Fashion runs in the family! 

Kendall Jenner might be swept up in the high fashion world, but the reality star turned model finds most of her inspiration from a certain family member. 

“I really admire Kim’s style. It’s insane,” the rising model, 19, told Harper’s Bazaar for the May 2015 issue about her half-sister Kim Kardashian. “It’s so fun to be in Paris with her, but I’ll walk out and be like, ‘Oh my God, I love my outfit,’ and then I’ll see Kim and I’ll be like, ‘My outfit sucks compared to yours!’”

Jenner, who covers Harper’s Bazaar subscriber issue wearing minimal makeup and an outrageous black hat, burst on the scene in February 2014 — and hopes to stay there for a long time to come. “I started this hoping that it would have longevity,” Jenner reflected. “I didn’t come into this thinking it’s going to be a fun thing that I’m going to do on the side. It’s something I wanted to do my whole life.” 

And with fellow model friends including Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Gigi Hadid, the job becomes easier. “You have to be around these girls for work, for parties, for events, for shows, especially,” she said. “It’s good to have a set of girlfriends that you can stand being around. You have to be around these people all the time!”
