Kendall Jenner has said she loves doing sensual photoshoots because she does not "get to be hot" very often.

The US supermodel, younger sister of Kim Kardashian, said she loves showing off her sexy side but has few opportunities to do so.

She told photographer Mario Testino on his podcast: "I don't get to be hot very often.

"I love going like, sexual, because I don't really do it much."

Testino said it was strange that Jenner, 21, did not land more raunchy shoots as she has "the body".

"I think that maybe people are intimidated to take you there," he said.

"Maybe you've done a lot of American Vogue, which is not about that. It's more about clothes."

Jenner, who last week appeared at the Met Gala in New York in a see-through black gown with a large slash across the front and no underwear, said: "I love being transformed [but] everyone always wants to make me myself.

"Because not only am I a model, but I guess have a name, too, so they get confused.

"[It's like] they don't know how to use me."
