"I think that that in these days, the fashion industry has changed. Everything is not only just about beauty," the 34-year-old supermodel said. "In my opinion, those two girls are gorgeous. But you have to have character."

After working with them, Lima thinks Jenner and Hadid will go far in their careers. "You have to have something that shines and outstands from everybody else," she explained. "I think they’re definitely different and charismatic and I think they’re going to be successful."
