Kendall Jenner is no stranger to the Vogue world.

Besides gracing covers of the magazine's Paris, Japan and Brazil editions, the model also managed to get a special edition American issue dedicated to her.

Remember this?


Yup, "The Kendall Effect" is very real.

Now, the 20-year-old It girl has unlocked another major Vogue achievement: landing the cover of the coveted September issue.

"In a room with a bunch of people I love, looking at this cover made me cry. I FUCKING DID IT. SEPTEMBER VOGUE," Kendall wrote on Instagram. "This is the coolest thing ever! can't thank you enough Anna, for giving me the honor."

The cover — shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott — touts the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, who is shown wearing a regal Gucci pantsuit featuring golden details with pink ribbons, as “The Face That Launched A Billion Likes.”

The glossy's accompanying interview focuses on Kendall's developing years in a "modern digital-reality-celebrity-besotted culture."


In a spread that sees Kendall sporting everything from lace to sequin to sheet, an emphasis is placed on how she is different from her "Kardashian sisters" and the media circus surrounding them.

"I’ve always been superdifferent 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," the model confessed. "It’s almost, like, empowering to know that no one knows we’re sitting here right now—because it’s not usually like this. Every day, I have to find a way to escape."

However, Kendall does credit her "fucking strong" sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney for teaching her not only about success, but to also "not to take everything so seriously."

“Obviously, my success came after my sisters’—I got to see all of their mistakes and watch out for them,” Kendall said.

And although Jenner was first nervous to enter the fashion industry, coming directly in from reality television, she doesn't feel that way anymore.

"I was trying so hard to be taken seriously, like, ‘Guys: This is not a joke or a stunt; this is what I want to do with my life.’ I had to prove that I could do it," the face of Estée Lauder said. "And now I feel like I’m a part of something. I feel I have accomplished something that is mine."

Way to take charge, Kendall.
