The goofy kid who is now termed as a Supermodel, will be hitting the cover of Vogue España. However, controversies are all over with regard to a video of Kendall Jenner, for Vogue España.

The 20-year-old reality star, in a shoot for Vogue Espana, appeared in ballet-inspired activewear, tulle, leg warmers, slippers and sheer skirts. She posed in a studio, modelling that falls fairly under the repeating ballet trend. Reports say that she was pretending to be an actual dancer, since she is not real-life-ballet dancer. This didn’t stop people in the ballet line getting crotchety about the dancing or spinning. Kendall was basically just having some fun modelling while wearing her ballerina- themed outfit for the Vogue España video. While she may look like one of the dancer as they have portrayed her in such look, many people in this dance community are just not convinced.

Moreover, the “Dance Mom” star Abby Miller is just not convinced with that either. Abby is known for her bold and outspoken nature. She shared her thoughts through an Instagram post not only regarding Kendall Jenner’s video, but also the Momager, Kris Jenner. She blames the mom plus manager for not taking her kids to the ballet dance class.

According to SMH, only professional ballerinas could wear ballet-inspired clothes and  sway around the barre. Or, as Margaret Fuhrer mentioned for DanceSpirit, it is “disrespectful” to their art.

She expresses and writes, ‘They decided to dress Jenner up in tutus and legwarmers and have her “do ballet,” though she’s clearly not ballet trained. In the voiceover, she talks about “loving being a kid” and missing childhood; the video is, apparently, a sort of little-girl fantasy on ballerina-ness. Which, OK. But to our eyes, the whole thing reads as pretty disrespectful to the artists who devote their lives to this demanding craft.”
