Kendall Jenner of Keeping up with the Kardashians and Gigi Hadid of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are the faces of two MAJOR fashion houses’ Fall 2014 campaigns. It is very clear that these girls are blazing the trail in taking reality television stardom and using it as way a to break into legitimate careers in the modelling world.
Gigi made waves recently when it was revealed that is she is Tom Ford’s new muse appearing completely nude in an ad for his new fragrance. She also appeared in his Fall 2014 campaign and in an ad for his eyewear with Patrick Schwarzenegger—son of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Gigi can also add being the Sport Illustrated rookie of the year to her many modelling credits.
Kendall Jenner has a had a VERY good year so far. After walking Marc Jacobs in New York Fashion Week, she headed to to strut her stuff on the Giles runway at London Fashion Week, only to finish it all off at Paris Fashion Week where she participated in both Givenchy and Chanel runway shows! In recent weeks, we have learned that Kendall was one the faces of the Givenchy Fall 2014 campaign (above) and that she walked the Chanel show during Couture Week.
These two girls are both young in their careers and we are very excited to see where the fashion world is going to take them!

Do you think that these girls are building careers on their own or that their reality connections are the reason they are where they are. Take the poll below!
