There’s a new show about ’80s supermodels, and we’re obsessed with who’s making it
I’ll give you a moment. Have you guessed who is spearheading this show yet? It’s Cindy Crawford, of course. Who better to give us the (fictionalized) scoop on what it was like to be a supermodel in the ’80s than the iconic ’80s supermodel herself?
Entertainment Weekly confirms that the show, tentatively titled Icon, will appear on NBC and depict the war between Ford Modeling Agency and Elite Model Management. These agencies, and their past rivalry, are real, but beyond that the show is fiction. That said, we are still gearing up for the series to reveal the underlying ugliness of a world that is so often glamorized. No real names will be used, so we don’t have to worry about starting any #drama. Oh also, the show will be written by Robin Bissell, the executive producer of The Hunger Games. So yeah, you can expect this show to be pretty good.
If you’re not super familiar with Crawford, let me get you caught up. She burst onto the fashion scene in the ’80s, along with people like Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christie Brinkley, Brooke Shields, Elle Macpherson, and Christy Turlington. She’s like, the face of fashion, even Cher from Clueless wants to be her!
We won’t get a glimpse of Crawford in the series, but we will get a glimpse of what life was like for her growing up in this crazy era and super crazy scene. It’s not a retelling or an adaptation, just a recreation of a world we’ve all been dying to get a peek inside. While Crawford’s success has afforded her roles in TV and movies before, this is her debut as a television producer, which begs the question: What can’t this woman do?
