Kendall Jenner makes her NYFW debut at Michael Kors show alongside pals Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk

Michael Kors tapped some of the world’s top supermodels to debut his Spring Summer 2022 collection at New York Fashion Week on Friday. 

And among them were none other than Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk who all brought Kors’ urban romance’ themed-collection to life at Tavern On The Green in Central Park. 

The show marked Jenner’s NYFW debut, where she was seen opening the show in a bra and pencil skirt to a rendition of Nina Simone’s My Baby Just Cares For Me.

The 25-year-old model looked chic walking down the runway in a black bustier and high waisted black pencil skirt with a slim leather belt. 

She strutted her stuff in simple black heels and carried a bucket bag full of red roses before changing into another look.  

Following her on the runway was Shayk, 35, who wore a gingham dress with a classic silhouette and carried a straw bag filled with white roses.  

And their good pal Gigi, 26, looked to close the show in a sequin halter dress with crossed straps, with Kendall following behind her.

The model glam for the event included a slicked high ponytail with a slicked front piece and a scarlet lip.  

The runway show was monumental for Kors in that it marked 40 years in the industry and he had teased in a video ahead of the show that the collection would be rich with ‘gingham, leather and lace.’ 

The runway itself was angled and wove underneath rose bushes and rich foliage for an added romantic touch as part of Kors’ love letter to NYC.  

Singer Ariana DeBose was tapped to perform a range of classic jazzy covers including Nat King Cole at the show.
