The Resurgence

Nineties supermodels continue to prevail with Naomi Campbell, Carolyn Murphy, Erin O'Connor and Liberty Ross all making cameo appearances on runways for the Spring/Summer 2013 season. i-D Magazine also jumps on the supermodel bandwagon with nine separate covers and a stunning portfolio shot by Daniele Duella & Iango Henzi starring a who's who of modelling icons. Linda Evangelista. Stephanie Seymour, Kristen McMenamy, Guinevere Van Seenus, Amber Valletta, Karen Elson, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly and Gisele Bundchen pose in varying stages of undress for the series of studio shots. The re-emergence of supermodels in print and on fashion's runways signals a shift that perhaps the fashion industry and the public may well ready for a new breed of model that is more in the ilk of the original nineties supers. The practice of stunt casting, where supermodels are coaxed out of retirement onto the runway for select appearances has become a common occurrence. Casting director James Scully explains to American Harpers Bazaar the appeal of a well-placed super, "There is something nostalgic about seeing these girls - like seeing old friends again. Models today just don't have the poise, confidence and knowledge of their own bodies in these clothes; they are too young and so disposable."
