Kendall Jenner Quotes:
“You can’t take anything personally in this business. Follow your dreams, but there is a lot of criticism. You have to brush it off. Everybody is looking for something different.”
“I think mascara is a must. If I’m going to wear makeup somewhere, and I’m doing it, it’s usually really simple – it’s just mascara and maybe a tiny bit of eyeshadow, but that’s it.”
“My name is Kendall. Kendall Jenner. I am not a Kardashian.”
“What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat; it’s not a nice feeling.”
“Ask me a question about paparazzi, and I get so heated. And I feel so bad for young kids of celebrities. My nieces and nephews get yelled at, and I’m like, ‘You are yelling at a 2-year-old.'”
“It’s true, I used to be so shy. I used to never talk, just sit back and do my thing. I was never bullied, though, and it was never like it was something that needed to be ‘fixed’, like being shy is a bad thing.”
“My style icon actually is my three sisters. I love the way they dress and the way they put things together. I definitely get most of my style from them.”
“Me and Kylie are sisters, but not everything we can always do together. She’s not trying to be a model. She’s trying to be more like a personality. We’re trying to kind of separate ourselves – not in a bad way!”
