Apple TV+ today announced that the new four-part event documentary “The Super Models” will have its world premiere on September 20. Made by Imagine Documentaries and One Story Up and directed by Academy Award® winner Roger Ross Williams and Larissa Bills, the documentary highlights the remarkable careers of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington. Through unprecedented and never-before-seen interviews, he takes viewers behind the camera as he uncovers how they’ve dominated the world of elite catwalks and sheds light on a link that single-handedly shifted the power dynamics of an entire industry. “The Super Models” traces the 80s, when four women from different corners of the world came together in New York. Already strong in their own right, the gravitas they achieved together transcended the industry itself. Their prestige was so extraordinary that it allowed the four to surpass the fame of the brands they presented, making the names of Naomi, Cindy, Linda and Christy as important as the designers who dressed them. Today, the four supermodels remain at the forefront of contributing to culture through activism, philanthropy and business savvy. As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and women’s roles within it – this documentary tells the story of how four women came together to reclaim their power, paving the way for more to follow.
