Amputee model Lauren Wasser recreates Kylie Jenner's controversial wheelchair cover shoot

Amputee model Lauren Wasser has recreated Kylie Jenner's controversial wheelchair picture.
Less than a week after reality star Kylie prompted outrage, Lauren has challenged perceptions with her own powerful snap. The picture sees Lauren in a gold wheelchair and wearing a black strapless top and black choker. She also wears a pair of oversized sunglasses and a short, blunt bob.

She posted the picture to Instagram with the simple caption: "Real life."

Lauren, 24, lost her right leg in 2012 when she contracted Toxic Shock Syndrome from a tampon.

She now proudly shows off her prosthetic in photoshoots.

Photographer Jennifer Rovero told E! News she was inspired to recreate the image with Lauren after hearing about the furious backlash Kylie's original shot prompted.
