Coming to a February 2011 issue of Teen Vogue near you: Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the little sisters of the infamous Kardashian clan. In addition to a fashion shoot—where the teens are, refreshingly, dressed their age—Teen Vogue gets up-close and personal with the girls and asks them what it's like growing up in the reality TV spotlight.

Teen Vogue: Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted in 2007. What was your initial reaction to having your lives filmed?

Kendall: I've always been a shy person, so all the attention around my family was weird in the beginning. But we've come out of our shells, and now it's cool for people to see how we've grown.

Kylie: It's our lifestyle now—it's just normal.

Teen Vogue: Is your family accurately portrayed on the show?

Kendall: That's literally us. We wake up in the morning, and the cameras are there. We go to sleep at night, and they're still right there. It's reality. We don't have scripts.

Teen Vogue: Any moments you wish hadn't been caught on camera?

Kendall: I've looked back at episodes from the first season where I'm wearing some of the craziest stuff—like green jeans. I don't know what I was thinking!
