13 year-old Kylie Jenner, the youngest Kardashian, inevitably ‘models’

It was just a couple of months ago that 13 year-old Kylie and 14 year-old Kendall Jenner hit the red carpet together for the premiere of Easy A. The girls were wearing pushup bras, makeup, heels and dresses that hit mid-thigh. Kendall had already modeled at that point, with some semi-controversial and arguably suggestive bikini photos. Kylie had only done some light modeling work for Sears at the age of 12, and she was clothed appropriated for her age.

Kylie and Kendall are the younger half sisters of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. They appear on their family’s reality show, and as I’ve mentioned in the past it looks like they’re ready to take the reins when the public interest in the older girls (hopefully) inevitably fades. Hence 13 year-old Kylie’s latest modeling photos, in which she wears full makeup and a short skirt. She’s learning the family trade from her sisters and that includes caking on the makeup and posing. Now, she’s a lovely girl and I don’t want anyone taking shots at her looks – that’s not what this is about. This is about a 13 year-old girl being encouraged to “model” and being promoted by her famous older sister.

Kylie’s sister Kim posted these photos on her blog with the message “I can’t get over how stunning Kylie looks in these shots from a recent fashion photo shoot she did with Nick Saglimbeni. Monica did the styling and chose the most gorgeous pieces for Kylie to wear. I am a very proud big sister!” I don’t want to sound so cynical about such a young girl, but it’s like Kylie is proving her worth as a Kardashian. Would Kim be bragging online if her sister got an A on a test or performed an instrument in the school band?

    she’ll have to get that nose fixed if she wants to be as “serious” as the other Ks.

  2. brin says:

    She shouldn’t associate herself with the Kardashian name,that’s not a positive. She should be glad she’s a Jenner.

  3. Nice says:

    good for her, hopefully their mother won’t turn the girls into publicity whore’s like their older sisters.

    Kris is a KRAZY stage mom that perhaps should be investigated buy CPS

    Poor Bruce…

    i think the 14 year old is prettier though

  4. guesty says:

    these pics seem awkward for her. as if she’s literally trying to ‘keep up’ with the other girls.

    hopefully she’ll be able to establish her own identity…but that seems highly unlikely within that particular family dynamic.

  5. devilgirl says:

    Sorry, but in my non-expert opinion, that is not a high fashion model face. Just because you are tall, doesn’t mean you are a model.

    When, oh when, are these people going to stop invading tv, magazines, and the webz?

  6. bellaluna says:

    Too much makeup. She fits right in with the rest of her family, no?

  7. mln says:

    Whew that top picture is just ridiculous since she is only 13 I am not going to comment on her non model looks but really is there any doubt why she got the job?

    • Love77 says:

      I think she looks absolutely gorgeous.. She’s famous your not get over yourself she’s stunning! People would kill to look like that!

  8. nnn says:

    Sorry but she’s not model material to the least. I used to model back in the day and this is definitely a tall slim girl who is not model material.

    They will just milk that Kardashian cow milk as long as they can for good ‘ole dollars.

  9. Gabriela says:

    I don’t see why this is so bad. I see those pageant kids wearing heels at the age of 6 and I find it disturbing.
    But both Kylie and Kendall are becoming teenagers and that’s how they act. They wear heels, makeup and dream of being a model.
    Let’s be honest, at the age of 13, we would all have loved to be in Kylie’s place.

  10. Sarah says:

    She’s a very pretty girl, I would’ve guessed from these pictures that she was in her 20’s.

  11. hellen says:

    Just tell me now, are they ANY MORE OF THEM AT HOME?! Are these the last? There isn’t a little 8 year old Kassidye or 3 year old Khrystynah lurking about?

    God I hope not.

  12. original kate says:

    “Let’s be honest, at the age of 13, we would all have loved to be in Kylie’s place.”

    not all girls want to be models; when i was 13 i was very into reading jane austen and riding horses, not so much into makeup. she’s a cute girl and the outfits seem fine to me, but she has that trashy kardashian taint clinging to her.

  13. weslyn says:

    how old were they when they were pole dancing on tv, in front of their brother and friend?

  14. jc126 says:

    She’s cute, but this seems very wrong and like it doesn’t suit her.
    She is NOT a Kardashian.

  15. Bronwyn says:

    I’m sure ther are many girls who read Jane Austen, ride Horses and would like the affirmation of their attractiveness, which I think is the allure of being a Model for a lot of young girls. That being said, I agree that most of us as 13 year-olds would have loved to be Models or Model pretty. I don’t think this little girl really has the right looks for a Model. And I can imagine what an editor would say about her normal, healthy body. But 13-14 is the age a lot of girls start and they are made up rather maturely, that’s not to say its right though.

