Supermodel Alek Wek Calls Instagram Models "Embarrassing"

"I think the fashion industry has gotten to a place where it is embarrassing."

Shots have been fired, ladies and gentlemen. The war between iconic 90s supermodels and the up-and-comers continues, this time with Alek Wek taking shots at "Instagram models" who reach fame by unconventional means, Page Six reports.

"I think the fashion industry has gotten to a place where it is embarrassing," Wek said. "When I think of 'Instagram models,' I say you have to take baby steps. You cannot just walk straight onto the runway. When I was working, there was no digital. We actually worked, we used Polaroids."

"Anything that those girls get for instant gratification, [they'll] have to pay for it later," she added.

Will this war of the beautiful women ever end? First Rebecca Romijn took a shot at Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid by calling the social media stars "not true supermodels," then Stephanie Seymour called the newest crop of it girls "bitchess of the moment." Can't you beautiful people all just get along?
