The modelling and fashion industry didn’t just start today as it has birthed tons of supermodels through the decades. While there is a new breed of models who are making their mark in the industry and digital space, we can’t help but take you down memory lane on some of the supermodels that reigned then and what they look like now.
We remember how the fierce and beautiful Tyra Banks rocked the runways and covers. Her charm was so contagious that she was made the first black woman to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Now, she is schooling models through her America’s Next Top Model show and has so far written three books.
Claudia Schiffer’s scouting story is definitely one for the books as she was discovered in a nightclub and became a Guinness world record holder for the model with the most covers.
Now she still partners with brands and has three children.
Discovered at age 14, Christy Turlington worked her way up the industry, and she was regarded the greatest model of all time by James Scully.
Of course, the wrinkles are starting to show, and she is focused on her non-governmental organization.
The iconic Naomi Campbell entered the industry and became the diva that everyone looked up to. She was one of the five models that earned the title Supermodel in every sense of the word.
She is still strutting through runways, and it doesn’t seem like she has aged a day.
The model with the signature short hair, Linda Evangelista became such a highly rated and paid model after being scouted from a teenage modeling contest.
Evangelista still models, and she is the creative director and vice president of a skin care brand called Erasa.
The vibe, the iconic supermodel Kate Moss brought to the industry was definitely new and revolutionary. She made skinny so sexy, and brands couldn’t stay away.
She is still very much in the fashion industry and well respected.
From Valedictorian to an outstanding modeling career, Cindy Crawford and her beauty mark cannot be forgotten anytime soon.
Well, it seems she has passed on the modeling baton to her daughter – Kaia Gerber who is making her mom proud.
We can call her the Sportswear model as she stayed on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue for good three years (1979 – 1981).
She is over 60 now and still featured on another sports cover! She also owns tons of businesses in the winery and beauty lines.
Another Swimsuit regular is the supermodel Elle Macpherson which TIME magazine often referred to as, The Body because of how outfits rested really nicely on her curves.
Now, she is into designing, acting, and healthy lifestyle living.
The Supermodel Ireland was the complete package, as Senior editor, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue- MJ Day, noted.
Now, she has a $2 billion retail empire and currently the richest model in the world.
Thanks to the German contest which Heidi Klum won, it was her springboard to being such an iconic supermodel of her time.
Currently, we know her as the award-winning host of Project Runway.
Helena Christensen is a Supermodel in every sense, one who has graced over 600 magazine covers.
Right now, she is still in front of the camera, and also behind the camera, as she is also involved in photography.
Brooke Shields got her first modeling gig when she was just 11 months old, and since then, she has made a name for herself in the industry.
However, right now, her attention is on acting, and she has featured in many TV series so far.
