The return of the supes . . .
For the latest installment of Nowness’s Directors’ Cut series, legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh united six of the top faces of nineties fashion: Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Nadja Auermann, and Helena Christensen. In the fashion film, aptly titled The Reunion, the supers can be seen posing while reminiscing about “the white shirt” January 1990 Vogue shoot, walking the Versace runway, and, of course, George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90” music video.

From sword-slashing to fabric-cutting . . .
Antonio Banderas is officially a student at London’s Central Saint Martins, one of the world’s most prestigious fashion schools. Already two weeks into classes, the actor, director, and screenwriter took to Instagram to share a snapshot posing alongside dress forms. Perhaps a London Fashion Week debut is closer than we think?

Sylvia Plath, original thrower of shade . . .
It looks like the classic American poet and novelist was ahead of her time as far as slinging insults is concerned. A tweet with a screenshot from the 1950s literary icon’s autobiographical work The Journals of Sylvia Plath, in which she describes someone as “a basic character,” is going viral. We may not have been around to encounter “basic” people from the mid-20th century, but chances are they didn’t share affinities for pumpkin spice lattes and yoga pants. [Dazed]
Remembering Carl Apfel . . .
There is no one in fashion who doesn’t know—and respect—the name Iris Apfel, but to be sure, her celebrity takes nothing away from her husband of more than six decades, Carl, who sadly passed away earlier this month. The couple began their own textile company together, which led to a lifetime of travel and adventure for the pair. In the words of Iris herself, “[Carl was] a very generous man, and a very funny man. He had a great, dry sense of humor and he was very kind to everybody.” [The New York Times]
