Kylie Jenner Twerked in Vans, Then Kendall Outperforms Her at Art Basel Party

A woman’s twerk is never done — just look to Kendall Jenner, who after filming the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday in Paris showed no sign of fatigue on Friday in Miami when she hit the dance floor in her favorite Celine shoes.

The busy supermodel outmaneuvered her sister Kylie when she displayed her mastery of twerking at E11ven Miami nightclub during Art Basel, an annual art and fashion showcase that attracts a haul of stars.


No doubt Kendall’s comfortable Celine slip-on shoes eased the burden on her feet when she perched her bottom on Kylie’s lap and began performing the dance moves — gyrating in a gold sequins Vatanika skirt.

A companion of the sisters is heard cheering them on in a Snapchat video, which was shared on Kendall’s account.


The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality stars were at the nightclub in support of Kylie’s boyfriend Tyga’s guest appearance. Kylie and the rapper coordinated their footwear for the night — both wearing black Vans Old Skool sneakers.

Ahead of their arrival, Kylie shared on her Snapchat account a group photo that included Tyga and another friend showing off their matching skate-inspired sneakers, which feature the brand’s signature curved stripes and suede trim; the kicks retail for $59.95 online.

Kylie certainly gained some wisdom in the finer points in twerking, as her attempt earlier in the night was met with some jeers from observers who weren’t impressed with her moves.


The E! fixture teamed her Vans shoes with a slinky Sorella dress and performed the dance while attempting another talent: singing.

“If the body looks good, who cares?” the Puma ambassador crooned while twerking in an elevator.
