Supermodel Renuion: VOGUE Italy September Cover 2015

90ies Supermodels

Looking back, there were two covers in the history of VOGUE that could be classified under a caption of “revolutionary.” When Anna Wintour sat in jeans (!) for the first time to announce her position at the head of the US version and the 90s supermodels photographed by Peter Lindbergh for the British one. (You can find the original here) This inspired not only George Michael’s “Freedom” music video but also set an entire era in motion. “We wouldn’t even get out of bed for less than a daily flat fee of $10,000,” one of the ladies is cited as saying. Oh those glory days! Without being nostalgic, we ask ourselves every now and again: What ever became of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford? The answer is finally available in the Italian VOGUE. Recently there was a revival shoot with a majority of the protagonists. Only here, Naomi Campbell was replaced by Karen Alexander and Linda Evangelista by Nadja Auermann. The leading fashion editor was Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who was most recently responsible for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week campaign. You can watch a making-of of the shoot on Nowness.
