They can walk the walk and talk the talk, and now they are battling it out for supermodel supremacy. This upcoming season, we will see the perpetual battle of the innocence of youth versus the wisdom of age, the ageless supermodel versus the newcomers.
The veterans know that fashion is a direct reflection of our current economic status. Will the young models have the skills to follow them? This will be an interesting upcoming season as we are all waiting to see if 2010 will be the “year of the recovery”. Which group will rise to the top and lead the way for fashion in the years out of our recession? The stakes are high, because celebrities from outside the industry, like singers and actors, have increasingly landed on the covers of fashion bibles like Vogue and Vanity Fair. Media outlets are trying to tempt readers to buy their glossys with more well-known celebrities, making it more difficult to showcase unestablished, up and coming models.
