Still Got It

July 9th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (49)

True classics never go out of style – the original supermodels always manage to make their presence felt and this month’s Vogue Italia showcases some of our old familiar favorites looking incredible. Mario Sorrenti shoots Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova and Christy Turlington in a series of shots that are pure glamour. Sadly, only 4 supers are featured – which 90s era models would you love to see shot by Sorrenti? My vote goes to La Linda.

    Christy Christy Christy! I love her so. But Helena takes the cake out of all 4

  5. Eamon says:

    Hmmmm.. add Tatjana Patiz, Emma Sjöberg & Karen Alexander next time please!

  6. theKid says:

    I love seeing Helena Christensen everywhere this year, she is by far the sexiest supermodel of all time!

  7. Derek says:

    Eva looks SO cute!

  8. TheCreatrix says:

    Helena Christensen definately wins this Round!

  9. ania says:

    what happened to naomi’s face??
    it’s so retouched, it almost doesn’t look like her…not that she looks great with or without the post anyways…!!!

    do agree, eva looks the cutest!

    sorrenti just bores me with his photography!!!

  10. Juan Carlos says:

    I truly agree… Linda has to be in that shoot. But the selection was right. And Naomi nailed it! Amazing beauty at any age!!

  11. Kevlin Yu says:

    IDK MY BFF GISELE

  12. Riccardo says:

    Helena and Christy are still my favourites, since the 90′s. But I heard about some strange case of stalking by Karen Mulder and was guessing if a reappearance would be helpful. I always loved her. So my list for Mr Sorrenti would be long: Linda, Karen, Yasmeen (Ghauri of course), Tatjana, Nadja… Claudia Stephanie and Cindy…

  13. k-risma says:

    I love this issue of VI! Naomi looks great! Yes, I’d love to see Sorrenti shoot La Linda, too. Speaking of…where is Linda? With the exception of the L’Oreal, she seems to have disappeared. I’m missing her!

  14. tilly says:

    naomi naomi naomi love her

  15. Gustavo says:

    Tatjana Patitz, Carre Otis – she looks superb – Elaine Irwin, Nadja, Linda…all the big ones, and also Yasmeen Ghauri, those eyes, her lips, so sexy, so latina!

  16. MOss77 says:

    Omg.Eva…

  17. K says:

    Yes, Emma Sjöberg please! Forgotten sometimes, but she was great.

  18. TOKO says:

    its true BLACK DONT CRACK, i saw Naomi only few days ago, the beauty, i was speechless. No lines, just a pure smooth beautiful skin, and the bone structure, the lips just wow….

    TOKO

  19. Antonio Barros says:

    My vote goes to Helena Christensen!

  20. AJP says:

    Yeah where is Linda??? She was basically the leader of the trinity. I’ve never really cared about Helena. Something about her mouth I don’t quite like.

  21. Aaron says:

    the photos are all gorgeous, of course. nothing but the best from monsieur sorrenti, as usual. as for the question of which other original supermodel i would have liked to see in the spread, i’d have to say it’s a three-way tie between nadja auermann, kristen mcmenamy, and tatjana patitz. mario’s photos always have such a special, poetic, almost shadowy etherealness to them and i think all three of those girls are perfectly suited to his moody style.

  22. Aaron says:

    i really have to agree with Eamon, as well………..i’d love to see Emma Sjoberg shot by Mario.

  23. Aaron says:

    ooooh, also…………Marie-Sophie Wilson. she was never quite a SUPER model, but she worked quite a bit in that period and she’s still gorgeous and i’m sure he could do something really brilliant with her.

  24. Vaho says:

    I think Helena is the winner here… and why only one photo?

  25. GP says:

    They all look great!!! So super, so perfect. I always though I bought an old magazine when I see those supermodels.

    My fav are Helena and Claudia.

  26. heather says:

    my vote is for Amber Valetta and linda evangelista most classic beauties!

  27. Marie says:

    and as for male models hands down the most gorgeous inside and out, that would be Parker Gregory, sorry guys no one has anything on this natural beauty….. Check him out he is with Click models……..

  28. flea says:

    never been naomis biggest fan but this photo is beauuutiful

  29. caloy says:

    where’s tyra banks?

  30. TA says:

    La Linda!

  31. debby says:

    OMG naomi rocks so bad she is a rockstar

  32. Ambigous says:

    Naomi’s beauty here is just too much. Aside from Eva Herzigova, they really do look dated, sooo 90′s. Linda Evangelista should be here. A true celebration of beauty should always include Linda. I don’t know what about that Linda that when you see a picture of her you feel sense of Happiness, Exhilration, Positiveness and Hope….the women above look a bit gloomy. A bit sad. Maybe’s they don’t have Linda’s eyes that twinkles at photos, or her smile, the shape of her mouth and her gums….lol…

    There’s something about Linda that is missing above. Can you guys tell me what it is?

  33. Amber says:

    I am running off to apply moisturizer and eye cream right this minute!

