Kendall is obviously as keen to gain publicity as her older half-sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe and made the most of the risqué photo by teasing her Twitter followers saying ‘Sneak peak of today’s shoot with the amazing @nomadrj… can’t wait for you guys to see the rest of the photos.’
The photo clearly shows the young model’s breasts exposed under the flimsy black top and there were very quickly a large number of people saying that she shouldn’t have released the photos and an even larger number saying that if they looked like Kendall they would have released the photos too.
Unsurprisingly amongst those rushing to Kendall’s defence was her sister Khloe who took to Twitter to support her younger sister saying ‘Gorgeous @KendallJenner!!! High fashion! Model your booty off and show them how its done!!! Major Model Moment’
She later followed this up with ‘I love seeing all of these haters comments. Naomi, Kate, Cindy…. All fabulous models…. Models and photographers take beautiful Artistic images and I don’t hear you birds chirp then. Sit down and enjoy the view! #SorryNotSorry.’
The photo is one of a series taken of Kendall by Australian fashion photographer Russell James, who is best-known for his work on the Victoria’s Secret advertising campaigns but who also does work for many magazines such as Sports Illustrated and Vogue. Russell’s first big break came in 1996 when he was chosen to shoot a cover for Sports Illustrated featuring Tyra Banks.
Kendall’s racy photo comes just hours after big sister KIm was featured in a very controversial video for Kanye West’s Bound 2. The video shows plenty of shots of a topless Kim writhing around before ending with a scene of them simulating sex on a motorcycle. The video was quickly scoured by many online viewers looking for even more controversy and they soon found a KIm K nipslip hidden amongst the 4 minutes of footage.
