    Social medias have kicked out the "middlemen" so to speak. These days, instead of some magazines or talent agents telling us who's hot, the public can decides for themselves by their likes and whatsnot. Gigi and Kendall benefit from having rich families already in the public eyes. Young kids (and adults) look at their lives of endless designer clothes and holidays to exotic locales and aspired to be like them. That's what most of these style bloggers, guru and instagram models are selling - aspirations. Straight from Charles Revlon's branding playbook. Some of these kids will grow out of it. For others it could results in continued frustration and unhappiness when this life that they aspire to remain out of reach. I'm sure some psychologists or sociologists are devising studies to look into this as I type.

    They probably have a lot of 'haters' following them as well. I have some people I follow just to justify my 'hatred' is justified.

    They represent a fake reality as many teens do aspire their lifestyle and hope for a quick rich scheme to live this luxury and glamorous lifestyle. I find it's so common now for Generation Y to create personal blogs or instagram accounts to promote their own life and act like celebrities instead of working in the "real" world. As Warhol said "everyone will have their 15 minutes of fame"

    I don't know why Gigi gets more exposure than her sister Bella. Bella is so much more beautiful. She is more model material.

    ^I wouldn't call that one beautiful, even after the nose job, but she's definitely more interesting looking.

    But Gigi and Kendall set the bar so, so low, that even the other Hadid looks interesting in comparison.

    Kendall has one expression: stunned on a stick. Nice to know that's all it takes for supermodel status.

    My understanding is that Bella isn't working as much (turning stuff down) because she also (this is up for debate amongst gossipers) has Lyme disease, as well as her brother Anwar and of course, mother Yolanda.

    All three of those children are gorgeous, in my humble opinion. But super model? Nah.

    Gigi is much better looking and more recognisable than Bella even after Bella's ps IMO.

    It's about height and recognition factor as well as looks so that they can sell a product.
    I have some famous friends and I have mostly not famous friends.

    Going out on a limb here..... but I would say 1/2 of their followers are fake accounts. Not sure how all that works but there have been enough stories about it and the fact that most of the Kardashians use filter apps and photoshop.

    I actually think Kendall is pretty. I think she had a good chance of making it as a model on her own, if she had tried. I know I'm in the minority here, but I do think she's got the look. I still hate the family with a passion The other one, Gigi, she's meh.

    Actually Ive heard that most of Kylie's followers are fake, or the amount of "likes" a picture receives are fake
