Though we currently live in a world in which Kendall Jenner has never covered Vogue (okay, there was that "special issue" for subscribers back in April, but it was sponsored entirely by the beauty brand for which Jenner is a spokesperson), that world may not exist for long. According to Us Weekly, Kendall is set to cover not just any issue of Vogue, but the most important issue of Vogue.
After Kendall debuted a new, shoulder-length haircut on Snapchat on Friday, the magazine reported that the chop was actually for the sake of one Anna Wintour:
