They definitely don’t make them like this anymore.
Gifting us all with one major #TBT moment, Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing has tapped beloved ‘90s supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, and Naomi Campbell to star in the Parisian brand’s spring 2016 campaign. Photographed by iconic lensman Steven Klein, the black-and-white images are a minimalistic and sharp contrast to the bedazzled, in-your-face, sibling-themed portraits stars like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Bella and Gigi Hadid lent their star power to for Balmain's fall 2015 display.
“While we shot these images, I had to smile as I imagined how my adolescent self would have reacted with utter disbelief if someone could have traveled back in time to tell me that one day I would be in a New York studio, watching Steven Klein shoot Cindy, Claudia, and Naomi for my spring 2016 campaign—for those four singular talents have inspired me from day one,” Rousteing said in a statement. “Watching Cindy, Claudia, Naomi, and Steven instinctively work together, I was struck by the displays of confidence, professionalism, and grace in front of me. There was never any doubt that the final images would be anything but perfect. Looking at them now, I like to think that perhaps someday these shots might also form part of some future designer's mood board.”
As expected, the iconic modeling trio, now each in their ‘40s, together put the super in supermodel as they nail all of Klein’s shots in Rousteing’s body-hugging mix of fringe and sheer dresses, and separates. See all of the stunning campaign images below.
