The Real Reason Kylie Jenner Bared It All for Playboy

Appearing on the cover of a well-respected, high-end magazine is an honor for anyone; however, appearing on the cover of Playboy is a different story. Usually, when someone is asked to appear for the publication, they have to put a lot of thought into deciding whether or not to do it.

Kylie Jenner is always full of amazing surprises, so when fans found out that she would be one of Playboy‘s latest cover models, they couldn’t have been more excited. According to People, the young mom recently admitted that she embraced her sexuality, and thinks that she can do that as well as be a good mother to her daughter, 19-month old Stormi Webster.

The Kardashian-Jenner family are definitely used to being in front of the camera, whether it be for their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians or for the many photoshoots that they have done over the years. So, what is the real reason that Jenner decided to bare it all for Playboy?

It seems like just yesterday that Jenner, the youngest member of the famous family, was just a kid who was looking on as her older sisters rose to fame. As we know, she is now the wealthiest of all of the Kardashian-Jenners, and in fact, arguably the world’s youngest self-made billionaire.

It was earlier this month that Jenner appeared on the cover of the magazine alongside her boyfriend, Travis Scott, in an impressive eight-page spread. According to Cosmopolitan, the makeup mogul made the decision not to actually show her face on the cover, treating fans to a glimpse of herself in red lingerie and a diamond necklace.

Have any of the other Kardashian-Jenner sisters appeared on the magazine cover?

As it turns out, Jenner is not the first member of the family to appear on the cover of Playboy. Fans will remember when an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians spotlighted older sister Kim Kardashian being asked to be the magazine’s cover model. Kardashian struggled with the decision of whether or not to accept the offer. According to People, Kardashian appeared on the cover in 2007, and despite the fact that she was unsure of whether she should do it, she looks back with great memories and says it was one of the best times ever. 

Kylie Jenner has come far

Jenner has accomplished so much that it is hard to believe that she is only 22 years old. She went from appearing on the family’s reality show to being one of the biggest celebrities in the world, and she has her family legacy and her hard work to thank. According to Insider, she certainly has evolved over her 12 years in the spotlight.

Why did Jenner decide to do it? PageSix reports that she was convinced by Scott, who was also the creative director for the shoot, that it was a good thing to do. According to Kylie, she “loved” that Travis would be “behind the cover,” and she “trusts him and his vision.”
