If you didn't get a chance to take yesterday's SuperModel Trivia Quiz, it's not too late.  
Just click on and see if you know your supermodels from superheroes.

Question 4 & 5:

Who said she was just a "good clothes hanger" and the first supermodel are one in the same?

Lisa Fonssagrives

Lisa just so happened to be married to photographer Irving Penn.

Question 7:

Who was the first supermodel of color?

Even though Beverly Johnson was the first black woman to land a US Vogue cover, Iman is considered to be the first supermodel of color.

Question 8:

Who in 1975 landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Faberge's Babe perfume?

- Margaux Hemingway (deceased) is the granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway and the aunt of Dree Hemingway (a supermodel of the moment at this publishing).

I can't help but include this video clip from Margaux's Babe contract. I was in high school when this ran and we all wanted to be beautiful, strong, sexy and float down the river in our prom dress. . .
This Babe ad campaign received two awards from the Fragrance Foundation for its launch, Most Successful Introduction of a Women's Fragrance and Best Advertising Campaign for Women's Fragrance.

Question 9:

What supermodel made the comment to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day"?

Linda Evangelista said it and it is the most notorious quote in modeling history.

 

Question 10:

What supermodel signed a Maybelline contract worth $800,000 for twelve days of work?
 .        Christy Turlington .

Christy Turlington resigned a multi-year contract with Maybelline in 2006, proving she still has the goods.

.

Question 11:

During the 1990's, what group was recognized and accepted by the fashion world as supermodels?

The Big Six

Although many models were referred to as supermodels during the 90s, only the so-called "Big Six" were officially recognized and accepted by the fashion world as supermodels: Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. They were the most heavily in demand, collectively dominating magazine covers, fashion runways, editorial pages, and both print and broadcast advertising. Excluding Moss, they are known as the "original supermodels"

and I'll leave you with our supermodels of the future...

When you think of stones in Southwestern and Native American jewelry, your first thought is probably turquoise – and rightfully so, it’s the most prevalent and it’s almost synonymous with the style. But turquoise has a stylistic sister-“stone” that, once you think about it, is a common and key asset to some of the most beautiful and beloved pieces.
