LAURA BROWN: This shoot is quite the metaphor. Coming out of a box—like when you arrived in fashion.

KENDALL JENNER: It was really exciting, actually. I remember the Marc Jacobs show, which was my first really big show and my coming out. Before I walked it I didn’t know how everyone would react to me. But no one knew I was doing it.

LB: Karl Lagerfeld has said you’re the girl of the moment. How do you make this moment last?

KJ: I started this hoping that it would have longevity. I didn’t come into this thinking it’s going to be a fun thing that I’m going to do on the side. It’s something I want to do my whole life. It’s a career, so I needed to be really gentle with it. We had to pick and choose things very specifically.

LB: Tell me about when you first met Karl.

KJ: I’m really shy when I first meet someone—and to meet him was even worse. He would say something to me and I would just nod. It was like meeting a crush or something—I was mute. He probably thought I was the biggest weirdo. And then every time we’d see each other, it would just get better and better. Now we’re totally BFFs.

LB: What have you learned from him?

KJ: I’ve actually learned to be a better model. Whenever I shoot with him, he gives me some tips, little things, pointers. He makes me feel good when I’m working with him—we have good chemistry now.

LB: How did you make friends with your Instagram pals—Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid?

KJ: Just through work. I think it’s super important. You have to be around these girls for work, for parties, for events, for shows, especially. It’s good to have a set of girlfriends that you can stand being around. You have to be around these people all the time!

LB: What’s your dream date?

KJ: I don’t know, a nice dinner. I love, like, being outside at night. I know that sounds really random, but I love being on the beach or anywhere outside at night. I think it’s beautiful and romantic.

LB: Finally, whose style do you love?

KJ: I really admire Kim’s style. It’s insane. She really knows how to work her style with her body. I think she could be a major fashion icon. It’s so fun to be in Paris with her, but I’ll walk out and be like, “Oh, my God, I love my outfit,” and then I’ll see Kim and I’ll be like, “My outfit sucks compared to yours!”
