“I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time.” Kendall Jenner doesn’t scream “low-key.” With an Instagram account that’s 98% skin and 2% clothes, this model might duck the cameras for her personal life, but let’s not kid ourselves– Kendall Jenner is on show.
In 2017, Kendall Jenner knocked Gisele Bundchen off a pretty major pedestal. With a staggering $22 million straight into Kendall’s wallet, according to Forbes, Kendall snatched the “highest-paid model” crown from Gisele. With a Kardashian-Jenner status, a boost from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and a wardrobe (or lack of) that we can barely keep up with, Kendall is 2019’s “it” girl.
Adidas. Victoria’s Secret. La Perla. Calvin Klein. The contracts this girl has landed are nothing short of insane. They’re also the best decision a company can make. Kendall Jenner’s face sells Proactiv. Her abs sell Adidas. Her itsy-bitsy underwear shots basically dug Calvin Klein from out of the grave.
If the word “sizzling” caught your eye though, there’s one thing that’s topping every shoot Kendall has ever done. It’s called her Instagram account. With over 104 million followers, Kendall’s updates might not be as frequent as Kylie Jenner’s, but they’re worth the wait.
She’s beyond gorgeous. She’s totally unique. Whatever it is about Kendall Jenner, you can’t quite put your finger on it. Here are 15 pics of this girl at her most sizzling.
Born For It
Sometimes, you’re just born with it. Kendall Jenner has a pretty interesting body for a model. The legs for days are definitely there. The angelic facial features basically came with a #MadeForTheCamera. Unlike the stereotypical stick-thin model though, Kendall comes with the family’s trademark curves. The start was tough for Kendall, though.
“I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name.”
Speaking to Love, Kendall reflected on the early days. Doors slammed in her face because she was on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Looks like she’s having the last laugh now. This pic? Oh, just Kendall stepping out on Halloween.
104 Million Followers Starts To Make Sense
Trigger happy– that’s what Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian seem to be on Instagram. With a guaranteed update almost every day (or, let’s face it, up to five times a day), Kendall’s sisters are definitely more-frequent posters. Kendall? 104 million followers speak for themselves. Kendall actually has some interesting views on social media.
“It’s an addiction. I’ll be at dinner with my good friends, and I’ll look at someone on their phone. They’re not texting someone… No, they’re on Instagram and Twitter. It really does irk me.”
In an Elle interview that saw Kendall say she straight-up didn’t get the social media obsession, fans learned that this sultry-posing model does, in fact, have unusual views. Still, with some of the raciest pics on the entire platform, there’s a reason this girl’s following is through the roof.
Not A Victoria’s Secret Angel For Nothing
Shopping at Victoria’s Secret is one thing. Walking down the runway in their super-skimpy underwear is another (and Victoria’s Secret don’t just pick anyone). In a bit of a squad deal, the Victoria’s Secret angels fly by private jet, they go to exclusive parties, and yes, they’re drop-dead gorgeous.
“Everyone probably thinks I am an angel, but I am a devil for sure! I am sure my friends will attest to that!”
Speaking to Glamour in 2018 about being part of the VS crew, Kendall showed us a side that’s more devilish blacks than satin pinks. Kendall joins angels like Adriana Lima and Behati Prinsloo. They walk the runway in beyond-glam looks, the backstage robes are just the start, and no, we don’t seem to be invited.
And You Wonder Why She Makes Girls Nervous
It’s a fact– this girl turns heads. Since Kendall spends way more time in the street than Little Miss Hidden Away (a.k.a. Kylie), she has pretty much become the most-valuable celeb a paparazzo can snap. Outings in Calabasas can see Kendall grabbing coffee or browsing bookstores, but don’t think Kendall always dresses in sweats.
The sheer number of Instagram fan accounts that exist for Kendall is testimony to how obsessed we are. “A couple of years ago, someone started using Kylie’s and my pages as a way to promote themselves, “Kendall told Elle.
