We last highlighted today’s top models on Instagram – but before there was the gram, there was pure glamorous, mysterious, unattainable fame. From one day to the next, models appeared before the pubic eye, and their beauty was universally adored. Social media has humanized supermodels, but just a decade ago and before, models were like unicorns. Rare, untouchable, and seemingly perfect, all adding to the power of their beauty.  These are the top 5 most iconic models of our lifetime!

Cindy Crawford

Voluminous brows and hair marked the 90s, and just so happened to be Crawford’s signature look.
She was one of the most in demand models, a favorite of Calvin Klein and Chanel and everyone inbetween.

Claudia Schiffer

This German beauty was found by yours truly, Thomas Zeumer. She is among the few models
who have graced the cover of Vogue more than 10 times!

Naomi Campbell

Best known for her killer stare and boss attitude, Naomi’s iconic beauty and a larger than
life diva persona made her everyone’s obsession.

Kate Moss

Kate Moss revolutionized the face of fashion in the 90s, with her grunge-chic look.
A notorious party girl, Kate disappeared for a bit but is once again the spotlight today.

Linda Evangelista

Linda Evangelista was nicknames the “chameleon” for her gorgeously versatile looks
and constantly changing hair color. She is as remembered for her looks as she is for her
“I don’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day” statement.
