Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are 'easy going'

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are best friends because they are both "easy-going".

The two supermodels have been pals since they met in 2014 and Gigi, 21, loves the fact the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star never tries too hard.

She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "Kendall never tries too hard. She never looks uncomfortable in what she's wearing. I think that's why we get along so well, because even outside of our style, that's our personalities, we're just very easy-going."

Gigi previously admitted she doesn't think any model will ever compare to Cindy Crawford, but credits her and fellow 80s and 90s catwalk idols Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer for her and Kendall's success as she thinks the fashion industry was ready for another iconic generation.

She said: "Obviously, Cindy [Crawford] and Claudia [Schiffer] and Naomi [Campbell] -- no one can do it better than them in the time that they were in.

"I think that the reason why Kendall [Jenner] and Cara [Delevingne] and Karlie [Kloss] and I are kind of ... able to have this moment right now is because the industry needed a change to be able to welcome in another generation."

Although Gigi and Kendall were previously slammed by Stephanie Seymour - who claimed the new generation of supermodels are not "true models" - the face of Tommy Hilfiger credits social media for her successful career and because it has given her the freedom to explore other paths and it has put her on a platform, which allows people to get to know her on "different levels".

She explained: "We are given the opportunity to spread our wings in so many different industries because people get to know us; they start to understand different levels of our personalities and our talents.

"[Instagram] It's a way that people get to know us other than a face on a page."
