Kylie took to social media on Friday with what appears to be two sneak peeks at the frames. Her Instagram pic shows a pair of chic gold tortoiseshell aviators featuring the brand's logo, and a Snapchat features her modeling the same pair next to Kendall.
The sisters' collection, which the Jenners were on hand to debut at Nordstrom in Los Angeles this week, is growing rapidly and already includes apparel, footwear and accessories (Coachella-ready wide brim hats, anyone?).

No timetable's been released for the line, but if we were to predict the styles, we'd expect a range of covetable aviators, considering they're Kendall's signature sunglasses (seriously, Kendall without her aviators is like Kylie without muted matte lip color—a decidedly rare occurrence).
Kylie's more experimental with her protective eyewear, often wearing boxy, oversized sunglasses or throwback cat-eye styles. But she loves a good pair of aviators, too (after all, they look good on almost everyone).

You guys, Kendall just unloaded a mind-blowing Clueless fashion fact on us today via her app. Remember the amazing gold chain holster Cher held her cell phone in during the movie's famous tennis court scene ("There goes your social life")? The supermodel and bestie of Chanel maestro Karl Lagerfeld clued us into the fact that the designer was so inspired by that Coco-reminiscent, long chain holster that he decided to create one himself after watching the cultural touchstone.
But that's not the only tasty nugget the current Vogue cover star had to share: She also notes that Cher's pure white Calvin Klein dress (the one that befuddled her father, producing one of the greatest interactions in cinematic history) attained so much throwback hype in 2010 that the brand rereleased it. Here's hoping they do it again!
Not only are we happy to include Snapchat's newest member in our fashion history-obsessed circle, but we're glad to have yet another reason justifying why Clueless is, was, and will be an influence on what we wear—even to Ms. Jenner who, fun fact, was born the same year the film was released! We look forward to more of her pearls of wisdom, even ones she didn't actually live through.
On the heels of her special-edition Vogue, and older sibs Kim and Kourtney jumping on the Snapchat bandwagon, Kendall Jenner has blessed our news feeds with her very first snap story! Today, while trotting around sunny L.A. with sister Kylie to promote the launch of their namesake fashion line at Nordstrom, the 20-year-old supermodel sent out a flurry of characteristically chic pics and videos. Naturally, she was wearing a black-and-white cutout gingham jumpsuit from the collection giving us serious OOTD envy.
With the addition of Kendall, we're just waiting on fitness and organizational queen Khloe to get onboard and start posting hyper speed workout snaps.
Check out her first snap here:

While it seems like Kendall Jenner has a “moment” at least every week, her announcement today is quite a major one: the 20-year-old supermodel nabbed the cover of Vogue’s special edition issue (available to New York and L.A. subscribers with their April issue). Up front, the social media queen wears a Proenza Schouler ruffle top and bikini bottoms that might just be the out-of-left-field summer look we’ve been waiting for.
A peek inside the Kendall-centric issue reveals fashion shoots (snapped by mega photographers Mario Testino and Theo Wenner), a Q&A between Jenner and designer Tory Burch, and killer images from the beginning of Kendall’s modeling career. Not only does she dish about being one of the most followed people on the planet—and how she manages to maintain her down-to-earth demeanor—but also her self-titled clothing line she shares with little sis Kylie.
The most surprising tidbit we gathered from an interview about Kendall’s social domination was that when she posted her most-liked Instagram photo (Jenner laying on a bathroom floor in a white lace, her hair positioned into several hearts, which has double-tapped 3.5 million times), she wasn’t even trying to put up a good image and that, actually, she “was having a bad day.” If only our low points were as inspiring and angelic as hers.

Fashion-wise, part of the whole celebrity deal is pricey designer clothes, right? We're used to priceless red-carpet gowns and luxe bags, but it's still shocking when you see the price tag attached to some items—staple status doesn't always mean basic prices. Proving the point is one of Kendall Jenner's latest looks, worn out and about in Paris and detailed by the the Kardashians' go-to stylist Monica Rose. Her model-off-duty combo included a perfectly beat-up tee that looks like it's seen some serious wear (similar to the white style seen above). We're willing to bet those perfectly placed holes didn't get there through years and years of tough love, but rather a pair of designer's scissors, wielded with scalpel-like precision. Now, thanks to Miss Monica, we know the cost for such artful dishevelment: a cool $350.
The tee is by LA-based Unravel, a line of heavily distressed pieces and cool-girl basics (like sweats and bomber jackets). If you want KJ's style, a similar tee is up for pre-order now, or you can look for a more budget-friendly alternative. IRO has a less-ripped version, and Nasty Gal's After Party line specializes in the rough-and-tumble look.

