Would You Call Kylie Jenner a 'Fresh Face?'

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Kylie Jenner is one of five "fresh faces" featured in Marie Claire’s May 2016 issue, alongside Zendaya, Ellie Goulding, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Hailey Baldwin. On her respective cover, the younger Jenner sister ditches her usual Yeezyfied attire and now-signature ‘90s brown lip in favor of a fuchsia Hugo Boss gown and rosy makeup, and frankly, she looks lovely. But let’s have a (virtual) show of hands here — would you call Kylie Jenner, who over the past two years alone has fronted issues of Teen VogueCosmopolitan, Elle UKInterview, and, most recently, Paper — not to mention all those weeklies — a "fresh face?" While we’re at it, would you consider her fellow cover stars Ellie Goulding or Zendaya to be industry up-and-comers? Hmm.

In her interview, which Marie Claire teased online this morning, Jenner divulges that she actually gets insecure after sharing revealing snaps of herself on social media. "When I post sexy photos, I always regret it," she says. "Like, Oh my God, everyone is seeing my body. I get really weird about it." Again, hmm.
