Ready to meet Kenny?

These days you can’t walk around in Manhattan without running into Kendall Jenner (have you seen the Calvin Klein billboard on Houston?), but this time you get to meet her IRL! Jenner is coming by the Sephora store at 597 Fifth Avenue tomorrow at 7:00pm as the Guest Editor of the Estee Edit by Estee Lauder. The first 100 people to purchase any item from the Edit when the store opens at 9am will receive a wristband to meet her later that night. (pulsd)
