We're all kinds of obsessed with Gigi Hadid's latest fashion campaign for Tommy Hilfiger this week, but it's her BFF Kendall Jenner's newest modelling gig which has landed most of the attention - and not necessarily for the right reasons.

On Wednesday it was announced that Kenny J would be the face of Mango's newest collection for spring 2016, but many fashion fans are confused as to why she's been chosen to front a collection called 'Tribal spirit'.

Kendall's the first of four different models and themes that Mango will be featuring throughout their new season, and her particular fashion collection has been inspired by the culture and history of the African Savanna.

Mango have revealed that the range will include pieces such as a tribal print dress and a leather fringe mini which have all taken inspiration from Africa, so many people strongly believe that it should have been modelled by women of colour.

The comments on Kendall's Instagram have blown up since the big reveal, with one fan summing it all up by asking: "Why is a white girl modelling African-themed clothes?"

Another wrote: "I bet the WoC in modelling are thrilled Kendall Jenner will Star in Mango's 'Tribal Spirit'" and um, they definitely do have a point. There's thousands of beautiful women of colour in the business, or models actually from Africa that would have suited the collection just as much as Kendall does. 

Maybe her Instagram follower count and being part of the world's most famous family helps a bit though?

What do you think about the controversy Kendall and Mango have caused? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
