The Original Supermodels Had An Iconic Reunion On The Versace Runway

Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen will never be forgotten.

September 23, 2017

Yesterday, Versace showed off the SS18 collection at Fashion Week in Milan. The presentation was a testament to the late Gianni Versace on the 20th anniversary of his death. Donatella closed out the show with a bang with the help of none other than a few of "The Big Five"—Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen.

Not only did the OG supermodels prove that being retired doesn't mean losing the rhythm of your strut down the catwalk, but they also reminded everyone what it takes to really be a supermodel. (They've still got it!) The icons wore gorgeous gold gowns and joined Donatella arm in arm on stage for her final bow while George Michael’s 1990 hit “Freedom” blasted from the speakers. This moment was intended to be a reenactment of the historic finale for Versace's AW92 presentation in 1991.

In a post on Instagram, Donatalla stated "I have decided to honor his legacy with his dazzling metal mesh." Crawford tweeted "I can't even describe the feelings I had today. Thank you Donatella for allowing us to pay tribute to Gianni and @Versace. Such a moment!"

Watch the jaw dropping tribute go down in the video, below.
