Dacy Knight

With the rise of girls with big personalities and even bigger social media followings taking to the runway, there's been much debate over whether recent years have been seeing the return of the supermodel. A title once reserved for the queens of the '90s fashion show, supermodel is now a term thrown around to describe any model who's become something of a household name. No matter which side of the debate one stands on, we have to admit there are some striking parallels between the models of the '90s and those today.

During their heyday, supermodels from Naomi Campbell to Kate Moss to Cindy Crawford were just as heavily followed as today's girls—sans Instagram and Snapchat—and the public clung to their every word.

We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day." To take a look back at the parallels between the modeling world of yesteryear and its current social media–driven state, we've rounded up some of the best quotes from '90s supermodels that could have been said today.
