If you mess with Yolanda Hadid’s babies, be prepared to have her inner mama bear emerge and that’s just what happened when former supermodel Stephanie Seymour recently bashed Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s modeling careers.
During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Stephanie gave her thoughts on the supermodels of the moment – Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner saying,“Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. [Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid] are beautiful girls, and I support all of them, but they need their own title.”
As for what they should be called, Stephanie suggested, “Bitches of the moment! That would be a good title for them.”
Well, Stephanie’s criticism of Gigi and Kendall didn’t sit well with Gigi’s Mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid.
Yolanda spoke to TMZ and expressed her anger and frustration over Stephanie’s comments.
“It’s sad to see some of these beautiful semi-retired supermodels, who are mothers themselves now, feel the need to publicly put down someone else’s daughter.”
Yolanda says Gigi is the full package and has the height, looks and work ethic to be labeled a supermodel.
Stephanie then took to Instagram to clarify her statements and said that she never meant to sound critical of Gigi or Kendall.
“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!!”
I’m glad Yolanda spoke up because Gigi and Kendall both are very talented models who work extremely hard. Both models are still young, but I no doubt they will go down as supermodels one day.
