The 25 Greatest Supermodels of the Past 50 Years: The 60s
The supermodel is that most rare of species: the working model who transcends the runway or the pages of magazines and catalogs to become a part of the popular culture. An ageless beauty whose style and personality make up for any shortcomings in talent, or sanity, or choice in men.

Grace, beauty, versatility, influence and overall fierceness. Let’s start in the swinging 60s!
