LONG legs glistening up to a tiny waist and a bikini line that seemed smoother than a baby’s bottom.
Kendall Jenner looked unreal when modelling for sister Kim Kardashian’s latest Skims collection.
But as the images went viral, there were claims they’d been edited and likening her “unrealistic” figure to a Barbie doll’s.
Yasmin Harisha, who is the same age as Kendall, slips into a red bikini to show digital trickery can turn any 25-year-old into a model, as celebrity photographer Lancton transforms her.
She then gives her verdict.
I HAVE always admired the look of the Jenners and Kardashians while scrolling through Instagram. They certainly brush up well.
Their svelte figures with curves in all the right places, flawless skin and superbly round bottoms with no cellulite in sight have always been an inspiration to me.
So when it came to transforming into Kendall, I jumped at the chance. But it turned out to be a real eye-opener.
Getting the courage to stand in a bikini in front of a camera was enough of a struggle. I’m not usually one to post bikini selfies and the like on social media.
But I got into the swing of it and when I saw the photos after the shoot, I felt quite confident about myself.
I felt empowered about what I was doing – putting myself out there and representing all the other women who may not have naturally super-slender and smoothed-out bodies.
But seeing the highly edited pictures the following day just made me want to bury my head into a pillow.
I’m a healthy size 10 and the same age as Kendall. But realistically, how would I ever achieve this figure?
The “after” pictures look amazing and so perfect.
And as much as I know I shouldn’t buy into the fakeness of it all, seeing them made me want to book myself in for some cosmetic tweakments.
Maybe a little tummy tuck, a slight lift on my boobs and some tweaking around my neck would do the trick.
That’s what I started to think while looking at the edited pictures, before snapping myself out of it.
