(NEW YORK) — Kendall Jenner has come a long way since her days as a preteen, being embarrassed by her over-the-top half-sisters on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian’s younger half-sister covers the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, and the 17-year-old opened up to the magazine regarding the critics who say she’s too thin.
“I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny,” she said. “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.”
The 5’10″ teen showed a preview of the shots to her fans on Twitter Tuesday, tweeting, “amazing shot from my shoot with the incredible John Russo.”
Jenner’s famous half-sisters also couldn’t get enough of her glamorous shots.
“How gorgeous does Kendall look in her Harper’s Bazaar Arabia spread?!? I cannot get over these pics!” Khloe Kardashian posted to her blog. “She is absolutely breathtaking!!!! The fact that she is on the cover is truly an incredible honor and achievement and I am so proud of her. My baby sister is growing up!”
“Kendall’s Harper’s Bazaar Arabia spread is so stunning!” Kim Kardashian posted to her blog. “She did an amazing job and the photos turned out absolutely gorgeous.”
Kim Kardashian posted for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia back in 2011 and was also shot by John Russo.
