The four-part docuseries launches Sept. 20 on the streaming platform and focuses on the lives of the four models who helped define beauty and power after rising to prominence in the 1980s, all while forging a close bond. The project promises unprecedented access to the stars as they open up about their paths and discuss key moments from their modeling journeys.
The Super Models also boasts a long list of notable names and fashion industry professionals to weigh in on the four women. Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, David Fincher, Donatella Versace, Isaac Mizrahi, Anna Sui, Grace Coddington and Vivienne Westwood are among those offering commentary.
“I was not seen as a person who had a voice in her own destiny,” Crawford recalls in the footage.
During another moment, Campbell says, “I would do all these great shows, wear all these beautiful dresses, but then it would come time for the advertising, and I would not be included.”
Karan explains, “What I loved about the girls — they were a group, and that was so fabulous.”
The trailer includes a focus on the making of the memorable music video for George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90,” which was directed by Fincher and featured the four models.
The Super Models hails from Imagine Documentaries and One Story Up. Executive producers include Campbell, Crawford, Evangelista, Turlington, Sara Bernstein, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Barbara Kopple, Geoff Martz, Justin Wilkes and Roger Ross Williams.
