Vogue India takes heat for putting Kendall Jenner on 10th-anniversary cover
Vogue India just celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special collector’s edition issue. And who’s on the cover? None other than Kendall Jenner, of course!
Indian models were featured inside the issue, but that there was an American on the cover has sparked outrage against the magazine.
Jenner has also been criticized for taking part, with jokes made about her involvement in the recently pulled Pepsi commercial that was also viewed as insensitive and tone-deaf, especially in terms of race, privilege, and power.
This isn’t the first time Vogue has been criticized for its choice in cover models, either. For its March issue, meant to celebrate the “modern American woman,” Vogue included seven models of varying ethnicities. But the public was not convinced that the perfectly slim, clear-faced models were truly representative of “diversity”—especially since the one plus-sized model, Ashley Graham, was covering her thigh.
