Missing the Supermodel

The Movie Star is dying. Good Taste is dying. The Supermodel died a long time ago?

Back in the day, we worshipped models. Victoria Beckham’s imminent triumph on the cover of Vogue is making me nostalgic for days past when it wasn’t Jennifer Aniston’s face on fashion magazines but the real stars of the runway.


Linda, Naomi, and Christy. They called them the Trinity. It wasn’t just the photograph, it was also the walk. And the individuality.

When Andre Leon Talley screams IT’S A FAMINE OF BEAUTY, HONEY! MY EYES ARE STARVING FOR BEAUTY! this is what he means.

It was more than just the three. Cindy Crawford was not spectacular on the runway but her pictures…her pictures and her presence were stunning. And Tatiana. Even Stephanie Seymour. And Helena, Karen, and Claudia, and Yasmeen Ghauri…

Those Versace shows!!!

Once upon a time they’d all walk out and you knew them by first name. Not today.

I’ve just spent half an hour on Youtube watching these videos.

Anyway, this is Leeeeenda in New York today on shoot for W Magazine. Too much Madonna on those cheeks.