    Fame and money are so easily attainable for untalented people with the right connections, I don’t know if I can fault them for getting a buck while they can. We really need to look at the public who is driving this crap. I feel so sorry for the young girls of today…

  16. Delta Juliet says:

    LOL @ hellen

  17. Jayna says:

    Average-looking girl. Mouth weak looking and small and no upper lip. She is not model material, not particularly photogenic, and will have a lot of rejection, which isn’t good for a young girl’s self-esteem. Shame on her pimp — uh, I mean, mother for not encouraging her in other endeavors, like school, sports, etc.

  18. Shannon says:

    13 is a normal age for girls to get into modeling. I don’t think it’s healthy, just pointing out that it’s within the norm. Tyra Banks was 13 or 14 when she started out.

  19. Leticia says:

    Jayna, I agree with you.

  20. Mika says:

    Hey, when I was thirteen, I would have been the biggest hobag shank twat in the world if I could have been. I’m not denying that. I couldn’t do that, however, because I was homely, first of all (and this girl certainly isn’t) but more importantly because my Mum would have killed me. I have a good Mum, she wanted me to focus on school and the debating team and my chores. This poor girl doesn’t. She’s going to end up like all my skank classmates who are now golddiggers and professional girlfriends.

  21. Jeri says:

    Kim “bragged online” (aka pimped) Kendalls’ modeling shots as well. Her duty as one of the elders I guess.

  22. Tess says:

    C/B, I appreciate your sentiment regarding not taking shots at a thirteen year-old.

    But, I disagree with you. When she and her family put her out there as a “model” they are the ones offering her up for the inevitable public judgment and comment.

    They’re willing to do it for fame and money. They should be protecting her, but clearly that’s NOT their first priority.

  23. brin says:

    @hellen….Kris is probably kicking herself for not making more Klarissas and Kamillas and raking in even more $$$.

  24. Mandy says:

    I think she’s cute, and it’s good that she doesn’t have “model looks” at her age, or else she’d probably look like she was in her mid-30s by the time she finished high school. And who decides what a model should look like, anyway? There are models out there who aren’t pretty at all–just tall, skinny girls with sharp features.

  25. Bodhi says:

    There isn’t a little 8 year old Kassidye or 3 year old Khrystynah lurking about?

    AHAHAHA!! Brilliantly done hellen!!

    I thought most professional models get into in around 12 or 13, I don’t see how this is any different… Other than the fact that her oldest sister is a brand now :shudder:

    I like the outfit in the 2nd picture

  26. craigc says:

    None of these sisters could EVER be a legitamate model.

    Pretty faces, but TOO STUMPY! and TOO MANLY!

    The young ones are no better looking than average LA teenagers.

    Maybe Mom hires them to “model”???

  27. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    She’s a pretty 13 year old but I have to agree she is not a model.

    Mandy, if you look, most models are not conventionally beautiful, they have slighty odd/off features and have something about their faces that makes you take a second look – Kylie doesn’t have a face like that

    She will make money because of her family, normal rules of modelling will not apply

  28. maya says:

    @Brit – The Kardashian name cannot be that bad that receive TONS of media coverage good or bad. Check this very blog to see how many times a Kardashian was featured on here last week alone. The Jenner girls would not have modeling jobs if it wasn’t for their big sister Kim Kardashian. It’s just the facts.

  29. Glyrics says:

    Holding my true outrage for rumors of her sex tape

  30. di butler says:

    What about these people actually is appealing? I can’t find it.

  31. original kate says:

    “I’m sure ther are many girls who read Jane Austen, ride Horses and would like the affirmation of their attractiveness.”

    @ bronwyn: i’m sure there are, but i was responding to the generalization which stated that ALL girls would like to be models at 13. no, they wouldn’t.

  32. Nudgie says:

    The only one to blame for ALL the Lardassian-Jenner women is Kris – she is living vicariously — and financially — through them. Unfortunately she has bigger balls than Bruce, who lost his either after appearing in “Can’t Stop the Music” or the 1976 Olympics.

    Kourtney must be SO pissed she didn’t have a daughter to whore out….

  33. Camille says:

    @nnn: I agree. Definitely NOT model material.

  34. slymm27 says:

    keep talking and complaining, while they keep raking in the cash, you see life doesnt always play along with the …oh, i am educated, and i am not a famewhore, and i work so hard from 9-5 type of people, and i am struggling to pay my mortgage…and all that bs. Sometimes, its annoying famewhore, sex tape families that are living so large , it pisses you off. So just stop complaining ok. The kardashians are here to stay.

