Kendall Jenner may have drawn the scorn of some models because of her celebrity family, but she’s having no trouble finding celebrity models to pal around with at Paris Fashion Week, where she’s being treated like a rock star.

Kendall isn’t the only one with a celebrity background or fashion connections.

Her BFF Cara Delevingne is the younger sister of top UK model Poppy Delevingne, and they come from a wealthy London family with distant royal connections.

Kendall’s other Paris Week companion Gigi Hadid, also has a reality television connection. Her mother, Yolanda Foster appears on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

The Kardashian clan member, however, hasn’t pleased everyone.

Model Arisce Wanzer slammed Jenner last November in an open letter, claiming her rapid success as a model “cheapens [the] entire experience” for other models.

Her gripe was basically that Kendall was taking a spot in the lineup at fashion shows that some other model might have gotten who had gone through the rigors of coming up in the business, attending endless casting calls and even learning a new language.

She also blasted Jenner for her reality television family and the excesses they enjoy, and half-sister Kim Kardashian’s rise to fame based on a sex tape.

Kendall was also dissed by models Binx Walton and Lexi Boling in mean Instagram messages posted on a fashion magazine Web site. They raised similar objections about too much attention and too little experience as a model.

There’s no question Kendall’s got the goods to be a top model. She’s a willowy 5-feet, 10-inches tall and naturally beautiful. She would probably be a runway star without the connections.

Has she paid her dues? Well, look at it this way. She’s related to the Kardashians.
