Reality star Kendall Jenner dressed up as a cowgirl for this Halloween as she wore an outfit featuring ‘Jessie’ from Toy Story but faced backlash. However, instead of a kids-friendly version, Jenner wore a more revealing outfit.
The 26-year-old wore a large red hat, Western-style cropped shirt, cow-printed chaps and denim briefs. She captioned a series of photos of her look with a quote from the Pixar character: “Well aren’t you just the sweetest space toy.”
Unfortunately, some netizens were not as sweet with their comments.
“It’s a kids movie WHY?!?” one person asked. Another said, “Oh now we’re sexualizing Kids animations Ayy?” while multiple commenters told the model she “ruined” the children’s movie.
“This is a lot for my childhood memories to process,” a commenter quipped, while another said, “Let’s take a classic kids movie and make it look like a XXX movie not right at all.”
Despite the backlash from Pixar purists, lots of Jenner’s famous friends gave the costume their stamp of approval.
Gigi Hadid called the outfit “So good!” while Khloé Kardashian commented, “Awwwwwwwwww my baby.”
After posing for her official photoshoot, Jenner’s Jessie slipped into something a little more comfortable, swapping her crop top for a bandeau bra. Khloé dubbed her the “Sexiest Jesse I’ve ever met,” while Addison Rae called the look “hot.”
Kendall wasn’t the only one in her family to choose a movie-inspired costume; Kim Kardashian wore a latex catsuit and blue body paint to transform into “X-Men” superhero Mystique, while Kylie Jenner went full “Bride of Frankenstein” before channeling “Mistress of the Dark” Elvira.
Newlyweds Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, meanwhile, got all dolled up as Tiffany and Chucky from “Bride of Chucky.”
Jenner has a whopping 262 million Instagram followers. Noting the skin-baring nature of the costume, many pointed out that the Toy Story movies are aimed at a younger audience of aged five and upwards.
‘Why sexualise a character that is for children?? Seriously, why??’ wrote one confused Instagram user.
‘This is ridiculous. It’s Halloween and you’re just sexualising a child’s character,’ wrote another.
While one other commenter described the look as ‘hella disrespectful’.
She donned the costume for a dress-up Halloween party in Los Angeles on Saturday evening, heading out with her sister Kylie – who went for a Bride of Frankenstein costume.
