HAPPY DECEMBER! This morning we awoke to brand spanking new images of Kylie Jenner, courtesy of photographer Steven Klein and Interview magazine, (opens in new tab) and they are something. The photos are very editorial and quite risqué—nothing we're not used to when it comes to the Kardashians—and feel a bit familiar, particularly this shot of the 18-year-old in full, ass-less latex, holding a champagne flute:
With the sideways profile, champagne, and, well, exposed buttocks, the image feels like a nod to big sister Kim's notorious "break the Internet" Paper magazine spread (opens in new tab):
The shoot, which includes 12 images of Kylie (opens in new tab) in various latex body suits and body casts, also features this photo of the youngest Kardashian-Jenner bending over a trunk in the aforementioned butt-less latex number, wearing an auburn wig:
We also see her showing off some impressive ab work:
And modeling a gold, very detailed (bellybutton!) gold body cast, riding a male model:
The shoot is envelope-pushing to be sure, but the accompanying interview is just as intimate. Kylie tells Interview (opens in new tab) that the image she presents to the world—the Kylie Jenner we see on Instagram and Snapchat—is more fiction than fact. "There is absolutely a side of me that people don't know. I'm not myself on Snapchat or Instagram. That's totally not me," she explains. "I'm way flashier on Instagram and Snapchat, because I feel like that's what people want to see and that's what I've always done, so I'm not going to stop. People want to see my cars and my purses. People love fashion. But that's so not me."
The real Kylie Jenner? She's actually nothing like the Kylie we know and love and try to emulate. For starters, the real Kylie wouldn't wear makeup:
Surprised? Us too.
