Kris Jenner Defends Daughter Kendall's Nearly-Naked Photo Shoot: 'She Has the Perfect Body'

06/06/2014 at 11:46 AM ET

Kendall Jenner’s topless photos for Interview magazine have elicited some strong opinions from PEOPLE readers (53 percent found the shoot too provocative). Yes, the newbie model is 18, but is she jumping into things too fast? Are some of her spreads too mature? Momager Kris Jenner doesn’t think so.

“She’s a model and that’s really her profession,” Jenner told Huffington Post during a live interview Thursday. “Doesn’t she look great? Some people are like ‘She poses topless.’ She’s a model. That’s her profession. It comes with the territory.”

Stage mom Jenner also expressed that Kendall’s figure is the key to her success in the industry so far. “She has like, the perfect body, especially one that wants to be in the modeling business,” she explained. “I don’t know, I got a lot of curves and I couldn’t pull that off. But she always looks remarkable.”

In the shoot (above), Kendall ditches most of her clothes and shields her bare chest with her arms. She shared during the interview that being on the runway and posing for high-fashion spreads has always been her dream.

“To be honest, this is exactly what I wanted to be,” she said. “I was always looking up to supermodels. They were, like, my superheroes,” adding that without her mom and dad Bruce Jenner’s support she wouldn’t be where she is now: “My parents brought up Kylie and me to be workaholics. That’s something I really appreciate.”

I actually find it very sad that the only thing Kris Jenner ever seems to compliment her children on is their appearance. Nothing about Kendall being kind, intelligent, having some tangible skill. Just that she’s hot with a perfect body.

So first I would like to say I am in no way, shape or form a fan of the Kardashians. I think they all ride off the coat tails of Kim who only gained celebrity after her sex tape. as for Kendall she is very pretty girl who actaully does look like a model. I think that would have happened for her regardless of Kardashian fame because of who her father is. Now while Kris Jenner may act as her childrens “pimp”.. she is a very smart business woman and whether morally right or not she is a component of her children’s success

She didn’t show her breast. So really these pics are nothing compared to what some young ladies wear everyday.
It’s great her Mother is her agent. She won’t be taken advantage of by some.

OAN: Those shoes in the bottom picture are fierce.

This family is obsessed with branding themselves. Nothing wrong with making a living but when you get your butt into every avenue doesn’t leave room for others that really could use the work. Kendall is probably Kris’s dream daughter. Kourtney and Kim although pretty are very short. Khloe is too tall and big. Kylie just doesn’t have a great look thats marketable, but Kendall has it all. I feel bad for Kylie because she will spend her life chasing after Kendall and not be able to catch up. Therefore she will look to other outlets to get attention. I think it’s happening already.

2 things…1-SHE”S A MINOR!!!! and 2- shame on her mother for allowing her minor daughter to portray herself this way! She may have “the perfect body” according to her mother, but she’s also setting her daughter up for more issues she shouldn’t be involved in. She looks like a prostitute….
