Despite the new models on the ramp, the supermodels of the 1990s are still popular.
Though most of them are now in their 50s, they continue to charm the audience with their ageless beauty. They put in great effort to maintain their respective bodies. Know about their diets and workouts.
The supermodels of the1990s
The 1990s were the heyday for many supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, 52, Cindy Crawford, 56, and Carl Bruni, 54. But their popularity has not ceased.
They continue to reign the catwalk and are in high demand still. Earlier, no one would have thought that models after the age of 30 would continue to walk the ramp. But these supermodels of the 1990s have proven this theory wrong.
In 2021, out of the 25 top rankings models, 7 were those models who started their careers in the 1990s. Their career has been pretty long. But to maintain age-defying looks, they have to strive hard.
They have to work on their bodies twice as much as the new young models. Women undergo a lot of hormonal changes and menopause.
All this affects their body. They find it difficult to lose weight as they age. To lessen their flab, they have to put in more effort.
Workouts and diet
These supermodels of the 1990s do vigorous workouts and adhere to strict diet plans to keep in shape. Carl is the wife of former French President, Nicolas Sarkozy.
She has two children and had admitted this year that she has to go to great lengths to remain slim. She exercises for two hours daily. This includes a strict workout regime that comprises an elliptical bike, Pilates, and also barre exercise.
She does feel old to model now but the demand for her continues. She had said to Madame Figaro,
‘I have a silhouette and a style, perhaps,’
‘But I make unspeakable efforts to stay thin: two hours of sports per day, some barre, some elliptical bike, a little bit of Pilates.’
‘Beauty is also an inconvenience.’
And Naomi has an even tougher diet schedule. She eats only once a day and takes bath in vinegar, Epsom, and kosher salt every day for 30 minutes to get flawless skin. She follows it with a facial. Naomi had said:
‘I eat my lunch. Lunch is my dinner, because I really only eat once a day.’
Her private chef Sean John had revealed that even this one meal per day has a lot of restrictions. She has no gluten and no dairy. But she does take desserts on Sundays. He told Page Six:
‘I have cooked for her for over ten years. She has her own stuff at home, but I prepare one really good meal a day, and it’s super clean and really healthy.’
Naomi avoids plane foods and her chef packs food for her flights too. She once told The Sun:
‘I eat when I feel like it and I don’t starve myself. If I want to do a day of just not eating, I do it and just do water or juice,’
She also does home workouts.
Other models and their body routines
Heidi Klum does intermittent fasting. She has 3 meals in a day with the last one at 6 pm. She does home cooking. And she uses the treadmill and swims 20 laps daily. She also resorts to hula hooping and trampolining.
