Gigi has appeared on more than 35 covers of international Vogue magazines in the last four years. As a result of her father’s lineage, Gigi is descended from Daher Al Omer, Prince of Nazareth. She has a sister who works in the modeling industry as well.
When Gigi was just two years old, she began modeling. She caught the eye of Paul Marciano of Guess clothing, who wanted her to model for their baby clothing line.

We must mention Cindy Crawford when discussing old-school models who changed the world.

According to our earlier statement, Gisele ended the heroin chic era in 1999. What was the catalyst for the emergence of this trend? That would be none other than Kate Moss. It was during the mid-1990s that she rose to prominence at the end of the supermodel era. Her most notable collaborations were with Calvin Klein, the designer who made her a household name.
A large part of the development of size zero fashion can be attributed to Moss. Those who dislike it might criticize it, while those who praise it may praise it. It is impossible to ignore the fact that she played a significant role in influencing the fashion industry.
The career of Moss began when she was 14 years old in 1988. A photoshoot she did for the Levi’s for Girls campaign was one of her early works.
Unfortunately, her career took a turn for the worse after drug allegations emerged in the late 1990s. Her involvement in some campaigns was terminated by some brands during the 2000s.
