This episode originally aired on September 20, 2023
Hailing from Imagine Documentaries and One Story Up and directed by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams and Larissa Bills, the four-part series spotlights the remarkable careers of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington. Much of The Super Models works like a straightforward documentary with Campbell, Crawford, Evangelista, and Turlington addressing the camera, recalling defining moments in their careers. Fashion-world figures including Marc Jacobs, Michael Musto, Tim Blanks, Robin Givhan, Bethann Hardison, Grace Coddington, Suzy Menkes, Tom Freston, Robin Givhan and Jeanne Baker offer insight to flesh out the women’s stories, providing context about the state of the industry three decades ago — how the culture zipping around it helped shape the runways and the fashion and beauty businesses as we know them today.
“The Fame,” the fourth and final episode of The Super Models catches up with the supermodels today. They are all now in their 50s, but they are still active in the fashion industry and in other fields. They are also role models for young women everywhere.
Cindy Crawford has her own line of skincare products and cosmetics. Naomi Campbell is still modeling and hosting her own reality TV show. Linda Evangelista is a successful businesswoman and philanthropist. And Christy Turlington is continuing her work with Every Mother Counts.
The episode also reflects on the legacy of the supermodels. They were pioneers in the fashion industry, and they helped to change the way that women are perceived and treated. They are also an inspiration to women of all ages, showing them that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.
The Super Models documentary series is a fascinating and insightful look at the lives and careers of four of the most iconic supermodels of all time and does a great job of capturing the unique personalities and experiences of each of the supermodels. It is a must-watch for anyone interested in fashion, pop culture, or the feminist movement.
