is timeless, she is a real supermodel, she is the original
The average models career is usually over in her mid 20s.
Supermodels are special though, they were thought to have
careers into their early thirties. Well after the big
supermodel era with Cindy, Naomi, Claudia, Elle, Tyra
and Christy many younger generations followed them. New
names such as Gisele, Adriana, Alessandra, and Doutzen.
Then came along even the next younger generation Coco,
Sasha, Chanel, Brooklyn and Agyness just to name a few.
However, recently now in their forties the original 80's
era have been doing a lot. Christy is still lighting up
our faces with Maybelline, Claudia is still doing campaigns,
Elle is the new host of Topmodel uk, Naomi is always on
the fashion scene and now at 44 Cindy is back on the cover
of Harper's Bazaar.
term supermodel has been tossed around a lot over the
years. We have seen models make the SI swimsuit cover
and a year later no one remembers their name. There has
even been Vogue one cover wonders that was just that,
one cover compared to Cindy's 1000 plus magazine covers.
As time goes on you can always remember a true supermodels
When you think of the word supermodel, Cindy Crawford
is the first thing that comes to mind. In the 80's when
the term supermodels came about there was no other name
in the world that was associated as much as the name Cindy
Crawford. It was a time when the only faces that graced
fashion magazine covers were those as such supermodels
Cindy, Naomi, Claudia, Christy, Elle, and Niki. It was
a time that to be a supermodel you were more glamorous
and famous than many well known actresses.
after a few decades of supermodels things have changed,
I mean yeah we still have our newer generation of supermodels
such as Gisele. However, most fashion magazines tend to
use actresses and celebrity's on the cover of magazines.
They want to have covergirls that many people can relate
more easily than 5'11' 110 pound supermodels.
the original supermodels are still around, such as Tyra
with her talk show, many of the first generation of supermodels
are still very active in the fashion / modeling world
aswell as active business women.
