Kendall Jenner might not have made it onto the cover of US Vogue's September Issue as one of the supermodel 'Insta-girls' - despite having almost 13 million Instagram followers - but she has found her way inside the 856 pages.

You'd be forgiven for flicking past Kendall's Vogue debut. There's no interview about North West or an at home shoot with Kris Jenner - she is just doing the model thing, starring in a trend piece about how to tie a scarf. The word 'Kardashian' is nowhere to be seen.

If you turn to page 656, you'll notice Kendall wearing a blue paisley Alexander Wang jacket, paisley burgundy shirt and purple metallic bum bag, with an Alexander Wang printed scarf. The image was styled by Tabitha Simmons and photographed by the legendary Patrick Demarchelier. Fashionista points out that the rest of the editorial features Sarah Greene in Hermes and Anna Ewers in Marc by Marc Jacobs.


Back in February Kendall had her first experience of working with Vogue, as she posted a number of selfies wearing Autumn Winter 2014 looks fresh off the runway on the magazine's Instagram account. Kendall said to Grazia about the shoot: 'Umm, they called me, asked me to do it so I did it! That was also something I've long dreamed of doing.'
