Victoria’s Secret Model Kendall Jenner Celebrates Birthday, VS Fashion Show, And 40M Followers By Flashing Nipple On Instagram

Victoria’s Secret Model Kendall Jenner celebrated her 20th birthday on November 3, 2015, along with being in the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and reaching the 40 million mark in Twitter followers, by flashing her nipple on Instagram. Already holding the record for Instagram’s most liked photo of all time, according to Refinery 29, she appears to be banking on her risqué snapshot to snag one million more followers to catch up with younger sister Kylie Jenner, 18.

E! News reported Kendall Jenner as definitely in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show scheduled for primetime by CBS on December 8. The lingerie line will suit Jenner’s penchant for exposing her assets as she struts on the catwalk along with fellow brunette and best friend Gigi Hadid, 20.

She has reportedly been trying to let go of her father, once Bruce Jenner, now renamed Caitlyn Jenner. According to People, Kendall Jenner spoke of her father’s transition from man to woman.

“I feel like it’s a process. It’s something to get used to, for sure…. It’s also a letting-go thing. It’s like when you officially meet her, it’s like, he’s gone. I think that’s what I’m holding on to.”

Bruce Jenner, now 66, enjoys the unofficial title of “world’s greatest athlete” from three successive decathlon world records, starting with his winning the 1976 Olympic title. As a television personality, author, and businessman, Jenner sired six children in the course of his marriages to Chrystie Crownover, Linda Thompson, and Kris Jenner. His divorce from Kris went final on March 23, 2015, and he announced his gender identification to that of a transwoman in a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer on April 24, 2015. A July 2015 Vanity Fair story published his name change from Bruce to Caitlyn, giving the celebrated athlete the worldwide distinction of being an openly transgender person.

While the Victoria’s Secret model’s father has undergone cosmetic surgery, no sex reassignment surgery has taken place, making his life as a woman primarily a mental state and lifestyle. Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner claims to remain sexually attracted to women, not men.

Throughout this bizarre family situation, People reports that Jenner finds herself caught in a tug-of-war between her parents. In Season 11 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall complained that her parents put her and her sibling Kylie in a tough spot, having to choose between them.

The dysfunction has been reflected by Kendall Jenner’s venting on her mother. According to Elle, the Victoria’s Secret model has complained that her mother spending time at clubs was not age appropriate. In an exchange with her mother, Kendall Jenner remarked under her breath “Desperate f**king whore” in an episode of the reality show.

After first stepping into the limelight in Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall Jenner has engaged in public displays, including the risqué gesture on Instagram to get a reaction from her massive following. Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show provides a fitting venue for her needs.

She says she tries to avoid reading what people say about her because she could get a million comments about how beautiful she looks and how awesome she is, but “the one comment that says they hate you and you’re ugly is the one that sticks.”

Her declared long-term goal is to be one of the great supermodels. The Victoria’s Secret model looks up to supermodel Christy Turlington, who is still doing her craft at 46 and “still killing it.”
