British supermodel Naomi Campbell has commented on the new generation of 'Instagirls' - models who rise to fame with a strong social media presence such as Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Naomi thinks that her generation had to work harder and moved upward slower, which she thinks lead to longer lasting careers. She believes the current crop of models could disappear just as fast as they've appeared:
"Good luck to them. I just feel my generation of women, like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Claudia [Schiffer], we had to earn our stripes and take our stepping stones to get to where we have gotten; to accomplish what we have achieved to this date. "I kind of feel like, 'My God, we've worked so hard and we are still working at it ― then it just comes like that for them. But I sometimes believe easy come, easy go. So I am actually grateful for the way I had my career. I wouldn't want it any other way. So that's for them, this is for me."
Naomi adds that there are some advantages - the new generation are able to have their own clear identities and voices:
"These girls, because of social media, are able to craft their own image in a way we weren't. These girls, even as they're just beginning, they're not being pigeon-holed by how other people see them."
