It’s happened! What a coup!
After months of speculation, Kendall Jenner has landed the September Vogue cover and she’s over the moon! Not that we weren’t sure she would get it, because her psychic sister Kylie Jenner wished upon a star for her birthday, after all!
Posting the photo on her IG, Kenny wrote:
“in a room with a bunch of people I love, looking at this cover made me cry. I FUCKING DID IT. SEPTEMBER VOGUE. this is the coolest thing ever! can’t thank you enough Anna, for giving me the honor.”
“OMG Kendall, you’re on the SEPTEMBER COVER of VOGUE!!! This is so huge!!! This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, but more importantly what an amazing, iconic moment in your career. I couldn’t be prouder of you, your work ethic, your professionalism, your stunning beauty, and most importantly your huge heart, you’re such an amazing girl and it’s your time to shine.”
And even Kim Kardashian West got in on the social love:

Awww! How can you not be excited for her?!
The model also gives an in-depth interview for the mag — confessing Kris knew about Caitlyn Jenner‘s transition from the third date, wanting to constantly escape from everything, and how she doesn’t relate to any of her Kardashian sisters!
Read on for our fave HIGHlights:
On being a tomboy and Caitlyn’s transition: “We had ATVs and go-carts, and I grew up riding them all the time, which is why I’m a good driver. It’s superironic 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├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥her transition├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥was really hard for me, because I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£But you taught me everything tomboy!’ I knew it was going to have its rough phase. But it’s all supernormal now. 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├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥I get emotional. You have to get past it├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥you’ve got a new person to love. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥if that’s not the wrong way to say it.” On seeing her dad in women’s clothing before the transition: “We’re very accepting of people and of being different and being who you are. We’re not judgmental. But obviously it’s strange having your dad, who was so male, completely reverse. It is definitely a gnarly experience. But my whole life we would, like, catch her, and we would be like, What is going on here? I think we know, but do we? At one point Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found those squishy boob things. We found wigs. And then one time I actually ran into her. In this house. She had no idea. She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥take us to school, totally normal. So one morning I woke up at 4:00 a.m. so thirsty, came downstairs into the kitchen, and grabbed a bottle of water. And as I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥the full nine. And she didn’t see me. I literally froze. Please don’t turn left. Because she could either turn left or turn right. Thank God she turned right and├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥to this day!├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥has no idea that happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her. My mom knew. She knew since their third date.”
On not relating to her Kardashian sisters: “I’ve always been super different from all my sisters, especially my Kardashian sisters. They’ve always been into the glam thing and dressing up every day and being in the thick of it. Part of me loves that, but at the same time, I love dressing down and having my private life. It’s almost, like, empowering to know that no one knows we’re sitting here right now├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥because it’s not usually like this. Every day, I have to find a way to escape; I have to go borrow someone else’s car. Sometimes it takes me an hour to figure out how to get rid of these guys who have been following me all day. And the second that I feel it getting the better of me, I have to go chill myself out├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥go take a bath or something to, like, disconnect from it. It keeps you real and sane and humble.”
On how she was raised: “If I’m being honest, my little sister and I have every right to go crazy. You would expect that from us. But neither of us has the desire to do that. I think it says a lot about the way we were raised. Not even just by my parents, but my Kardashian sisters and what they’ve taught us. My parents did something right, and thank God.”
On dealing with negativity: “People say a lot of what they think, and it’s not always positive. And we never say anything. We just take it. And then when people meet us, they’re pleasantly surprised. Because we aren’t what people think. One of the best lessons I ever learned from my sisters is not to take everything so seriously. Just leave it alone├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥it will pass in a week. That’s how I grew up. My sisters are so fucking strong, and they taught me and my little sister to just toughen up and not let it affect us. You know what’s real.”
On self-doubt: “Two years ago, when I first started this, I thought: This is going to be so embarrassing. No one is going to accept me, and it’s going to be a complete failure.”
On her worst habit growing up: “The only thing I can think of is that I would sneak out at night and go sleep at my boyfriend’s house.”
On Cindy Crawford: “This is a career├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥I want this to last for a long time.Not that I won’t venture out and do other things, but I want this to be like a Cindy Crawford thing: I want it to last until I am her age. That’s why I love her so much and why I look up to her: Her life now is something that I want my life to be like.”
Cindy Crawford on Kendall’s rise: “She’s not giving her power away. She’s already light-years ahead of where I was at her age. It took me a while to own that.”
We see a very bright future for Kenny. Just think, it only took her two years to reach this peak!
Shine on, baby!
