Super models are a highly paid elite fashion models who usually have a worldwide reputation and background in haute couture and commercial modeling.


The term "super model" took hold in the popular culture of the 1980s and 1990s. There is no set standard of what constitutes a supermodel and those standards change over time. The term itself is somewhat a media creation. However, the elite models who are given the appellation of "super models" often share similar traits. These models usually work for top fashion designers and labels, such as Chanel, Prada, and Gucci. Super models often parlay their celebrity into product endorsement deals and acting careers.

In the 1970s, some models became more prominent as their names became more recognizable to the general public. These models included Janice Dickinson, Cheryl Tiegs, Iman Abdulmajid and Christie Brinkley. The prominence of super models increased in the 1980s, with models such as Claudia Schiffer, Tatjana Patitz, Elle Macpherson, and Cindy Crawford. By the 1990s, which has been called "the era of the super models", they were prominent in the media. During this period, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington, were called the "trinity" of top super models.

In the middle 90s, super models' popularity faded. The decline of super model popularity was due, in part, to the increased use of actresses, pop singers, or other celebrities on the covers of fashion magazines and ad campaigns. But in recent years super models get back their position as celebrities with Tyra Banks' reality show America's Next Top Model in which a group of young females compete to be the next worldwide famous Top Model.
