Kendall Jenner & Kylie Jenner Talk Fear of Growing Older: “Life is Scary”.

and sister seem fearless on social media, where they often showcase daring looks to their millions of followers, but there is one thing that definitely seems to scare them: Aging. THE TWO teenagers sit hunched over their phones, tapping, pinching and adding emojis to the screens, seemingly oblivious to the dozen or so people milling around the stark white photography studio on an unremarkable corner in Hollywood.

The 19-year-old model and Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared on Instagram a photo of herself sporting a black and silver jacket and matching short shorts that show off her butt cheeks. These aren’t just any tech-obsessed teens, though – they’re the new guard in arguably the most famous family in the world, and all their swiping and scrolling is making them not only super-influential, but seriously rich, too.

Kendall shared her latest photo two days after she confirmed on Twitter that she and sister Kylie Jenner, 17, are working on a new clothing line together. The two had in April filed to renew a trademark of the name “Kendall & Kylie” and variations of it for apparel and accessories, such as dresses, coats, jackets, shoes, socks, bags, swimwear and undergarments. Over the past two years, they’ve gone from bit players on their big sisters’ TV vehicle to serious stars in the own right, and they’ve done so in a very modern way. Kendall, 19, has risen from reality TV to the runways of major fashion shows (think Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy) and changed the face of high-profile modelling thanks to her huge social media following. Kendall’s little sis recently showed off a chic outfit while stepping out in West Hollywood, California with blonde friend Pia Mia, 18, a singer-songwriter and model who Kylie has referred to as one of her besties.

With 44.7 million followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, she’s the most followed model of all time, a fact not lost on Estée Lauder, who snapped her up as a face of the brand. “[Kendall] is the ultimate Instagirl, and we are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Estée Lauder’s global brand president. The two were spotted on Thursday walking and holding hands while wearing similar clothes—Kylie donned a black, long-sleeve crop top and matching leggings, paired with a beige jacket and reflective aviator sunglasses, while her pal sported a white, strapless crop top and white jeans, paired with thigh-high suede beige boots and white aviator shades.

According to data from the influential fashion site, Polyvore, the 17-year-old has been gradually trending up since mid-2012, and recently became the most searched-for Kardashian, followed by Kendall and then Kim. The two also have their own PacSun line and have partnered with TopShop, which will release the sisters’ new collection this week. “It’s just scary to think how fast everything is rolling and you can’t stop it.

The complaints—and they are plenty—are mainly focused around the high prices, shoddy workmanship, poor quality and a loss of classic, staple pieces in favor or edgier styles. It’s rolling right now,” The Sunday Times quoted Kendall as saying, when asked about getting older. “You see a picture and you’ve changed so much in a year.” showcased her dazzling smile and looked gorgeous in a chic mini-dress as she walked the red carpet and performed at the 2015 iHeartRadio Summer Pool Party on Saturday. Now they want to conquer the design world, too, and in their arsenal is a new collection for Topshop, available in Australia from June 3, that they hope will help cement their fashion cred.

Sleek duster coats sit alongside slogan sweaters on the racks that line one wall of the studio, forming a Kendall + Kylie line of 15 pieces that is, as the press release puts it, “characterised by the girls’ LA lifestyle and their modern, eclectic design aesthetic, [showcasing] their two distinct styles.” Today that distinction is obvious. On stage, she belted out her first big fast-paced pop smash hit, “Miss Independent,” released in 2003, less than a year after she won the first season of American Idol. Kylie, still tapping on her phone with long, white acrylic nails, takes a seat opposite her willowy sister, dressed in a grey jumper with ‘If in doubt, vacation’ emblazoned on the front, sheer black palazzo pants and eyelash extensions that would make Bambi jealous. “We have our own sense of style,” says Kendall, glancing at her little sister. “She goes all out. She also performed her 2004 song “Since You’ve Been Gone” and her latest single, another pop anthem, titled “Invincible,” whose inspiring music video was recently released. Oh, and FYI—that lengthy tulle train proved removable, as the singer ditched it to receive the 2011 Fashion Icon Award on stage, revealing a spike thong.

