Kendall Jenner clearly inherited good genes from her family ... and then some!

The 19-year-old model looked simply stunning on the March cover of Allure magazine sporting a huge set of curls and in the candid interview she admitted she's ready to step out of her big sister's shadow.

The teen beauty, who walked in her first Marc Jacobs runway show last year, revealed she was happy that her famous family didn't sit front row for her big debut.

"I didn't need it to be a family affair," she told the magazine. "As selfish as this sounds, I wanted the attention to be on me for five seconds rather than my family. If they were sitting front row, it would have been all about, 'Oh, Kim goes to Kendall's first fashion show!'"Kendall Jenner

The reality star didn't stop there either, specifically pinpointing her older sister, Kim Kardashian, whose fame has continued to grow following her marriage to Kanye West.

"I love Kim, but for a minute I wanted it to be like, 'OK, this is [Kendall's] thing-she's taking it seriously,'" Kendall dished.

Making a name for herself despite her famous upbringing shouldn't be too difficult considering her incredible looks. Kendall looked grown up and striking in the photo shoot, rocking not one, but two racy swimsuits. Both black swimsuits featured strappy cutouts that showed off her fit physique.

Clearly, she's a natural in front of the camera, but Kendall also revealed that she didn't always have that comfort in front of the lens.

"I still have a hard time looking at someone when I'm talking to them, and I get nervous," she said. Unless that someone is holding a camera. "When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out," says the model. "It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself."

It sounds like she's finally accomplished that! Check out more photos from the spread above.
