Legendary supermodel Carol Alt was the face of her generation.
But she has a few things to say about the current crop of supermodels, namely Kate Upton.
Upton landed her third consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover (okay, back cover) this year and posed in a much-hyped zero gravity shoot in her gold bikini.
And Alt has hit out at the attention that the 21-year-old blonde gets, putting her popularity down to social media.
"What I don't understand with Kate [Upton] is what's all the hullaballoo," she said.
"There are many covers of Sports Illustrated -- one girl was just wearing a bottom, no top. I don't get what all the hullabaloo is. I think what it is is that in this moment there's just so much social media and that's why she's had more word of mouth than anybody."
"I like Kate, she's a pretty girl," she continued.
"But all the girls are nice, and all the girls are pretty. Every cover, to me, deserves to be talked about."