Former judge Nicki Minaj, 32, took the stage in a cleavage-baring hot pink, green and white Moschino spandex outfit, while Adam Lambert, 33, who came in second place during American Idol’s season 8 in 2009, performed as well. Katharine McPhee, 31, a season 5 runner-up, Smash alum and current star of the show Scorpion, was also spotted at the event, wearing a leopard mini-skirt, beige top and cream cropped jacket. Their biggest style influences are Miranda Kerr (says Kendall) and their older sister, Kim (say both). “Kim’s style is wow, definitely,” Kylie drawls. “Kim and Kanye together – all their outfits are so cool, and they put so much time and effort into being as cool as they are.” They admit to putting plenty of thought into their own ensembles, but they’re not as eager to showcase their personal lives as their famous older sisters have been. “Watching them, and the mistakes they’ve made, has helped me.

Obviously people talk about you online and whatever, but the majority of that isn’t even true.” Unfounded rumours about their family have provided gossip magazines with fodder for years, but one that kept the tabloids electrified for months turned out to be true: Bruce Jenner, the former Olympian and father to Kylie and Kendall, is transitioning to become a woman. The girls, officially banned from answering questions about their father, are irrepressible when it comes to talking about their obvious love for him. “My dad was super-strict,” says Kendall, with a smile. “I know this is random, but he definitely brought [that] into our lives today.

Almost immediately, readers went from cooing over Olivia Maurer (an adorable 14-month girl featured in the slideshow) to booing over a photograph of two snarky cartoons. The backlash spilled over from the site’s comments section to Twitter where people wrote that they found the images to be “disappointing,” “hateful,” “awful and sad.” This of course comes just a few months after the brand upset fans by announcing they would not be selling plus-size items from their Target collection in stores. “These illustrations were the work of one individual and were posted in her personal work area. While we are an employer that does encourage people to decorate their own space, we are a female-dominated company and these images do not reflect our values. We apologies for any harm this may have caused.” Decorating an apartment, an office space or even a bedroom is always a more daunting task than it appears. He taught us to be super-professional, and so did my mum, but he was the one to push us on our schoolwork, which helped a lot in life today.” Now, Kendall says, Bruce loves watching her career flourish. “If he calls and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m working; I’m on a photoshoot’, he’s like, ‘I love it, this is amazing!’ He loves that we’re working and doing something.

And I was shocked, actually, because when I graduated [from] high school, I had to tell him, ‘I’m kind of [too] busy to even go to college right now. With some of the most compelling photography on the market, a Gray Malin print is exactly the thing to upgrade any space from blah to brilliant (and if you’re in the mood to shop, they’re having a Memorial Day sale right now. From classic prints to phone cases, wallpaper and even collaborations with Sperry, Gray Malin is changing the world of art and design one photograph at a time. His approval: perfect.” Kylie pauses mid-text to enter the conversation. “My dad always used to tell me to expand my envelope and do things outside of your comfort zone.” Of course, their comfort zone is the spotlight – they grew up in it.

My images became noted in 2009 when I produced the Prada Marfa series, a sequence of photographs I created on a whim with the assistance of the local township in Marfa, Texas. It’s been happening for so long, I don’t even really remember what it was like without them.” They’re no longer the sweet and awkward support cast to the glamorous stars, though – they’ve well and truly stepped into their sisters’ (Balmain) shoes. But the Jenner sisters insist they didn’t plan their ascendance. “I don’t think either of us kind of – I don’t want this to come off wrong, but I’m just going to say it – wanted it,” says Kendall. “We weren’t sitting there like, all right it’s time, we’re going to have everyone following us.

And there are boundaries; we don’t really show our personal life very much… Even on our TV show, you only see specific things about us because I’m never really home any more. If you let people into your relationships, then if you have a fight or a falling out everyone knows about it and makes it public, so you might as well just keep your relationships…” Kendall jumps into finish her sentence: “… as private as you can.” They insist their ambitions aren’t for more money or more fame. “When you get handed everything you’ve ever dreamed of at such a young age, you can either go down a path of being spoiled and wanting more, or realise that’s not everything and try to find happiness in other places,” says Kylie, a stack of Cartier Love bracelets jangling on her wrist. “So, I feel like that’s what we do.

Now we’re at a place where we’re just like, OK, now we just enjoy things and we don’t strive to get any bigger or want more.” She says she could do without Christmas, even. He was walking down red carpets to go to the Finding Nemo premiere and bringing us, so we were walking down red carpets literally at, like, five and six, even younger.

It’s simple but there’s a lot to be said for simply believing in who you are, what you want and having integrity is going after accomplishing what you believe. Unlike my contemporaries, the photography has expanded from images into multiple product categories as well as brand-aligned collaborations, all the while remaining strictly based around my vision.

This very specific detail is what I believe stands me apart as a photographer and a lifestyle brand, and I hope it continues to stand as the strong platform on which to continue to create upon long into the future.
