A Supermodel is Born

Say what you want but Kendall Jenner is a force to be reckoned with. In very little time (and some would argue with an unfair celebrity advantage) the media darling has snagged Daily Front Row’s Fashion Icon of the Decade award and a freshly stamped New Supers tag.

During the award ceremony last week, bombshell Ashley Graham tore the house down with her playful humor (Testino give her a job already!), while the biggest influencers of the industry rubbed shoulders. Top faces like Doutzen Kroes, Jordan Barrett, Kaia Gerber, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and more all attended while Philip Picardi gave a riveting acceptance speech for Teen Vogue‘s Media Brand of the Year award and Creative Director of the Year Mario Testino embraced his Peruvian roots in helping shape his monumental career.

See a glimpse of the special event below.

  1. I want supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Tatiana Patitz, Yasmeen Ghaury, Karen Mulder, etc, etc, etc.
    I’m not a fan of this moment.

  2. There are too many celebrities children becoming famous models. They would probably not get signed if they did not have the name behind them. There are a lot of more beautiful girls out there that don’t get the chance. They need to go back to using regular models not the name.

  3. There are too many celebrities children becoming models. They would not be where they are without the famous name behind them. Some of them are not that attractive, just average looking. There are a lot of more beautiful girls out there getting passed over for celebrities…. Go back to these girls!!

  4. People like Kendall,Gigi etc. will never be supermodels .Supermodel should be a title for someone who earned it

  5. If designers today weren’t greedy, mediocre, untalented, unoriginal starving artists they probably would use “real” models. Don’t blame Gigi, Kendall, or Lily-Rose Depp they’re just the by products of fashion world that no longer exists!
