How did Kendall Jenner make her money & wealth?
Kendall was born in the city of Los Angeles on November 3 1995 to transgender activist and Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner, who is now known as Caitlyn Jenner. Her mother is Kris Jenner, a television personality. Kendall’s middle name, Nicole, is a tribute to Kris Jenner’s best friend, actress Nicole Brown Simpson, who passed away just before Kendall was born.
Kendall was brought up in a household that is far from normal, with a stepfamily that has eight half-siblings and one younger sister, Kylie. Due to her parents having children with other partners before they were married, the situation was rather complicated. This was further escalated when her father, Caitlyn, decided to have a sex change.
Kendall was raised alongside her maternal half-siblings, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob and with her sister in Calabasas, an upper-class suburban area west of the city of Los Angeles. She attended private school at Sierra Canyon but decided to make a switch to homeschooling so she could pursue her career in modeling. Kendall then graduated in 2014.
Kendall began modeling when she was 14 after being signed by Wilhelmina Models in 2009. Her first job was to model for the Forever 21 campaign called Rocker Babes with a Twist. After this, she featured in many other campaigns, including the likes of Teen Vogue, Mercedes-Benz, American Cheerleader, Teen Prom, Lovecat, Flavor Magazine and many others. In 2012, Kendall teamed up with Russel James, a Victoria’s Secret photographer. There she did editorial work and participated in joint projects. These included work for well-established firms such as Kurv, Miss Vogue Australia and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. Her work through the years eventually landed her with The Society Management in 2013.
Throughout 2014 the prolific model worked for bookings to the likes of Givenchy, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, Ports 1961, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and countless others.

Moving through 2015, Kendall worked the catwalks for companies such as Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Micheal Kors, Fendi, H&M, Givenchy, Elie Saab and countless others. Kendall built a significant portfolio for herself and eventually became such an icon that every fashion company, firm and magazine wanted a piece of her.
In 2016, Jenner and her well-known colleague and co-fashion model, Cara Delevingne, had their wax figures installed in Madame Tussauds’s London Fashion Week Experience event. Kendall once again walked for companies to the likes of Chanel, Fendi, Versace, Elie Saab, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors. She shot editorials and covers in Vogue magazines around the world, as well as editorials in LOVE, Vanity Fair, W Korea and Self Service Magazine. The prolific fashion model also did campaign features for many companies, including Calvin Klein, Demilab and Mango.
