Kendall Jenner showed off a new blonde look at Burberry’s London Fashion Week presentation on Monday.
The 23-year-old, who regularly takes breaks from the catwalk, skipped New York Fashion Week earlier this month and made her spring 2020 debut with a surprise appearance at Riccardo Tisci’s presentation, held at the Troubadour White City Theatre.
The reality TV star opened the show wearing a cream jacket emblazoned with a “Burberry England” logo and black skirt with fringed hemline, but it was her new bleached blonde locks that caught attention.
Kendall also showed off her new, lighter tresses, which were dyed by celebrity hairstylist Guido Palau, by filming a short Instagram Stories video in her car and posting a picture of her with Tisci and fellow Burberry models Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Agyness Deyn backstage at the show. She was also seen rocking her new look at a Tyler, the Creator gig later that night.
The model, who is known for her signature dark hair, has gone light before – she previously dyed her hair platinum blonde to walk the runway for Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show in March 2016.
Kendall’s inclusion in the Burberry spectacle comes shortly after she admitted to Vogue that she missed strutting her stuff on the runways while perched front row during New York Fashion Week.
“Today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk,'” she said, before teasing that she would be returning soon.
Celebrities including Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa, Anwar Hadid, and FKA Twigs looked on as models presented Tisci’s Evolution collection, inspired by the Victorian era in which Burberry was founded. The line featured fitted waists, elaborate sleeves and scarves, streetwear, and a new take on the classic trench coat.
Model-turned-actress Deyn, who returned to the runway for the first time since 2015, wore the classic beige trench adorned with jewelled embellishments, an oversized striped shirt, and pale pink tailored trousers, while Shayk sported pale purple trousers, a blouse, and a large printed silk scarf.
