A Throwback to the Supermodels of Yore

Since going green is all the rave, why not recycle supermodels? Okay so that's a stupid comparison. But seriously, designers are bringing (and in some cases keeping) in the old pros to front their fall campaigns.

There's Naomi Campbell, 38, repping Yves Saint Laurent.

Kate Moss, 34, for Just Cavalli. (This is a demotion, I guess.) Moss also has a FW 2008 deal with Donna Karan.

Claudia Schiffer, 37, for Salvatore Ferragamo, with Roberto Bolle (I think).

Carmen Kass, 29, (who isn't exactly old school, but definitely past peak*) for Michael Kors. (I'm told that guy she's pictured with is Noah Mills.)

And Linda ("I Won't Get Out of Bed for Less Than $10,000") Evagelista, 43, who crawled out from under the covers to pose for Prada.

I kinda prefer to see fresh faces. But I guess that's part of what's wrong with the industry, so I should shove it.

* By modeling standards. Obviously at 29, Kass is anything but past peak.
