Peter Lindbergh's "Models" features supermodels Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington, Estelle Lefébure, Karen Alexander and Rachel Williams for Vogue US on the beach in Los Angeles in 1990.
These models were the epitome of the era of the supermodel. Evangelista famously told Vogue that she and Turlington wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.
Created during an era when fashion photography meant meeting standards of beauty through retouching, Lindbergh felt it was the responsibility of photographers to "free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection." It was considered so avant-garde, that Vogue decided it couldn't publish "Models" at the time.
Estimated at £60,000-80,000, this print sold for £81,250 (118,462 USD), a new auction record for this subject by the photographer.
