It looks like having a supermodel sister and a rockstar brother-in-law has seriously paid off for Kylie Jenner: The 17-year-old reality star is—wait for it—in a new Balmain ad. Let that sink in. Okay moving on.
Olivier Rousteing tapped sisters Kendall and Kylie for his Fall 2015 campaign, and decided it would be totally stylish and super-sexy to suggest that they’re about to kiss. Sigh.
“A celebration of the unique and unconditional love of siblings,” is how Rousteing describes the campaign, reported Women’s Wear Daily which was shot by Mario Sorrenti and will appear this August in Vogue and Love’s fall-winter issue. We don’t know about you, but we love our sisters and brothers unconditionally, but don’t often attempt to make out with them while wearing beaded gowns. Yeah, yeah, sex sells, we get it.
We get it so much, that we’re not really flinching. After all, tabloid-generating sisters have to have a sexual relationship to sell clothes: Just last month the Jenner girls’ BFFs and fellow Instagam stars Gigi and Bella Hadid also got too close for comfort in V magazine, and will also appear together in the same Balmain campaign as Kendall and Kylie, as will siblings Joan and Erika Smalls, and for the men’s campaign, Armando and Fernando Cabral, reported WWD.
It’s not so much the sisters kissing that might irk hard-core fashion fans, but rather the fact that Kylie Jenner, who has—let’s be real, become something of a caricature—is starring in an ad for one one the most celebrated high-fashion labels on the planet.
