New short film shows the original Supermodels still have what it takes, recapturing the magic and memories that heralded the arrival of a fierce fashion era

Prior to Instagirls and Reality stars, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, captured the world’s imagination.

No one seized the zeitgeist of the era as much as acclaimed fashion photographer Peter Lindburgh, who pooled the collective gorgeousness of the supermodels into what became his signature black-and-white portraits.

Lindburgh has reached for the Supermodels’ combined magic once more, bringing six of the most influential models back before his lens in a shoot titled ” The Reunion.”

Playfully posing in chunky knits, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christiansen, Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Nadja Auermann, and Tatjana Patitz feature in a fly-on-the-wall documentary covering ‘the making of’ the original and current portraits.

Speaking candidly, about their memories with the acclaimed lensman, Cindy Crawford is overheard saying that his energy is most memorable for her. “He loves women and that really comes across; he really sees the beauty in a mature woman,” she said.
