Ugh, it’s almost like the fashion industry isn’t even reading our blog posts lamenting the sexualization of underage models. That can’t possibly be true, though, so what’s the explanation for this swimsuit campaign featuring 15-year-old Kendall Jenner?
Kendall’s the second-youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner gaggles of gals, and it seems she’s following in the footsteps of every single one of her older sisters and staking her identity entirely on what she can do with her face and body. This campaign is for Australian brand White Sands’ Summer 2012 collection, and it makes us wonder what the hell they were thinking.
Do 15-year-old girls wear bikinis? Certainly. But should they be photographed in them to sell stuff? That doesn’t quite seem appropriate, does it?
