Is The Kardashian Name Hurting Kendall Jenner's Fashion Career?

Kendall Jenner addressed the topic on everyone's mind in her cover story for Love magazine: how did the famous Kardashian name either hurt or help her ambitions to be a high-fashion model?

"I was like, 'You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously," Jenner told the magazine. "People think that [success] just came to me. But it didn't. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name."

There you have it! Jenner has admitted what we all secretly assumed: the Kardashian name didn't do her any particular favours when she decided she wanted to hit the runways of huge luxe names like Chanel Couture and Givenchy. But on the other hand, being rich and famous probably didn't hurt too much either.
