Before the 1980s, models were just beautiful people in magazine photographs. People knew very little about them. They didn't know how old they were, where they lived or what their favourite sports were. Most people didn't even know their names.
Then came the 1980s, the era（时代） of the supermodel. This was when some models became so famous that they became as well known as Hollywood film stars. Most people today have heard of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer and the other supermodels. Stories about them appear in magazines. Journalists interview them. Television documentaries have been made about their lives. There are also hundreds of supermodel websites created by fans. On these websites, fans include information about the models' weight, shoe size and hair colour.
One of the reasons these models became so famous was the huge amounts of money they were paid. Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista once said, “I won't get out of bed for less than $10,000 (￡6500) a day.” Claudia Schiffer had a four-year contract （合同） with the cosmetics （化妆品） company Revlon. The company paid her ￡4,000,000 for just thirty days' work per year—that's more than ￡130,000 per day!
Supermodels don't make their money just from posing for the camera or walking down the catwalk. They have discovered many other areas where they can market themselves: films, television shows, exercise videos, calendars, and even the lingerie（女内衣） business. Elle Macpherson has her own underwear company which makes millions of pounds a year.
Supermodels have many other things in common, too. They travel all over the world to work. They own houses and flats in many different places.
