Kendall Jenner Lands Two Teen Vogue Covers, Addresses That Whole 'Bleached Eyebrows' Thing

08/05/2014 at 10:31 AM ET

Add “major magazine cover” to Kendall Jenner’s growing list of modeling accomplishments. The 18-year-old reality star-turned-high fashion model landed the September issue of Teen Vogue, posing for not one but two covers (and a full spread inside). And she addresses one of our most pressing questions about her career, which is: Why do stylists keep bleaching her eyebrows?

As it turns out, Jenner’s been wondering the same thing. “I actually had them bleached today,” she says during her interview (we’re guessing you can see the results above). “This is the sixth time since February! I might have to start saying no at some point, because I’m getting worried they’re going to fall out!”

Potential eyebrow loss aside, Jenner is happy to ride the wave of her modeling success — as she has mentioned before, she got a slow start when designers weren’t willing to consider a reality star. “People didn’t want to take a chance on me, I think because I was sort of known,” she says. “They were a little bit on the fence about it. Some people might think that what I’ve done before made it easier for me to get jobs, but it was actually a disadvantage. I had to work even harder.”

But in spite of her drive to make it as a model, Jenner says, she was committed to being a kid before becoming career-focused at 17. “I wanted to get started, but I was young, and I wanted to do young things,” she says, adding that she rode horses and did cheerleading until she was ready to hit the runway. “I had to grow into myself. I couldn’t really go out there as a 15-year-old. I mean, I know that some girls do, but I couldn’t. I’d grown up in the spotlight, and I needed to be a kid for a minute.”

Now she’s walking for Chanel, posing for Givenchy and, she says, taking her nascent career very seriously. “I felt like I should pick specific designers that I wanted to go for so I could make a good first impression — or more like a fifth impression,” she says. “But it’s my first impression on this world.”

If I had bleached eyebrows and wore that outfit on the street people would likely look at me as if I had lost my mind, but put me on the cover of a “high fashion” magazine, and I’m suddenly high fashion. I don’t get it.

If I were her, I wouldn’t let them bleach it again. I’m sure there’s a good makeup artist can make her brows appear bleached.

Say what you want about this family, but they’ve set the standard for being able to parlay the potential negative infamy of Kim’s “sex tape,” into epic fame and fortune…they should teach a class. Kendall is a LEGITIMATE top model; even more remarkable is that she and her sister Kim have been on the covers of the country’s top fashion magazines. Proving that they’re at the forefront of the industry. For the record, Kim’s “tape” isn’t what made her famous, hence the word infamous. Her true fans can recall that when the tape was leaked BY HER EX, the interest wasn’t in her D-list boyfriend at the time (he was barely even mentioned by name) but rather the cute brunette identified as Paris Hilton’s BFF. Yes, Kim was famous before the scandal which is why there was interest in it to begin with, so enough already people. Kim Kardashian was already visible on the social scene, and to those who continue to question was she does…the answer: FASHION. She was a stylist and owned clothing stores with her sisters. Having grown up with the likes of Paris and Nicole Richie it was only natural that once Paris ushered in the new area of rich kids as celebrities …Kim would consequentially share the spotlight. This is HOLLYWOOD people…not Idaho. Get over yourselves.

Standing ovation to the commenter RLG for breaking down the whole Kardashian thing. As for everybody else…haters gotta hare.

Kendall is the prettiest of the all the sisters but can’t figure out why she is a top model as doesn’t impress me at all…maybe its the outfits but something is missing. In a few short years or even months the Kardashians will be retired finally out of the spotlight forever…..yay!!!!

Bleached eyebrows with dark hair especially should go the way of the scrunchie.

In the first picture she looks like Marilyn Manson.
