It's official: Kendall Jenner is the model of the moment.

The 19-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star scored her first GQ cover, released Wednesday. Jenner bares her bikini body in a $252 Adriana Degreas two-piece and an $80 Calvin Klein Jeans jacket.

While the cover is titillating, it pales in comparison to the photo spread. For the magazine's May 2015 issue, Jenner shows off her sexier side by posing topless in a series of shots. She's not entirely naked, however, as she wears Marc Jacobs pants and Cosabella panties in one picture, plus a Topshop necklace and a Cartier bracelet. In another photo, she flashes some under-boob in a Calvin Klein tank top.

Jenner posed for photographer Steven Klein.

Her full GQ interview will be released Thursday.

In 2015 alone, Jenner has appeared on the covers of magazines like Allure and Garage. Along with Justin Bieber, Ansel Elgort and Gigi Hadid, she recently starred in a Vogue spread titled "The New Brat Pack." In addition to her print work, Jenner has walked the runways for Balmain, Chanel, Donna Karan, Fendi, Giles, H&M Studio, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, No. 21, Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang.

Suffice to say, Jenner is killing it.

"I think what's so exciting about her is that she has this social media influence along with a fashion credibility in a distinct way that speaks to millennials," Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Estée Lauder's global brand president, told The New York Times in November. "There is really no one else like her out there."

"She's really communicating to a lot of girls," Olivier Rousteing, Balmain's creative director, said of Jenner's appeal. "You know, like those models in the '90s, Claudia [Schiffer], Naomi [Campbell]—young girls were dreaming of being a model. I think Kendall is bringing these things. Girls are dreaming about how to be her."

Jenner realized early on that in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a supermodel, she'd have to work twice as hard as aspiring models who hadn't been on reality TV. To do that, she signed a contract with The Society Management, which specializes in high-end bookings. "We had to be very strategic and specific, to really have people take me seriously and not mess around," she said.

"Some people are hesitant with me, and they just worry or wonder for a second," she added. "But then when the chance gets taken..."

How does Jenner juggle it all?

"It's s definitely two different worlds. I feel like Hannah Montana. But it's fun."

GQ's May 2015 issue hits newsstands Apr. 28.
