'I definitely have an opinion.'

Mot in modellenland. Een paar dagen geleden sprak het voormalige supermodel, Stephanie Seymour, zich in Vanity Fair uit over de topmodellen van nu, en dan met name Kendall Jenner en Gigi Hadid. Seymour zei dat ze de twee geen supermodellen zou noemen, maar iets, ehm, 'anders':

'They are completely different than we were. Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. Kendall and Gigi are beautiful girls, and I support all of them, but they need their own title... Bitches of the moment! That would be a good title for them.'

Eerder zei ook al voormalige model Rebecca Romijn tegen Entertainment Tonight dat ze Kendall en Gigi niet als supermodellen ziet:

'No one has proven yet that numbers of followers translates to revenue. So it is frustrating. I know a lot of people – legitimate fashion people – can’t stand it. Hate it that these, you know, social media stars are now the supermodels in fashion. They are not true supermodels.'

Kendall Jenner is al die kritiek nu flink zat en schreef op haar blog een artikel over de voormalige supermodellen die nu naar haar uithalen. Ze schrijft onder andere:

'I've seen the debate over Gigi and I not being "real supermodels"—and I definitely have an opinion. If you're going to tell us not to be in "your moment," then don't be in mine! But, if you choose to be a cyber-bully, I'm going to stick up for myself.'

Verder laat ze weten dat ze vroeger opkeek tegen supermodellen als Seymour, maar dat ze dit walgelijk vindt:

'I actually looked up to her. She has a daughter! I guarantee you that she didn't imagine someone so publicly shaming her daughter when she made those comments about us being 'bitches of the moment.'

Gelukkig voor Kendall en Gigi is het niet allemaal haat en nijd, want sommige modellen komen juist voor de twee op:

'There are other supermodels who give me tips and build up my confidence, sending me notes after a spread comes out, saying, "You're killing it." That's the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life.'

Kendall besluit dan ook met:

'If people want to call Gigi and I supermodels now, it doesn’t take anything away from supermodels of the past. Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we’re the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure.'
