14-year-old Kylie Jenner, the littlest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, is getting ready to make her runway debut as part of Avril Lavigne‘s showing of her Abbey Dawn line at New York Fashion Week next Monday. The queen of mall punk style might not be the first person you’d mentally associate with the Kardashians, but they are actually pretty good friends. You see, Avril Lavigne is now dating Brody Jenner, half-brother to Kylie and step-brother to Kim, and hung out with the Kardashian klique at Kim’s recent wedding.
Despite the people involved, this is marginally less annoying than the whole “Ali Lohan iz high fashun” thing, because Avril Lavigne is not using her to model couture. The hoodie-and-t-shirt heavy collection is designed to appeal to insouciant teens who hang out at Hot Topic, so it’s definitely age appropriate. Does young Kylie dress like that in real life? Probably not. But maybe this will activate some dormant neo-Goth-punk-emo urges in her, which would be fun. Can you imagine her showing up to the family dinner table with an eyebrow ring and one of those Myspace exit wound haircuts? Or hiding in her room listening to Good Charlotte? Or dating that creepy Trace Cyrus kid??? Please, please, please let this happen.
