Featured 5.6-5.12.19 | If creativity breeds creativity, then Kendall Conrad just might have a corner on the market. Born to an interior designer mother and an American matador-portrait artist-author father, Conrad grew up a fifth generation California girl who spent her formative years hanging out with literary giants like John Steinbeck and Joan Didion (NDB) and traveling the globe before she eventually settled on life as a successful fashion model (natch). But when your artistic inclinations lead you down a path less traveled, there’s no way you’re going to be satisfied with one career — you’re going to need at least three. Which is why Conrad added fashion designer (her eponymous line of clothing and accessories is a pure reflection of Kendall herself: elegant, adventurous and irreverent), semi-professional entertainer (she and her creative director husband, David Cameron, are at the epicenter of Northern California nightlife) and cookbook author (yes, cookbook author. Eat Well, Feel Well. If you don’t know, now you know) to her CV. And in case you still need convincing that Conrad is sure to be the most amazing guest at any dinner party, her penchant for parlor games and her obsession with sharks and espionage should certainly persuade you to snag the seat next to hers, because this beauty is full of surprises — in good way. Welcome to Kendall’s week.
