Where are them now???
Firstly we look at Elle Mc Pherson - these 5 pictures below:
Elle 'The Body' Macpherson, the Australian model, actress, and businesswoman first became famous for her record 5 cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beginning in the 1980s.
She is also known as the founder and primary model for a series of business ventures including Elle Macpherson Intimates, a lingerie line, and "The Body", a line of skin care products.
According to Forbes, Macpherson possesses assets around £60 million. In 2010, she became the host and executive producer of Britain's Next Top Model.
And how about Christy Turlington??
The hot-shot American model is best known for representing Calvin Klein from 1987 to 2007 and has worked on dozens of modeling contracts with companies including Maybelline Cosmetics and Versace.
Turlington starred in her fashion documentary Catwalk and Isaac Mizrahi's Unzipped. She was added on as the fourth model investor, after Elle Macpherson, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer of the now defunct Fashion Cafes.
As of 2009, Turlington was studying for a master's degree in public health at Columbia University.
In 2010, Turlington's documentary No Woman No Cry earned her a nomination for the Do Something With Style Award from the VH1 Do Something Awards. The awards show, produced by Vh1, is dedicated to honoring people who do good and is powered by Do Something, an organization that aims to empower, celebrate, and inspire young people.

And the German supermodel Claudia Schiffer? Where is she now??
Claudia Schiffer reached the peak of her popularity during the 1990s, initially due to her resemblance to Brigitte Bardot. She is one of the world's most successful models, having appeared on over 500 magazine covers. Forbes estimated her net worth at about USD $55million (£38 million pound sterling). Guess what? Schiffer, now 40 years old, is still very actively doing what she likes most - modelling. She also frequently graces magazines covers. She is still in hot demand.!!!

And what is Naomi Campbell doing now??
The British model was "discovered" while shopping in London. From then on, Ms Campbell started her career in the 1980s and soon appeared on the catwalks of Milan and Paris as well as on the cover pages of internationally renowned fashion magazines. She is also known for perfumes associated with her name, and for a series of legal issues and controversies of course.
Among them :
In 2008, when talking about the term "supermodel", Naomi Campbell reportedly said: "Models need to earn their stripes - I just think the term is used a little too loosely. Kate Moss is obviously a supermodel but, after Gisele [Bündchen], I don’t think there’s been one."
In 2009, Campbell gained a lot of attention when she spoke of the "racist" fashion industry. In an interview with Glamour magazine, Campbell was quoted as saying "You know, the American president may be black, but as a black woman, I am still an exception in this business. I always have to work harder to be treated equally." Campbell has often cited model Iman as one of her primary inspirations.
In 2010 Campbell signed up to host season 6 of Britain's Next Top Model but pulled out six weeks before filming because of reportedly, time commitment issues.
Campbell, now 40 years old is still very much in demand in the fashion industry, currently signed to IMG Models (New York City), Storm Model Management (London), Marilyn Agency (Paris), and D'management Group (Milan).
