Naomi Campbell has come a long way since her early years as an aspiring model in London. But how does she feel about the current crop of runway favourites?

The supermodel has briefly expressed her feelings about newcomers and Instagram stars in the past ("Easy come, easy go," she said in 2016) but on Tuesday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, she opened up to Andy Cohen about the whippersnappers stealing her thunder.

Cohen kicked off the conversation when he asked Campbell whether current models such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner have had an easier time getting discovered with the help of social media.

She responded with an explanation of how she, Kate Moss and her other supermodel contemporaries didn't have the Internet to help boost their popularity.

"It is easier," she concluded. "You have more of a reach."

Cohen also mentioned that fans have noticed that Campbell and Rihanna have unfollowed each other on Instagram. The model coyly responded, "Everything's fine, of course it's fine. I'm an actress now, Andy," prompting a roar of excitement from the audience.

But Campbell was quick to catch her own words and clarified: "I don't have beef, especially with black women that I think are powerful. We're out there doing the same thing, and doing the same struggle."
