Kendall Jenner ‘kind of loves’ that her family did not recognize her during her walk in the Milan show.

With the commemoration of the first episode of Season 5 of The Kardashians which aired on 23 May, the 28-year-old model and entrepreneur revealed intriguing details about her recent modeling gig.

Her walk during Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2024 womenswear show in Milan which was hosted in the former house of the Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, was filmed for the show during Fall 2023 and featured it as the closing walk of the show. She describes her look as so blendable that even her elder sister, Kim Kardashian, 43, mom Kris Jenner, 68, and Kris’s boyfriend Corey Gamble, 43, could not recognize her.

Viewers watch as Kim and Kris are extremely late for the show due to being stuck in traffic, and arrive just in time for the show to begin. Kim said of her late arrival on the show, “I think if anything, we have to be extra on time — early — just not give anyone a reason to talk s—.”As they take their front-row seats next to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, the show commences.

Unfortunately, Kim, Kris, and Corey cannot spot the model during the show, which is evident when Kim asks Victoria Beckham if they missed Kendall’s walk. To this, the fashion designer clarifies that the supermodel was the last person to close the show.

Kendall’s look featured her donning an oversized shiny black suit with a sleek back hairstyle and accessorized her classic look with a statement white handbag and big black-rimmed oversized glasses. Walking the segment in this getup, the supermodel did look unrecognizable at first glance.

Her elder sister and momager Kris on the other hand wore satin slip dresses, with Kim in a powder-pink one designed by Beckham herself, according to People Magazine. She added dimension to the dress by layering it with shiny necklaces and letting her tresses loose. Kris on the other hand slipped on a black satin gown that sported a sheared neckline and wore it under a leather jacket along with layered shiny necklaces.

In a confessional on the show, Kris calls out to Kendall saying, “Kendall,” before adding, “I don’t want you to take this personally, but I think I should let you know that I didn’t see you walk because I didn’t recognize you. It’s so horrible!” However, the 818 founder thinks otherwise. In fact, she said she loved the fact that her family could not recognize her in the show.

The model shared, “My family, my friends, they didn’t recognize me, but I kind of love that, I really kind of love it,” before adding, “That’s, like, kind of always my goal, like, being a chameleon, I guess, in the sense of becoming a different character.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Kim addressed Kris and Gamble while holding a glass of champagne about her hectic over-the-top schedule for the next few days. She says, “So, I go to New York, for six hours, to Paris for 15 hours, to Atlantic City, to Milan. My plane’s gonna go home, pick up my kids…So, I’m actually gonna have them drop me off in Milan. Then I have to go to Washington D.C.”

Reacting to her sister’s manic schedule, Kendall reveals, “God bless her soul,” before adding, “I have so much respect for the level of ‘give a f—‘ that she has…flying around to all these places and more power to her, for sure. But I just could never. It’s so much.”

The model further expressed concern for the SKIMS founder saying, “I worry about her, I really do,” before adding, “I think about her often in the sense of I want her to take a break.” But it doesn’t seem like Kim will be slowing down anytime soon.
