80s-90s-supermodels: “The Last Supermodel”, VOGUE US, March...

Their canvases were not restricted to what made their livelihood back in the 90’s, but also what made them acquire notoriety. These five supermodels were on constant display on TV screens, billboards, ad campaigns and magazine covers alike, and with their own set of diverse looks and individual personalities, they were the it-models that made it big. These women not only reigned the fashion scene with their own unique appearances, but they were also the ones who brought the word “supermodel” to life.

Linda Evangelista

In the 90’s, Evangelista was the ultimate beauty chameleon when it came to hair. The bob cut that literally paved the way for a successful modelling career remained her signature hair style. Only thing updated was the length and colour of it, ranging from black and platinum blonde to caramel brown and bright red.

For that boyishly sexy and ruffled texture, apply Bumble and bumble Texture Hair Undressing Creme and comb it through the hair before drying. That tousled, undone effect can be styled and maintained for days with Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo. If a sleek bob is more appealing, try Shea Hair Cream from Hamadi Organics. This nourishing styling product has been Linda’s go-to hair styling essential for over a decade.

Claudia Schiffer

A pretty smile, sky blue eyes and shiny blonde waves made this German beauty quickly gain supermodel status. Schiffer has always been a natural beauty, keeping makeup to the minimum besides from her signature kohl-rimmed eyes combined with perfect brows and natural lips.

Naomi Campbell

Naomi’s exotic looks have grazed hundreds of covers, with highlights in her career being the first ever black model to appear on the covers of British and French Vogue. Her hip-grazing, raven black mane that could fool anyone into thinking it’s made from the smoothest of satins, is the look that gained her iconic status.

Achieve those high-maintenance, straight lengths by using ghd Classic 1 Inch Styler followed by Ouai Hair Oil to beat the frizz out of the hair, leaving it with a super glossy finish. Additionally, Jen Atkin advises to double up on hydration by using the oil as a nourishing overnight mask. Simply work it in before bed time and rinse in the morning.

Cindy Crawford

The American super model’s birthmark above her upper lip might be her signature beauty mark, but her voluminous waves, flawless skin and mesmerizing eye look are a lot easier to recreate.

In order to get Crawford’s full-on glamorous locks, it’s best to drop by a blowout bar. To make it last for up to three days, the super model uses Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, which builds an incredible volume and sultry texture.

Her Makeup Must-Haves

Christy Turlington

No one embraces the minimalistic approach to makeup quite as Turlington. She is a firm believer of the ‘less is more’ statement, taking good care of her skin and sticking to a simple makeup look consisting of a solid concealer, full-effect mascara and nude lipstick; a fail-proof combo that is.
