World Top Fashion Models

The "Legends"

 
Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni

Few can claim to have been an all-star top model, first lady of France and a full-fledged chanteuse, but Carla Bruni is a force like none other. As a model Bruni’s compelling elegance made her a favorite of designers who embrace classism with an edge. Though she now splits her time between music and philanthropic work, Bruni resurfaces every so often for a choice campaign or cover - like her ongoing stint as the face of Bulgari, or turn guest editing Vogue Paris.

Christy Turlington

Christy Turlington

As a model Christy has reached the highest levels of fame - consistently featured everywhere from American Vogue to Time Magazine. With a face that recalls classic sculpture, Turlington is undoubtedly beautiful but it is her activism and intelligence that have made her a global icon. As a director and humanitarian Turlington has worked to bring attention to causes ranging from maternal health, to anti-smoking, creating a legacy that is nothing short of legendary.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford’s natural beauty has drawn in everyone from Prince - who dedicated a song to her, to labels like Versace, who have long favored Crawford’s wholesome yet sexy appeal. Though she’s been consistently working since she appeared on the scene and has garnered endless Vogue covers and high profile campaigns during her prolific career, Crawford remains essential due in part to the way in which she influenced the look of the 90s and onward. As the longtime face of Revlon and one of the most prominent of the original supermodels Cindy served to usher in a new era of American beauty, designer Michael Kors describes her legacy aptly, “Cindy changed the perception of the ‘sexy American girl’ from classic blue eyed blonde to a more sultry brunette with brains, charm, and professionalism to spare.”
