Kendall Jenner’s celebrity status may have opened doors for her in fashion, but her fashion cred is all her own. She shows off her stunning, sexual look in the June issue of Elle magazine and talks about life in the real world and her reality television world.

In her first-ever Elle cover story, the 22-year-old model could even command her own interviewer. No hardballs please!

She chose singer Lana Del Rey, the pop star, who shares Kendall’s love of fashion and all things Kardashian.

In case you missed it, Jenner’s struggles with anxiety were a central topic on the last season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” And, no wonder.

Her meteoric rise in fashion was fraught with lots of sniping. Critics said she was cashing-in on her notoriety without paying her dues like other models. But she’s proved her critics wrong on the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan.

To cope with her inner demons, Jenner has started practicing Transcendental Meditation and winds down at night with light Netflix fare, according to the magazine. “When I’m about to fall asleep, I’ll put on ‘Trailer Park Boys,’” she says. “I love it; it’s so stupid.”

Of course, there’s never a dull moment with the Kardashian clan. Even Kendall sometimes has to pause to process the news, such as unmarried little sister Kylie having a baby, daughter Stormi, at age 20.

“It’s obviously a bit weird that your little sister is having a baby before you. I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful,” she says.

For the magazine’s photo spread, Kendall wears Versace, Tom Ford and Gucci, styled by Anna Trevelyan.
