Kendall Jenner proved that she has what it takes to make it in the modeling world on this season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and now, Kim Kardashian‘s leggy little sis is enjoying the fruits of her hard labor with yet another new campaign. Jenner was just announced as the face of Australian swimwear designer Leah Madden’s summer 2012 campaign, titled “Pirouette.”

Kardashian made the announcement on her website this week, sharing a behind-the-scenes shot of Jenner modeling some high-waisted bikini bottoms and a bandeau top from the line. “How stunning does she look!?!?” Kardashian wrote. “I couldn’t be more proud!!!!” This marks Jenner’s second foray into the world of swimsuit modeling: last summer, she posed for some sexy photos in Malibu that ended up causing a bit of controversy.

Tell us: What do you think of Jenner as the new face of Leah Madden?

Even though I am all for youth making there way in the world, that girl seems way too young to be modeling swimwear. Parents should not support this type of endeavor this early on in life.

Ho Hum another Kardashian/Jenner thing. I am soooo amused by the stories. Why dosen’t Bruce Jenner change his name to Bruce Kardashian so he and his Kids and his wife can all have the same last names.

Kendall is a very pretty girl but she really needs to eat more. In my opinion, Kendall is way too young to be posing for Bikini shoots. She should just stick to modeling clothes suitable for her age.

Kendall is a beautiful girl. She does look like a model and I can only imagine how great she feels about herself. Im sure living in the shadows of her three eldest sisters isnt easy. Now, she can have her own success and not just be know and Kim, Khloe,or Kourtney’s little sister. Congratulations Kendall and Good Luck!

I don’t know why, with a father who is an Olympian Gold Winning athlete, that the 2 Jenner daughters did not go into competitive sports. They have bodies that would have been perfect to develop into athletes…..I wonder if Bruce tried to get them into sports and they declined….or maybe he didnt even ask them…Anyway just wondering.

Is Brody Jenner related to them too? How old is this newest Kardashian? Y’know, I’m a bit disappointed and annoyed with the media, publicists, and talent agents alike….The work for a model has become less…why does a name have to be tied to any product to make it a success…honestly, if I weren’t told that Kendall Jenner was the new face for this swimwear campaign I wouldn’t know since I don’t follow the Kardashians, but c’mon…let a real model put the swimsuit on and leave the celebrity out of the mix…I feel sorry for we people in the industry that can’t get decent work because a celebrity has their yaps tied all around it.

I really don’t understand how any woman can say this young girl looks like a model. She looks very underweight, has no curves (required to look good as a swimsuit model!) and this shot is totally unflattering. I struggle with my own daughter who is this age and all of her friends who see girls like this and then think they’re fat because she looks like a skeleton with skin. Kris Jenner is a media hog and has sold out her children for fame.

Very pretty girl, but too skinny to look good. She is so young, she needs to eat more.

She’s not really skinny. Maybe you think that off of this pic, even though here also she doesn’t look that skinny. She’s normal for her age, and it’s probably not gonna last. For a 14 year old, she’s already getting some curves, and judging by her sisters, she’s gonna be much bigger in another 3-5 years. So she might as well do as much serious modeling now before her weight is too high for it. Yes, you have to be really skinny to model, no, it doesn’t have to unhealthy, some people are naturally very skinny and tall, it only becomes a problem when bigger girls want to do it too.
