Kim Kardashian's little sister Kendall Jenner is said to be "turning her back on her celebrity when it comes to modelling" in order to be taken seriously, according to stylist Katie Grand.

Jenner is currently appearing on the pages of French Vogue and has walked for Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy already.

Stylist Katie Grand, who worked with Kendall on her Vogue shoot, told Grazia, "Fashion always wants a new darling. She's unique in wanting to turn her back on her celebrity when it comes to modelling, she's with a smaller, very respected agency called Society who work specifically with high-end designers, photographers and stylists.

"It would have been easy for Kendall to go with a bigger agency and gone down a celebrity route but she wants to be taken seriously as a model just like the rest of them."

The 18-year-old beauty previously told E! News about modelling, "It's the world I wanna be living in."
