Kendall Jenner: 'I’m not big on selfies'
Kendall Jenner isn’t interested in taking and sharing selfies.
The model and reality TV star, who is the younger half-sister of Kim Kardashian, claims she doesn’t subscribe to the same social media habits as her famous family members.
“It just doesn’t necessarily pertain to me exactly but (being asked) how to take a perfect selfie — if you look at my Instagram, you can tell I’m not really big on selfies,” Kendall told Vogue Australia, in an interview accompanying her photo shoot with Patrick Demarchelier for the October (16) edition of the fashion publication.
It’s a far cry from Kim’s stance, who last year (15) released a book titled Selfish which simply contained self portraits.
In fact, the 20-year-old has long been navigating a different path from her siblings. In spite of getting her start on their TV reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she’s quickly made a name for herself as an elite fashion model, gracing the runways of New York and Paris for the likes of Chanel and Givenchy.
And it’s all a dream come true for the brunette beauty, who stuns in a quirky black and grey wig and colourful Gucci ensemble on the Vogue Australia cover, as she used to idolise supermodels growing up.
“When I was a little girl, I was always tall and lanky, and supermodels were my superheroes,” she shared. “I would look through my mother’s fashion magazines and dream of making that my reality. Flash forward 17 years, and here we are.”
And if the work in front of the camera ever dries up, she’s got a solid back-up plan. The model shared that she’s always had an interest in photography, but is only now starting to become “more vocal” about her passion.
“I’ve always enjoyed sharing a small glimpse into my life via photos. I more often than not will always have my camera with me and I’m just snapping pictures along the way capturing this journey. One day I’ll be able to look back at this crazy, crazy ride and have all of these images to take me back,” Kendall smiled.
