Case in point? The 19-year-old supermodel once again graces the pages of Vogue -- this time for their all-important September issue -- rocking a Victorian style and cuddling a cat. But this isn't just any old cat -- it's actually Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld's beloved cat Choupette.
Check out Kendall's fierce pose with the high-maintenance feline, who has her own book and more than 48,000 Twitter followers in the account invented in her honor.
Although Kendall's status in the fashion world is pretty undeniable now, according to the brunette beauty, this was hardly the case when she started.
"You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back," Kendall recalled to V magazine in April. "It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees [when models go out to meet agencies, designers, etc.], trying my best to break into this business as a teenager."
"My parents taught me that work ethic is one of the most important keys in life, and I believe it," she added about not giving up.
