Not even two monumentally disastrous associations (let’s hear it for Pepsi and Frye Fest) have taken one of the titans of social media down. Even though she’s received plenty of flack for her part in these aforementioned messes, Kendall Jenner appears unbothered, despite what would send most crumbling to the floor. Or at least wavering with so much as a sheepish grimace.
After gliding over the red carpet at Monday’s MET Gala, parading around in what’s been deemed her most revealing outfit to date, a barely there La Perla sheer concoction displaying her derriere in all its glory, Jenner now appears on the May 2017 cover of Vogue India, posing alongside 31-year-old Bollywood megastar Sushant Singh Rajput.

Considering Bollywood stars are frequently recipients of the same extraordinary levels of fandom as Jenner, this makes for a logical pairing. While the Vogue India shoot took place months ago, the timing of the release is certainly helpful in keeping Jenner’s spotlight on the positive.
Alongside the other celebrities, musicians, models, online influencers, all in hot water for promoting Frye Fest, Jenner has erased her association to the ill-fated festival, actively distracting rather than addressing addressing, by way of topless photos and going about her scheduled activities.
While avoidance isn’t exactly the most gracious move, the Kardashian and Jenner crew are well-versed in crisis management. The question is: Can you keep up with her – and do you want to?
