The 90’s were dominated by a group of models known as the Supermodels. They were so famous that they didn’t need a last name. There was Cindy, Linda and Naomi. They were fashion icons and heralded back to a time when a woman’s curves and body were celebrated.
Very much like the Insta Models of today- Kendall, Gigi and Karlie- the 90’s supermodels were also great friends. They really were the epitome of what a girl squad was.
They walked in runway shows hand-in-hand, attended parties together, and even went into business together (anyone remember when Naomi Campbell, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, and Christy Turlington opened the Fashion Cafe in NYC?). Turns out, they still get along 30 years later.
Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Nadja Auermann, Helena Christensen, and Tatjana Patitz have come together for “The Reunion,” a shoot and video by iconic ’90s photographer Peter Lindbergh. The shoot, on Nowness, went completely retro, with a team straight out of the ’90s image-makers, including stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele; hairstylist Oribe; and makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi.

For me though, the most iconic imagery of the 90’s fashion supermodels was and always will be the George Michael Video for Freedom. Take a look and see how many of the supermodels you can name and recognise.
