UPDATE: Kendall Jenner's LOVE Magazine cover has just landed and it sees the burgeoning model posing topless with well placed elbows and hair covering her modesty. Yep, KJ is wearing nothing but a giant fur Fendi hat.
Kendall said to E! about the shoot: "I was really happy with it. It was a fun shoot to do and it’s nice when you absolutely just love something. To be honest, this is exactly what I wanted to be. I was always looking up to supermodels; they were, like, my superheroes." And she's certainly in good company now, having bagged one of three covers for the issue alongside Amy Adams and Adriana Lima.
14 July 2014: Kendall is 'one of the breakthrough faces of the season'
Kendall Jenner's shoot for LOVE magazine has just been revealed on models.com and blimey, it's super sexy. Shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Katie Grand, Kim's little sister shows off her killer body in a black and white shoot aptly titled 'Stripped'. Those toned arms would give MObama a run for her money, eh?
'Kendall is not only one of our cover stars, but one of the breakthrough faces of the season, who I loved so much that I asked her to model in three of our stories this issue,' said Grand, LOVE's Editor-in Chief. Meanwhile Kendall says, 'I’d never worked with Mario Sorrenti, with whom I’d wanted to shoot nudes ever since that Kate Moss Calvin image of her nude on a sofa.'
How can you go wrong? The portrait certainly has that sultry CK vibe about it, with Kendall having a just-out-the-gym sweat on, but there's no trackie bottoms here - instead, the model's wearing a set of minxy lingerie. It's quite a contrast to the colourful cover shot [below]. See the full shebang when LOVE hits the shops on Monday 28 July.
