The answer to that is yes – at least, according to Kim herself! In a post on her website and app Thursday, the reality star gave a sneak peek at her shoot for the spring 2016 issue of Editorialist magazine with pictures and quotes from the shoot.
"It's so funny, because I'll hear stories like, 'Kris Jenner is the puppet master, having all of her kids do this and that,' and I'm like, 'If they only knew,' " revealed Kardashian West, 35. "I'm the one that will be like, 'Kylie, do this. Kendall, you should do this.' "
And, as for the strategic role she plays in the Kardashian-Jenner household, a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians showed Kardashian West sitting down with sister Kylie Jenner, 18, to talk to her about walking in husband Kanye West's fashion show – and to make sure she knew how important the gig was.
"I've been hearing things like, 'Kylie makes people wait because she's on her phone,' or if she's at photo shoots she brings a ton of friends, so I just want Kylie to know just because Kanye is family, like, this isn't a casual situation. She has to be really professional and go with the flow," Kardashian West said in an interview during the episode.
Looks like Kardashian West is quite the puppeteer: Ultimately, the show ended up being a total success, with model-of-the-moment Bella Hadid even joining Kylie on the catwalk.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
