Lindbergh has shot the first generation of supermodels: Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford & Linda Evangelista and more. The “girls” are now all in their 40 something. What a gorgeous generation. If you remember the Versace’s shows in the 90’s, they were absolutely superstar.
