Do you remember the days when Kim Kardashian was by far the most popular member of the Kardashian clan? Kim couldn’t even leave the house without makeup on, or change her hair colour without grabbing every headline. However, that could soon become a thing of the past, because it appears that Kendall Jenner is casting a shadow over her big sister’s fame.
The 33-year-old reality TV star may have bared her body to the world first, when her steamy sex tape launched her career, and since then she’s been happy to flaunt her bosom in many a sheer top, a racy selfie and even a topless rap video with her baby-daddy, Kanye West. But, for the first time ever, there’s a bit of sibling nipple rivalry happening, and miss Jenner could actually be winning the race!
Ever since Jenner turned 18, she’s been garnering attention for her more adult image. It was Australian photographer Russell James’ risqué shot that got the media’s attention, as he captured the young model in a sheer top, which slightly exposed her breasts. This was the first—but not the last—time that the world saw Jenner baring her chest.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s modeling career is gaining momentum and she has just strutted down the runway for Marc Jacobs at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York on Thursday, Feb.13. Barely recognizable in a short wig and bleached eyebrows, Jenner made her runway debut in a see-through V-neck Marc Jacobs top and brown cropped pants, solidifying herself as a high-fashion model. However, it was not the fashion that was on everyone’s mind, all the internet was interested in were Jenner’s nipples.
Jenner seems oblivious to the attention that her breasts have attracted and instead she thought that the most dramatic change in her appearance were her bleached eyebrows. She told Into the Gloss, “I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career. The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it—like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!”
Twitter and Facebook was in a frenzy once the image of Jenner walking the runway was released, suggesting that her outfit choice was inappropriate for her age and even “slutty”. Regardless of your viewpoint, it is hard to deny that Jenner has not been the topic on everyone’s tongue for the last week. Oh, remember Kim Kardashian?
Kim may have been the one to break into the family business of nudity first, but is Jenner proving that she is the updated, hotter version of her big sister? To rub salt in the mom-of-one’s wound, it appears that the nipple rivalry is not her only problem. Jenner has gathered a lot of attention from the fashion world recently, and there’s been talk of a potential race between sisters for the prestigious U.S Vogue cover—something that Kardashian has been desperately trying to attain for most of her career.
Tell us what you think. Is Kendall Jenner about to knock her sister off the pedestal and take the Kardashian family throne?
