I Just Can’t Get Enough of Kendall Jenner and Her Vintage Hermès Kelly

It's giving quiet luxury

Believe it or not, I get fatigued from looking at Hermès bags, supermodels, and supermodels carrying Hermès bags every now and again.

I do admit that I quite enjoy looking at street-style photos of models both on and off duty. It’s fascinating to see how they dress, what they carry, and what trends they are choosing to follow, given that they are immersed in the fashion world.

Still, I, too, like many of you, do tire of following what the filthy rich are wearing (and carrying) because it’s simply not my reality, or most people’s realities for that matter. Despite all that, I’m coming here with my tail between my legs to admit that I simply cannot stop obsessing over Kendall Jenner and her vintage Hermès Kelly bag.

Kendall Jenner’s Old-Money Style

KJ was spotted late last month strolling the streets of Paris in a variety of quiet luxury looks. A stark contrast from the looks she wore on the runway for the Jacquemus Fall 2023, which was partly what brought her to Paris in the first place, Kendall seems to be fully embracing old money style just like the rest of us.

Once again, I hate to say it, but I am obsessed.

The overall look is simple but chic. From her sleek black headband and classic sunnies to the fitted-bodiced Alaia mini dress that is the perfect silhouette, I haven’t been able to get these images of Kendall out of my head.

The real star of the show, though, is Kendall’s vintage Hermès Kelly bag, which seems to be a new addition to the model’s collection. We’ve followed Kendall long enough to have a fairly good idea of the bags in her rotation, and I can’t say I recall ever seeing Kendall carrying this bag before.

Suddenly I feel the need to trade my sneakers for ballet flats and start calling everyone darling. Just me?

Kendall has never been a logo girl…but serious question is it quiet luxury when you flaunt your wealth in other ways like telling the world how much everything costs. Either way the look is classic Kendall to me.

I don’t think a reasonable person would put “Kardashian” or “Jenner” and “quiet” in the same sentence. 🤪

It’s a great look, but it’s not an “old money” look. The giveaway is the hemline.

The bag doesn’t suit the rest of the out fit.
She looks like she couldn’t afford a fresh new one so had to get a 40-year-old tired box compromise.

There is absolutely nothing old money or quiet luxury about the way KJ dresses. This is one outfit, one of her many bags, and we will probably never see it again.

You can say what you like about her, but for me, what makes KJ a “real model” is that she – or more precisely her body – makes things look awesome. This dress is not for everybody 😀
I like the look and yes, now I need a vintage Kelly, too…it adds such a cool vibe to an outfit!

I like Kendal from the beginning, but not the rest of her sisters. In this pictures, Kendal is looking so simply classic and gorgeous.

seriously? the dress is too short, too tight and doesn’t look like it belongs with the bag. A little straw bag or a smaller hand held tote would be a better fit. The vintage Kelly bag is lovely – it just doesn’t belong to this style of dressing. I dont see this as quiet luxury- but maybe I am missing the point.
