Naomi Campbell claims most current models don't deserve the tag 'super'.
The 38-year-old beauty believes younger catwalk stars including Lily Cole and Agyness Deyn have a lot to prove.
She told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think the term 'supermodel' gets thrown around too much nowadays.
"Models need to earn their stripes - I just think the term is used a little too loosely.
"Kate Moss is obviously a supermodel but after Gisele Bundchen I don't think there's been one."
Naomi is currently organising the Fashion For Relief charity runway show but says she won't be asking her close friend, Kate Moss, to take part.
She explained: "Kate hasn't walked down the catwalk for years. She never really liked the shows so I won't be pushing her to do it this time around."
The model also hit out at Kabbalah, the mystical Jewish faith whose followers include Madonna and Demi Moore, comparing it with Alcoholics Anonymous.
She said: "I knew about Kabbalah before Madonna got involved. Kabbalah is not a religion, it's a programme.
"I don't like getting hooked on things like that. It reminds me of AA but just with different words.
"They've got the same principles. We're all looking for positivity in our lives and looking towards the light but I just believe in God.
"I am religious. I pray most days and do my thing. But each to their own."
