Among all the Victoria’s Secret Angels, Agyness Deyn stood out. Beautiful, yes; enchanting, yes, but she had something a little more. Her distinct tomboy look and short hair helped her stand out in a crowded marketplace, and the punk aesthetic that she was able to cultivate was a joy to watch on the runways.
Deyn worked for Alexander Wang, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, and lots more. She was the official face of Burberry, Doc Martens, and other products you may be familiar with. Retiring from modeling in 2012, she moved on to acting. The movies that Agyness has appeared in include “Clash of the Titans,” “The Titan,” and “Her Smell.”
Today, Carmen Dell'Orefice proudly carries the title of the oldest living supermodel, a testament to her enduring passion and indomitable spirit. Born in 1931, Dell'Orefice embarked on her modeling journey at the tender age of 15 and has never looked back. Remarkably, she holds the distinction of being the youngest model ever to grace the cover of Vogue.
In 2011, her outstanding contributions to the fashion industry were honored with an esteemed honorary degree. Even in her 90s, Dell'Orefice continues to make waves, representing renowned brands like Missoni and Sephora with grace and style. Her unwavering presence serves as an inspiration to models of all ages.
Erin O’ Connor
Erin O'Connor has been the living subject of many top of the line designers and artists. She has walked the Chanel and Versace catwalks, and her face has been spread on numerous billboards over the years. Her iconic hairstyle and her imperfection have made Erin one of the most successful models of our era.
Jean Paul Gaultier has Erin as the face of his fragrance collection as she brings beauty that will never go out of date or age. She represents Toni & Guy, she writes a column in a British fashion magazine, and she is for sure one of a kind.
Beverly Peele began working as a model at the surprising age of just twelve. Her first magazine cover, “Mademoiselle,” came in 1989. From there, she moved on to “Vogue,” “ELLE,” and “Cosmopolitan,” and walked for Prada, Comme des Garcon, and John Galliano.
Despite her atmospheric success, Beverly took a step back in 1993 to raise her daughter Cairo. Since then, she has had three more children, her sons Trey and DJ and daughter Storm. In 2017, Beverly and Storm appeared on the Lifetime docu-series “Growing Up Supermodel,” a show that follows the careers of the children of famous models such as Peele.
Claudia Schiffer was the very first model to appear on the cover of “Rolling Stone.” Once the highest-paid model in the world, she was bringing in something like fifty thousand dollars a day, and she was prolific, too: Claudia has appeared on magazine covers more than five hundred times.
Trying her hand at acting, she appeared in “Love Actually” and “Zoolander.” Claudia is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and was also a part of the Arts and Entertainment Support Committee. In addition to her humanitarian efforts, Claudia Schiffer launched her own fashion line and published an autobiography chronicling her illustrious career.
