Kendall Jenner's runway debut sparks controversy

By Joy Perrone,

Kendall Jenner, 18, made her runway model debut in a Ralph Lauren show by wearing a sheer, bra-less look that has many criticizing the young star.

While Jenner makes the leap from reality television with Keeping Up With The Kardashians to high-fashion runway model, she may find that the career change comes with it's own kind of controversy. The Huffington Post reports that Jenner walked the Ralph Lauren catwalk, her first ever, during the last night of New York Fashion Week. The problem? The barely-legal model wore a completely sheer top with no bra, leaving her breasts on display.

Jenner talked to Into The Gloss about her big moment, admitting that she was "a little nervous" but still "really excited."

She continued, "It’s my first runway show, so I’ve been practicing. I feel like everybody has their own individual walk, and that’s what makes someone so special."

Who could blame the teen for being nervous? Jenner was made even more unrecognizable by donning a short brown wig, bleached eyebrows, and pale face makeup.
