Supermodels are making a comeback, big time. The young women who ruled the runways in the late 1980s and 1990s and dominated New York City's nightclub scene in a beautiful brat pack are now moms in their 40s and nabbing lucrative modeling deals. Cindy Turlington, 44, is taking time off from her role as maternal health crusader and doing gigs for Jason Wu, Calvin Klein, and Prada. Linda Evangelista, 44, who famously quipped, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day," was been tapped by Chanel for their eyeglasses line, and Bridget Hall, 35, is the first model in Rag and Bone's new DIY campain. Best perhaps, the mother of of them all, Lauren Hutton, 69, is sort of blowing our minds wearing skinny jeans in the latest campaign for Lucky Brand Jeans. While today's hottest young models like Cara Devigne and Karlie Kloss are edgy and cool, they just don't have the oomph packed by the glamazons of decades past. We're glad to see them back. -- Sarah B. Weir, Shine Senior Writer
