It isn’t a secret that Kendall Jenner has been dissociating herself from her famous last name in order to make a name in the modeling world, but apparently the Keeping up with the Kardashians star has done so somewhat officially on paper!

Designer Michael Kors was weighing in on his opinion of the new supermodel – he told E! News that she is a “strong, powerful, great-looking girl” – but then let it slip that her business card says only “Kendall.”

"I love that her card just says Kendall," the designer told the outlet, referring to the former reality starlet’s move to drop her last name professionally. "So she's not trading on her name and I think she's going to have a great career."

But as previously reported, some of the other models on the catwalk still gave Jenner a hard time despite all of her efforts to prove that she’s not cashing in on her A-list name.

“The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn’t think it was fair that she was there,” an insider explained to In Touch magazine. “They thought she was getting special treatment and just weren’t okay with it.”

But the models didn’t just give her grief - they also decided to mess with the teen, who walked on the runways of Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenberg, among others.

“They started acting so bitchy— some even put out their cigarettes in Kendall’s drink!” the insider revealed. “Models can be cruel, especially with someone new and entitled.”

Do you think removing her last name is a good idea? Sound off in the comments below.
