Yolanda Hadid Defends Daughter Gigi Hadid Over Rebecca Romijn's Supermodel Comments

Gigi Hadid gets mega glam in a Julien MacDonald dress to celebrated her birthday at Intrigue Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas on Saturday night (April 30).

The 21-year-old model hosted another birthday party in Los Angeles with all her friends including Kendall Jenner just a few days before.

Earlier in the week, former model turned actress Rebecca Romijn commented on Gigi and Kendall‘s status as new supermodels, not thinking they truly are at all.

“No one has proven yet that numbers of followers translates to revenue, so it is frustrating,” Rebecca shared. “I know a lot of people — legitimate fashion people — can’t stand it. Hate it that these, you know, social media stars are now the supermodels in fashion. They are not true supermodels.”

Gigi‘s mom, Yolanda Hadid retaliated on Twitter, defending her daughter and Kendall.

“They accomplished more at half your age in the fashion industry. It’s THEIR hard work and daily commitment to their profession that got them where they R today #NoParentsInvolved,” Yolanda wrote.

FYI: Gigi is wearing Le Silla boots.

    Um No Yolanda. You really can’t compare today’s models to yesterdays.. we are living in a social media digital age where you are more on the forefront. Not saying that Kendall & Bella aren’t models just that they have become way more accessible to the public, thus getting your name out there quicker than say 10 years ago. Nothing to do with hard work.

  • TooPoorToLiveInAustin

    She is flipping DELUSIONAL if she thinks K and G DIDN’T get anywhere without parents or their name familiarity. Yes they are beautiful girls but they wouldn’t have gotten the type of work, publicity or visibility without social media AND their family name and wealth. PERIOD

  • LiiL

    Did she really write “hard working”?

  • FrenchGirl

    Gigi doesn’t know to walk and barely knows to pose.
    Kendal knows to walk and doesn’t know to pose .

  • Casey C

    there’s a difference in being a model and a supermodel and these gals ain’t supermodels. back in the day you had to be discovered, not use social media and your train wreck mothers lives to get what you want because your famous rather than good. neither of them would be where they are without social media and fame

  • j k

    What a fucking moron lol.

  • Broadzilla

    Shut up, Yolanda, your daughters’ careers were bought and paid for, and everyone knows it.

  • Anna

    Let’s also not forget that both Hadid and Jenner come from a very very wealthy family, that were also both on reality TV and were already well known. Jenner from the Kardashian tv show, Hadid from the real housewives. Bella’s dad even almost out bit Donald Trump on real estate. They’re both filthy rich. You can be damn sure their modeling careers were bought from publicity and wealth. Let’s not kid ourselves and compare these two to modeling 10 years ago, when it was much more difficult.

  • Madsxx

    I wouldn’t classify Kendall and Gigi as supermodels ever. Just because you pose on Instagram doesn’t classify you as a supermodel. Getting jobs because of who your family is doesn’t count as “hard working”. Those two have had it so easy. Rebecca has the right to criticize.

  • devvv

    She is delusional and vicariously living through her daughter. No one coming up now in the industry can be compared to those who came before them. Models, musicians, actors, etc. don’t have to work hard to be A list or relevant. It’s all social media and followers.

  • Will

    Having famous rich parents is the only reason and most of their followers are fake everyone know this. You bought you daughters a career and they Model their naked bodies like prostitutes.

  • MollyBD

    This delusional woman needs to shut up. Everyone knows that her daughters would have no career if they didn’t have rich parents and connections.

  • Gina

    They are not “hard working,” they just happen to be very busy due to all the modelling jobs that are handed to them. There’s a difference. You can’t tell me that if Gigi and Kendall were poor with no connections and twice the modelling skill, that they would have the same opportunities. Being tall and pretty isn’t enough to be considered a super model. On a side note, I think it’s disgusting that Yolanda is planning on changing her last name back to Hadid in order to milk her children’s fame.

  • Visitor

    I remember this woman being referred to as a model. Must be the same type of model as Melania Trump. I had never heard of Yolanda.

    15 years ago, Neither of these two instagirls would be models. No more than Paris Hilton.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    So true. Those girls are only able to land modelling gigs due to their connections. They are not pretty or talented.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I agree with you. Kendull is only there due to Kanye West and mainly. The Kardashians were seen as icky until he came along and now they continue to be famous.
    Gigi Hadid’s own mother was a model and her father is a billionaire. These girls are only in the industry because of nepotism and money connections. They are not pretty or talented or model material to me.

  • VanityInsecurity

    true.. makes the supermodels from yesteryear all the more dope.

    Cindy, Naomi, Linda, Claudia, Nikki, Stephanie, those are supermodels…Not these two basics!

    I noticed “stars” values jet lagging or trips for long distances as “work”.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Gigi is pretty and Bella is not at all.

  • Mierzwiak

    High five, Rebecca!

  • ann Smith

    Hard work?

  • michael arazan

    Bella Hadid wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for nepotism and a $100K plastic surgery and face job. She looks 5 years older than her elder sister. VS is just compromising itself because they’ve lost ratings year over year. Instead of the high road of new innovating ideas, they take the low row road with rich entitled children of celebs and social media.
