It’s hard to imagine that supermodel Kendall Jenner isn’t girly, but it’s true! “I’m more of a Jenner than a Kardashian,” Jenner told Harper’s Bazaar in her interview for her May cover.

In her interview, the 21-year-old explains that, unlike her superstar sisters, she shies away from some of their trademark glitz for a more laid-back look and feel.

Even though Jenner regularly graces the runways of the most talented designers in the world (Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana), has nabbed endorsements with brands like Estée Lauder and OPI, and helms a clothing line with younger sister Kylie Jenner — eponymously named Kendall & Kylie — she prefers a more understated personal style. And there was even a time when her tastes skewed tomboy-ish. “I had a phase where I wore boys’ clothes,” Jenner says. “I was always hanging out with guys. I’ve always connected with guys more.”

“I’ve always been the different one,” the reality starlet insists. “I mean, I’m a girl and I like being a girl, but I’ve just never been into it like they have. I think I get it from my dad.”

And her father also agrees. “We have a special bond,” her father was quoted in the article as saying, “because she’s a lot like me in so many ways. Hardworking. Athletic. She loves the car stuff. And I couldn’t be more proud of her.”

Jenner’s also in no hurry to #breaktheinternet, even though according to the New York Post, she earns a staggering $5,000 PER tweet (!!). The supermodel tries to maintain as much privacy as possible. “More than the rest of my family, I guess,” she says. “Just ’cause I think it’s powerful. Plus, I think people always want what they can’t have. It’s nice to have some mystery.” Jenner’s tendency to stay under the radar on social media may be why we didn’t hear much from her after her recent Pepsi controversy.

Kudos to her for staying true to herself throughout her superstardom!
