Once upon a time their was a handful of absolutely stunning models that we’re working around the same time. Now you could say their were gorgeous models before and after this time, but not as many and not as beautiful. These women truly launched the supermodel phenomenon. These girls were enormous stars. Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford were the top names in the business.
These woman were so beautiful they have not been replaced, not on the level they were known. Although today you have models such as Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen they are still not household names on the scale of the eighties supermodels. It has to be mentioned that Yasmin Le Bon was at her height slightly before these girls so although incredibly successful she did just miss this time. The other supermodels who were also hugely successful were Claudia Schiffer, Karen Maulder, Helena Christensen.
Christy Turlington appears on the front of British Vogue July Issue, a very beautiful woman at 45 years old. Christy has used her fame to launch a campaign called Every Mother Counts which supports the end of preventable deaths in pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
