Question Who do you wanna see? Supermodels from the 90s or no-name-18-year-olds?

Do you like to see the >>old<< Super models from the Super model era of the 80s and early 90s or new faces in adds?

Cindy Crawford (46), Christy Turlington (43), Claudia Schiffer (41), Naomi Campbell (41), Linda Evangelista (46), Tatjana Patitz (45) & Helena Christenson (43) are all in their 40ties but still working as models and getting big deals. Probably better ones than the young models

Due to the demographic change, fotoshop & botox all of them can compete with today's topmodels like Doutzen Kroes (27) & Co.

They still got their >>names<< whereas models in the 21st century are not as popular like the 90's models who used to be Super stars.

These days big companies prefer to advertise with Hollywoodstars, music stars or Anna Kournikova



Who do you like to see in your favorite campaigns?


Claudia Schiffer in GUESS campain now and then (back in the 80s and the new one from 2012 - on the right)




Cindy Crawford on last years Vogue Mexico




Linda Evangelista on Vogue cover 2006

Definitely the old school models. They were/are superstars and were actually beautiful unlike the pale, gaunt, alien looking things walking the runway and gracing the fashion campains these days.

I feel bad for the 40+ year old models even though they get paid well. At their age they should be able to live a little, not work out even hard to try and defy gravity and have to look after their faces even more rigorously.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Either. As long as they look pretty, no?

Sad to say, since she was one of my all-time favorites, but Cindy Crawford is NOT aging well. I'm pretty horrified when I see her current pics.

It depends, Helena Christensen looks 65



But Christy Turlington looks great and is an even better person



Overall it basically depends on who I like and who I don't like

She looked better in her 20's though, they all did.

Re: Who do you wanna see? Supermodels from the 90s or no-name-18-year-olds?

It highly depends to whom you're making reference to -- in the crop of 'unknown models' there are lots who are super-popular, I'll not use Karlie Kloss 'cuz first she's American in the US, second she also does all these VS crappy stuff too which considerably increases her star power -- but IDK girls like Jac, Vilkeviciute etc. do have a good share of popularity in the fashion underground world.

Of the up-coming models only Kate King and Groeneveld have potential to be super-stars but in different areas, Kate has that incredible sex-appeal when I see certain of her street-styles = VS which can/would/might skyrocket her, Daphné has a uniqueness for the underground, the rest (majority) are boring, uniform and plain (Skriver for example, I barely can remember the new comers names anyways so many they are) -- of the models now considered as 'has been' in the industry, Vlada Roslyakova, Lily D. or Dziahileva were quite stars too, ok, they weren't really 18 then but still.

To the question well the system works on mass consummation the problem is there's no unique model anymore it's almost all the same faces considering the proportion of girls they send in there thus the probability of having numerous and too much look alikes.

They should also stop brainstorming the High Fashion runways with certain of these useless commercial Victoria's Secret models when their inspiration is low -- unless for Candice Swanpoel I really like with Miranda Kerr so as Rosie H. Witheley. Chanel Iman sucks very strong as a HF model, her Editorials easily one of the worst in the past decade but as a woman she's breathtakingly hot and very beautiful, a dream girlfriend -- probably I'll ask her out one day we'll see.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Re: Who do you wanna see? Supermodels from the 90s or no-name-18-year-olds?

There were just a number of style, social and other factors that all came together in the late '80s and '90s to create the era of the supermodel--it really was an exceptional time when models were as famous as actresses. We've shifted back toward the more traditional 20th century approach of looking to Hollywood for our glamor.

On the other hand, it is nice to see some companies realizing you don't have to be 18 or 19 to be attractive.

But I don't think you're going to see models who have the same kind of high profile as before, no matter how attractive they are, at least not in the near future.

Then again, I'd take a sturdy lass like Lena D, Jo-La or Andi over a model any day anyway.

They were still rather dull, no personality. I prefer the SI era of Laeticia Casta, Rebecca Romijn, Heidi Klum, Estella Warren, Giselle, Josie Maran, they are so hotttt
