Kris Jenner has come to the defense of her daughter Kendall Jenner after backlash over the 18-year-old's topless photo shoot with Interview magazine.

The matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan told the Huffington Post in an interview: “Doesn't she look great? Some people are like ‘She poses topless.’ She’s a model. That’s really her profession. She's really good at what she does.”

"She has like, the perfect body, especially one that wants to be in the modeling business," she said. "I don't know, I got a lot of curves and I couldn't pull that off. But she always looks remarkable."

In the newest issue of Interview, Kendall poses in a couple of provocative black and white shots with her arms or hands covering her topless chest. Kendall admits to being a workaholic as a result of her upbringing by Bruce and Kris Jenner.

"My parents brought up Kylie and me to be workaholics. That's something I really appreciate," she tells the magazine.
