The “supermodels” as they are called, are a group of models from the 90s whose fame goes beyond the stage of simple models to make them superstars adored by the public.
Who are the supermodels ?
These iconic women are the trinity : Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Naomi Campbell, joined by Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Claudia Schiffer. They are the most iconic models of their time, even more famous than the clothes they wear.
Their assurances and influences continue to influence new generations of models and the world.
Their return to the catwalk
Although they all had successful international careers, these superstars ended their careers for various reasons. However, in recent years, some of these supermodels have made notable appearances on the catwalk.
Beverly Johnson, the first black woman to make the cover of “Vogue” in 1974 and “Elle” in 1975, is considered one of the most influential fashion personalities of the 20th century ! At 69 years old, she made a unique return to the catwalk at the Sergio Hudson show during New York Fashion Week in February 2022. A presence that has captivated the public.
For nearly 15 years, the Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista has not walked the catwalk. At the fashion show anniversary of the 25 years of the baguette Fendi, hosted by Kim Jones, Marc Jacob and Silvia Venturini Fendi, she made a sensation, all dressed in blue, Linda Evangelista received a memorable ovation from the public during his appearance. A very emotional moment for the top who lives at home since a surgical operation that disfigured her.
Naomi Campbell, iconic model of the 90’s, has been making her comeback for a few years on the catwalks. The one that everyone calls “the panther of the catwalks”, captivates and bewitches the public. Her presence alone moves the crowd and turns a fashion show into an unforgettable moment.
If there is a recent event not to be forgotten, it is indeed the spring-summer 2018 fashion show where Donatella Versace honors her late brother of 20 years. It is a triumph when appears to close the show, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni, all dressed in gold. A moving tribute to the man who launched the supermodels !
