In the last hour, Rebecca Romijn has clarified comments she made about Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid not being “true supermodels”. “First of all, I was asked my opinion about a social media trend, no specific names were mentioned,” Romijn told US Weekly. “Secondly, I’m embarrassed that I even used the word ‘supermodel’. It’s a dumb word that has always been too loosely thrown around. These two ladies are in a stratosphere that I never came close to in the modelling world and I know they’re working their butts off. That said, it’s not a competition and we don’t get anything out of pitting women against each other.”

Did you hear that Stephanie Seymour? Calling Jenner and Hadid “b*tches of the moment” definitely won’t get you anywhere. However, we’re not sure this is a true clarification either given the admission the 1999 Sports Illustrated cover girl isn’t referring to “supermodels”.

Romijn told Entertainment Tonight in April that the fashion industry was “frustrated” with models who got ahead because of their online follower tally. “I know a lot of people – legitimate fashion people – can’t stand it,” she said. “Hate it that these, you know, social media stars are now the supermodels in fashion. They are not true supermodels.”

At the heart of it all, it’s all about who is the bigger supermodel, right? The older women are threatened by the new, young things and don’t understand social media as the new currency in fashion. How truly hard it must be to be that beautiful and successful.
