Paris Jackson’s been transitioning into a bona fide member of the fashion set for some time now: sitting front row at a major fashion show (check), landing on the cover of a major fashion glossy (check), and signing with big league agency IMG Models (check). And now, Michael Jackson’s daughter can count the ultimate celeb kid-turned-model Kendall Jenner as a friend.
The two were spotted thrift shopping at Melrose Trading Post, a Los Angeles flea market, in their off-duty best. Jenner was sporting a pair of cropped-flared mom jeans with a fuzzy Kermit-green sweater and a miniature Louis Vuitton Speedy bag, while Jackson wore distressed boyfriend jeans, Converse high-tops, and a sweatshirt wrapped around her waist. Jackson finished her look off with a wooden peace-sign necklace and a low-slung messenger bag.
It’s actually not a huge surprise that the girls are friends — their families have a ton of history! Jenner’s older sister Kim Kardashian actually dated Jackson’s cousin TJ back in high school (and spent her 14th birthday at Jackson’s late father’s home, Neverland Ranch!). Kourtney Kardashian has babysat Jackson’s second cousins, and the Kardashian sisters and their mom, Kris Jenner, attended the King of Pop’s funeral in 2009 to pay their respects.
And now that Jackson is embarking on her fledgling modeling career, the Estee Edit ambassador can probably give her some good pointers… while browsing old records and vintage clothing, of course.
