Naomi Campbell, model/undisputed master at throwing public shade, has some thoughts about the younger generation of supermodels, or InstaGirls as Vogue has dubbed them. According to Vogue UK, she was interviewed on the subject during an episode of The Meredith Viera Show and slipped plenty of subtle digs at Karlie, Cara, etc., into her commentary. "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," says Campbell. "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." Ouch.