With all kinds of spring style right around the corner, now's the time to start thinking about the outfits you'll be living in and what you might want to pull out of the far reaches of your closet. You're sure to be digging for the usual (bikinis, cutoffs, and breezy sundresses included), but Kendall Jenner would like you to reconsider something else this year. The model ended last summer in something we thought we might never see again—a cutoff denim miniskirt—and we're fully expecting her to bring it out again because, against all odds, the piece somehow looked covetable on her. Amazed, we studied her looks to figure out what specific elements make it work.
Kendall's tricks for keeping it 2016, not 2006, is all about a basic top and shoes that offer more polish than the flip flops you were probably wearing 10 years ago. Consider the piece a skinny jean alternative and try on with a favorite tee or sleek tank à la Kendall. Most importantly, rethink whatever shoes you were wearing with the skirt back in the day. Where the Hollister and Abercrombie ads from the last decade would've shown the staple surf'ed out with rubber sandals, the denim mini of today needs to be worn with cool-girl ankle boots.

Watch for some weirdly entertaining facts about the Kardashians and Jenners.
It's fair to assume that every single one of the Kardashian-Jenners has an amazing closet (honestly, even Corey Gamble probably has a pretty sick walk-in situation). A recent chat with Kendall Jenner confirmed that the family's Oaks of Calabasas 'hood contains some of Southern California's best collections of clothing and accessories, and all the sisters have their particular strengths. Luckily, they're pretty good at sharing. Err, for the most part.
"We're all super generous minus Kylie. Kylie and I always fight over clothes. It's, like, a problem. But it's because we grew up together and we just grew up fighting over clothes," she told People before getting specific about where to go for what. "Kourtney has good statement pieces. Kim has amazing things you could never find [elsewhere]," and momma Kris has the major diamond studs you borrow if you want some serious bling.
So which sister has the most impressive collection of heels, boots, et al? "Khloe has the best shoe selection, and she's my size!" quipped Kendall.
The new closet info follows up on what we already know about the fam. Kendall has told us Kim's situation is the one you'd be most likely to get legit lost in, and there's absolutely no way that anyone has a fitness closet to best Khloe's. Clearly, lots of space is required for these ladies—don't forget that they're fashion ninjas.
We all know their faces—there’s no need to even utter their surnames: Kendall, Kylie, Gigi, Bella. But it turns out there’s a lot in a last name, at least in social rank, according to some statistics created for fashionista.com by analytics firm D’Marie. They broke down some not-so-surprising numbers on the overall influence of our favorite famous families (say that ten times fast) and ranked them based on engagement on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
In first place are the sisters Jenner (shocker!), who account for nearly half of the overall social pull among the thousands of ranked individuals. Snagging second are the Beckhams, as in David, Victoria, and Brooklyn, who’ve conquered the worlds of sports, fashion, pop, and modeling in spades, respectively, and take up a little more than a quarter of this familial matrix. Next up, Cara and Poppy Delevingne, followed by the youngest Smiths, the androgynous fashion favorites Jaden and Willow. Shockingly sliding into last place are the Hadids (Gigi and Bella). But as social media rankings change by the day, hour, minute, and second, we think it’s safe to say that this will change very soon.
A quick glance at the overall list reads like a social media dream, revealing the total following of our pop culture idols. Taking the crown is Kendall (again, contain your gasping), who boasts 74,526,272 loyal subjects. But the key to her ranking isn’t having the most followers (second place diva Taylor Swift has 201,940,796 followers and baby sis Kylie comes in third with 75,435,149), but rather in overall engagement across all three social platforms. Meaning: you can climb up the leaderboard on Instagram (we see you, Selena), but if you aren’t also being mindful of your Facebook and Twitter clan, you won’t make the cut.
We’re not enthusiasts, but we can get on board with these kinds of numbers. Let’s see how Gigi and Bella use this intel to get ahead—watch your backs, Cara and Poppy!
All in all, though, you probably don't need a study to tell you how influential these families are when it comes to personal style—including everything from the leggings Kendall loves to the girls' knack for wearing things in unexpected ways.

