Alek Wek Slams Instagram Models Taking Over Fashion Industry

Iconic supermodel Alek Wek recently blasted the new generation of social media stars and Instagram models taking over the fashion industry reports Page Six.

Wek calls IG models “embarrassing” because they haven’t paid their dues on the runway:

“I think the fashion industry has gotten to a place where it is embarrassing. 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,” she told us.

Wek, who’s walked for labels such as Chanel, Gucci, Dior and YSL, added: “Anything that those girls get for instant gratification, [they’ll] have to pay for it later.