“At first, I was annoyed by it, but now I feel like it’s a blessing—it’s trained me to not look at my comments, ever.” Guys are loving this girl. Girls? You might find they’re a bit less keen.
$22 Million A Year
Don’t think for a second that this girl doesn’t demand exactly what she’s worth. Kendall might not be worth anywhere near Kylie’s staggering $900 million, but Forbes‘ “Youngest Self-Made Billionaire” isn’t the family’s only high earner.
$22.5 million landed in Kendall’s bank account between June 2017 and June 2018. She is now the highest-paid model in the world.
As W Magazine reports, Kendall’s earnings are now through the roof. Adidas is paying her. La Perla is paying her. The entire KarJenner clan is now fronting Calvin Klein, but the fashion house likely has its eye on Kendall the most. Kendall has also walked the runway for Versace and Chanel (where she was Karl Lagerfeld’s “bride” for the Haute Couture collection).
It’s every modeling scout’s dream. The girl with perfect bone structure and legs for days has the piercing stare that gazes right down the camera and just works. You’ve either got it or you don’t. Much like Gigi Hadid, Kendall has that inexplicable hook– the thing that gets you hooked.
Kendall Jenner is pretty used to the cameras. That said, the workload that this girl faces comes at a price. “I made it a point at the beginning of 2017 to consciously slow down, take more time for myself, be more selective and not just do whatever my agents tell me to do.,” Kendall told Vogue.
In 2018, KUWTK showed us a stressed-out Kendall admitting that she needed to take some time for herself. Of course, we were too busy waiting for her on-screen moment (where yes, we got more of that gaze).
“There is something very warm, human, and sweet about her.” When the late Karl Lagerfeld spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about his relationship with Kendall, it was clear that legs and waistlines aren’t just what make Kendall so special. The creative director of Chanel died in February 2019.
Kendall just has that smile. It makes guys melt (and girls too). In a way that’s difficult to pinpoint, the smile isn’t fake. Kendall’s candids and Instagram shots show one of the most genuine smiles around, and it’s likely why so many of her campaigns seem to encourage the grin.
“She is on the way to becoming [an icon],” Karl added. Amazing how far a smile can go. For all the sultry looks we get from Kendall, her smiles are actually some of the most-circulated pics on the internet.
When Nobody Was Looking At The Boots
Models get the best of both worlds. They get to wear the designer clothes on the runway (and if they’re rich enough, they get to own a nice selection from it). Kendall Jenner’s style pretty much tops internet searches these days. She can be dressed down in Yeezy or wearing $10,000 Saint Laurent boots to a basketball game. Either way, Kendall’s style files are documented.
“When I was younger, I had zero sense of style. I couldn’t do my make-up – I was just a mess, but I just didn’t care about anything except for horses.”
Speaking to Vogue, the “style queen” admitted that the early days didn’t come with much in the way of glam. Of course, with pics like these (where the boots likely cost a pretty penny), no-one was eyeing up the footwear.
When “Risk Analysis” Suddenly Became An Appealing Career
A high leg slit– not something any celeb can pull off. When Kendall arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, she stepped out with her best foot forward. Quite how wrong this could have gone with a wardrobe malfunction is anyone’s guess, but we’re looking at a pro.
“All the Naked Dresses Came Out at the Oscars 2019 After Parties,” Harper’s Bazaar reported after this year’s celebs went all-out with their outfits. Risqué isn’t something that Kendall seems to avoid, though. Wearing next-to-nothing on Instagram is the norm for this model, and it isn’t rocket science why.
Kendall has admitted insecurities, though. Being the face of Proactiv is entirely a result of Kendall’s battle with acne, so don’t think she hasn’t been there with wanting to hide.
“I’m Not Like My Other Sisters”
Kendall and Kylie might have a clothing line together, but Kendall has a little something different when it comes to being a Kardashian. She’s way edgier, way more hipster, and let’s face it, she’s the odd one out. Kendall drives a vintage Corvette. She parks it an In-N-Out, then takes a selfie.
“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.”
