Would Kendall Jenner ever trade in the E! cameras to be in front of a photographer's lens as a full-time model? Never say never, the teen says. While posing for a V magazine online spread, Kim Kardashian's half-sister admitted that she'd quit TV for modeling if the situation was ever brought to her.
"I’ve never gotten that question before," Jenner, 17, said of deciding between the two. "Yeah. Probably."
Looking sexy and au natural in the shoot, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star ditched makeup, showing off her fresh face while wearing gold boots, black spandex, and a gray tanktop. Although modeling is truly her passion, the teen reveals that not everyone has been receptive to her.
Saying that she was "100 percent" concerned about going from a reality show to modeling, Kendall explained, "I don’t think some people take me very seriously. When I started off, I was way more of a personality in modeling and it wasn’t like, what I wanted to be exactly."
After a slew of gigs (the teen has recently posed for brother Rob Kardashian's Arthur George sock line, and she walked the runway at the Sherri Hill show at 2012's Fashion Week), Jenner has high hopes to model for her "ultimate dream" fashion lines — Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana.
"I want to be more high fashion; I want to be more editorial, but hopefully I’ll just prove myself," she said.
For now, Jenner, a former cheerleader, is enjoying life and her low-key status. While staying in New York City during the shoot, the 5 foot 10 beauty explained that she's not extroverted as her older sisters.
"I’ve been trying to keep it low key when I have been here, I haven’t been recognized much," she said. "Taking a lot of taxi cabs, wearing sunglasses. When I’m here with my family, everybody knows which hotel we’re staying at. It’s a little bit crazier."
