Kendall opens up about her father’s transition as she lands Vogue cover

She’s part of one of the world’s most famous families and has been on TV since she was a child, but that hasn’t made Kendall Jenner any less ambitious when it comes to forging her own career.

In the two years since she began modelling full-time, Kendall has walked for Chanel, Alexandra Wang and Victoria Secrets, as well as appearing on the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, GQ and Marie Claire but until now she has not covered the pinnacle of all fashion magazines: Vogue.  

Today Vogue and Kendall simultaneously announced that the reality star will take the coveted position of their September cover girl.

Taking to Instagram to share the cover shot with her 63 million followers, Kendall excitedly wrote: “In a room with a bunch of people I love, looking at this cover made me cry.  I F*CKING DID IT.  SEPTEMBER VOGUE.”

“This is the coolest thing ever!  Can’t thank you enough Anna, for giving me the honour.”

An interview between numerous members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan and the famous magazine reveals that Kendall has been dedicated to modelling since she was just 13 years old.

 

 

Her older sister Kim said: “She had her eyes focused on exactly what she wanted to do… and she made it happen.”

But Kendall stressed that she did not want to be famous for the sake of it like her sisters often appear to be.

She said: “Obviously, my success came after my sisters' – I got to see all of their mistakes and watch out for them.”

 

 

The star also opened up about what it was like for her to watch the man who taught her “everything tomboy” – her father Bruce – transition into Caitlyn.

She said: “It's super ironic 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!'”

But while her father’s transition was difficult for her to process at the time, she now says seeing Bruce as Caitlyn is “super normal”.

She explained: “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.” 

With such valuable experiences behind her, we're excited to see what Kendall does next.
