Jenner covered the special subscriber edition of Harper’s Bazaar May issue, wearing head-to-toe Chanel haute couture. The shoot — which was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, who she calls her “BFF,” in New York and styled by Amanda Harlech.
In the exclusive interview, Jenner opens up about the trajectory of her career, her relationship with Lagerfeld and her Insta-girl pals, including Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid, and why she believes sister Kim Kardashian has the potential to be a “major fashion icon.”
On meeting Karl Lagerfeld: “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.
On admiring Kim Kardashian’s style: 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!”
