Vanity Fair Celebrates Supermodel Comeback

Vanity Fair Celebrates Supermodel Comeback

Last month we reported that top fashion brands were once again bringing back the supermodels of the 1990s to star in new fall ad campaigns for the likes of Prada, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton.

Vanity Fair has now picked up on the trend, with an eight page story in the new September issue and a photo shoot by Mario Testino (right) featuring Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell.

Though they're all obviously in great shape, Testino somehow makes Seymour look as if she's made entirely of plastic, while the gorgeous Schiffer looks more like a hausfrau than a supermodel. Perhaps the lighting and make-up is to blame. The shoot was originally rumored to be for the magazine's cover, but we can see why they went with Carla Bruni instead.

Womens Fashion Takes The Environmental Route

Many people view the fashion world as something that is superficial and skin deep. However, even fashion can be used as a means to save the environment. Several crusades are now increasingly becoming popular that support the green movement, or the manufacture, use, and reuse of environmentally friendly materials or what is called the "eco friendly" products.
