Vogue US, in collaboration with British Vogue, has just unveiled the illustrious lineup gracing the covers of their paramount September issue. And it’s none other than the supermodel icons: Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Naomi Campbell. With the imminent release of Apple TV+’s documentary, “The Super Models” on September 20th, this union feels perfectly timed.
The Super quartet, photographed by Rafael Pavarotti, presents a vision in black on the cover. Evangelista flaunts Michael Kors Collection, Crawford shines in Bottega Veneta, Turlington dons Versace, and Campbell embodies elegance in Prada.
In the cover story, British Vogue’s visionary, Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful, crafted the looks, pulling from elite labels: Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, Levi’s, Alaïa, The Row, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Loewe, Ralph Lauren Collection, Alexander McQueen and Schiaparelli.
While their exterior allure is evident, Sally Singer, Vogue’s Creative digital director, in a poignant feature, ponders the magic beneath. These legends have “extraordinarily photogenic features, born-with-it confidence, quick wit, intuitive style [and] intense curiosity.” Designers felt the shift too. Michael Kors reminisces about Crawford’s debut on his runway, marking an epoch in fashion: ”Cindy walked for me and you knew it was a whole new chapter – very poised, her own way of moving, not stuck in the old-world Parisian way of modeling. The models who were traditional runway models in that show took a look at her and knew this was going to be a whole new era.”
