Rumored to have had plastic surgery to improve her looks, Kendall Jenner made her debut walk for Christian Dior after her very modest start on the Sherri Hill runway back in 2011.
Five years later, the then 20-year-old was making waves on the runways of all the big names in the fashion industry.

Denying that she’s had a nose job and lip injections, Kendall said on her app in 2017 that her face is all-natural.
“It’s all so exhausting. As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn’t even make sense,” she wrote on the app that closed down later the same year. “It’s crazy because sometimes I feel like people just want me to lose.”

While admitting to practicing her iconic “over-lining” the lips strategy that makes her lips appear fuller than they actually are, Kendall denied she’s had artificial help. Her sister Kylie is rumored to have had her first plastic surgery when she was 17 years old
“When I deleted my Instagram back in November, people were saying, ‘Kendall deleted her account to have full facial reconstruction,'” she added.
“I think they might have been referencing the day Kylie and I did a Livestream for our book. We had to hurry, so I let Ky do my face. I never wear lip liner or lipstick unless it’s the occasional obvious red—and when I say never, I mean even when I’m doing a nude lip, it’s basically just gloss!”

“Anyway, I left all of the makeup on because we were so rushed and I went out and did my thing. I LOVED my makeup. I never say this, but I just felt so pretty. All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, ‘OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction—look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!’ I was like, this is CRAZY. I didn’t even address it at the time. Because if I address it, people are going to be like ‘Oh, so she’s defending herself—she must be guilty.’ Kylie saw it all unfold and felt bad, so she went on Snapchat and took the blame,” Kendall wrote.
“People forget that they’re talking about real people who have real feelings and actually live their everyday lives (for the most part) just like everyone else,” she concluded.
“Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem,” Kendall revealed about her skincare battle on her blog in 2015.

“I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face. Sure, I had crushes in high school, but I wouldn’t even think about looking at guys.”
“They have boobs and I don’t have boobs. Growing up being this little twiggy girl, I saw my sisters and always thought, ‘Oh no am I supposed to be more sexy like them?’”

In a YouTube video shared in February 2020, celebrity commentator Lorry Hill argues that Kendall “had a nose sometime between 2012 and 2013” and that her “nasal bones were broken and brought back together in a more narrow way.”
She also believes Kendall has had small cheek implants, an eyebrow lift, and buccal fat removal.
In March 2016, Kendall was photographed leaving the Dior show at the Paris Fashion Week with her momager, Kris Jenner, to pop by the Elie Saab showroom.
Kendall wore a printed button-down shirt with black jeans underneath a coat from TY-LR. The young model styled her black lipstick runway look with sunglasses and a top handle bag from Christian Dior, plus her favorite pair of boots: the “Amele” by Sandro.
