Kylie Jenner has been tapped to grace the cover of PAPER magazine’s new “Transformation” issue. Complementing the shoot photographed by the Morelli Brothers, Jenner sat down with Katherine Gillespie to talk plastic surgery, her ever-blossoming makeup empire, motherhood and more.
Jenner is seen on the cover wearing clothing and accessories by Balenciaga. Additional looks then feature styles from Marc Jacobs, Giuseppe Zanotti, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Tiffany & Co., OFF-WHITE and adidas.
“People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false,” Jenner said of her transformation from girl-next-door to bombshell. “I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do.”
In transitioning to talk of her daughter, Stormi, the 21-year-old mogul insists motherhood has changed her life for the better. “It’s genuinely what I wanted… to be a young mom,” she noted. “I thought, This I what I want to do, and if people accept it or don’t accept it then I’m okay with every outcome.”
Kylie went on to discuss her makeup empire, as just last year Forbes predicted that Jenner would become America’s youngest self-made billionaire within a year. She links some of her success to her massive social media following, while insisting the business is self made.
“I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me,” she said, before adding that “the self-made thing is true.” She then spoke on how her parents “cut her off at the age of 15.”
“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” Jenner said. “What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