  34. Ambigous says:

    amber save your bucks from eye cream and moisturizers. magazine retouchers are working overnight to make theses ladies looked flawless.

  35. Ambigous says:

    helena looks like batman here or like she’s wearing a mask or something. Helenas trademark, one eyebrow prominent arch, was lost here. it’s a crucial part of helena’s dark sexy look. and christy was drowned by too much hair. christy’s natural hair is thinner.

  36. kim says:

    I love these photos! Naomi looks incredible! Well, to be fair, all these women look great! I have to disagree with Ambigous…I don’t think any of them look dated. I think part of what Sorrenti was trying to convey here was how – despite the similarity in hairstyles with Christy, Helena and Naomi – their faces are distinctly and recognizably DIFFERENT. One thing that sets the supermodel era apart from all the others was the fact that women from various ethnic backgrounds with different body types were accepted.

    I do agree with Ambigous in regards to Linda Evangelista. It would have been great to see Sorrenti photograph Linda here, too. But I’m much more interested in seeing HOW Sorrenti would shoot Linda and which version of Linda that Sorrenti would shoot instead of seeing her as part of this group of esteemed women.

    As for the retouching/ps remarks. For those in the know, yes, it’s obvious. But I think it’s much more bizarre to see today’s much younger models (Sasha P is a prime example)getting equally photoshopped and plasticized for a photo. I think no matter what the age these days, EVERYONE gets a touch-up makeover!

  37. sam says:

    this is why they call them SUPERMODELS, thats all i can say SPEECHLESS

  38. brucegisele says:

    I lovveeeeeee Naomi, Christy and Eva… the most. Helena pic is great.

    I would have to see Naomi, Christy, Linda, Claudia, Eva and Gisele in this spread….

    but ANYWAY, THIS IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL AND NONETHELESS INSPIRING. THEY ARE DOING IT AGAIN. VOGUE THANKS FOR PUTTING A MODEL ON THE COVER NOT SOME STUPID ACTRESS.

  39. Fabrício says:

    Helena Helena Helena forever!!!

  40. Junee says:

    Naomi, Naomi, Naomi! I’m Speechless looking at your ethereal beauty! Linda would’ve been a great addition to these pics.

  41. brucegisele says:

    IF THE SHOT GOES LIKE THIS: THEN IT SHOULD BE LINDA, CLAUDIA, NAOMI, CHRISTY ONLY
    THAT’S IT!

    MAYBE: CINDY, ELLE, KATE,TYRA, BEVERLY PEELE, YASMINE, STEPHANIE, OR PATIZ,OTIS, ELAINE IWRIN, MOULDER,…

    BUT IT SHOULD HAVE “ONLY” BEEN
    LINDA, NAOMI, CHRISTY, CLAUDIA – TO ME AS A VERY LITTLE FINO, THEY WERE AND ARE FASHION. I LOVE THEM WITH ALL MY HEART AND THANK THEM BECAUSE I’M CURRENTLY ACHIEVE MY DREAM IN FASHION. OF COURSE GISELE INSPIRED ME TOO(I’M HALF BRAZILIAN)SO SHE WAS IT.(ESPECAILLY THAT YOUNG GISELE WITH THE DARK HAIR/BLUE EYED W/ POWER “THE STRUT” BEFORE THE STARDOM. AMAZING TO SEE. BUT THAT’S VERY LATE 90′S WITH MINI ANDEN,VIVENNE SOLARI, ANN CATHERINE, DEFLFINE, AUDREY MARNAY, LIYA KEBEDDE, SIERRA, MAGGIE RIZER,LIISA WINKLER, AMY LEMONS, ERIN O’CONNER, KAREN, FERNANDA TAVARES,CAROLINA RIBERIO, HAYLYNN COHEN,ANA CLAUDIA MICHAELS,MARIANNA WINKERTT, JESSICA WHITE, COLETTE.P,VALERIE SIPPS, AMANDA MOORE… YOU KNOW. THAT’S WHEN THEY CONFIRM MY LOVE FOR FASHION. BUT ALL STARTED THOSE FOUR : NAOMI,LINDA,CHRISTY AND CLAUDIA.

  42. brucegisele says:

    oh, Jacquetts Wheeler, Stella Tenant, Pre-VS Karolina Kurkova,Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Tasha Tilberg, Georgina Greenville..

    I WOULD RATHER SEE NIKKI TALYOR THAN HELENA IN THIS SHOOT…

  43. brucegisele says:

    amber valleta too.

  44. brucegisele says:

    and jessica miller,marcelle bittar fits in that pile girls I had mention

  45. Ambigous says:

    Brucegisele I understand that you are a fan, but if you namedrop these amazing models, with respect, can you at least spell their name right?

  46. jconthenet says:

    Naomi is the Queen

  47. Junee says:

    Brucegisele how can u not mention Carmen Kass and Frankie Rayder add those two and you’d have urself a true baddass gang of Top Beauties of Walking Strutting Runway Vixens

  48. Claus says:
