Vintage is always in style - 90s models make a come back in 2012

In recent fashion news:

Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2012 fashion ad campaign puts the “original” supermodels of the 1990s’ back in the spotlight, with Naomi Campbell, Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson in starring roles alongside 17-year-old supermodel Daphne Groeneveld.

According to AFP Relax News, fashion houses’ fascination with teenage models has declined in recent years as designers are looking to hire older, more recognizable supermodels to be the faces of upcoming campaigns. In Cavalli’s case, three of the four models of the campaign are in their 30s and 40s.

The rise of the original supermodel can also be credited to British band Duran Duran’s music video for their single “Girl Panic” which came out in November. The video features some of the 1990s’ biggest names such as Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Yasmin Le Bon, and Naomi Campbell. 

Check it out the video. It's actually really well done

Following this trend of vintage model headliners are labels like David Yurman, which is currently working with Kate Moss, 37, Italian label Pinko, which has recently announced Campbell, 41, as the face of their Spring 2012 campaign, and  Joseph Ribkoff, which has chosen Le Bon as the face of the Spring 2012 collection.

On a final note, models are freaks of nature. They do not age, gain weight, or wrinkle....I better look like Naomi Campbell when I'm 41. Hell, I'm 21 and I'm not even close to looking that good in lingerie. Screw you Duran Duran and 90s models!
