Ah, the 1990s. It was the age of MAC's Spice lip liner, black velvet chokers and Jennifer Aniston's iconic 'Rachel' haircut. The looks were bold, the eyebrows were thin, and it was the decade during which the modelling world majorly upped its game.

Yasmeen recently met up with fellow 90s supermodel Helena Christensen for coffee 

Linda Evangelista

With over 700 magazine covers under her belt, it's unsurprising that Linda Evangelista is regarded as one of the most influential models of the 1990s. Sadly, she has kept a relatively low profile in recent years after she was left "permanently deformed" by a cosmetic procedure. The model took legal action and the case has since been settled. Venturing back into modelling for the first time since the procedure, Linda has featured in a campaign with Fendi to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their iconic 'Baguette' bag design.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum was the first German model to become a Victoria's Secret Angel and since then has become an adored TV personality. Heidi is part of both Project Runway and America's Got Talent, and she currently lives in Los Angeles where she is raising her four children.

Elle Macpherson

Australian model Elle Macpherson first entered the modelling scene back in the early 1980s when she was merely trying to make some money to fund her law degree. Her profile quickly skyrocketed, and she earned the nickname "The Body" on account of all her swimsuit shoots. Now, Elle owns her own wellness company and according to her Instagram, still spends much of her time supporting designers by attending fashion shows.

Helena Christensen
