Best ’90s Supermodels Then and Now
Naomi, a 49-year-old supermodel, has extreme success in different modeling campaigns. One great landing was the famous American Vogue of the September issue. Naomi was one of the “Big 6” dubbed best ’90s supermodels together with Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, and others.
The late 1990s, the in-demand model, was still active with charity work and other modeling activities. Kate Moss, with other supermodels including Naomi Campbell, closed the Olympic Games in 2012.
Campbell celebrates her appearance as the first black model on the cover of French Vogue, Russian Vogue, and Time magazine. Not only the first black model but also as the first black British to feature on the British Vogue cover.
I would describe Campbell as apparently ageless. My role model looks no different from how she looked 20 years back – yet she still models. Some of her recent engagements include Nelson Mandela’s Children Fund and hosting “The Face Show.”
Her other recent event was closing out of the “2019 Valentino” show. The stylish fundraiser saw one of the 90s supermodels Naomi take the catwalk. The event Relief Gala 2019 fashion, held at the British Museum with the most fashionable people in attendance.
To close the show, the South London born model led 30 pupils from Elmgreen School. The British Fashion Council Chair introduced Naomi at the gala auction after the runway show. Naomi said, “Many people think the fashion community is fickle, we are not.”
You must wonder, what’s her value? “I make a lot of money, and I’m worth every eat cent,” said Naomi. There you have it!
The discovery of this supermodel was at a young age of 14 years. Four years later, her break-through was when she appeared in the “Duran Duran’s” music video. One of the original “Supers” was none other than Christy Turlington.
Through yoga and her natural beauty, she became famous. Yes, that saw her appear on Time magazine cover. Apart from practicing yoga since 1987, she has written the book “Living Yoga.”
This legendary has featured on several magazine covers and campaigns. Some cover issues include Elle, Tatler, Vogue, L’Officiel, and Harper’s Bazaar. Christy has dealt with great fashion giants during campaigns for Prada, Versace, Max Mara, Valentino, and Chanel. Christy is famous for her association with Maybelline, a brand cosmetic that started in 1992.
The 49-year-old American supermodel has quite an impressing resume. Turlington now focuses on her nonprofit organization called “Every Mother Counts,” founded in 2010. Her other behind-the-scenes duties include several businesses and charity work.
Just like I, California born enjoys keeping it real. Being natural and today, she is still ravishing as she was in the 90s. She had the honor of closing the Autumn Winter walk of 2019 for Marc Jacobs.
After the discovery of her talents at JFK airport by the Storm Model Management Founder, she quickly became like a rebel supermodel. Kate presented the image of “Face of Grunge” and “Heroin-chic” in the mid-’90s. At a tender age of 14 years, she began to win various campaigns.

In 2012, she was second on the list of Forbes’s highest-earning models. Kate rose to land contracts with big agencies like IMG Models, KMA, and d’management group (Milan). In no time, Kate, one of the best ’90s supermodels, became popular with her waifish figure, and she was “da bomb!” Not forgetting her role in “Size Zero” fashion was a buzz hype type.
At 45 years, she stills hits high in modeling, fashion icon, and as an artist. British Fashion Awards recognized her for her 25 years of excellence in the modeling career. Since I’m a fashionista, I admire her fashion and style.

The famous British model has had her fair share of endless controversies. However, she still holds onto her fans that continue showing their love despite her rebellious behavior. In May, she looked stunning on the red carpet together with Rita Ora at the 2019 Met Gala.
To keep her diary busy, she has several engagements. A cloth designer with Topshop and continues to do what she loves best – modeling.
