Cindy Crawford is jealous of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

The 49-year-old model has admitted she's envious of the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star, 19, and the blonde stunner, 20 - who have both become the ones to watch in the modelling industry - because they're able to control their image more than she was able to when she was their age.

Asked whether she's jealous of new generation models like Kendall and Gigi, Cindy told 'The Hollywood Reporter': ''I'm a little bit jealous that they have social media.''

She added: ''I think that through the use of social media, they are better able to help shape their own image. I think my generation of models, we were perceived the way we were, you know, through our pictures.

''On social media you can create or just illuminate your own image, and I think some of the young models are really good at it.''

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty recently admitted the expectations of the fashion industry are ''overwhelming'' and she finds the process of ageing really ''tough.''

She said: ''Having been a model now for more than 30 years and dependent on my looks for my work, seeing those changes [as I age] might even be a little bit harder for me.

''At times the pressure to live up to the fashion industry's expectations feels overwhelming. I can still pull off a miniskirt and 5 inch heels on set - but probably not in real life.''
