    For his Autumn/Winter catwalk show in 1991, Gianni Versace hired the 4 greatest catwalk models in the world for a single show. This show is commonly considered to have created the Supermodel phenomenon. It cost $100,000, but the images became iconic. Which one of the 4 original supermodels (if any) 'did it' for you?

    Make up your own mind about what 'did it' means. Could be sexiest, most stylish, most glamorous, had personality as well as looks. Could be the one you'd most like to sleep with. Could be the one you'd most like to hang out with. Or it could be all of the above. Which one had the "kwan"?

    From left to right, was it Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell or Christy Turlington?

    I must confess to being hardly able to choose between her and Linda. I think the platinum blond hair just tips the scales, but on another day it would probably be another answer. :eusa_drool:

    I'm guessing you just Googled some pretty pictures. And it's true, a picture is worth a thousand words. But sometimes you need the words too.

    Just because some designer didn't make up a word for them doesn't mean that Cybil Shepherd and Cheryl Tiegs weren't super and muy caliente.

    There was the British model, Jean Shrimpton, who was probably the major model in the 60's. Prior to her was Suzy Parker.

    The ones they have today just don't quite measure up.

    just to clarify they were not the orginal supermodels! Gia was the first one they say was called a super model in the early 80's and Janice Dickenson was shortly after her called one.:razz:
    On a side note a lot of people didn't realize Gia had AIDS until she died.

    Just say they called Cindy "Little Gia" when she first came on the scene.
    I might add Gia is sitting on her hands they say for a reason. ;) She was also one of the first models to have her own booking agent dedicated just to her.
