Kendall Jenner’s Newest Magazine Cover Receives Dismal Reviews From Forum Members

Joining BFF Gigi Hadid at the newsstands this month, Kendall Jenner stars as W Korea‘s newest cover girl. The magazine is usually pretty on point when it comes to delivering original and visually stimulating covers, but our forums aren’t exactly jumping for joy over this month’s offering. To celebrate its 11th anniversary, the title tapped the Estée Lauder spokesperson to pose before the lens of Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin wearing Louis Vuitton

Per usual, our feisty forum members weren’t shy about voicing their opinions and dislike for Kendall’s modeling abilities. “Even Inez and Vinoodh can’t save Kendull. #GurlBye,” shared a less than impressed GreyVetiver immediately.

“She has the same expression on both her covers, not even the best photographers can help her,” replied KateTheGreatest in agreement.
Sharing the same disapproving sentiments was Marc10: “Her absolute lack of modeling skills and charisma is inexcusable. When her hype dies down, I hope they feel embarrassed when they look back at all these covers they gave her.”

“Shame, a waste of I&V. An exact replica of U.S. W‘s spread for the March 2016 issue and looks like outtakes from that same shoot… Good thing Kendall wasn’t included in that editorial,” acknowledged WeberFanatic.

“The second cover [below] is the best of a bad lot. I feel like she needed to be jumping around or smiling to produce a somewhat good shot,” suggested an uninterested Elite13.

MON wasn’t willing to show much enthusiasm either, pointing out, “Put this beside Lara Stone for Vogue Korea on the newsstands, and it’s nothing. Shame.”

Yet another dismal review of a Kendall magazine cover, but do you agree with our forum members? Add your own two cents here.
