If you spit out your morning coffee laughing at the title of this blog, you’re not alone. At this year’s New York Fashion Week, Kendall fucking Jenner is going to be named Fashion Icon of the Decade, and we’re all wondering how much Kris Jenner paid to make this shit happen.
While I do think that Kendall’s fashion sense has evolved into something pretty good over the last 3-4 years, I would literally NEVER call her iconic unless I was referring to her Pepsi commercial. I have no idea what is happening in the world right now, but this shit is just a total mess.
They’re calling Kendall the Fashion Icon of the Decade and I’m not 100% sure what they mean by that given that it’s 2017. It’s not the start of a new decade or anything, so do they mean since 2007? 2010? 2000? Either way, I’m giving it a fuck no.
In the past decade, we’ve seen some TRUE fashion icons emerge (see: Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kate Middleton, even Kristen Stewart, tbh); we’ve also seen some vets get better and keep running that game (see: Charlize Theron, Naomi Campbell, Chloe Sevigny), AND we’ve even seen some younger women, like Kendall, burst out and become full blown muses (see: Bella Hadid, Lily-Rose Depp, and Zendaya). And then there’s Kendall Jenner. Who up until like 4 years ago dresses like this (aka basic af):
Twitter is clearly having a field day with this shit because calling Kendall Jenner the Fashion Icon of the Decade is like calling that lady who wrote “Fifty Shades of Grey” the Writing Icon of the Decade. It’s like, people are buying what you’re selling, but you’re not actually doing anything that great, you know? Like Middle-aged women and young girls probably think you’re risqué, but in reality you’re kinda meh.
And, with that, I have realized that Kendall Jenner is the human embodiment of the 50 Shades of Grey…
