Naomi Campbell threw shade at Kendall Jenner with just two words
Did we miss out on something?
Don’t ask Naomi Campbell to comment on Kendall Jenner. While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the supermodel said a lot about the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star — by barely saying anything at all.
In their interview, Cohen asked Campbell a question from a fan on Twitter. “Peter the Meteor wants to know your views on Kendall Jenner being the highest paid model while saying she ‘cherry picks her jobs’ and ‘could never do 30 shows in a season?'” Cohen asked.
Without hesitation, Campbell said bluntly to the camera: “Next question.” (The shade is real.)
Can you keep up with all of the model drama?
To refresh your memory, the fan question refers to recent backlash against Jenner from the modeling community after a quote from her interview with Love Magazine was shared on Instagram.
“Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do,” Jenner said in the quote. “I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do. More power to ‘em. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back.”

After the outcry from other models, Jenner tried to clarify her quote on Twitter. “It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately, my words were twisted & taken out of context. I want to be clear. The respect that I have for my peers is immeasurable!”
Although Campbell chose not to speak about Jenner, she did gush over her supermodel friend Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, who is a budding runway star. (Another fan asked if Kaia ever asks Naomi for modelling advice.)
“She’s adorable. I’m very proud of Kaia,” Campbell said. “I sat with her and her mother at Azzedine Alaïa’s, my late papa who’s no longer here, we sat at the kitchen table and we just went through all the shows she should do or shouldn’t do at the moment because, she’s a baby. She’ll get to them. And she has followed everything. Very proud of her.”
