Janice Dickinson had a few things to say about Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian during a recent interview.
The supermodel questioned why the two reality stars are constantly featured on magazine covers.
“They’re not models.” she said.
Dickinson, who married Dr. Robert Gerner on December 10, didn’t hold back during an interview with The Tomorrow Show.
“I think she’s lovely,” Dickinson, 61, said when asked about Jenner. “Don’t get me wrong. But I don’t think she’s a supermodel, I don’t.”
As a former “America’s Next Top Model” judge, Dickinson believes that models such as Jenner and Gigi Hadid are only in demand with designers and photographers because of their popularity on social media.
She also expressed her disappointment with the industry’s choice to use “digital” versus raw work, which is commonly shown in extreme measures on PhotoShop.
“Give me a break. You think that’s supermodel?” Dickinson said while looking at a photo of Jenner. “That is not supermodel … She can’t beat me. She can’t. Apples and oranges.”
While her disapproval of Jenner was apparent, Dickinson expressed even more disgust with the younger woman’s sister, Kim Kardashian.
She says she was “shocked and disappointed” that editor-in-chief Anna Wintour would feature Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West on the cover of American “Vogue.”
“Kim Kardashian made the cover of ‘Vogue,’ which made me want to vomit. It was crazy,” Dickinson said. “They’re not models! They’re reality TV stars! You know, modeling is extremely hard work, you have to have perfect proportions. The Kardashians do not have couture proportion.”
Dickinson began her modeling career in the 1970s and soon came to be known as the “world’s first supermodel.”
