There are two clear rising stars in the modeling world this Fashion Month. First up is Kendall Jenner -- the second-youngest Kris Jenner offspring and star of her family's long-running reality show -- who was not only honored with a sexed up portrait by Mert and Marcus in W magazine, but also walked the runway exclusively for Marc Jacobs in New York and once again for Giles in London.

The only girl who's possibly having a better season than Jenner is fellow SoCal reality TV star Gigi Hadid, whose mom is a fixture on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from scoring the opening and closing slots in Jeremy Scott's runway show in New York, the 20-year-old covers the spring issue of CR Fashion Book, has a Ben Watts-lensed feature in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, and now, an editorial in the V magazine spring music issue.

Shot by Sebastian Faena in looks fit for a pin-up girl -- high-waisted Calvin Klein jeans and a Hervé Leger skirt sans top -- Hadid appears to be on a path to supermodel status. The only thing that could make her ascent even swifter? A runway appearance in Milan or Paris. Keep your eyes peeled for this one.
