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. I was going to create a Top 10 list of the greatest supers, but then I got to thinking, ‘Hey, Lady (that’s what I call my inner self), everyone knows Naomi, Kate, Christy, Linda and Cindy. But what about the ladies of yore; those catwalk pioneers who paved the way in false eyelashes and broken champagne bottles for the supermodels of today?’ So I dove into the past 50 years of modeling and came out dragging the 25 muses who best defined what it meant to be a supermodel. Grace, beauty, versatility, influence and overall fierceness. Let’s start in the swinging 60s!
