Kendall Jenner's Photoshoot For Vogue India Sparks Controversy

Kendall Jenner's Photoshoot For Vogue India Sparks Controversy
Model Kendall Jenner has yet again found herself at the centre of social media backlash, this time over her featuring as the cover star of Vogue India's tenth anniversary issue.

The 21-year-old model and social media sensation appears on the cover of Vogue India's latest issue, with the headline promising an "Indian Affair" in the inside pages. However some social media users trolled the shoot and were incensed that the renowned publication would choose an American model for the cover of an anniversary issue for an Indian publication.

“Why not an Indian model there are so many???” one user commented on Vogue India‘s Facebook page underneath the Jenner photo shoot. “This doesn’t create the sense that india has its own beauty and character.”

Another wrote, “This is disappointing on so many levels.” “I like Mario Testino’s work but there are so many wonderful Indian models and any one of them would have been worthy of being on the cover of Vogue India – celebrating all things India. Disappointing VOGUE India!”

Others also suggested that Jenner had not posted a shot of yourself in the magazine on her social media, as she usually does with other such shoots. The model has had a rough few weeks of publicity after starring in an advertisement for Pepsi that was widely criticised.

Vogue India has not yet commented publicly on the backlash surrounding Jenner’s cover.
