Supermodel and actress Rebecca Romijn slammed Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid as fakes.

Romijin said Vogue magazine ought to set the standard for fashion and not cave to social media stars like Jenner and Hadid.

British Vogue shot back in the pair’s defense on Twitter.

Jenner and Hadid have been on 15 Vogue covers, according to the New York Daily News.

The comments came weeks after Calvin Klein made similar statements about Jenner, according to the News.

“Now, models are paid for how many followers they have. They’re booked not because they represent the essence of the designer, which is what I tried to do — they’re booked because of how many followers they have online,” Klein said.
