Kendall Jenner lands her biggest cover yet as she appears on the coveted September Issue of Vogue Magazine.
Kendall Jenner is proving to be much more than a mere social media sensation. The 20 year old starlet is a bonafide supermodel. The latest proof – the September cover of fashion’s most prolific bible, Vogue. The aptly titled, Generation K, issue is Kendall’s most iconic project yet.
Photographed by superstar fashion photography duo Mert and Marcus, Kendall poses confidently in a printed Gucci look. Topless, the model stands with her jacket open offering a gaze of complete conviction. Inside the issue, Jenner sports a layered assortment of Fall pieces from Maison Margiela, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Loewe, Valentino, Givenchy and more.
Kendall also sits down with the mag for an exclusive interview titled, The Face that Launched a Billion Likes. The model talks about everything from distancing herself from her “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s” reputation to the difficulties of modeling.
“Obviously, my success came after my sisters’–I got to see all of their mistakes and watch out for them,”
Kendall Jenner on her Dad Caitlyn’s Transformation:
“It’s superironic to think about now, but it’s something I can thank my dad for: how much of a tomboy I was. That’s why I think the whole thing–her transition–was really hard for me, because I was like, ‘But you taught me everything tomboy!’ ” It has gotten easier. “I knew it was going to have its rough phase,” she says. “But it’s all supernormal now. It’s not weird at all. Sometimes I look at a picture of my dad when she was a guy, and it makes me a little sad–I get emotional. You have to get past it–you’ve got a new person to love. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise–if that’s not the wrong way to say it,” she says, and then laughs at her choice of words.
Kendall Jenner on Not Inviting her Family to her First Marc Jacobs Runway Show:
“Marc invited my whole family to that first show, and I was like, ‘I love you guys, but can you please just not come?’ I was trying so hard to be taken seriously, like, ‘Guys: This is not a joke or a stunt; this is what I want to do with my life.’ I had to prove that I could do it.”
Kendall Jenner on Modeling:
“I don’t think that people understand how lonely it can be,” she said. “All you’re doing is traveling the world by yourself to do a job and then go back to your hotel by yourself. It’s a different life than you imagined.”
