Kendall Jenner’s Golden Globes Acne Leads Today’s Star Sightings
No one’s going to stop Kendall Jenner from having a good time.
While she wasn’t nominated or presenting at this year’s 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, the 22-year-old reality star nonetheless found herself at the star-studded affair Sunday night, sipping on Moet & Chandon champagne while mingling with other A-listers. Adhering to the encouraged all-black dress code, the model stunned in a Giambattista Valli Couture gown as she sashayed down the red carpet.
Though she was there for Vogue to support working women and pay her respects to the #TimesUp Movement, which was founded to combat sexual harassment and gender inequality in the workplace, some internet trolls unfortunately used the opportunity to poke fun of her visible acne marks instead.
One person tweeted, “Kendall jenner has had acne all her life and that’s fine. But her face looks so rough and you cant call that a model..”
“Kendall Jenner stepped out on that red carpet with some acne and textured skin so we wouldn’t talk about her lips,” another quipped, referencing the starlet’s noticeably plumper pout.
However, Kendall quickly clapped back at the negative criticisms. When a fan praised her for “showing up and strutting her acne while looking like a gorgeous star,” she replied, “Never let that sh*t stop you!”
“I had such bad acne when I was younger. It completely ruined my self-esteem — I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face,” she wrote in 2015 on her now-defunct app. “Even after things started to clear up, it took a solid amount of time to be okay with my skin and gain back my confidence. Still, with one zit, I’m a little bit self-conscious. But slowly, I’m working towards not caring and I’m just in so much of a better place about it all now that I’m older.”
She added, “I realized that it’s a part of life for some people and it doesn’t define who you are.”
