Hailey Baldwin doesn't 'ever' consider herself a supermodel

Hailey Baldwin doesn't 'ever' consider herself a supermodel

Hailey Baldwin won't "ever" consider herself a supermodel.

The 19-year-old American model - who has starred in campaigns for luxury fashion brands Tommy Hilfiger and Chanel - has admitted she doesn't credit herself as being on the "same level" as her catwalk icon pals Kendall Jenner, 20, and Gigi Hadid, 21.

Speaking to PEOPLE about her peers, the blonde beauty - who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and his wife Kennya - said: "I'm not on the same level as Gigi and Kendall.

"We're not in the same place in our careers.

"[I do] not ever consider myself a supermodel."

And Hailey - who signed to Heroes Models in 2015 before signing to IMG Models this year - has admitted her busy schedule makes it difficult to meet up with friends, although she has revealed she sees the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star the most.

She explained: "We don't hang out that often! [Their] schedules are so crazy.

"We're all friends. We all have the same job, but we aren't together that often, especially as a trio.

"I see Kendall more often than anybody, but it just so happened the three of us we're in town at the same time."

Meanwhile, Hailey has defended Gigi and Kendall, who have recently been slammed by Stephanie Seymour who claimed the pair were "B****es of the moment" in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, and titles the pair as the new generation of models.

She said: "The truth of the matter is it's a new day and age. No one is trying to disrespect the models from that decade and era, but they are the new faces of the modelling generation along with Karlie Kloss and other big supermodels. So, unfortunately, people can say what they want but they're still going to step on the same runways as any other big supermodel this day and age."
