Kendall Jenner Poses With a Cockatoo on the Cover of ‘Vogue’
We’ve seen a lot of crazy Vogue shoots in our day, from Katy Perry’s insane Comme des Garçons spread to Gigi and Bella Hadid’s naked shoot for the mag’s British publication, but Kendall Jenner’s latest cover for Vogue just might top them all!
The model, who has appeared on no less than 13 covers for the mag’s various countries (including the coveted 2016 September issue), just debuted the outlet’s April issue over on her Instagram page, and it includes one very special guest.
“Thrilled to cover @voguemagazine’s April dreamers’ issue!” Jenner wrote. “Vogue continues to make my dreams come true.”
The photo, shot by Mert Atals and Mac Piggott, showcases the elder Jenner sister in a pink Chanel tulle gown with a silver octopus cocktail ring and… a yellow-crested cockatoo. Jenner’s co-model is a tropical bird found in East Timor and in the Indonesian islands of Sulawesi and Lesser Sundas.
The shots found within the mag’s pages were no less eye-popping, with the reality star donning looks from Rodarte, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Maison Margiela, a sparkly sequined Chanel jumpsuit, plus a Rebel Rebel baby’s breath headdress (á la bestie Gigi Hadid on Moschino’s spring 2018 runway) with an out-of-this-world pink furry netted dress.
It’s more than we’ve seen from the fashion darling for a while, who was largely absent from Fashion Month, only walking for a week. As she explained to Vogue, she’s pulling back to spend time doing thing she loves — like riding horses, for instance.
“I made it a point at the beginning of 2017 to consciously slow down, take more time for myself, be more selective, and not just do whatever my agents tell me to do,” she said. “I [rode horses] my whole life — it was my life. I didn’t care for anything else. I didn’t care about boys. This is what makes me really happy.”
The KUWTK star also addressed rumors that she is gay or bisexual (“I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my whole body, but I don’t know! Who knows!? I’m all down for experience — not against it — but I’ve never been there before”), having babies (“I want to have kids, but at like, 28, 29”), and accusations of sexual harassment and assault in her industry (“Luckily, I haven’t been put into a situation like that ever in my life. I’ve heard about it for so long, I get it. I try and understand it”).
