Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin

Kendall Jenner may have a modelling career that just won't quit right now, but could her best friend be about to take over?

Those cheekbones and pins alone should be enough to cement her top model cred.

The more seasoned (or shopping obsessive) among you will remember Cara back in her ASOS product modelling days, then fronting campaign after campaign until Christopher Bailey chose her as his star in Burberry Prorsum AW13 catwalk show.
