They are often ridiculed for doing nothing other than swanning around on their reality TV show.
But it seems Kendall Jenner, 16, is determined to break-free and carve out a real career for herself.
The brunette beauty has posed in a striking photoshoot for Genlux magazine, emerging from her half-sister's shadows while trying to make her mark as a serious fashionista.
Could she be more famous than half-sister Kim Kendall Jenner poses in striking photoshoot for Genlux
Growing up fast: At 5ft 11in, Kendall is the only one of the Kardashian/Jenner clan to be truly blessed with supermodel statistics
Kendall, who signed to the Wilhelmina
agency two years ago at the tender age of 14, is the eldest daughter of
Kris Jenner and former decathlon Olympian Bruce.
While sister Kylie, 15, also tries to
put her stamp on the fashion world – walking for Avril Lavigne last
night at New York Fashion Week – it is Kendall who has been blessed with
the model 5ft 11in frame.
In the sophisticated spread for the
luxury beauty and fashion magazine, Kendall is introduced as a cut above
the rest with the slogan: 'My name is Kendall. Kendall Jenner. I am NOT a Kardashian.'
So hot, they printed her twice: While posing in a metallic dress, Kendall's image has a duplicate mirror image
Elegant: The magazine has painted Kendall in a sophisticated manner, with this skirt retailing for $2k
According to the publication's creative
director Stephen Kamifuji, the line was intended to create a separation
between 'Kendall the model' and 'Kendall the reality show celebrity'.
He said: 'The concept behind the headline is simple. Kendall is a lovely model with a great future.
'We were excited to feature her on
our cover and in this eight-page fashion feature based solely on her
beauty and stature – but also wanted to keep some distance from the
reality television show.'
Career already carved out: Kendall may only be 16, but she doesn't seem to go to school anymore
He added: 'We feel the truthful statement achieves this.'
She posed in a variety of outfits, all exceeding high street prices and edging towards haute couture.
Cover girl: Kendall features on Genlux
In one image, she is seen
navel-gazing in a Wes Gordon gold velvet top that retails for $1650,
along with a slip skirt that is in the $500 region despite consisting of
very little material.
In another snapshot, she wears a
Bowie black lace overlay gown with a satin sash that not every teenager
will be able to hang in their wardrobe at a hefty $3000.
Dressed in a $500 Leila Shams bronze
and gold metallic number, the magazine have seen fit to duplicate
Kendall with a mirror image as she fits the ideal cookie cutter
clotheshorse mould so perfectly they couldn't resist using it twice.
Meanwhile, Kendall has been storming the catwalk in the Big Apple over the weekend.
She strut her stuff in an array of princess prom dresses, alongside Kylie, for Sherri Hill.
And the rising star revealed on Twitter she has another show lined up: 'Can't wait to walk in the @JustDanceGame fashion show by @tumblerandtipsy at #NYFW!'
Kendall features on the Fall Fashion issue of Genlux.
