Even if the Hadids were better connected than Kendall, I still think Kendall was booking the better jobs/shows than Gigi and in a way Gigi had to earn her spot.
Because of the Ye connect 🤷🏻♀️
Sure, Yolanda is all buddy with photographers and Mohammed wined and dined plenty of investors, but Ye is friends with Riccardo Tisci, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, Phoebe Philo, etc. Kris couldn’t have hit up the line of any of those people and get Kendall the job. At least Yolanda knew people working in commercial brands and got Gigi that Guess campaign.
If Gigi and Bella made it as supermodels, then Kendall would have gotten there without Ye imo
The Hadid girls rise to fame as a model vs. Kendall’s is not comparable imo
Yolanda knows people directly and have ongoing relationships with them - she had friends in the fashion industry that were willing to help her kids out. Mohammed is also very well-connected within the industry so they had no problems getting their kids through the door. Kris didn’t have those type of connections prior to Ye. People didn’t them seriously, especially in fashion where the likes of Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, etc. considered the Kardashians “cheap” and “tacky”
