Former supermodel Stephanie Seymour has apologized over recent comment she made trashing the new kids on the block — Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
In an Instagram post, Seymour said: “I respect and admire all these women in my industry, in particular Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.”
I don't usually address rumors, 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!! @gigihadid @kendalljenner
Seymour, 47, a legendary Victoria's Secret Angel, said Jenner and Hadid don’t deserve the title "supermodel."
She told Vanity Fair earlier in the month, "B****es of the moment! That would be a good title for them."
Kendall, the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner has hit back.
“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 these women, but right now, we're the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure,” she wrote on her website.
