Kim Kardashian had some stern words of advice for half-sibling, Kylie Jenner, in the preview for Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
In a sneak peek at Sunday’s upcoming episode, Kim warns her 18-year-old sister not only to stop acting like a diva during photo-shoots, but also pressures Kylie to be “perfect” for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 at the New York Fashion Show, according to Mirror. More than anything, it is clear from the preview, Kim was trying to prepare Kylie for her second modeling stint on the Yeezy runway.
Kylie had previously modeled for the 38-year-old rapper’s Yeezy Season 1 presentation on February 12 of last year, which Anna Wintour attended, according to Mail Online.
And although Kim appeared to admit that Kylie had what it takes to model for her hubby for the second time running, the reality star also said that she had a few reservations about her younger sibling’s antics. Speaking in a confessional, Kim Kardashian suggested that Kylie Jenner had the “unique, cool” looks perfect for modeling, but lacked the temperament of a professional.
“I’ve been hearing things like, ‘Kylie makes people wait because she’s on her phone,’ or if she’s at photo-shoots she brings a ton of friends,” Kim tells the camera, obviously worried that her pampered sister might take too much for granted. Kim admits to being “nervous” because of the rumors flying about Kylie’s lack of professionalism.
“So I just want Kylie to know just because Kanye is family, like, this isn’t a casual situation,” Kim says.
“She has to be really professional and go with the flow.”
Later, when she finally gets to voice her worries directly to Kylie Jenner in the episode, Kim Kardashian appears all the more worried because of Kylie’s apparent lack of attention. In fact, Kylie appears hooked to her phone rather than trying to listen to what her sister is saying. In any case, that does not stop Kim from speaking her mind out.
“You know, [Kanye]’s like, such a perfectionist obviously and this is a really big deal, to do a second show. His first show did so well, you know, the second it’s like — even that much more pressure,” Kim tells Kylie while the latter is busy with her phone.
“So I just want it to be perfect,” Kim adds. “It’ll be so much fun and I want you to like, be profesh.”
All this while, Kylie Jenner keeps texting on her phone, apparently oblivious of what Kim is telling her. But she tries to reassure her sister nonetheless, quickly adding, “No, I will, I’m so excited.”
Of course, this episode of the show must have been shot just prior to the Yeezy second 2 at the New York Fashion Week, which took place back in September. Kim Kardashian sat in front row beside Beyoncé as Jenner strutted down the Skylight Modern runway rocking Adidas Yeezy on September 16.
“With no statement pieces to speak of, this was a collection so low-key that it prompted scores of memes comparing Yeezy’s latest venture to the garb worn by Jedi Knights and/or extras from The Walking Dead.”
While Cathy Horyn, one of fashion’s most respected critics, said Kanye cannot be seriously taken as a designer.
“This second round of drab, broken-down basics proved he can’t be taken seriously as a designer.”
Anyway, as low-key and unappealing Kanye West’s designs might have been, Kylie Jenner still managed to be “perfect” during the show. Kim Kardashian ought to be proud of that.
