Kendall Jenner’s latest photoshoot has angered professional ballet dancers worldwide.
The reality television star covers the latest issue of Vogue Espana, where she enters the ballet studio to strike a slew of elegant poses — or so she thought.
The final photos from the shoot have set off a barrage of criticism from dancers who attacked the magazine and Jenner for her appalling ballet technique.
“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller joined the debate recently when she commented on one of Jenner’s final shots. “I don’t make it a habit of commenting on all the dancers that post pics with incorrect technique. I would never get anything else done!” the reality television star wrote. “But I cannot be a fan of this shoot. There are so many amazing dancers in the world…Kendall Jenner is not one of them! Shame on Momager Kris Jenner!!! She never made these kids take dance class. She better get North West to the @aldcstudiola before it’s too late!”
Jenner also appears in a video for the cover shoot where the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star is filmed prancing around a dance studio in ballet-inspired looks. “The video is, apparently, a sort of little-girl fantasy on ballerina-ness,” a Dance Spirit blog reads. “Which, O.K. But to our eyes, the whole thing reads as pretty disrespectful to the artists who devote their lives to this demanding craft.”
Elsewhere, the outrage continued with many turning to Twitter to voice their opinions. Check out a selection of tweets below.
