9 Quotes From '90s Supermodels That Could Have Been Said Today
With the rise of girls with big personalities, and even bigger social media followings, taking to the catwalk, there's been much debate over whether recent years have been seeing the return of the supermodel.

Whichever side of the debate one stands, we have to admit there are some striking parallels between the models of the '90s and those today.
