Who you callin’ a bitch? Kendall Jenner fired back at Stephanie Seymour after she referred to Jenner and fellow model Gigi Hadid as not supermodels but “bitches of the moment.”
“Gigi sent me the most recent rant and I'm disappointed. If you're going to tell us not to be in ‘your moment,’ then don't be in mine!” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 20, wrote on her website, kendallj.com.
“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 ‘bitches of the moment,’” Jenner continued.
Seymour, 47, told Vanity Fair that the new class of beauties, which includes Jenner and Hadid, 21, 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.” And what would she call them? “Bitches of the moment!” she joked. “That would be a good title for them.”
But Jenner, who recently did a shoot for Vogue’s September issue, thinks that the title can be shared. “Being a ‘supermodel’ is a relative term. If people want to call Gigi and I supermodels now, it doesn't take anything away from supermodels of the past,” she continued. “Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we're the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure.”
Though the criticism from her predecessors has been harsh, Jenner vows to rise above it. “When I'm older, I'm going to be so nice to anyone who's trying to do the same thing as me. 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,’” she said. “That's the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life.”
