Kendall Jenner doesn't look like a little sister anymore!

The leggy, 17-year-old half-sister of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian shows off her modeling chops in some colorful new photographs taken for Cosmopolitan. Jenner, who's struck a pose for brands such as Forever 21, Sherri Hill, and Hello Kitty, rocks bright lipstick and her usual long, glossy locks as she tries on some fab looks for spring.

She makes it clear in the accompanying interview that she's more interested in posing in front of the cameras for a photo shoot than being followed by them for a TV show, so fans shouldn't expect to see "Workin' It With Kendall" or a similarly-themed show anytime soon. When she's asked about her immediate future, Jenner is adamant about what her plans do not include.

"Not a reality-show spin-off," she says, breaking the hearts of teenage boys everywhere. "That's not happening. Modeling is my number one priority -- one hundred percent."

Jenner also admits that she has mixed feelings about the reality TV empire that her family has built already.

"The show brought us everything we have, and I realize that, but sometimes I just want to be left alone and be a normal kid for like five minutes," she confesses. "That's tough when the paparazzi are chasing you."

When she's feeling stressed, whether because of her fame, her friendships, or even her love life, Jenner says she relies on her family -- all of it, not just her sisters -- for feedback.

"[Khloe's husband] Lamar is really good at giving guy advice," Jenner explains. "He always tells me to know my worth and never accept less than I deserve."
