Givenchy have just released a video to go with their Autumn Winter 2014 ad, with their campaign stars shaking it in Givenchy. Kendall Jenner dances in the pleated gown she wore in the Givenchy show way back at Paris Fashion Week.
EARLIER... Seeing as Kendall Jenner dominated fashion month, things were set in place for the 18-year-old model to out-ad Cara on the Autumn Winter 2014 campaign trail. We've said it before and we'll say it again, we'll spend the whole of 2014 keeping up with Kendall. Becausethe model has landed one of the most sought after campaigns around... drumroll please... you guessed it... Givenchy!
Mr Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, took to Instagram to upload the first snap of Kendall in the campaign. She's looking suitably Givenchy gorgeous in a snakeskin dress while perching on a bed alongside Jamie Bouchert and Mariacarla Boscono. She blends right in, no? And has us recalling a certain Grazia magazine cover. Kendall's comment? 'SICK,' she says on her Instagram account. According to Givenchy, the images are all about Riccardo Tisci inviting his gang to take part in a rave party, where his muse Mariacarla mingles with Kendall and co. Sounds like our kind of party.

Indeed, the campaign makes perfect sense. Kendall made her Paris Fashion Week debut in the Givenchy Autumn Winter 2014 show after a long-running Kardashian konnection. Riccardo Tisci and the Kardashian-Jenner-West family are ol' pals - a friendship that was cemented when Kim Kardashian wed in a white lace Givenchy Couture gown last month.
In an interview earlier this year, Mr Tisci called Kim "the Marilyn Monroe of our age." He also defended her after the Met Ball 2013 backlash: 'She is a really good friend, and I am very happy she came to the Met for the first time. I love Kim. Doing maternity was fantastic. I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment, because Kim always supports me. She is the future wife of a really good friend of mine.' He added: ''I wanted to have a moment of family…Kim, Kanye and the baby. It will be a family that I will be close to."

We imagine that this is the first of many Kendall Jenner Kampaigns. She's got plenty of industry leaders on her side, including LOVE Magazine's Editor in Chief Katie Grand who said to Grazia Daily: "Fashion always wants a new darling! She's unique in wanting to turn her back on her celebrity when it comes to modelling, she's with a smaller very respected agency called Society who work specifically with high end designers, photographers and stylists. It would have been easy for Kendall to go with a bigger agency and gone down a celebrity route but she wants to be taken seriously as a model just like the rest of them."
