Most members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have used their famous surnames to their advantage, but one family member believes her last name is holding her back. Kendall Jenner has decided to drop her last name to boost her modelling career.

Kendall will now just be known as, er, “Kendall”. The 18-year-old, who recently made her Vogue debut, will simply be known by her first name.

'People didn't take me seriously'

Kendall recently said that her famous last name is more of a curse than a blessing when it comes to her modelling career. "What I have has almost worked against me,” she said of her Kardashian-Jenner link. "I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model, because of the TV show.

“I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn't recognise me. I was like: 'Thank you. Please don't recognise me.’.”
