Last week Kendall Jenner snagged a prestigious honour, being the covergirl of Vogue US’ September issue, and while many fans the world over think she nailed it, there’s been a bit of outcry over whether or not she deserved it.
The September issue of American Vogue is the most anticipated fashion magazine in the world, with other big celebrities and models to grace the cover of September including Gisele Bundchen, Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and Beyonce.
In case you missed it, here it is:
in a room with a bunch of people I love, looking at this cover made me cry. I FUCKING DID IT. SEPTEMBER VOGUE. this is the coolest thing ever! can’t thank you enough Anna, for giving me the honor. @voguemagazine’s September issue, photographed by @mertalas and @macpiggott and styled by @tonnegood! See the cover story and photos in the link in my bio. ❤️
But fans of the fashion bible, and the hotly anticipated September issue, have taken to social media to express their disdain at the choice of covergirl.
“Just sad that Wintour, Vogue and a lot of top fashion brands have become such sellouts,” said one Twitter user, while another commented, “‘Kendall being on the September Vogue issue is a bit of a joke”.
“Is nothing sacred anymore?!?! I’m already considering cancelling my subscription to “Allure” after they put Kylie Jenner on the cover, and now, perhaps, I need to re-think my 25-year subscription to “Vogue”,” another said.
Check out the outrage here:
#ripVogue Vogue died when it put Kanye on the cover. Putting Kendall on its cover is its zombie corpse walking off a cliff.

Her fans came out in force to defend her hard work, despite claims she doesn’t actually do all that much, with tweets and praise like this:
Landing the cover of Vogue is such a HUGE accomplishment and I am so proud of @KendallJenner ❤️❤️❤️
