I was waiting for this. I bet everyone was. And even if the cover doesn’t feature the supermodels, the goodies lay inside.
It’s like a wine getting better with age – the six wonders that not only the connaisseurs appreciate go Vanity Fair in September for our eyes delight. Even if fashion photography doesn’t really embrace the smile as a common used pose, the six supers are all smiling wide in the first picture from the editorial. As much as I would’ve appreciated it, I still find them artificial. The only one with a semi-natural smile is Naomi (more after the jump)
Going further, the second photo with half of the girls almost naked: what to make of it? Why not get them all to undress? Is there a secret code to the story and we’re not aware of? Why do you think they made them pose like this? How does this all make you feel?
Beyond everything, though, these girls were the powerforce driving models to the glam status in the nineties! There wasn’t anything they couldn’t do once they set their pretty heads to it! – Linda Evangelista even prides herself with being the one who launched Mario Testino’s career, with a Vogue Germany cover!
The grand Janice Dickinson is the one who allegedly came up with the ‘supermodels’ name and if we’re to judge only by the power they had on the Fashion Industry at the time, the 10-or-so girls who dominated the runway and the magazines were really ‘super’ models. They stood out for eachother and knew how to raise their worth and their fun!
Besides the 6 beauties rounded up by Testino here, there were also: Helena Christensen, Carla Bruni, Elle Macpherson, Veronica Webb and Kate Moss. All keep their glam crown up to these days and will continue to do so fiercely and proudly!
