Update: Kendall Jenner responds to critics of her bikini pictures in People Magazine. She reveals her dad Bruce Jenner was concerned.
“I am excited to be working as a model, doing what I love to do.” The Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star says her family is on board with her decision to model. “My entire family was very supportive, though my dad [Bruce Jenner] was a bit concerned at first, he knows that I am responsible enough that I wouldn’t do anything I wasn’t ready to do, or didn’t want to do.” Kendall may be inspired by supermodels like Cindy Crawford and Gisele, but she’s not looking to grow up too fast either. “Going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy. It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear. I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer–Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”
Bindi Irwin seems like a well adjusted child at 12.
And there’s sweet 13 year old Abigail Breslin. If you are child on the red carpet I guess this is an appropriate outfit. Her lavender toenails and red sandals are cute and age appropriate.
And then there’s the Kardashian clan’s little sister.
There’s no denying that Kendall Kardashian is a beautiful girl and is modelling in this photo, but posing in a bikini seems wrong somehow. If she were my daughter I would be nervous about allowing this. I wonder if Bruce Jenner, her dad, has any say in this at all. Remember she’s only a year older than Abigail and 2 years older than Bindi at 14. The images are from Huffington Post.
As older stars are expected to botox and plump their faces with fat to look like babies, the modelling industry is using younger and younger girls for their shoots and applying make-up on them to make them appear like grown women. I think the whole idea is warped.
Without all that make-up, she’s obviously just a little girl. She should have stuck with this kind of more wholesome modelling till she’s a bit older? Or am I really being a fuddy duddy? What do you think?
