ICYMI… Models from the early 90s have chips on their bony-ass shoulders about Kendall and Gigi being called “supermodels.”
First, model-turned-subpar actress Rebecca Romijn talked shit saying she was “disappointed in Vogue” for “supporting this trend of social media stars [setting] our style standards.” And now, Stephanie Seymour is getting in on the bitchy ex-model action.
“[Kendall and Gigi] are completely different than we were. Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. They 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.”
Whoa… That seems uncalled for. You’re like, 50 and attacking a couple 20-somethings for doing EXACTLY what you did at their age, so who's really the bitch here? *insert cliché hypocrite metaphor of choice*
Turns out, the fashion industry doesn’t like it when middle-aged ex-models bully current models. Zac Posen came out saying Kendall and Gigi were most def supermodels. Yolanda #proudmommy Hadid obviously got all up in arms and said it was sad. Even Kendall released a statement defending herself, calling Seymour out for being petty and jealous AF.
“If you're going to tell us not to be in ‘your moment,’ then don't be in mine…No one is trying to steal Stephanie Seymour's thing, or trying to be her. 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.”
Of course, after being publicly burned by a member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Seymour insta’d photos of KenGi saying it was all a rumor and she was JK and she knows they work hard, blah blah blah.
Here’s the thing… Who cares if they’re from rich and famous families? They’re gorgeous as fuck and the entire world is obsessed with them. So get over it, has-beens. Just enjoy retirement, be glad you can drunk eat pizza now and leave the new generation of supermodels alone.
