Watch: Kendall Jenner Reminisces About Early Modeling Days

Kendall Jenner is baring all.

The longtime Calvin Klein ambassador is starring in the Spring 2023 campaign—even posing topless in the moody images, released March 15. According to the label, the shoot is "stripped back" in order to showcase the "confidence and sensuality" of the campaign stars, who also include FKA twigs and Michael B. Jordan

And while reminiscing on one of her first photo shoots for the brand, back when she was new to the world of modeling, Kendall shared in an E! News exclusive clip, "I was such a kid. I think I was 17 or 18, and we were in like a warehouse-y situation in Brooklyn." 

The 27-year-old looked back at her evolution by noting, "I think back to those photos and I just am like, I'm such a baby from then 'til now. But it's always enjoyable. I love it."

The Kardashians star made her transition from reality TV to modeling in 2011, appearing in a runway show for Sherri Hill when she was just 15 years old. Flash forward just five years, and she was already walking in high-fashion shows for Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and more.

A decade later, Calvin Klein feels like "family at this point," Kendall said, before sharing what it was like working with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott on her latest campaign.

"The vibe is always really, really good," she said in E! News' clip. "High energy. I love the pace that they work at. It's the pace that is conducive for me and we kind of bang it out. And it keeps the energy alive."

Kendall, who has been spending time with Bad Bunny as of late, explained that her favorite pieces are "obviously the underwear" as well as a pair of straight-leg jeans, which she rocks in a series of black and white images.
