A First Look at “The Super Models” Docuseries Premiering This September

There are models, and there are supermodels—those so recognizable that they become celebrities in their own right. The term found its ultimate embodiment in the 1990s with the meteoric and simultaneous rise of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. Now, Apple TV+ is chronicling said storied careers with The Super Models, a four-part docuseries slated to release on September 20. 

The series follows each model’s career from the 1980s to the present with exclusive access and interviews. Though, their collective presence bolstered one another’s individual fame. The supers appeared as a group on runways around the world as well as Vogue‘s January 1990 cover photographed by Peter Lindbergh. The only thing more fabulous than one supermodel after all, is many of them. 

“I’m excited to reunite with my friends to both celebrate and examine the way supermodels transcended the traditional perceptions and limits of modeling in the fashion industry through time,” said Crawford in 2020 when the show was first announcement. Certainly, The Super Models details the beginnings of an industrywide pivot that saw consumers placing power in the hands of the models themselves. As that trend has continued to the present, The Super Models will surely be a timely look back the women who changed the game.
