Kendall Jenner may be the second-youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, but she still towers over oldest sister Kourtney.
The 19-year-old model showed off her massive height advantage over her 36-year-old sister in a picture that sister Kim Kardashian shared on Instagram.
In the photo, both Kourtney and Kendall wore white button-down shirts and long dark hair but had massive height differences, leading Kim to facetiously caption the picture “Twins.”
Kourtney and Kendall have both been open about issues with their appearance. Just this week Kourtney responded after longtime boyfriend Scott Disick took some flap for what appeared to be body shaming.
After Scott and Kourtney took the kids to Mexico for a beachside vacation — one in which Kourtney showed off her amazing post-baby weight loss in a bikini — Scott still took to Instagram to post a picture of Kourtney from five years ago, when she had a much smaller frame.
Kourtney appeared to take it in stride, posting a picture of herself in workout gear and talking about all the time she’s putting in to stay in shape.
“So after a fun vacation, it’s time to get back on track. NEED to start back hard core in the gym and start my @lyfe_tea teatox today!! Ready for that boost in metabolism!”
And even though Kendall is a rising star in the modeling world, she too has been open about her issues with body image, including her battle with acne.
“I still have a hard time looking at someone when I’m talking to them, and I get nervous,” Kendall told Allure magazine. “When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out. It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself.”
Other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been just as open, including youngest sister Kylie Jenner, who after denying having work done on her lips finally broke down and admitted she gets temporary lip fillers.
As for the reason Kendall Jenner towers over sister Kourtney Kardashian, it may come down to simple genetics. While both girls share the same mom — the 5-foot-6 Kris Jenner — they get some differing height genes from their fathers. Kourtney’s dad was the late Robert Kardashian, the famous lawyer who measured in at 5-foot-5. Kendall’s dad is former Olympic hero Bruce Jenner, who is 6-foot-3.
But Kendall Jenner doesn’t exactly tower over Kourtney Kardashian as much as the picture would imply. Kendall wore high heels for the photo, while Kourtney was standing in her bare feet.
