Clearly, Kendall Jenner gets the concept of being in Vogue.

Just days after announcing her massive contract as the face of beauty giant Estée Lauder, the in-demand model is gracing the pages of Vogue for the magazine's December issue. And while the harrowing task of posing for the glossy may intimidate a less-seasoned model, Kendall's got nothing to worry about—her whimsical spread is the picture of refined, high-fashion beauty.

Anointed as a "fashion muse, It girl, Instagram sensation" and "cover star" by Estée Lauder, the fledging supermodel emanates a cool poise in her Vogue shots. She rocks a belted chiffon Prada frock with a black brimmed hat and Tiffany & Co diamond jewels in a haunting high-fashion shot. From rustic elegance to flirty and feminine, Kendall again captivates with her signature smolder, wearing a sequined Marc Jacobs merlot design.

The 19-year-old is no stranger to the hallowed halls of Vogue, counting the mag's fearless editor Anna Wintour amongst her chief fashion contacts. Plus, Kendall's popped up in the mag before, and even scored a two-sided cover of Teen Vogue back in September.

The past year has sealed the whimsical brunette's future as the next celebrity model sensation; she's walked in 13 fashion shows across the globe during the fall fashion season. We're talking Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and more! And that's not even counting her reign as the It model of Paris Haute Couture fashion week last summer, or her many previous modeling gigs.

Kendall, who's dropped her commanding 'Jenner' last name professionally, knows her success isn't about clinging to her family's reputation—it's about honest, hard work.

"I'm not trying to use a family name or anything," Jenner said in an interview on ABC's Nightline. "In reality, I worked pretty hard for this… It wasn't like I just got it magically and it just happened."

And while the face of Estée Lauder radiates with confidence today, she claims that wasn't always the case.

"Everybody knows I'm like a little more shy, especially when I was younger, I was super shy," she said. "When I was a kid, I was so homesick at all times. I would go to a friend's house and I would be 'all right, I'm going to have a sleepover, Dad.' He would be like, 'great.' I would call him at like 9 p.m., 'Dad, come pick me up please.'"

Obviously, shyness is not an issue for the world-renowned starlet now.
