Dress Like a 90s Supermodel


The 90s are making a huge comeback! With the revival of brown lips, grunge-glam, plaid and Pokemon you are not alone in thinking you’ve just entered a time warp back to the decade that had everything; including the things you you’ll always hold dear – butterfly hair clips, anyone?

But what made the 90s truly memorable was the style, fashion and the rise of the supermodel. The 90s supermodels (Naomi, Kate, Cindy, Christy) evoked an understated cool in the way they dressed; carrying an air of sophistication and glamour but not in excess as seen on the supermodels of today.
