While we were already planning on buying V Magazine's new issue when it comes out on May 7 because—hi—Rihanna is on the cover, we now have two new reasons to rush out the second it hits newsstands: Kendall Jenner and a giant dog.
Like Rihanna's cover story for the issue, Kendall was shot by Steven Klein, who brought along his three Great Danes. Here, Kendall uses one as a very low chair, and explains, "Any chance that I can work with animals, I’m in." Remember when she hung out with a famous monkey for Allure? Kendall + animals = perfect photo shoot, TBH.
The bulk of the interview doesn't focus on animals, but on Calvin Klein, a brand Kendall recently became the face of. Kendall's first campaign is for Calvin Klein Jeans, a line which, according to the magazine, "is marketed as unisex." Kevin Carrigan, the global director of CK Jeans, explains, "I’ve always been into blurring gender lines, especially the girls borrowing from the boys. In this line of streetwear and denim pieces, a unisex approach felt right."
Olivier Rousteing—Balmain's Creative Director—recently sang Rihanna's praises for her ability to pair menswear and womenswear successfully. This growing emphasis on gender fluidity in fashion is a great thing, and it's especially great to have someone like Kendall—with almost 25 million Instagram followers to her name, and her father recently confirming that he is transgender—star in a campaign that underscores this notion.
Kendall is extremely humble about the whole thing, revealing, "This will be my first billboard on Sunset, which I’m ecstatic about. It’s really humbling, and honestly, I am a pretty shy person, but being part of the Calvin campaign and seeing myself up there will be a dream come true."
While you probably don't have the room to hang a Sunset-sized poster in your room, each issue of V comes with an exclusive fold out poster of Kendall, so you'll be able to celebrate her success, just on a smaller scale.
