Cha Miñoza

Kendall Jenner flaunted her jaw-dropping figure in a barely-there dress but quickly drew criticism from followers, who likened the frock to "tattered cloth".

The 26-year-old model shared photos of her look as she announced the latest Kendall x Kylie collection to her 231 million Instagram followers, posing alongside sister Kylie Jenner, who was wearing a similar-looking piece.

Kendall And Kylie Rock Barely-There Dresses

To announce the launch of their new makeup collaboration, the Jenner sisters posed together, both wearing revealing lace dresses with a unique distressed design.

Kendall shared photos from their shoot on her account and revealed the good news to her followers. The barely-there dresses featured a soft, ethereal look, with lavender-colored lace fabric to match the garden-themed aesthetic of their new collection, which includes an eye palette, a cheek palette, lip crayons, and a lip gloss.

High Fashion Or Trashy?

While the two looked incredible fronting their famous curves in the frocks, there were a few fans who didn't like the gowns. Kylie posted a behind-the-scenes look at their shoot on her Insta and people in the comment section were on the fence over how to feel about these "tattered" dresses.

"I love y’all but these are hideous, looks like tattered cloth or you got attacked by dogs," a fan wrote down.

"Looks like old ripped up kitchen towels thrown together like cro magnon days," another one said.

"Anyone else think they look like they're wearing torn up trash bags???😂," wrote another follower.

How The Dress Was Made

While not everyone was pleased with the dress, designer Haixi Ren was pretty proud of her custom creation. The Chinese-born NY-based fashion designer spoke to Vogue, detailing the process of how she made the dresses.

“I decided to use multiple hues of lavender to create a depth of textile,” Ren explained. “I wanted to create cut-out gowns for the girls that enhance their beautiful physiques. A majority of [my] pieces are done by hand and are 100 per cent zero waste.”

Unique And Eco-Conscious

It's not the first time that the Jenners modeled a REN dress. Last year, Kylie also wore a REN bodysuit for the relaunch of her makeup brand, KYLIE Cosmetics.

Ren specializes in doing handmade made-to-measure pieces which are sustainable and inclusive. Although not for everyone, REN pieces are amazingly unique and also eco-conscious.

“Fashion has a lot of systemic problems, so I’m trying to create our own unique production and selling methods, which would allow us to always stay as close to zero waste as possible,” the designer said in her interview.
