Even though the CFDA plans on carding models at Fashion Week to make sure that they're at least 16, someone (famous) slipped through the cracks. Mini Kardashian-star and 14-year-old Kylie Jenner will be walking the runway show for Avril Lavinge's Abbey Dawn Line. Why? Because Kylie's half-brother is Brody Jenner, who is Avril's boyfriend, duh. The CFDA responded (or didn't) about the preferred 16-and-up policy by saying: "We are not in a position to police or enforce these recommendations." [Fashionista]
