Iconic Models From the Year You Were Born

It’s hard to believe, but many of the stunning women gracing covers today — think Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell — actually became iconic DECADES ago. And we’re not just talking one or two. In fact, while modeling is considered a fleeting career, most of the iconic models from the year you were born had careers that lasted well past their teenage years and early 20s. A select few even used their modeling fame as a stepping stone to build lifestyle empires (think Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum).

Who’s next? Our money is on Taylor Hill, Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt and Romee Strijd. In the meantime, here’s a blast from the past with our look at the iconic models from the year you were born.
