More than 20 years after taking the modelling world by storm, Canadian Linda Evangelista has signed up to be the new face of Prada.
Still beautiful at the age of 43, Linda, who once declared she "didn't get out of bed for less than $10,000", will front the Italian fashion house's autumn/winter collection.
And the mother-of one is not the only original supermodel still very much in vogue.
Starring in the latest Yves Saint Laurent campaign is British beauty Naomi Campbell, 38, while Christy Turlington, who is one year older, is the most recent face of fashion brand Escada.
Baby of the group is German blonde Claudia Schiffer. At 37, she is modelling for Italian label Salvator Ferragamo.
"Time makes them more interesting," said Chanel's iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld. "They are, and stay, irreplaceable."
