Nipple in the Name of Hypocrisy
Serious Kardashian dilemma… Are you ready??? Bare nipple…??? or gut wrenching, tear jerking, Hufflepuff… (congrats if you knew that Hufflepuff was a house in Harry Potter rather than a bunch-a-malarkey…) but anyway here’s my beef:
So last night Kendall Jenner walked the Marc Jacobs runway show as the result of her four year effort to be a model in a real New York fashion show. Her efforts included: going bleach blonde… -as far as her eyebrows were concerned…- and… wearing a sheer top that showed her nipples. What. A. Slut.
Okay, for everyone that knows me, you’ll know I’m being completely sarcastic because I love fashion from Gaultier, to Dior, to Versace etc. and I love fashion and styling on that level which more than often, leaves nipples out and directs focus to the clothing rather than to the bras underneath them. Basically, a line spends thousands of dollars finishing the innards of a sheer top for the express purpose of exposing them and bringing attention to details of a seam within a top. Marc Jacobs decided to selectively choose Kendall Jenner in an unmitigated act of kindness for his Fall 2014 show and in-so-doing required her to go basically topless and betray her sisters(?).
Betray her sisters??? Well… As Khloe Kardashian was twitting up a storm and defending her younger sister for going topless for a brand Kim has… in the past… gone against the idea and been public with her disgust and anger in relation to this kind of public nudity in the past. But was it justified from Khloe or Kim?
Kim Kardashian writes on Instagram:
Proudest sister ever!!!! I love watching you live your dream!” and other big sis Khloe Kardashian echoes those sentiments with, “My baby sister killed it today walking in the Marc Jacobs fashion show!!! Kenny you are so dope to me!!! Congrats my baby!!! … She’s too dope for you 2 understand! Yall would trade places with her in a second! The hate is real! Lol bye haters! (quote via blog.zap)
A while back Kim was shot nude for W magazine and when the editorial finally landed on shelves this was her reaction to the topless pics:
“I’m more naked here than I was in my Playboy (in 2007). I’m so f—ing mad right now.] … [This is serious porn ... you can see nipple.] … I feel so taken advantage of. I’ve definitely learned my lesson.” (Hollywood Reporter here)
Well Kim you can definitely see Kendall’s nipple… is this porn? are you so mad right now?
Fashion will snap your photo and put it in a magazine so fast your head will apparently spin, so here’s a note to the not-so-wise… if you choose to go topless… then please be prepared for the consequences of the rest of the world seeing you that way… D U H…
Here’s the full video of the show. Skip to 4:25 to see Kendall Jenner.
