The day after Kendall Jenner's GQ cover drops, Kylie has some major cover news of her own—she is the star of Teen Vogue's May issue. While Kendall revealed in her GQ interview that her modeling career will not be featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie's Teen Vogue feature was, apparently, filmed for a "larger story line" on the show. We can see why, TBH—this desert shoot—with its "Mad Max-meets-Coachella vibe"—obviously took a lot of work.
The shoot features two of Kylie's best friends and a gaggle of models—not a bad crew to be in the desert with, IMHO. Kylie manages to stick out in all white, while her cohorts favor a more neutral palette, which could easily have come from Kanye's first Adidas collection, right?
In another shot, she trades in her white outfit for a flowy green dress and gives us a better view of her hair, which appears to be long, featuring a few locs, and accessorized with a gray scarf.
The magazine describes Kylie's makeup as a "stripped-down beauty look, using a neutral color palette." One thing that definitely isn't stripped-down, though, is Kylie's makeup routine IRL—when she goes out, she goes all out. She explains, "A good night out is, like, two and a half hours for full makeup, curling hair, whatever."
On the cover, though, things are very toned down, with Kylie wearing very natural-looking makeup and her hair up. While we've grown accustomed to seeing Kylie more made-up, she recognizes that there's one type of selfie people are particularly into—she says, "I've realized people really like my no-makeup selfies." This cover may not be a selfie, but the low-key vibe is definitely the same.
While the full issue won't be out until April 28, Teen Vogue shared a preview video from the shoot, which you can watch above. For more interview quotes and behind-the-scenes photos, head over to their site.
