The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Star Reveals In A TV Interview With Former Flame Harry Styles That She Was Told To Take Her Shirt Off After Turning 18 Years Old.
Kendall Jenner was encouraged to take her clothes off after turning 18 years old in order to get ahead in the modelling industry.
The supermodel is the highest-paid star in the business but, speaking on Tuesday’s December 10 instalment of “The Late Late Show” with guest host Harry Styles, she revealed she was told to “take the shirt off” almost immediately after celebrating her 18th birthday.
Kendall appeared on the show alongside Tracee Ellis Ross, and the 47-year-old recalled modelling at age 19 with her “boobies out,” adding that Naomi Campbell told her that if she was a model you “wear what they give you.”
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star identified with Tracee’s experience, adding, “My boobs were out the first show I ever did. I had just turned 18 and they were like, ‘Take the shirt off.’ ”
The advice clearly proved fruitful for Kendall, however, as she banked $22.5 million in the 12 months prior to June 2018 to top that year’s ranking of the highest-paid models, according to Forbes, toppling closest-contender Karlie Kloss from the summit, who earned $13 million.
