With a new class of models such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid rising in recent years, there鈥檚 been some question about whether or not 2017s biggest industry names stack up to the supermodels of yore.

Largely driven by controversial comments made by Rebecca Romijn, who told ET that the girls were 鈥渘ot true supermodels鈥 and Stephanie Seymour, who told Vanity Fair that they were merely 鈥渂*tches of the moment,鈥 the buzz had Jenner hitting back, telling the ladies to stay out of 鈥渉er moment鈥 and calling them cyberbullies.

That鈥檚 not to say that she doesn鈥檛 look up to the women that came before her, however. In fact, she and her gang of model gal pals, including Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Joan Smalls, just paid tribute to one of the most iconic throwback shots of all time with her latest wildly popular Instagram pic taken while living it up in Cannes.

Featuring the four stunning ladies lounging atop one another in the tub, one can鈥檛 help but have flashbacks to the startlingly similar shot photographer Roxanne Lowit took of modeling greats Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista piled atop one another in a similar pose back in 1990: All that鈥檚 missing is the champs!

With just a trio of nails-painting emoji as her caption, Jenner didn鈥檛 directly acknowledge the shot鈥檚 inspo, but given her newfound penchant for photography, we鈥檙e guessing she knew exactly what she was doing, with an underlying message coming through loud and clear: There鈥檚 a new class in town.

*Bowing down.*
