After Kylie Jenner made headlines last week for her pink-and-gold bikini pics, Kendall Jenner dropped some snaps of her own on Instagram. Kendall casually posed in a white thong bikini with a yellow floral pattern. She appeared in a series of photos lounging outside on a chaise lounge wearing an orange baseball hat. Over 6.5 million people liked the photos, which you can swipe through here:
Despite Jenner regularly making headlines for her outfits, the model has kept a relatively low profile. One of her last big interviews was back in September, when she addressed the state of the fashion industry to W. Regarding social media’s impact, she said, “Social media has absolutely opened up the fashion world to so many different people and ideas. We’re always expanding into new apps and new platforms and new things. It’s bringing the audience into the whole experience and really pushing people in the fashion world to be their most creative selves and to think, what can I come up with next?”
The outlet also asked her how she chooses what projects in her career to prioritize, given that Jenner is a model but also a reality star and entrepreneur with a tequila brand, 818. “Modeling has been a part of my life for a really long time. There was a time when it was my highest priority and focus,” she started. “I love that I’m at a place now where I can compartmentalize different aspects of my life. I’m heavily involved in growing my businesses and giving them a lot of attention, and I love being able to be on set for things that I love doing. At a certain point, it was all moving so fast, but now I feel like I can really appreciate it a lot more and be super present.”
Romantically, Jenner has been seen on dates with Bad Bunny over the last month, but has never commented on their relationship herself. A source told Entertainment Tonight on March 9 that “they’re taking things slow for now and seeing where things go in the future. They both really like each other and are just hanging out and having a good time. They get along very well and have mutual friends, so the people around them really like them together. Her family is supportive of their relationship. Everyone is happy that Kendall’s happy.”
