Kendall Jenner Chooses A Lebanese Design For Her Film Cameo
Red-carpet favourite Elie Saab will have a starring role in this upcoming blockbuster.
TV regular, cover girl, runway model – and now movie star.
Kendall Jenner is set to add another string to her already impressive bow with a cameo in Ocean’s Eight, a spin-off of the Ocean’s film series featuring a stellar all-female cast.
The 21-year-old, along with half-sister Kim Kardashian, will appear as herself in a brief appearance set at a fictional Met Gala.
And what gown did she pick to emulate the fashion event of the year? One by King of Couture Elie Saab, naturally.
The Lebanese designer is a red-carpet regular (dressing actress Jessica Biel at last week’s Golden Globes, in fact), and supplied an ethereal caped gown for Jenner’s turn on the silver screen.
Sister Kim plumped for a daringly sheer Givenchy with a built-in bodysuit, while Jenner’s delicate lace number featured a demure high neck and fluttery sleeves.
Katie Holmes, Adriana Lima and Vogue US editor Anna Wintour have also made cameos in the film, which stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway (to name just a few) and will hit screens in 2018.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians pair filmed their scenes in New York on Monday, shortly after Kim jetted back into the US following her long weekend in Dubai.
The mum-of-two was in town for a makeup masterclass, but also managed to slot in a lavish dinner at Atlantis, The Palm, a dune buggy ride, some mall time, and a heartwarming trip to a children’s disability centre.
The reality TV star’s special appearance at the Rashid Centre for the Disabled was a particular highlight, as she was welcomed with applause and a performing arts greeting before dishing out hugs to the children.
The 36-year-old also got involved with a spot of hula-hooping and boxing practice, as well as posing for plenty of selfies.
“There is no doubt that the visit of the superstar Kim Kardashian to the centre is an important recognition for the good reputation of the centre at the local and international level,” the centre’s CEO, Mariam Othman, told Gulf News.
“We all here in the centre felt very happy for the kind visit by Ms Kardashian and the time spent with the disabled children. Her good reaction with the children made them happy.”
