• Janice Dickinson doesn't consider Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner supermodels
  • The former supermodel said the popular models of today have only "one look" and "are not fierce walkers"
  • Dickinson believes they manage to land magazine covers because they have millions of followers on social media

For Janice Dickinson, the Hadid and Jenner sisters have not earned the title "supermodel."

The 66-year-old, who was a popular model in the '70s and '80s, recently spoke about the current crop of models. When asked by "Behind the Velvet Rope" podcast host David Yontef if she thought Bella and Gigi Hadid, as well as Kendall Jenner, were "good," Dickinson candid said, "No. They're not."

Sharing her opinion on what the new models lack, the former "America's Next Top Model" judge said that the Hadids and Jenner only have "one look" and lack range in their movements. "They just stand there. And get paid millions of dollars. They are not fierce walkers," she explained.

Dickinson believes the popular models of today "do not compare" with the models of the '70s and '80s and only manage to land covers at major fashion magazines due to their massive social media followings.

"The Instagram models get famous and get put into Vogue, the Kylie Jenners and the Gigi Hadids and the Bella Hadids. I mean, they are very pretty women, but they’re not supermodels," she said.

"You see them in advertising and Vogue uses them because they have millions and millions and millions of followers," she added.

Further explaining her point, Dickinson said, "Vogue has the subscription of what — 800,000 and Kylie Jenner has got like twenty-five million people following her, something like that."

"Never on the level of the girls from the seventies and eighties and the nineties," she added. "We were fabulous."

Meanwhile, Gigi recently returned to the runway after giving birth to her daughter with Zayn Malik, Khai, in September 2020. The 25-year-old hit the ramp for Versace’s fall 2021 show.

Gigi took to her Instagram to share her excitement and posted images and videos that showed her getting ready for the show.

"Opening and closing Versace is always an honour and was the best come'back'. Mostly just lucky to be healthy, working, and in a safe/tested environment to hug so many I’ve missed like family this past year. thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially my Italian Taurus queen Donatella Versace always and forever, and grazie for the major moments sweet Gordon von Steiner," she wrote in the caption.

Prior to this, she had appeared on the Vogue's March cover, in which she spoke about motherhood.

"When you see someone do that, you look at them a bit differently. I probably looked crazy, actually," she said of her at-home birth. "I was an animal woman."

During the interview, Gigi said that she was looking to slow things down, modeling-wise. "I’m veering toward things that feel more stable than being in a different country every week," she said.
