How many topical pop culture references can you cram into one photo? Try three or four. One this week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model, Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner will pose alongside the show’s competitors in a David LaChapelle-esque shoot inspired by Toddlers & Tiaras. Tired yet?
The Daily Mail reports that Kendall and Kylie are using the opportunity — no doubt cooked up by their momager Kris — to further stake their claim on the modeling industry. The two pose wearing identical outfits (black dresses, white knee socks, black heels and pigtails) looking sort of like those creepy twins from The Shining, while their mother points at a blackboard wearing that Pucci dress she and Alexa Chung both wore within 24 hours of each other last year. The contestants stand out by pretending to be toddlers rolling around on the ground in a technicolor playroom filled with all kinds of fun kiddie toys. And also there’s a really creepy gap-toothed clown standing in the background of every shot.
Of course if Top Model really wanted to do a cool Toddlers-themed episode, they could dramatize what it looks like backstage at a kiddie pageant and have June Thompson (Alana “Honey Boo Boo Child”‘s mother) flown in to dole out Go Go Juice and apply lace-front wigs on all the contestants. But hey, we’re not the ones running the show, are we?
Check out some photos from the shoot below and tell us if you’ll tune in to this week’s episode.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
