Vogue Magazine recently released a photo shoot celebrating the 15th anniversary of its CFDA Fashion Fund, which is a competition which launched the careers of several American designers, rewarding them with prizes and a platform to share their designs. Now among the models included in the shoot were Kendall Jenner, and Imaan Hammam which found them in a number of different looks. Kendall is the one that stands out though after people pointed out her false freckles on her face, in addition to her plump lips plus an Afro.
Critics have also questioned she had her hair styled in that manner, and why a model who possessed thick, coarse hair naturally was not selected to model the look instead. “Why didn’t you get someone with an actual afro and freckles to model for you instead? And you try this all the time,” one person wrote. Another shared, “Both her Afro and lip injections are distracting, but only the former is in truly poor taste.” Her family has been accused of cultural appropriation in the past so this might be the reason for the critics.
