Kylie Jenner is an odd celebrity. A lot of people I know have never heard of her. But for a huge amount of people she’s one of the biggest stars on the planet. Almost 50 million people follow her on Instagram. Only 6 people in the world have more followers. Mental!
I got asked to photograph her 18th birthday party in Montreal last summer and it was fascinating, especially for someone who has no interest in her or the Kardashians whatsoever. Why would I?
The day itself was crazy hot. One of the hottest days of the year. Kylie arrived by helicopter and then speedboat to a beach club full of beautiful people, champagne and a $3,000 cake that was thrown into the crowd rather than being eaten.
Thanks a lot to Marlon for recommending me for the job.
