Between walking at approximately one billion Fashion Week shows, modeling in campaigns for Estee Lauder and Calvin Klein, and, hanging out with "The New Brat Pack," Kendall Jenner has had a very busy winter. Fortunately, the warmer weather shows no sign of slowing her down, if her new Harper's Bazaar cover story—shot by Karl Lagerfeld, NBD—is any indication.
On the cover, Kendall wears Chanel Haute Couture from actual head to toe—there are boots, apparently, that are out of frame—and the coverline reads, simply, "Kendall Jenner: Transformed."
Inside, the idea of her transformation from reality star to legitimate model is expounded upon—the box-centric, multi-page shoot serves, according to the magazine, as a metaphor for Kendall's arrival into fashion. I mean, posing in a fringe-y bonnet among shredded paper isn't easy—think of the paper cuts!
One of the biggest proponents of Kendall's career is, of course, the shoot's photographer—Karl Lagerfeld. In the interview, Kendall explains how nervous she was when she first met him and how now, after working together, they're "totally BFFs." She also reveals that Karl has taught her "how to be a better model." One of his "pointers" must've been how to pose with yourself while wearing two different Dior Haute Couture outfits, right?
Kendall also discusses her model clique, including (other) BFF Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and Joan Smalls. Of Cara, she says, "We balance each other out. I chill her out and she makes me fun."
Kendall describes the outfit she most regrets as "green denim pants, full neon green." In this shot, she may have on a green Valentino Haute Couture dress and partially green hair, but it is definitely not embarrassing—like, at all. You've come so far, KJ.
When asked whose style she loves, Kendall keeps it in the family, citing Kim Kardashian as her fave. She says, "I think she could be a major fashion icon. It's so fun to be in Paris with her, but I'll walk out and be like, 'Oh, my God, I love my outfit,' and then I'll see Kim and I'll be like, 'My outfit sucks compared to yours!'" One outfit that definitely doesn't suck? This white Atelier Versace dress—hellooooo.
