Kendall Jenner’s Vogue Shoot Has Dancers Fuming
Kendall Jenner may have just celebrated landing the biggest Vogue cover of the year, but things aren’t all good for her these days — she’s got possible bad blood between her and BFF Gigi Hadid, among other sticky situations. Appearing on a total of five (5!) Vogue covers around the world this fall, one shoot in particular is rubbing dancers the wrong way.
In Spanish Vogue, Kendall did what she usually does: puts on the gorgeous clothes she’s told to, poses this way and that way, and gives the camera a few sultry looks and perhaps one smile. Job done. But this time, her outfit included point shoes and her poses where those of a dancer’s. She tried, but the true ballerinas weren’t having it. At all.
Some were cool with Kendall, just not Kendall doing ballet.
Ok Kendall Jenner you're perf but you standing in those point shows at the bar just pissed off every ballerina, myself included

Every ballerina in the world is cringing so hard over Kendall Jenner's Spanish Vogue shoot.

Others wanted to know why they didn’t prep her.
I don't do ballet, but I can see why people would be pissed. My thing is, if you want Kendall, use her, just put her in a few classes lol. https://t.co/IPngdCFOI0

Some couldn’t care less.
PPL are seriously going off about Kendall Jenner's Vouge pics of her in ballet slippers and not having the right form. GET A HOBBY PEOPLE!

These "pro dancers" are upset at Kendall Jenner's ballet video for Vogue lol. Yeah, let's be all offended for the sake of being offended.

And some were calling it downright appropriation.

Frankly, they wanted to know why a ballerina couldn’t have just been the one to, ya know, do the ballet for the photoshoot.
I'm no dancer but come on Vogue if you wanted to showcase the beauty of ballet, pick a professional not Kendall Jenner

Why did Kendall Jenner do a ballet photo shoot INSTEAD OF AN ACTUAL BALLERINA.
— Kat (@KatherineWoods2) September 20, 2016
Vogue def messed up with Kendall Jenner as a ballerina. There are plenty who have worked their entire lives to be professional ballerinas.

If you want to have a ballerina model for Vogue, GET A REAL BALLERINA, not Kendall Jenner hanging onto the barre for dear life 😡

While others were just, well, terrified by the entire thing.
I studied ballet for 18 years and Kendall's "ballet" video was far scarier to me than Universal Halloween Horror Nights.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
