the super

Remember when supermodels were muses for the great designers? Jean Shrimpton, Jerry Hall, Lauren Hutton, Iman, Twiggy, Veruschka, Suzy Parker. Supermodels were veritable cultural icons. Glorious, ethereal beings who represented culture, beauty and fashion in every possible sense. It's starting to come back a little bit, but models today don't come even close to touching the god-like status of the supers of the past. I love celebrities, as I've said before. But let's go back to the time when models dripped with glamour and class, producing photos representing an unwavering artistic sensibility. Instead of now, when companies throw a famous face onto their advertising campaigns to garner a little attention.

Although Bazaar has been driving me crazy recently, they did present a wonderful homage to the supermodel in their March issue. These women were just too, too good.
