Kendall Jenner is being accused of 'appropriating' ballet after this Vogue photoshoot

Ah lads.

SO, WHAT ARE we all mad about today then? Oh, Kendall Jenner wearing ballet slippers? OK then.

Lovely moggle Kendall Jenner is featured in this month’s Spanish Vogue as part of a ballet-themed photoshoot.

In a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, she can be seen dancing around in a pair of pointe shoes – and this made people mad.

Most of the critics are annoyed that Vogue didn’t use a real ballerina for the shoot:

Others are more concerned that she’s using pointe shoes incorrectly:

And still others have accused her of ‘appropriating ballet culture’ by copying the look without actually having any training.

Oh dear.

However, it’s not all bad for Kendall – she’s been defended by actual ballet dancer Allison DeBona, who in a post on her Facebook page said she was just doing her job:

…She’s a beautiful young girl whose job is to do what she’s asked to do. Not really sure of the reason behind it except maybe all girls dream of being a ballerina on stage and she’s in her room playing as one?

And other people are just rolling their eyes extremely hard.

Now Kendall, you’re to go straight to your room and never touch a ballet barre again, do you hear us?
