Kendall Jenner Slammed When People Discover What She's Getting

Has another decade passed us by already? Ten years certainly has, but decades are typically measured in specific 10-year increments. For example, the 1960’s would be considered a full decade, as would the 1990’s. That makes it a little confusing as to why a ‘Fashion Icon of the Decade’ award would be handed out in the year 2017. However, that’s exactly what’s going to happen during next month's New York Fashion Week as part of the Daily Front Row’s 2017 Fashion Media Awards. Even more curiously, the chosen recipient was only 11-years-old when the ‘decade’ she’s being honored for began.

As the Daily Mail shares, reality star Kendall Jenner is slated to receive the award at the ceremony, and many users are having a hard time wrapping their heads around that fact.

“Following the announcement honoring the 5ft10 catwalk star, whose parents are Caitlyn and Kris Jenner, there was some skepticism about the selection, with many Twitter users posting memes illustrating their shock and disagreement,” the Mail reports.

While Kendall does always seem to have her pulse on the trends, an award of this magnitude is coming across as a gigantic reach. Fashionista of the Year? Maybe. Icon of the decade? That’s a little much, especially when you consider the age of the recipient in question. While awards shows in general are no strangers to questionable decisions, this one is coming across as particularly head scratching.

“Girl poses with the same old boring face, didn't even do 10 diverse photo shoots & y'all giving her "Fashion Icon Of The decade" .... Tragic,” shared one user.

“decade???? she was 11 a decade ago??? have you SEEN what the kardashians were wearing 10 years ago???” added another commenter.

“I’m sorry is Rihanna dead? did she die and no one told me? why is she receiving this?” wrote another commenter.

No word on what the criteria are for the ‘Decade’ award, but there are a ton of inquiring minds out there that would love to know. Unfortunately for Kendall, she’s the victim of some bad decision making by the show’s producers, who seem to be going out of their way to get ‘name’ recognition. After all, Kendall has an enormous following on social media, and we would assume that producers were hoping for that to translate into interest for the show.

It may, but what about all the folks that might be turned off by such an unusual decision? That’s a tough balancing act, and it appears as if that question slipped through the cracks. Now that it’s already been announced and touted, it’s going to be impossible to ask for a ‘do-over’ without some further embarrassment on all sides. In the grand scheme of things, this will blow over before too long - but perhaps it can serve as a valuable lesson for future awards shows.
If you’re unable to determine when your decisions are patently ridiculous, it’s about time for you to bring more people in the loop before sharing your ideas with the world.
