The supermodels of the 1990s – Naomi Campbell Kate Moss Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington to name a few – were truly iconic, giving us some of the most memorable catwalk moments and incredible fashion shoots of all time.

A new coffee table book dedicated to the women who wouldn’t “wake up for less than $10,000 a day” (according to Linda Evangelista) rewinds back to their glamorous heyday with 130 photos starring the original ‘supers’.