Unless you're the one playing, there's absolutely no wrong shoe to wear to a basketball game. Kendall and Kylie Jenner really drove the point home while sitting courtside at an Lakers game in L.A. last night, with both picking bold over-the-knee boots. Kendall's black and white lace-ups are by Sophia Webster, a pair she's rocked before and shared on Instagram (garnering one million likes, natch). Kylie's patent leather pick didn't show as much skin as her sister's statement makers, but the high-shine finish was still very flash. Presented side by side, it was Jenner style at its best: glam, over the top, and hard to ignore.
Thigh-high boots at a basketball game is nothing new for Kendall. She's done taupe leather Celine before and more Sophia Webster (paired with itty-bitty denim shorts). The shoe is a favorite of Victoria's Secret bombshells everywhere too—we saw plenty in street style shots before this year's show—and the look might never have come into vogue if not for a former Angel. Yup, the world can thank Gisele for making it happen.

Kendall Jenner in the fall 2016 Chanel show.
You probably have a hoodie or two in your closet—whether it's your latest athleisure buy, or a leftover from college. And if you saw the fall 2016 Balenciaga show, you know that, along with normcore parkas, puffers and oversized toppers, this zip-up weekend piece you've kept in your wardrobe is officially cool (again).
Karl Lagerfeld just cemented that notion with his fall 2016 Chanel show earlier today. His riff on the look was a petal-pink cropped style—worn by Kendall Jenner in the show—and he paired it with a matching midi dress. But we could also totally see someone like Kendall wearing it with a pair of her favorite leggings.
The hoodie in general is a really good transitional piece—layer it under a coat now on cooler days, and wear it on its own when it gets a bit warmer—and the idea of a more dressed-up style a la Chanel sharing closet space with your more casual sweatshirts is a fun one. This spring, go forth and hoodie.
There are two families we can't seem to get enough of: The Crawleys of Downton Abbey and—that's right—the Kardashians. While at first glance, these two bloodlines may seem to have little more in common than their expansive family trees, we can't stop thinking about how similar they are in terms of style. Sure, Lady Mary may choose a mid-length flapper dress while Kim Kardashian prefers a Yeezy bodysuit, but these stylish families are full of fashion twins. As we prepare to bid adieu to our beloved British family (please don't say it's so!), we can still celebrate the fact that we have a real-life equivalent in the Kardashians.
Lady Mary Crawley and Kim Kardashian West:
The leading ladies of their own 30-something generation, it's no surprise that each lady's overwhelming confidence translates into a my-way-or-the-highway mentality that has been so carefully asserted that we can't help but agree with every argument they make—at least until we think better of it. While Mary's love of fashion is asserted through dropped hemlines and blunt bob haircuts, Kim has single handedly brought back the bodysuit and duster coats—with Kanye's help. What's more: Both ladies are likely to find themselves sitting front row to support their favorite designers when fashion week comes around.
Lady Edith Crawley and Khloe Kardashian:
While both girls know what it's like to be the black sheep of the family while their sisters take the reigns (and attention!), they eventually emerged as the ones who, perhaps, knew better than everyone. They wait and watch when it comes to fashion, tackling trends after others have popularized them, but when they do choose to rock that new fashion statement, they look pretty awesome doing it.
Lady Rose MacClare and Kylie Jenner:
Rose and Kylie are the youths of their respective clans and they take full advantage (we'd like to think that if Snapchat were around in the 1920s, Rose would be the first one on board). They march to the beat of their own drum and change their clothing more often than most. While both girls may gravitate towards youthful statement pieces for casual days, when it's time to get dressed up, they look just as sophisticated as their elders in slim silhouettes and simple—yet jaw-droppingly beautiful—styles.
Lady Sybil Crawley and Kendall Jenner:
Though the aforementioned ladies may be stubborn and headstrong, it is Sybil and Kendall that are the true independent of their families. Whether it's attending rallies or flying around the world to open runway shows for countless international fashion weeks, these girls are never afraid of making a statement—especially when it comes to fashion. Not to mention that, nearly 100 years apart from one another, both girls appreciate the power of an awesome pair of pants!
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham and Kris Jenner:
Both #proudmamas of their respective clans and then some, these women rock the near-impossible job of juggling the many different personalities of their offspring. They often use fashion to prove that, though they may have decades of experience on their daughters and often know best, they aren't too old to relate to the young'uns and show them how it's done. The duo mixes and matches trendy with sophisticated, like topping an embellished dress their daughters may try to steal with a beautiful coat best suited to the matriarchs they are.
Martha Levinson and MJ Shannon:
The momager of the momager, these ladies may not be in the public eye very often but, when they are, they certainly have a zinger or two to share. They've spent a lifetime taking fashion risks and have a deep appreciation for the classics, with a little bit of added flair. Whether it's in leopard or lace, they always look chic.
