Not too many girls who’ve come along in the past decade have earned the sobriquet super. That’s partly because the culture itself has changed. If the public doesn’t want supermodels, there won’t be very many supermodels. If designers only want girls to hang clothes off of, how can there be supermodels? In the other paw, we have the girls themselves, and there’s only a few who stick in the mind. Being a good model and a super one…there’s a difference. Raquel Zimmermann is as close to super as anyone has been in a long time. Agreed, the last true blue supermodel is Gisele. Men-on-the-street know who she is. Random pedestrians may not know who she is, but in fashion, Raquel is at the top of the beanpole. She’s charismatic, she’s dramatic, she has a commanding presence. She’s flexible. Put her in enough fuchsia and mauve and she’s a dead ringer for Jerry Hall. Looks good in clothes, too!
