An Open Letter to Kendall Jenner

Posted on

Dear Kendall,

We love that you’ve managed to step out of your famous sisters’ shadows and become your own woman — you and your sis Kylie are quickly becoming our favorite members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan!

And we often forget that you’re just 16 years old, because, well, you’re really gorgeous and really famous. You also seem to be a whole lot more mature than we were at that age.

We would never, ever want to live our teens in the public eye — from braces and bad hairdos to tacky backpacks and acne, we shudder — and we made our fair share of fashion faux pas in high school. Yet you always seem to get it right … until now.

We’re just going to say it: tan lines are never attractive.

Wardrobe-wise we give you an A: the black-and-white strapless dress is adorable and we love that you teamed it with on-trend booties and a funky hairstyle. But the tan lines are just so distracting.

One positive takeaway from the style mistake, though? At least we know Momma Jenner isn’t working you too hard — you’re getting some off-time to soak up the sun!

Don’t worry too much; this misstep is easily fixed. Next time, just blend the lighter area with some self tanner or bronzer — maybe you could suggest some for your sisters’ upcoming makeup line? Just sayin’.

Love, StyleWatch
