Most members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, it seems, are game for a provocative fashion shoot, especially when it's either for a magazine cover or can be construed as art. (See: Kim Kardashian posing for Paper and Love.) Kylie Jenner — a budding beauty entrepreneur whose first lip kit sold out in a matter of seconds on Cyber Monday — is the latest sister to star in an artsy, sexy and semi-nude editorial, with three separate covers for the December/January issue of Interview magazine.

In the shoot by Steven Klein, Jenner poses in a gilded wheelchair, wears head-to-toe patent leather and assless chaps, is carried around like a sex doll and lays in a wooden, coffin-like box. It recalls some of Klein's most satirical shoots centered around the topics of plastic surgery and the vapidity of modern society (like "Risky Business" from a 2008 issue of Vogue), making the images even more surreal — and surprisingly self-aware. 

Considering Jenner's over-the-top online persona on Snapchat and Instagram (where she boasts over 43 million followers), fans might assume that she's as wild and vain as her posts often suggest, but the accompanying interview attempts to dispel that notion. In fact, she admits that she's been the target of bullying — both online and in real life — and that her worst fear is "waking up and finding something bad about [herself] on the internet." But she lets the haters be her motivators, and hopes to one day have a successful makeup line (although she "hates" wearing such heavy makeup and getting dressed up all the time) and start a few more businesses before one day "going off the grid" to a Malibu farm and raising chickens. Goals.

Read the full story with Jenner on Interview's website, and look for the issue when it hits newsstands in the coming days.
