There ain’t nobody who can get away with throwing shade at Kendall and Gigi! Even if that shade is accidental.
Last week, former supermodel Stephanie Seymour claimed that “supermodels” as they are understood are a thing of the past, and joked that the new girls should be considered “bitches of the moment.”
Vanity Fair, who published the interview quotes, claimed that Seymour was referring to Gigi and Kenny. However, after the retired model experienced some major backlash she’s taken to Instagram to defend herself and call BS on the attack.
“I don't usually address rumors,” she wrote, “but since feelings have been hurt I would like to set the story straight. At an event last week I was jokingly asked if the "era of supermodels" was over, what should we call the new great "it" girls?? There were no names mentioned, and NO ill intent involved. A supermodel is a supermodel. I respect and admire all these women in my industry, in particular Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Having been in the business over 20 years I know how hard these women work. Bravo to both Gigi and Kendall for their success!!”
Last week, a hurt Kendall took to her website to vent about the comments, writing:
"If you choose to be a cyberbully, I’m going to stick up for myself. 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 about us being ‘b****** of the moment.'"
"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."
We wonder how the girl's will respond to this new information... end of the feud?
