A good deal of people in fashion industry assumed Kendall Jenner — who's on a career high as of late if you hadn't noticed — would be modeling in this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. So it came as a bit of a surprise when her name wasn't included on the list.
But according to a new report, the reality star decided to forgo the lingerie catwalk for a completely different gig — with designer Karl Lagerfeld!
While the VS Angels have been traipsing around London in preparation for the show, Kendall and her new bestie, fellow model Cara Delevingne, have been snapping photos around Salzburg, Austria, where the Chanel Creative Director will be presenting his latest collection today — the same day VS films its annual TV event.

The word around town is that both girls chose to walk for Karl instead of donning wings. “It’s a big deal in the modeling world that Kendall and Cara are skipping the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to go to Austria and walk in Karl’s show,” a source tells 'People' magazine.

The insider claims the decision came as a surprise to some in Kendall's posse. “Kendall is Karl’s new girl and it’s a bold statement, because its been Kendall’s dream to walk in Victoria’s Secret," the source tells the mag. "But she followed in her BFF Cara’s footsteps and took her advice to go with Karl."
And by the looks of it, Kendall and Cara don't regret their choice one bit! The pair have been inseparable lately, partying the night away at the British Fashion Awards on Dec. 1 and even sharing the cover of 'Love' magazine — in an intimate embrace, no less.
