Kendall Jenner made her first catwalk appearance of the season this afternoon as she supported Riccardo Tisci on his Burberry debut during London Fashion Week.
The highly anticipated debut from the former creative director of Givenchy saw no celebrities invited to sit on the front row, marking a stark contrast to Burberry’s former shows and to Tisci’s approach at Givenchy. However, a number of A-list models did take to the catwalk, including the likes of Irina Shayk, Stella Tennant, Jourdan Dunn, Natalia Vodianova and, of course, Jenner.
This is the model’s first catwalk appearance since walking in the Versace menswear show in June – and will almost certainly be the only show she walks for in London.
Speaking at the Longchamp show during New York Fashion Week as she sat on the front row alongside Kate Moss, the model commented on rumours that she would not be waking in any shows.
“It’s always fun to be on the other side of things and get to be on the other side of the craziness,” she told W. “I actually enjoy it. I love being able to see the collections when they are brand new.”
Jenner – along with her famous family – have long been big supporters of Tisci, particularly during his time at the helm of Givenchy. The model’s half-sister, Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West (and even their baby daughter North) were firm fixtures on his front row.
However, for his Burberry debut, the designer clearly chose to keep the focus on the collection, opting not to have any famous people on the front row.
