The Trinity

During the 1990s, this group of women were considered to be 'the most famous supermodels of them all' including Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. They became known as The Trinity, a term first used by Journalist, Michael Gross in the 1980s.This term became sensationalized throughout the media however it has come to light that this was not favoured by the women. Due to their large scale success, these three were known throughout the industry on a first name basis, Christy, Naomi, Linda. They all were known for something within their group, Linda as the Chameleon for her ability to transform her look and to reinvent herself Christy was known as the 'insurance model' saying "Clients know that if they hire me, nothing will go wrong."" Naomi was the first black model to appear on the cover of French Vogue and British Vogue. For the first time, supermodels were having their names credited in the magazine editorials. Linda was quoted saying in 1990 that, "We don't 'vogue'; we are vogue,” referring to herself and fellow model, Christy Turlington. According to Christy, there term The Trinity was made-up and only came about due to the surfacing of two now iconic images of the three women; drinking champagne in a bathtub, and the other portraying the 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' metaphor. Even though as time is passing, these three women still remain active in the modelling industry and have went on the become heavily involved in philanthropic endeavours. They have managed to stay at the forefront of fashion. What made these girls most famous was their ability to land themselves of multiple covers.
