Kylie Jenner’s only just turned 18 and she’s already posing in racy snaps shot by controversial photographer Terry Richardson.
But then again, as the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been posting pics of herself in skimpy bikinis on Instagram for the last few years, it’s not even remotely surprising.

Kylie shared a couple of snaps from the photoshoot, which appears in Galoremagazine this month, on social media and let’s just say they’re not exactly tasteful. The 18-year-old’s nips are barely covered in the magazine’s cover shot and another shows her giving readers a cheeky glimpse of her lacy pants.
In another, she’s wearing only a white bra and Moschino pants, with a shaggy wool jacket that isn’t doing anything to preserve her modesty.
She looks scarily similar to Kim – who did her July Rolling Stones magazine cover with Richardson behind the lens. In one look, Kylie even wears the same black and gold striped lurex knit Balmain trousers her older sister wore in Cannes in June.

Kylie says in the magazine’s accompanying interview that she doesn’t understand why people are concerned that she acts older than her years.
“It just makes no sense that, even a month ago, people were complaining that I was too young to be doing certain things, and now people are just okay with it because I’m grown,” she says. “I don’t know why that one day made such a difference, but it really does change things for people.”
What we want to know is when these same old ‘fashion’ shoots of semi-nude, barely legal girls taken by Richardson will come to an end? It’s not like Kylie looks amazing in any of these new snapshots – she looks far more beautiful when she’s dripping in designer clobber on the red carpet or fresh faced while out and about with her friends.

Why do girls need to be bursting out of their bras in these shoots? If you’re going to do a lingerie shoot, there are far more tasteful ways to do it.
Of course, Richardson is known for being ‘edgy’ – but there’s a difference between being controversial and plain creepy. After all, this is the man who one model said suggested she touch his dick – and take out her tampon for him to play with.
“This man has built his business/pleasure empire on breaking the cardinal rule of asking a young girl you don’t know to come over to your house and hang out naked: don’t be a fucking creep,” Jamie Peck, 19 at the time, told The Gloss.
But sadly, this style of fashion shoot probably won’t stop anytime soon – not when there are globally famous girls like Kim and Kylie who are willing to pose for them.
