What 15 Supermodels Of The Last Century Look Like Today

For the last two decades of the 20th century, a group of women essentially controlled the fashion industry. Their presence could make or break a runway show, and their exploits were plastered across tabloids.
Some people may think that modeling is not a big deal — you just need a cute face, a thin figure, and enough height to become a model. But there are top models that not only became famous for their appearance but also for their charisma and self-confidence. These 12 women were inescapable for the better part of the '80s and '90s — and we loved them for it. Nearly three decades later, these models' impact on fashion and beauty can still be felt. They've earned millions for their photogenic faces and gorgeous bodies. Even more significantly, many of these models are still dominating the fashion scene, fighting back against the notion that only the young can strut down walkways or appear on magazine covers.
Here is a look back at the 12 biggest supermodels of the '80s and '90s at the height of their fame, and what they look like today.
