The 20-year-old model opens up about growing up in the Kardashian household in the September issue of Vogue, and why you don't know as much about her personal life compared to her siblings, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe.
"I've always been super different from all my sisters, especially my Kardashian sisters," Kendall stresses. "They’ve always been into the glam thing and dressing up every day and being in the thick of it. Part of me loves that, but at the same time, I love dressing down and having my private life."
"Every day, I have to find a way to escape; I have to go borrow someone else's car," she shares about avoiding paparazzi. "Sometimes it takes me an hour to figure out how to get rid of these guys who have been following me all day. And the second that I feel it getting the better of me, I have to go chill myself out -- go take a bath or something to, like, disconnect from it. It keeps you real and sane and humble."
Of course, she is still grateful to her sisters for teaching her plenty about dealing with fame.
"Obviously, my success came after my sisters' -- I got to see all of their mistakes and watch out for them," Kendall acknowledges. "One of the best lessons I ever learned from my sisters is not to take everything so seriously. Just leave it alone -- it will pass in a week. That's how I grew up. My sisters are so f**king strong, and they taught me and my little sister to just toughen up and not let it affect us. You know what's real."
The high fashion magazine describes Kendall as a "loner" growing up, who spent a lot of time in her room playing video games. The brunette stunner admits to being jealous of her younger sister, 19-year-old Kylie.
"I remember crying in my bedroom about the fact that Kylie had so many friends and I didn't," she recalls.
Still, she had her own form of teenage rebellion.
"The only thing I can think of is that I would sneak out at night and go sleep at my boyfriend's house," Kendall says when asked what was the worst thing she did as a kid.
But she insists that her and Kylie's parents -- Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner -- gave them the best upbringing they could.
"If I'm being honest, my little sister and I have every right to go crazy," she muses. "You would expect that from us. But neither of us has the desire to do that. I think it says a lot about the way we were raised. Not even just by my parents, but my Kardashian sisters and what they've taught us. My parents did something right, and thank God."
Kendall also got candid with Vogue about Caitlyn's transition, including what still makes her emotional from time to time.
"Sometimes I look at a picture of my dad when she was a guy, and it makes me a little sad -- I get emotional," she shares. "You have to get past it -- you've got a new person to love. It's kind of a blessing in disguise -- if that's not the wrong way to say it."
