Old school models...

posted on: Friday, 26 March 2010

Funny old evening last night...went to bed at 8.30pm feeling utterly exhausted and quite out of sorts. Was it a full moon or something? Anyway, today I feel the urge to just ponder on something distant and unobtainable; things of beauty of the human kind. Its nice to gaze at models - what must it be like to look like that? I know the media images send us all slowly insane with our own insecurities but just for a moment its good to appreciate the beauty of the human form...in its most extreme prettiness.

I remember this shot - it was on the cover of Vogue, early 90's featuring the 'Supermodels' Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Tatjana Patitz. I used to have it pinned to my wall as a teenager then. I also liked Helena Christensen as the Danish contingent; whilst she does not appear in this picture she was very much of that time.

  1. That's bringing back memories. Do you remember Helena Christensen in the Chris Isaac video for Wicked Games? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oaHHrNQVrg
    I don't know if I had more of a girl crush on Helena or a crush crush on Chris Isaac.
    Have a lovely weekend! xx MM

  2. Gorgeous photos....weren't they beautiful - and of course they still are. I really like Helena Christensen, she has great style and has always seemed so happy and comfortable in her own skin.

    I've enjoyed your blog so much this week....thank you.

    Have a great week-end :)
