Kendall Jenner may have just found herself a guardian Victoria's Secret Angel.
While the reality TV star has faced criticism from her modeling peers in the past due to the fact that she got her start thanks to a massive social media following, there's at least one supermodel who is more than happy to share the runway with her. In an interview with E! News on Tuesday, Adriana Lima revealed that she's always enjoyed working with Kendall and thinks she's a great addition to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show—adding that she believes the model works as just as hard as anyone else in the industry.
"I have worked with Kendall on runways before when we were in Europe, like Versace and also with Victoria's Secret," she said. "Kendall is very sweet and very nice, and it's always pleasant to work with someone like that."
"You know, she works as hard as we do, so I give her credit for all the effort," she continued. "And I think she is going to do great because Victoria's Secret is all about personality, and she has her own personality."
Given that this will Adriana's 16th(!!!) time walking the VSFS runway, it's fair to say she knows what she's talking about.
