Chanel head honcho Karl Lagerfeld just launched the ad campaign for his eponymous label starring several of his favorite models, including Kendall Jenner.  

Shown in the behind-the-scenes video above, Lagerfeld had great things to say about Kendall. "She's great, she's modern," he says before calling her, "the girl of the moment." Lagerfeld goes on to say, "With castings like this you have to have the girl of the moment, the girl who represents certain types of woman or girl, or whatever you want, and she represents that perfectly." Huge praise coming from one of fashion's most important figures.

For her part, Kendall reciprocates the feeling, saying, "I love him, he's cool. He's an inspiration, and I'm a huge fan of everything he does."

Kendall has enjoyed enormous success in the past year and the latest words from Lagerfeld are just the cherry on top. In 2014, Kendall was the most popular model of the year, and walked in major fashion shows, including Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Chanel, and Balmain.  She has already picked up 2015 right where she left off, too, scoring a Marc Jacobs campaign.

With all this success, and the love from Lagerfeld, it's no wonder it's easy for Kendall to shut down the haters who claim she's only successful because of her famous family. However, she did ban Kim Kardashian from her runway shows, presumably to avoid exactly those types of assumptions.
