She has also expressed an interest in acting, but has explained that college is a greater priority.[16] Jenner announced that she hopes to pursue an acting career,[17] saying "Right now I love designing and I want to pursue that career once I turn 18, but acting is something I would regret not giving a chance when I'm older, so I would love to try it and see if I like it, I used to do plays in school and then in my community. I would participate in all of them 'til I was 13".[17] In August 2014, Jenner appeared in singer PartyNextDoor's video Recognize[18] with sister Kendall and rapper Drake. Seventeen magazine featured Kendall and Kylie Jenner as Style Stars of 2011[19][20][21] and featured them as Seventeen's Style Ambassadors for the magazine. In 2014, the Jenner sisters co-authored science fiction novel Rebels: City of Indra with ghostwriter Maya Sloan.

It's been long rumored that Jenner has had enhancements to her lips. She had not commented on whether or not the rumors were true, but in clips prompting a new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she and her sister Khloé Kardashian confirmed that her lips have been "plumped," but kept it from the media. “I have temporary lip fillers. It’s just an insecurity of mine, and it’s what I wanted to do,” Jenner stated.[30][31]
