Kylie Jenner the ‘self-made billionaire’ behaved like quite the diva on the set of a new Harper’s Bazaar Arabia photo shoot.
The 21-year-old make-up mogul appears in the magazine’s new issue celebrating ‘the art of power’ alongside Kris Jenner. The beauty queen’s daughter Stormi, also made her debut alongside the duo, marking the one-year-old’s first ever cover shoot.
Kylie rolled up in her silver Lamborghini Urus an hour late and quickly headed ‘straight to hair and makeup’ with ‘no handshakes, no eye contact’, according to the magazine.
Her demeanor was in stark contrast to her mother Kris , 63, who arrived punctually for the session and ‘took her time to walk around the set, greeting everyone and introducing herself.’
The momager attempted to explain Kylie’s behavior by telling the production team: ‘I’ve always just been here to be a support system and to be able to guide her along a path business-wise, but she is one million per cent the creative.’
And Kris was the first on set with hair and make-up as she ‘playfully’ started ‘striking a series of cheeky poses.’
However, when Kylie eventually made it in front of the cameras, she reportedly got into the spirit and even offered a Dolce & Gabanna dress for Stormi to wear.
‘Let’s do this!’ the youngest of the Jenner clan shouted.
Starting a cosmetics company at the age of 17 and have it reach sales of $360 million four years later, may give one a bit of a prima donna attitude.
But in the interview, Kylie said her life is not about the bank roll.
‘I don’t really do it to make money or think that far into the future if this is going to be super-successful. I just knew my talents and was passionate about make-up and lips and lipsticks,’ she explained.
‘It’s been a real love of mine for as long as I can remember. I never even knew that you can really turn your passion into a business, you know.
‘I just followed my heart and went with how I felt. Now I just feel so blessed every day to wake up, have fun doing what I love and make a career out of it. It’s amazing!’ she declared.
Kylie also waxed on about motherhood and how it has taught her to respect her own mother on a deeper level.
‘When I became a mother, my perspective on life completely changed, and so did how I look at my own mum and appreciate all the things that she’s done for me,’ she began.
‘Now I can understand the way that she feels about me, the way that she loves me, and how strong her love is for all her kids, because of how obsessed I am with Stormi,’ she explained.
Kris jumped in to explain how their relationship is ever evolving.
‘We’ve always been very connected emotionally and spiritually and have this incredibly strong bond. But I think as we both get older, our relationship shifts a bit, ‘ she offered.
‘And for me, I just want her to know that I’m always here to guide her and help her with whatever she needs, rather than it always being, you know, the way it used to be back in the day. Our relationship changes every few years.’
And Kylie understands Kris is her guide.
‘I respect my mother as my mother. I definitely don’t treat her as a sister or a best friend. I feel super-blessed that we’re so close and I can talk to her about anything like a sister, or like a best friend. But she definitely is a huge mother figure in my life.’
But she also realizes how important Kris is to her make-up empire.
‘I credit my mum a lot for where Kylie Cosmetics is now. With my creativity and her business mind, together we’re just the dream team.’
