Model Karolína Kurková has a bone to pick with these newbie models who have gained fame through social media—you didn’t earn it! Kurkova explained her stance on Insta-model fame with The Edit, “When I started modeling there was no social media, I didn’t come from a rich family and I didn’t date anyone famous – my work spoke for me. I’m glad, because I learned discipline, dedication and patience, and it kept me grounded.”
“Now you can be famous so easily and it’s dangerous, it can mess with your head. People are coming from left and right with two million followers and, whether they say they’re a model or a stylist, they’ve never trained, never worked with anybody, never sacrificed anything. They’re taking work from people who gave up their time and energy to learn their craft. I’m not judging, but who’s going to have the longevity? You might be cool right now, but how long will it last? Are people going to get tired of you?”
I get where she is coming from…some models especially socialites and celebutantes are getting easier than the OG models who worked hard on their craft versus posting photos on Instagram and getting famous. BUt that’s the world we live in today. In the next 10 years we don;t know what will be the cool new thing!
