Modeling might seem like little more than a carousel of travel, parties and having your every pore attended to, but it’s a business — a harsh one. This was made perfectly clear when the gloriously maned and limbed supermodels of the Eighties, like Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell, were swapped out in the early Nineties for generally smaller and paler counterparts, after years of wielding unheard of power in fashion. Evangelista, for one, may be forever associated with demanding $10,000 just to get out of bed, but just at their peak earning power, a new wave of faces emerged.
Led by Kate Moss, who nabbed her first Calvin Klein ads in 1993, campaigns and shows were suddenly full of waifish teenage girls, like Shalom Harlow, Lucie de La Falaise and even Liv Tyler before she broke out as an actor. And they dominated the scene for years to come.
