Kendall Jenner’s Lackluster Modeling Skills Can’t Save Fendi’s Fall 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

It’s quite clear that Karl Lagerfeld is a fan of Kendall Jenner. He recently photographed her for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and she regularly walks the runways for Chanel and Fendi. Now, Kendall is back as the face of Fendi (after a brief hiatus). The Lagerfeld-shot campaign for the luxury Italian fashion house’s Fall 2016 collection didn’t impress our forum members, however. Sporting a bouffant hairstyle, Kendall sits cross-legged in the studio with one hand on her face, drawing attention to a gorgeous pair of cat eye sunglasses.

According to our forum members, Kendall’s modeling skills aren’t up to scratch. “She gives me nothing… there is no emotion or expression in her face, her eyes look lost and she looks bored… I’m sorry but this is just bad, how is one supposed to be attracted by those sunglasses?” asked apple.

“When you thought things couldn’t get worse, then it did,” laughed an unimpressed TaylorBinque.

Also left extremely underwhelmed by the shot was Benn98, complaining, “Cannot get over how cheap the top looks! I think her pose is OK, but some expression wouldn’t hurt.”

DutchHomme wasn’t exactly impressed, either. “LOL, what is she doing? This is very weak for Fendi. But it does not really matter because they don’t book her for her modeling, they book her to get publicity. Sad to see a big brand being so desperate to get attention,” he pointed out.

“I like Kendall, but we all (except for Karl, apparently) know how weak of a model she is when it comes to photos. ESPECIALLY in the face… The shot isn’t bad, tho. Is just boring,” said guimon.

“I like the styling, the colors and her pose…but yet it does not pop. I want to see more though…it is already better than last season’s Fendi campaign IMO,” reasoned Zposen.
