Kendall Jenner: I want a career like Cindy Crawford's

Kendall Jenner wants a career like Cindy Crawford's.

The 20-year-old model is already among the most recognisable women in the world, but has revealed she hopes to match the longevity of the iconic supermodel.

She said: "This is a career - 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."

Meanwhile, Kendall has also recalled the first time she met Caitlyn Jenner, her father who transitioned to become a woman last July.

Kendall admitted that she and her sister Kylie first encountered Caitlyn by accident.

She told US Vogue magazine: "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."

Kendall said she came perilously close to uncovering her father's secret during her childhood.

She explained: "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 - 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--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 - to this day! - has no idea that happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her."
