Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell Re-Create Their 20-Year-Old Campaign Against Breast Cancer
Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell almost have us ready to believe that the process of aging is simply a myth. Twenty years after posing for legendary fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the iconic '90s supermodels have once again lent their powerful names and famous faces to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, an organization created by Ralph Lauren in 1996 that raises funds for research of the disease.
The duo first posed, independently, in ’96 and flaunted their lithe, minimalistic aesthetics for the high-wattage campaign. And now the beauties are supporting the cause once more, though this time for Mario Testino’s camera. In the shots, each model rocks a plain white tee with a matching set of black jeans—while bearing a striking resemblance to their 20-years-younger selves.
As for the campaign, they’re hoping it’ll quickly foster change. “It’s great to be returning to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer on this very special anniversary year,” Moss said, according to a 'gram shared by the intitiative. “Since its U.K. launch in 1996, when I first appeared in the campaign poster, #fashiontargetsbreastcancer has gone on to impact so many lives by funding vital research into this devastating disease.”
The sentiments were similar for Campbell. “I never could have expected back in 1996 that I would go on to experience first-hand the harrowing effect this disease can have on individuals, families, and loves ones,” she said. “For the last 20 years Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has united us all—scientists, models, designers, mothers, photographers, retailers—as a powerful force against this disease. That’s two decades of incredible support for cutting-edge breast cancer research and it’s vital that we don’t stop now.
Talk about the ultimate throwback.
