There’s a reason we called them Supers: the catwalkers and cover girls of the 1990s were celebrities in their own right, appearing in music videos (hello, George Michael’s “Freedom!”), hosting television shows (MTV’s House of Style, anyone?), and providing enough tabloid fodder through their romantic and professional lives that they eventually became household names. While we may have Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner now, the biggest ’90s supermodels were their own breed.
What’s also remarkable is that more than two decades later, we’re all still captivated by them, from their personal style to their families, which now include a couple of model daughters with burgeoning careers of their own. Below we’re taking a look back at 10 models who defined the decade, from Kate and Christy to Tyra and Tatjana.
