Too cheeky for Anna Wintour? Kendall Jenner shares a swimsuit picture that didn't make the cut for her Vogue September
To explosive fanfare and furious debate, Kendall Jenner covered the September issue of American Vogue this year.
And on Tuesday, she showed her Instagram followers a bit of what Anna Wintour declined to run.
The 20-year-old posted a sultry shot of herself in a black one-piece, revealing it was one of the photos that wound up being overlooked by the magazine.

Her tousled hair falling over half her face, the reality star gave a smouldering stare to the camera, pulling up the side of the swimsuit to flash a bit of her sculpted derrière.
The caption read simply: 'unpublished by @mertalas + @macpiggott'. Those handles belong to Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott, the legendary duo of fashion photographers who ran Kendall's photoshoot.
Their prodigious ledger includes - to pluck at random from just their Vogue Paris covers - Gigi Hadid, Kate Moss, Marion Cotillard and Vanessa Paradis.

This newly unveiled Vogue photo comes on the heels of her cover for the fashion bible's October issue in Japan. Released Monday, the photo by Luigi Mureno and Iango Henzi shows her in Balenciaga's Fall 2016 collection from head to toe.
Her hair in severe braided pigtails, Kylie Jenner's elder sister half-zipped a leather biker jacket over a dishevelled salmon blouse and pink gingham skirt.
Meanwhile, for her American Vogue cover, Mert and Marcus threw her hair over her face again. She held the top of her richly patterned matador outfit open, baring a bit of cleavage and her enviably flat midriff.

The expansive and frequently dishy interview therein included revelations about her father, Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce.
Before the public transition, Kendall confided, she and Kylie once 'thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found those squishy boob things. We found wigs. And then one time I actually ran into her. In this house. She had no idea.'
Kris Jenner's penultimate daughter explained: 'She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce—take us to school, totally normal.'
In a particularly jarring stroke, Kendall said: 'My mom knew. She knew since their third date.' At which point, Kris Jenner burst into the room with brownies.
