“I’m excited to reunite with my friends to both celebrate and examine the way supermodels transcended the traditional perceptions and limits of modelling in the fashion industry through time,” says Cindy Crawford.
Christy. Naomi. Linda. Cindy. These names are iconic, so no wonder there’s a documentary about them in the works. The trailblazing supermodels are the subjects of an upcoming docuseries from Apple TV+ that will revisit their modelling careers and disruption of the ’90s fashion scene.
Titled The Supermodels, the series will feature exclusive interviews with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, and will be directed by two-time Academy Award-winner Barbara Kopple. The four models will also be executive producing the series, which comes from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries.
“My sisters Christy, Linda, Cindy and I are extremely thrilled to share our story with the world and there could be no better partners than Brian Grazer, Ron Howard which is a dream come true to bring it to life, as we knew they would respect and honour our story,” Campbell shared on Instagram. “We hope our journey seen in the docuseries will encourage, motivate and inspire young people around the world.”
Meanwhile Crawford posted: “I’m excited to reunite with my friends to both celebrate and examine the way supermodels transcended the traditional perceptions and limits of modelling in the fashion industry through time.”
“I would love for people to see this as a celebration of not only our individual stories, but also to the power of friendship, dreams and perseverance,” shared Evangelista on Instagram, while Turlington said: “I am looking forward to looking back on this unprecedented time in fashion with these incredible women whom I have grown up with.”
