Fashion needed a make-over at the start of the 80’s after stagnation had set in. There was no leading figure that captured the general public’s imagination.
Designs and tendencies came and went. Some famous models, such as Marisa Berenson or Twiggy, were popular but at the same time distant and sometimes even passé. Then the supermodels arrived. They were women from humble backgrounds, but with extraordinary physiques, and they started to earn million dollar contracts. They delighted the entertainment world because of their versatility and charmed lives.
They were the absolute Queens of the fashion industry in the 80’s and 90’s. They made thousands of dollars just for posing for a few hours. They appeared in all the campaigns and also, in many cases, they were famous for their excesses.
