Vogue India faces backlash for featuring Kendall Jenner on 10th anniversary cover

Katrina Kaif looks like sex on a toast in Mario Testino’s

Are we getting to peak Kendall Jenner? Alongside Jenner, the magazine presents an intimate portrayal of Bollywood royalty, Katrina Kaif and Sushant Singh Rajput, along with a collaboration with Indian artists Mithu Sen and Thukral & Tagra.

Mario shared the photograph saying, "TOWEL SERIES 136, SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT".

Reactions to the cover swung between hilarity and outrage.

Kendall Jenner's embroiled in yet another controversy after the release of her "Vogue" India cover.

"If you compare it to her past covers, you look at them and she's definitely (been) bronzed into an Indian face", she said.

"Why not an Indian model, there are so many?"

Vogue India did not respond to HuffPost's request for comment. Just the other day, SSR was shot with Victoria's Secret supermodel for Vogue India's 10th-anniversary issue and, as expected, the pictures went viral from the get-go. The Twitterverse is buzzing with users slamming Vogue for not getting "deserving Indian models" to mark the special occasion of the tenth anniversary.

There were so many options Vogue India could have chosen to put on their cover.

"Different elements of India have influenced my world - and in turn this issue", he explained. It's the people, the art, the colors, the elephants and everything in-between. I would have loved to show her around, but couldn't due to security issues. I wanted it to stay true to the Indian spirit.

Jenner also caught heat for being associated with Ja Rule's failed luxury music festival, Fyre Fest, which reportedly paid the young woman $250,000 for one Instagram post promoting the event before she deleted it. It started with her starring in a now infamously cringeworthy Pepsi ad, where she was shown solving racism and police shootings in America by handing a police officer a can of soda.
