editor, Katie Grand, has spoken on
working with reality star turned model Kendall Jenner. Katie reveals that she
has been amazed by Kendall's transformation as she has become well known in the
fashion industry, and she thinks the model has kept her most positive traits
since becoming more famous too: "I've worked with Kendall for a year now.
It's been fascinating to see the transformation from the shy teenager sitting
in the Marc Jacobs reception to the supermodel she is today. She's still the
same, punctual, friendly, hardworking girl - just much, much more famous within
the fashion world."
also explains that when Kendall visited to be fitted for the Autumn/Winter 2015
show, they had to make every effort to keep it private because the paparazzi
were so insistent on trying to get photographs. She says that she has never
experienced something on that scale before: "This season, at Marc, we had
to make sure her fitting was done in a room with blinds, as the paparazzi had
camped out on the roof opposite the studio to try and get a shot of her. In all
my years being a stylist and working with the likes of Kate and Naomi, I have
never known the paps to try and get a shot of a fitting with a long lens from
across the street."
adds that she believes Kendall was perfect for the recent Marc Jacobs show
because she fit the look perfectly: "We work with her at Marc because she
looks great, she looks good in the clothes, and she is sophisticated and chic.
Her very dark lip and dark hair looked so striking against the yellow of her
pretty yellow floral dress."
