The concept of the supermodel truly came to fruition in the 1990s, and while those beauties were it girls decades ago, today, they’re just as stunning. Heidi Klum celebrated her 49th birthday in the summer of 2022, and it looks like she discovered the fountain of youth or a time machine, because she’s somehow prettier than she was in the 1990s. See what Heidi and the rest of the OG goddesses of the runway are up to these days.
1. Heidi Klum
Heidi was one of the best-paid, most famous models of the past, and since then, she’s become a mega-celebrity thanks to a role as judge, executive producer and host on “Project Runway” which she won an Emmy for. Along with voicing movie characters, acting as a judge on “America’s Got Talent” and starring in “Making the Cut” on Amazon Prime, Klum isn’t slowing down any time soon. While she split from Seal in 2012, she’s now with guitarist Tom Kaulitz.
2. Tyra Banks
Starting at the young age of 15, Tyra Banks soon moved to Milan where she broke out as a major star. By 1991, she had walked 25 shows in her first runway season during Paris Fashion Week. Banks broke many records as a Black model, and she’s still breaking more today as a successful entrepreneur. She wrote a book dubbed “Modelland” and has hosted a range of shows, including “ANTM”.
3. Cindy Crawford
At age 17, this stunner and her famous birthmark won second in Elite Model Management’s Look of the Year contest. The career that followed and the names she walked for were extremely impressive — she also hosted “House of Style” on MTV for several years in the ‘90s. Although Crawford claimed to retire from modeling in 2000, she’s posed for many brands and magazines since then, and even today isn’t scared to show some skin. Her daughter and mini-me Kaia walked alongside her for Runway’s 2018 presentation at Milan Fashion Week.
