Kendall Jenner Poses without Makeup


The 17-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kendall Jenner, sat down to discuss her modelling aspirations in an interview with V Magazine. She dishes on her famous family and giving up reality TV to pursue modeling.

PS: When you come to New York, do you get recognized a lot?
KJ Yeah, I’ve been trying to keep it low key when I have been here, I haven’t been recognized much. Taking a lot of taxi cabs, wearing sunglasses… but yeah, when I’m here with my family, everybody knows which hotel we’re staying at. It’s a little bit crazier.

Well we know your mom is so low profile, so.
KJ Oh, exactly.

Do you have any concerns coming into modeling, having done TV? Do you think that you have some barriers to break down in terms of being taken seriously as a model?
KJ One hundred percent. I don’t think some people take me very seriously. When I started off, I was way more of a personality in modeling and it wasn’t like, what I wanted to be exactly. I want to be more high fashion; I want to be more editorial, but hopefully I’ll just prove myself.

Who are some of your favorite designers that you would like to model for?
KJ I mean of course the big ones: Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. All those big ones are my ultimate dream.

Which photographers are your favorites, and who would you most like to work with?
KJ I’ve actually this week gotten to shoot with some pretty incredible photographers. Working with Russell James was like a dream. I went to shoot with Greg Kadel yesterday and it was really incredible.

Are you more interested in runway or editorial?
KJ Editorial more, but I do runway. I didn’t think I’d want to do it but I’ve grown a love for it; it’s so fun for me.

If you had an agent or someone that hired you and they told you that to take modeling seriously, they’d want you to stop doing the TV show with your family, would you stop doing the show?
KJ I’ve never gotten that question before… Um, yeah. Probably.

Good answer. Not that you should, but it shows that you’re dedicated. Are you thinking of moving to New York?
KJ I mean, I love L.A., and I don’t mind flying out here whenever I have to. And I’m such a family person, and my whole family is over there, and all of my friends, I mean, I’d make new friends, but I don’t know.

Do you like New York?
KJ For a certain amount of time. It gets claustrophobic. I like having space.

Seventeen welcomes Kendall and Kylie Jenner as West Coast Fashion Contributors‏

“People always ask us for fashion and beauty tips, and now we can share them directly with readers. It’s really exciting for us!” the girls said. Kendall and Kylie will also appear in a series of twice-a-month Web videos on, revealing their latest fashion finds, style inspirations, and tips for girls who want to achieve the looks themselves.

Selected as Seventeen Style Stars in 2011, the burgeoning fashionistas were a natural fit as columnists. “Kendall and Kylie have such a cool West Coast sense of style—they are evolving into true style icons,” said Seventeen Editor-in-Chief Ann Shoket. “Our readers already love them, and they’ll get to know Kendall and Kylie in a great new way as our newest fashion contributors.”

Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch, Kris Jenner, is tremendously supportive of the girls’ new venture. “I am so proud and excited that Kendall and Kylie have partnered with Seventeen magazine,” said Kris. “I remember when I was growing up what an iconic and special magazine Seventeen was and what an influence it had on my style and fashion sense. . . . I can’t believe all these years later Kendall and Kylie have the opportunity to be West Coast contributors—so amazing!”

Kendall and Kylie’s transition into fashion columnists will be captured throughout season seven of their hit E! reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which premieres on Sunday, May 20 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Kendall Jenner considering skipping college to become a model.

Kendall Jenner is looking to make it big in the modelling world. One thing she’s willing to put on hold for the time being is college.

“I’m not really thinking about college right now,”Jenner, 16, told PEOPLE Monday while trying on dresses at Rent the Runway‘s Pop-up Shop at West Hollywood’s Andaz Hotel.“If my career, like, blows up and gets really big, [modeling] is what I would do.”

Though we’ve seen Kim Kardashian‘s younger sis struggle with her nerves while walking the runway onKeeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner says those initial jitters are all in the past.

“I want to [walk the runway] again and again,”she said.“It was so much fun, like the adrenaline and everything was really fun.”

The budding fashionista, who calls her own style “edgy [and] girly, but colorful,” shared some of her own style tips and influences.

“I like to add color… and I think that heels make the outfit look 10 times better,” said Jenner, who often “raids” sister Kourtney‘s closet.“I love Hervé Léger dresses just because I love bandage dresses … [and] I love jumpers.”

As for showing skin both on and off the runway, the teen believes less is more.

“I think if you look cute but like, classy, even though you are showing skin, I think that’s fine,”she said.“I wouldn’t like, go crazy. I am not that kind of a person.”

What would you think of your daughter wanted to put a hold on college to further her modelling career? What would you say?

She recently opened up to TeenProm about coming out of her shell. “I used to be really shy around the cameras,” she admits) to her beauty secrets (at 16, she’s already wearing eye cream nightly, thanks to advice from her sisters).

But what the reality star really loves to talk about is fashion. Mentioning that she draws style inspiration from sibs Kourtney, Kim and Khloé, Jenner admits she used to dislike high heels black high heel shoes. “I was so tall, and would tower over everybody, but now I actually love them,” she shares. “Height doesn’t really matter to me anymore. I feel wearing heels makes everything look better.”

Reflecting on outfits past — “Kyile and I used to wear the craziest stuff on our show when we were younger,” she confesses — the teen fashion queen doesn’t seem to have a favorite designer or style of dress. “Honestly, I wear whatever stands out to me,” she says, adding, “I love color. [It] stands out a lot more.” (She also loves jewelry; WWD reported Tuesday that Jenner and sis Kylie will launch their own line of gems in 2012.)
