Five Supermodels in One Place: Another Vogue Cover That Made History

In Uncategorized on March 27, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Once upon a time there were five princesses of fashion who never met on the same cover. Each of them had successful careers and people linked them to the meaning of beauty. But as they could not be seen together until Peter Lindbergh came up with this fantastic idea of having Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Tatjana Patitz on the cover of the British Vogue in January 1990. Furthermore, this was the first step for the “Supermodel Phenomenon”, which was so popular in the ’90s.


The story of some of the most famous photos in the world of fashion photography was as simple as that – Lindbergh only wanted to bring a new interpretation of women. And he did it. His black&white photos are created with a technique inspired from the early German cinema and manage to show the beauty of the ’90s supermodels in a natural way.
