Kendall Jenner shows off retro '70s fashion, wants you to rock the vote
Even though voting in presidential elections is not mandatory here in the U.S., it’s important to get involved and cast a vote—because the outcome affects all of us. And no one knows that better than 20-year-old Kendall Jenner.
You might not think of her as a particularly aggressive advocate for voting, or even politics in general, and more of a fashion icon (which would be a fair assumption), but her goal is to show that fashion and voting actually have more in common than we think.
What we mean by that is, Jenner appeared in a 30-second clip by the Independent Journal Review and Rock the Vote, posing in strikingly different outfits that represent a few major turning points in history for young voters.
The video begins in 1971, where Jenner is dressed like a flower child in honor of the 26th Amendment (which, by the way, gave 18-year-olds the right to vote) and ends in 2012, when a whopping 20 million young voters cast deciding votes that ensured President Obama would stay in office for a second term.
To mark the occasion, Kendall wears a fitted navy suit and heels; perfect for climbing the corporate ladder while maintaining a seriously kickass style. Her look is on-point, and confident to boot.
The message is loud and clear: young people should get out there and participate in politics, because these decisions shape our world.
Note: this video goes by quick, so you might want to watch it a couple of times to really see the different looks.
Thanks for reminding us that our voices all matter, and that we can all make an impact on our future.
