Karen Walker thrilled after Instagram post of Kylie Jenner clad in Kiwi fashionista’s glasses collects nearly 3 million likes

There was a big victory on social media for Kiwi fashion designer Karen Walker this week when Kylie Jenner posted a picture of herself wearing her sunglasses that has been liked almost three million times.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has 109 million followers on Instagram and designers usually pay big bucks to have her post a snap wearing their goods.

This wasn't the case for Karen Walker who didn't pay a thing.

"We're thrilled with this picture and to have beautiful images coming through on really interesting people is always great," Karen Walker said of the free promotion.

"We were concerned that Jenny Craig's advertisements may have misled consumers into thinking they could participate in a Jenny Craig program and lose 10kg for $10, when in reality customers would have had to spend far more than that," said ACCC Commissioner Sarah Court.

It was also found that an online testimonial video starred a company employee - not a customer - which Jenny Craig failed to disclose.

The ad has which also stars AFL star Brendan Fevola has since been amended and it no longer features Mel B.
