Kendall Jenner has not taken Stephanie Seymour's comments lightly. The 20-year-old hit back at the veteran supermodel after she called her and Gigi Hadid "b*****s of the moment".
Seymour recently told Vanity Fair that Jenner and Hadid "deserve their own title" but not a supermodel one. "B*****s of the moment! That would be a good title for them," she said.
Jenner responded to the harsh comment on her app Kendallj, stating: "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! This moment is all about being supportive—NOT cyberbullying. But, 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*****s of the moment'," the teen star wrote, according to E! Online.
"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. Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we're the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure.
"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.' That's the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life."
Hadid showed her support for Jenner after she shared a link to her article on the "supermodel" debate on Twitter. She also responded to her fellow-model's tweet with: "@KendallJenner ❤️ "
