Washington, DC, United States (4E) – Kendall Jenner has met President Barack Obama for the first time during the last White House Correspondent’s Dinner for the Democratic ruler.
The supermodel attended the event wearing a designer gown. She reportedly wore a strapless black Vivienne Westwood gown. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star ran into the President during her attendance in the event and she took to Snapchat to share the experience.
Jenner shared, "I just met Obama and this is how I feel. He was like, 'Say hi to Kim and Kanye .' I was like 'Okay.'" As per the video, Jenner seemed that she cannot contain the excitement she felt upon meeting the president of the United States.
Later on in the evening, Obama also gave a shout out to the model. He shared, "Kendall Jenner is also here. And we had a chance to meet backstage. She seems like a very nice young woman. I'm not exactly sure what she does. But I am told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof."
The model was invited to attend the annual event on behalf of USA Today. She has been a supporter of the Rock the Vote moment recently. During National Voters’ Registration Day, the supermodel urged her 55 million followers to get involved with the 2016 Presidential elections.
She said in a video, "Every day, we vote. We're able to express our opinions online with links and hashtags , but when it comes to the right to vote, it always hasn't been that easy, especially for women. Because of suffragettes and their battle, gender doesn't matter, but your vote always can. I'm Kendall Jenner . I'm 19 and I'm here to rock the vote."
Jenner was with Gabrielle Union, Miles Teller and Alan Cumming at the event and they all shared the same table. Jenner took to social media to talk about the event. She shared, "This is so crazy. Honored to be here # WHCD # RockTheVote ."
