Kendall Jenner named Fashion Icon of the Decade

"10 years ago she was 11 years old!"

Kendall Jenner is to be named Fashion Icon of the Decade at New York Fashion Week next month.

The 21-year-old model is set to be honoured with the accolade as part of the Daily Front Row’s 2017 Fashion Media Awards, Fashion Week Daily reported on Tuesday.

Jenner will receive the honor on 8th September at the high-profile award show, which will be hosted by fellow supermodel Ashley Graham.

While many fans of the model took to social media to congratulate the star on the illustrious honour, others weren't convinced that she fully deserved it.

Following the announcement, Internet users were quick to suggest other figures who were perhaps more worthy of the award - namely, Rihanna.

"Excuse me but how did Kendall Jenner win fashion icon of the decade when Rihanna exists?" said one.

Others also suggested Jenener should have taken a backseat to her rumoured love interest, rapper A$AP Rocky.

"How did kendall jenner get fashion icon of the decade my mans asap rocky got robbed" said another.

Kendall is yet to respond to the controversy.

Meanwhile, the half-sister of Kim Kardashian has recently been faced with more cultural appropriation claims after dropping a new range of clothing.

Kendall, along with her sister Kylie, have been accused of appropriating ‘Chola culture’ and are being labelled as “culture vultures”.

Back in June, the pair faced more drama following their superimposing their own faces over Tupac and Biggie on a range of 'vintage' tees.
