These Vintage Photos Of Supermodels Are So Beautiful It Hurts

Today when we think of top models, we think of the Gigi Hadids and Kendall Jenners of the world. But before these leggy ladies, there were some pretty iconic faces that paved the way.

Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss are just a few of the models who walked catwalks, starred in ad campaigns and attended glitzy parties before some today's most famous faces were even born. Of course, there are tons of iconic images of these '80s and '90s supermodels all over the pages of our favorite magazines, but there are also many amazing photos that most of us have probably never seen.

We've rounded up 15 gorgeous photos of some of our all-time favorite supermodels from back in the day. We don't know about you, but we want all of these made into posters for our apartments.
