Looks like Rihanna isn’t Vogue Magazine‘s only April cover star. As it turns out, the rumors that Kendall Jenner was shooting her first American Vogue cover were true—well, sort of. Rather than landing the coveted spot on the front of the main issue, Vogue has given Kendall her very own special issue.
According to WWD, the 52-page issue will come with Vogue‘s April issue to New York and Los Angeles subscribers exclusively. The cover features a Proenza Schouler-clad Jenner rocking minimal makeup, a bold brow, and a sleek-but-casual wet hair look, shot by Mario Testino:
The report continues,
“[The special issue] contains a mix of new and repurposed content, which focuses on [Jenner’s] social media reach.”
If you were expecting one huge, ground-breaking Kendall Jenner story, though, you might be disappointed. Apparently, the only things that are really new are the front-of-book portfolio and one multipage feature focusing on Jenner’s “brand;” the rest of the photos are older ones that Jenner already shot for Vogue.
The feature, though, definitely sounds like something worth reading. Writer Robert Sullivan followed Jenner around New York Fashion Week, interviewing such fashion influencers as Karl Lagerfeld, Estee Lauder group president Jane Hertzmark Hudis (for whom Jenner is a spokesmodel), Tory Burch, and Michael Kors, all of whom have worked with Jenner in some capacity. The feature reportedly explores the staying power of Jenner’s brand and her social media tips. Considering her 52 million Instagram followers and 16.3 million Twitter followers, she’s bound to have some tricks up her sleeve.
While her own full-on Vogue cover still might not be out of the question, college apparently is. When asked if she had any plans to pursue higher education, Jenner responded,
“You talk to people and they say the reason they went to college was to get a job, but I already have a job, so…”
And there you have it folks. I love the girl, but when you live in a world where you think that every person that goes to college automatically gets a job, you should probably just keep on keeping on.
Kendall Jenner’s special Vogue issue will be out later this month with Vogue‘s April issue.
