There isn't anything quite like the supermodels of the '90s, a decade often considered the golden era of models. The industry was led by Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss, all of whom gained fame beyond modeling itself, and would go on to be recognized by their first names alone. They were highly-paid (Turlington reportedly was paid $800,000 for twelve days' work each year by Maybelline in 1991) and were recognized all over the world.
Campbell et al. were celebrities and, naturally, did as celebrities did. They walked the runways and fronted ad campaigns, yes, but they also did talk shows, landed movie roles, and had their own TV shows. They also made cameos in music videos from Michael Jackson's "Black or White" to Jay-Z's "Change Clothes." But it wasn't just Campbell and what people considered the "original supermodels" who've shown face in the three-minute clips. We spotted plenty of other supermodels in Jon Bon Jovi, Busta Rhymes, and even Rihanna's videos.
