    Kendall Jenner has turned herself into a "goth goddess" for fashion designer Marc Jacobs' new fall campaign.

    Jacobs has shared a photo on Instagram of an advertisement featuring Jenner made up in all black with high platform heel boots and wearing white makeup.

    KENDALL, Supermodel I will always remember the first time I met Kendall during castings for our Fall 2014 fashion show. Katie Grand invited her to come by the studio for a brief introduction before she was photographed for the model boards. At the time, I knew very little about Kendall… As history now has it, her very first fashion show was for Marc Jacobs Fall 2014. Kendall has since been a part of every show along with being featured in our Spring ’15 ad campaign (also shot by David Sims). It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire. During castings for Fall ’16, due to the enormous height of the boots we designed, we had to make certain that each girl was able to walk (and walk safely). Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one. For me, it is the ability of a model to effortlessly transform into a look and character that makes her so appealing and inspiring. Photographed by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad as a Goth Goddess is the sweet, kind and ultimate professional, Kendall Jenner.

    The former creative director for Louis Vuitton said that during the casting process for the Fall 2016 campaign, due to the enormous height of the boots, it was important to find a girl who was able to "walk safely" in them.

    "Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one," Jacobs wrote.

    Jacobs goes on to say Jenner is "sweet, kind and the ultimate professional."
