It's been a big year for Kendall Jenner.
The top supermodel, who graced her fourth American Vogue cover for the April 2018 issue, became an aunt twice over, was named the Fashion Icon of the Decade by the Daily Front Row, dialed back on her industry duties and learned one of her biggest lessons yet in the wake of controversy.
It was nearly a year ago in April 2017 that the 22-year-old star appeared in a Pepsi commercial that was swiftly met with national backlash. Less than 24 hours after the spot's debut, the brand ultimately pulled it.
"Obviously, my intention was not to hurt anyone," Jenner told Vogue. "Honestly, I just hid out. It hurt me that I hurt other people."
As she continued, "I've been yelled at before, stepped in controversy before, but nothing to that extent. You can never really prepare for something like that."