  35. Lizzy says:

    These photos are pretty harmless, but the way these girls are being raised (as evidenced by Keeping Up With The Kardashians) is questionable.

  36. Bitter fruit says:

    God damn how many are there of these attention whores? Is there a production line?

  37. hairball says:

    Jayna: totally agree

    The two girls never had a chance. That world is all they know and they don’t have the looks to fit in it. Is there anything else in life other then being a model??

  38. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think she could be a model – if you notice they are not all drop dead gorgeous – she’s got the height, the right face shape, and huge tilted eyes.

  39. liz says:

    whoah, photoshop.

  40. pam says:

    If i were Khloe, i would walk over to my mother and sisters with a machette and say “don’t even go there bitches”. LOL! I just wish Khloe and Bruce would come out with a show called Bhloe and Kruce finally get a life. God bless them. They are the only reason to watch that mess of a show. Poor Kylie I thought she had at least a little of Khloe’s balls, guess not!!

  41. RHONYC says:

    kris is the ‘mother-of-all-whores’…

    FAMEWHORES, that is.


    i hate to burst kris’ bubble…but those thighs r about to go ‘all-beyoncé’ on that kid (yikes!).

    good luck in ‘milan’.


  42. Ditty Ol' Man says:

    If only she were still eleven.

  43. Anna says:

    Is it just me or are her body proportions all f!#ked up? Her upper body and head look shrunken compared to her lower body.
    Somebody needs to take Intro to Photoshop. Look at the length of her arms compared to the length of her legs??!! F$!king retarded……

  44. Rudy says:

    I think she’s cuter than the 14 year old, but the styling and makeup are all wrong for her. Hopefully someone who styles 13 year old models might help her out next time instead of trying to tart her up like her K whore sisters.

    Also, who told those girls that a big bun on the top of your head is attractive?

  45. SuperSleuth says:

    ROTFL Nudgie! 🙂

  46. kim says:

    not an attractive girl

  47. Javagirl1 says:

    I like her, very cute!

  48. Trippin says:

    Oh my gosh no more Kardashians please. Enough is enough. Thank goodness there’s only 2 Simpson girls and 2 Spears girls.

  49. ragdoll says:

    I agree that Kris is a POS as a mother. Both Kim and Kourtney had sex tapes as teens. And Khloe admits to losing her virginity at 14. All this before it occurred to Mama Jenner that SHE could make more money pimping the girls herself. Dina Lohan and Lynn Spears have nothing on this skank.

  50. slymm27 says:

    there is nothing wrong with her looks, she is a beautifull 13year old girl, she hasnt fully developed. She is going to be tall and gorgeous, stop being mean, and jealous.

  51. Boss says:

    Those Kardashians are only good for spreading their legs on camera, caking on makeup, and being media whores. Hah, bragging about one of them getting an A on a test…first one of them would have to actually develop some brain cells. They’ve never mentioned education on the show, not one of them cares for it. It’s all about clothes, money, and stuff they can buy.

  52. poopie says:

    i want THOSE LACE UP BOOTS ! Does anyone know the brand?

  53. Lola7 says:

    Since she is a Jenner, there is still hope for her. Her father needs to keep her away from the Kardashians sisters before she is out making sex tapes and god knows what else.

  54. Kazoo81 says:

    she could be a runway model—you just have to be skinny, tall, and know how to walk. but for print & ad campaigns, no way. she’ll get them only if the company wants to appeal to kardashian followers.

  55. Jacquie says:

    If you take away the family name because no one seems to like them. She’s a very beautiful little girl.

  56. dahlia47 says:

    It seems like the little sisters feel pressure to start modeling and getting out there in the public eye! I think they should just chill out and be kids.

  57. Dominique says:

    I think she should be bold and graduate from high school then go to college

  58. MIchelle says:

    Kylie is beautiful and its not because of what her last name is. Its because she is naturally beutiful and no one can change that. She looks grown up for her age, but i think she could go far with modeling. What her sisters did should not concern anyone because we all make mistakes. Dont take it out on kylie. Your all just jealous anyway, she is absoulutley stunning and seeing these comments are outrageous.

  59. Katie says:

    i am also 13 years old and i think you people are just plain jealous that she is pretty and has what it takes. just because she isn’t a stick and ultra sharp cheek bones, she is still very photogenic and does have what it takes to be a model. All the kardashians are fine. there HUMANS just like you. if kylie wants to model and well LET HER MODEL!
