So, American model Kendall Jenner appeared on the May issue of Vogue India that celebrates the magazine's tenth anniversary, and people couldn't hold their own.
They oscillated between displeased or angry to humored or wowed as Jendall's pictures, shot by celebrity fashion photographer Mario Testino, started surfacing online.
While she makes a solo appearance on the cover, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput is seen giving her company in the inside pages.
Shot in the royal backdrop of Jaipur's Sambodhe Palace, Jenner stuns in a lacy Saint Laurent outfit. This isn't her first international cover for Vogue, though, but perhaps the most talked about until now.
Some have touted Jenner's presence on the cover as "cultural hegemony" and are dissing Vogue for not getting "deserving Indian models" to mark the occasion.
One user wrote on Instagram: "Vogue perfected putting a white woman who has no care for country or culture."
Another tweeted, "Why is Kendall Jenner on the cover of Vogue India when India literally has some of the prettiest models?"
Commenting on her weird poses, one user wrote, "Finally revealed: Kendall Jenner had come to India for her lower back pain treatment."
Here are some of the reactions.
Vogue India: we've completed 10 years in India!
Vogue India: we need to celebrate India!
Vogue India: let's put Kendall Jenner on the cover!

I am utterly disappointed in this Vogue India anniversary cover. There are so many deserving Indian models that should've got it. http://pic.twitter.com/GvVp0jxazq

People who got upset with @VOGUEIndia taking Kendall Jenner are the same people who got happy to see Baywatch taking Priyanka Chopra.
