12 May Kendall Jenner starred on the cover page of Vogue India.
A special supplement was issued to celebrate magazine’s 10th anniversary and the cover star for May’s issue was chosen Kendall Jenner.
The supermodel has already appeared on 14 Vogue covers, which is a very promising start.
Ms Jenner was also inspired to be shot by one of her ‘favourite photographers’ Mario Testino, who was in charge for fashion shots in the collector’s issue.
“He has such a young personality and I love working with him. This will probably be my most memorable shoot with him because I flew all the way down to India for it,” she said.
According to the Editor of Vogue India, Priya Tanna, she is full of excitement. In the ‘editor letter’ she said:
“Producing this issue has been like working on a block- buster movie—exciting, filled with nerves and thrills, and featuring the biggest stars in fashion in leading roles— Vogue India, along with superhero photographer Mario Testino, whose direction steered this issue, and cover girl Kendall Jenner, who undoubtedly is this generation’s most followed and photographed millennial. Add to it make-up maven Charlotte Tilbury as well as a star cast that includes Katrina Kaif and Sushant Singh Rajput, with new talents such as actor Sean Penn’s actor-turned-model son, Hopper Penn, making his India debut with Indian-Australian model Kelly Gale.
The result has been spectacular. It has also reinforced why I’ve loved fashion magazines all my life and, in particular, Vogue. I hope this issue gives you a chance to treat your senses to something so incredibly unforgettable and beautiful that it stays with you forever.
Over the 100 pages of people and fashion shot by Testino, you’ll be drawn to his technicolour, vivacious and delectable version of India. The images capture the old versus the new—Kendall in Rajasthan and Kelly in New York, avant-garde fashion on one hand and royal portraits captured at a traditional wedding on the other. This is a collector’s issue.”