Speaking to Vogue in 2016, Kendall added: “Part of me loves that, but at the same time, I love dressing down and having my private life.” Talk about private. While Kylie and Travis Scott parade their romance all over social media, Kendall keeps her boyfriend on the DL.
“I Would Always Go That Extra Mile To Be Low-Key With Guys”
“Low-key.” Not really something that sums this girl up. While Kendall’s “spilling out of dresses” is a little toned-down compared to Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner, this model doesn’t exactly hold back. Half the time, that Instagram account isn’t even giving us a dress to spill out of.
“I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like, ‘Here’s me and my boyfriend!’ So it was a thing for a minute because no one ever saw me with a guy. I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time.”
In her W Magazine interview, Kendall did use the word we just don’t associate with her. “Low-key” might apply to showing her face with Ben Simmons (whom Kendall is dating), but for the most part, this girl is in-your-face.
#Mood is what we wait for with celebs. It can be Chrissy Teigen after a long day. Or Chris Pratt’s son not feeling too upbeat. Kendall’s #Mood face is straight-up awesome. Of course, it helps to be incredibly beautiful. As it turns out though, moods in the KarJenner household can be very up and down.
Kylie: “Why would you want to wear something from my closet when—” Kendall: “Because I can’t!” The fights between these sisters are something else.
When Seventeen covered the epic fights between Kendall and Kylie, we learned that it was over clothes. Seriously? The girls who can afford a glam squad each (and all the Versace on the planet) are having catfights over clothes? Looks like Kendall grew up with a #Mood, all right.
Jets, jets, jets. Boats, boats, boats. How the Kardashians roll has become the ultimate #Goals. “Even on tour, Stormi pulls up,” Travis Scott told Rolling Stone before clearly outlining that she has “more stamps on her passport than most [people].” Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie have never done anything by half.
JLO hangs out on yachts with A-Rod. Leonardo DiCaprio watches the soccer World Cup from a mega-yacht. When Kendall joined Khloe here on vacation, nobody was surprised. What everyone did seem to like though, were the pics.
The vacations these ladies take are insane. In 2017, IB Times reported that Kim had dropped $400,000 on a Bahamas vacation for Kanye West. Khloe has already taken True to Bali. This pic definitely didn’t go unnoticed (although we’ll admit, people may have been paying more attention to Kendall).
Something About This Girl And Fried Chicken
“Models don’t eat.” Biggest myth ever. Kendall Jenner has the appetite of a horse. Seriously, the meals this girl eats are unreal. Rabbit food, Kendall is not. One food that Kendall won’t eat? Oreos. We learned that on Season 15 of KUWTK. Anything else seems fine with this girl, though.
Kendall is so in love with Italian food, she actually took to her website to list her favorite pasta spots. The first food she eats when she gets home? KUWTK told us it’s her mom’s pasta with peas. In 2015, this pic of Kendall with Scott Disick surfaced. Yeah, that’s a lot of chicken wings.
Italian will always be Kendall’s love, though. “There’s nothing better than digging into a bowl of fresh, delicious spaghetti bolognese!” she told Teen Vogue.
“Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored?”
“Break up with your girlfriend, I’m bored.” Thanks, Ariana Grande for what is quite possibly the best phrase ever. Well, that’s unless “Thank U, Next” is still on your mind. While not every girlfriend in the world is singing this from the rooftops, you’ve got to admit, it’s catchy.
Kendall Jenner doesn’t seem to hang much with the pop stars. Back in the day, she seemed to hang tight with Taylor Swift, but “What happened to Taylor Swift’s squad?” was actually a question from In Style in 2018. Kendall appears to have been kicked out.
Like Kendall needs a squad. With Kylie Jenner as her sister (and this as her Instagram update), it’s fair to say that Kendall’s squad is basically the long line of guys waiting for a chance to BBQ it up in Kendall’s back yard. If you’re one of them, good luck.
You know who they are. That Facebook friend who will thank you forever for seeing this. Hit share (and they’ll owe you one).
