No doubt about it -- Kendall Jenner is growing up fast. The second-youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner crew, the 18-year-old recently moved into her own place, ousted big sister Kim Kardashian on FHM magazine's sexiest women list, and has found success in the modeling world.
Even so, the teenager has taken some heat for some of the saucy photos she's posted online of herself, like an on-purpose nip slip, or showing off her sideboob, or her rear in itty-bitty bikini bottoms. But the reality star seems to finally be getting the message that if you're going to be showing some skin, at least do it in a tasteful way and call it art.
Kendall recently posed topless for Interview magazine, and while racy, the photos are beautiful.
The provocative pics were snapped by Mikael Jansson, a frequent contributor to top fashion tomes like Vogue and W Magazine. Many of them feature her topless, with the most provoking one being an image of her hands covering her bare breasts, as she looks to the side through sweeping strands of her dark hair.

Yes, the photos are sexy. She's a model now, what did we expect? She told the interviewer that she's always dreamed of a career in the fashion world. "To be honest, this is exactly what I wanted to be," she said. "I was always looking up to supermodels ... they were, like, my superheroes."
She also said that she gets inspiration from her dad, Bruce Jenner. "My dad is my everything. He always had the craziest speeches for Kylie and me growing up, good words to live by." His best advice? "'Dream big, work hard.' My parents brought up Kylie and me to be workaholics. That's something I really appreciate."
Let's hope so, because if Kendall wants to really make it as a model, she's going to have a lot of gruelling hours maintaining her slim frame, sitting for shoots, and probably a whole lot of waxing. And she's going to have to do it all hungry. I often imagine that's the worst part of being a model.
Do you think Kendall's topless photos are classy or crass?
