Kendall Jenner is the latest face of Agua Bendita’s swimsuit collection. The 17-year-old Kardashian half-sister shows off her slim physique in an array of colorful bikinis and one-piece swimsuits for the Columbian swimwear brand's new campaign. She's in elite company in the shoot, alongside Candice Swanepoel, a top Victoria's Secret model.
This is Jenner’s latest endorsement, as she and younger sister Kylie also have their own clothing line via PacSun. The statuesque beauty is currently signed to Wilhelmina Models in 2010, according to Us Weekly.
And though the young reality star looks great in a bikini, back in March she revealed in Harper's Baazar that she is constantly bashed for her slim figure.
“I’m trying to gain weight, but my body won’t let it happen. What people don't understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat -- it's not a nice feeling,” she said.
On Twitter, people have commented on her weight, one saying, “Kendall Jenner is far too skinny #CheckThoseLegs #eww” -- @MissAlisaBaby. Another Twitter user, Amanda Fazzio, wrote, “Kendall Jenner is skinny as hell ... She needs to have a couple plates of rice and beans dayum chica."
But sister Kim Kardashian is supportive -- and jealous. The curvier older sister posted a video called “Envy” in April showing Jenner tanning in a bikini while Kardashian comments, "Look at this body on my little sister Kendall Jenner." Kim later explainied she's jealous of her sister's height. Jenner is 5-feet-10-inches tall, 8 inches taller than Kardashian.
Meanwhile, Jenner’s parents Bruce and Kris just announced they are separating after 22 years of marriage, and it seems Kendall has chosen whose side she is on. Last week she posted a photo of herself wearing a button that read, “I Know Bruce Jenner Personally.”
That was a few days after Kris Jenner told E! News that she and Bruce were splitting up. “We are living separately and we are much happier this way. But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
