#15 Rupaul’s “Supermodel” 1993
Supermodel of the world, Rupaul sashayed down the runway with his tribute to Linda, Christy, Naomi, Cindy, Claudia and Niki by elevating his cult status as America’s premier Drag Queen. Launching her to being the original face of MAC Cosmetics.
20 years ago Kurt Cobain died and so with it a movement known as “Grunge”. The Seattle look of plaids, doc martens, layered textures and a ditsy florals were all the rage. Marc Jacobs, then creative director at Perry Ellis sent out this infamous collection for Spring 1993 that cemented “Grunge” in the minds of the MTV generation as a fashion movement. Sadly critics hated the collection and Jacobs was fired from his design post soon after but not before creating a bigger name for himself that would pave the way for his signature line.
Models I recognize: Naomi, Kate, Kristen, Helena, Christy, Beverly, Cecilia, Carla, and Shalom
