When it comes to celebrity models, a few big names come to mind. Most agree that titans of the modeling industry include Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford. These beauties also have the brains to match, with incredibly successful careers well beyond the track.
In a recent interview, these world-famous models discussed their decades-long careers and friendships. In a particular group chat, the four friends also talk about their new upcoming Apple TV+ docuseries, The models. Fans are eager to learn more.
Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista became icons of the 90s
They may have gained status and fame in the ’90s. But Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista are proving their staying power. From modeling to acting to skincare lines, this quad of beauties continues to dominate. As Campbell told Vogue, they’ve traveled together as friends all these years, using regular group chat since cellphones became the norm.
Campbell recalls modeling work back then. The 51-year-old respects today’s talented models, but sometimes feels those early days were “happier”. She explained, “We smiled and showed our personalities.” As she details, her group of model friends did eight shows a day and rubbed shoulders with designers in the evening. And they all supported each other to keep their energy. “We worked hard,” Campbell said. “We never said we were tired.”
The London native also wonders if today’s models could have followed them back in the 90s. But the truth is, it’s unlikely anyone could follow them now either. Exciting things are afoot for these four hardworking women. This includes a new docuseries that they are excited to produce.
A new Apple TV+ docu-series is in the works
The models is an exciting new project from celebrity models, as they will tell their stories in a way only they can. Barbara Kopple will direct the Apple TV+ episode. She already has an Oscar under her belt alongside Ron Howard. Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista are all producers of the docuseries.
The models will return to the reigns of fashion shows. It’s about “our life and our times together,” says Campbell, covering friendship, careers, womanhood and motherhood. This partnership is exciting for all four women, who look forward to sharing their stories through their own lenses. In a way, this docuseries is their combined memoir.
The models will join Apple’s growing offering of award-winning documentaries and docuseries. An official release date has yet to be announced.
Have Crawford, Turlington and Evangelista met Campbell’s daughter?
Campbell announced that she became a mom in May 2021, without disclosing any details about her daughter’s arrival. The supermodel told Vogue she’s saving all the details for her upcoming memoir, which she hasn’t started yet. Campbell shared that Crawford was the first to meet Campbell’s daughter. Turlington then visited, within two weeks of the baby girl’s birth.
Evangelista has yet to meet Campbell’s daughter, but likely will when things are less hectic. She recently announced her lawsuit against Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting method. Evangelista went public with her struggle as the proceedings “brutally disfigured” her. Campbell told Vogue that she was supporting her “very brave” friend, praising Evangelista for having the courage to “speak her truth”.
