Top Supermodels Of The 90s

The term supermodel became a part of pop culture in the 90s, and women who achieved this title reached mega-celebrity status and became household names. Before Marissa, Bar, and Brooklyn it was Cindy, Claudia, and Kathy. We all had a favorite, who was yours?

Cindy Crawford

She possesses the most famous mole in human history and won America’s heart with her unforgettable Pepsi commercial. She tried acting (remember “Fair Game”), but luckily for everyone, she went back to just looking good for a living.



Claudia Schiffer

One of the original Guess? girls, her resume also includes over 500 magazine covers and dating magician David Copperfield for 5 years.



Naomi Campbell

She’s built an impressive career, overcoming speedbumps of craziness that include smacking people with phones. She was one of the many supermodels to appear and lipsync in George Michael’s Freedom! 90 video.



Linda Evangelista

She’s the hottest accordion player you’ll ever see. But given that she once claimed that she doesn’t get out of bed for less then $10,000 a day, I doubt she’ll need to fall back on that career.



Kathy Ireland

She was the reason you’d look forward to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue each year, appearing in an impressive 13 issues. Not entirely relevant, but worth noting, is her incredibly high pitched voice. She kind of sounds like a cartoon character when she talks.



Kate Moss

She hit it big in the early 90s as Calvin Klein’s covergirl that went against the grain of standard buxom models. Her near-anorexic figure is often criticized, but she’s one of the most successful models ever.



Helena Christensen

If her name doesn’t sound familiar, you may recognize her as the naked chick from Chris Isaak’s 1991 video ‘Wicked Game’.



Karen Mulder

She built a steady career as a fashion model but boosted her profile in the late 90s by appearing in the SI Swimsuit Issue as well as Victoria’s Secret catalogs.



Christy Turlington

She was the face of the Calvin Klein brand for the entire decade and takes credit for making naval piercings popular amongst teenage girls.



Stephanie Seymour

One of the original Victoria’s Secret catalog girls, she gained notoriety for starring in GNR’s “November Rain” video where she played Axl’s wife. She took on that role in real life as well - shockingly - it didn’t work out.



Tyra Banks

I think you’ve heard of her. Anyone else kind of wish she just stuck to the modeling?



Eva Herzigova

Eva got her big break when she was selected to be the spokesmodel for the Wonderbra, making ladies across the world dash to the store to buy a bra that would make them look nothing like Eva. She followed that up as a Guess? girl and one of Victoria Secret’s favorites.



Rebecca Romijn

She quickly jumped from college freshman to supermodel in the early 90s, going from the University of California at Santa Cruz to the pages of the SI Swimsuit Issue and Victoria’s Secret catalog. Oh yeah, she also married UNCLE JESSE!
