The 2008 Image Index: Older models

UP: OLDER MODELS There were so many ’90s supermodels gracing the pages of fashion magazines this fall, you’d suspect a George Michael and RuPaul comeback tour was in the works. Linda Evangelista wore Prada’s lace head to toe, Naomi Campbell (left) looked as lithe as ever in the YSL ads, Christy Turlington gave her yoga togs a rest and posed for Escada, and Claudia Schiffer was the season’s most ubiquitous face as the main mannequin for Chanel and Ferragamo. All are well into their late 30s and early 40s, and in an industry where 24 is over the hill, it’s refreshing to see that getting older is actually in fashion.
