It was not too long ago that the beautiful X-Men star Rebecca Romijn made some comments about the modelling industry, having a dig at some of the new, up and coming models in the industry, such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Then, more recently, Stephanie Seymour seemed to echo these comments, claiming that there are no real supermodels in the modelling industry these days.
Well, the comments made by both women did not sit too well with a lot of the girls working in the modelling industry, who made it perfectly clear how they felt about it. Since then, both Rebecca Romijn and Stephanie Seymour have tried to apologise and back track, with Rebecca once again coming out to try to explain what she meant by her comments.
Romijn explained, "First of all, I was asked my opinion about a social media trend, no specific names were ever mentioned. Secondly, I'm embarrassed that I even used the word 'supermodel'. It’s a dumb word that has always been too loosely thrown around."
She added, "These two ladies (Jenner and Hadid) are in a stratosphere that I never came close to in the modelling world, and I know they're working their butts off. That said, it's not a competition and we don't get anything out of pitting women against each other."
Rebecca Romijn did enjoy a very successful modelling career of her own, which probably hit its high when she appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1999. It will be interesting to see whether Kendall Jenner or Gigi Hadid can ever make it onto the cover of the publication.
