The old guard...

The original supermodels are still du jour with many fashion houses featuring them in campaigns and fashion magazines using them in editorials. Back in the 90's, when they coined the term "supermodels" – I would religiously study the top magazines for inspiration – anything from hair and make-up to the way they were styled. I wanted to live in their world, and for that moment I did. It's great to see them back on the pages of Vogue et al, still looking spectacular.

  1. Oh miss Dina, we are so on the same page it is scary!! I have a similar post sitting in my drafts on exactly the same topic. I was thinking the other night how things just aren't the same as the only and true original supermodels and that their mag covers are now collectors items but they can still rock it today xoxo
