Christy Turlington shared a Met Gala throwback pic alongside fellow models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in honor of the postponed event, which would have occurred May 4. The supermodel shared the shot from 1995, a time when the annual event was a much more “relaxed” affair, as she wrote in the caption.
In the photo, Christy, Kate, and Naomi — three of the most famous supermodels in the history of the industry — posed together in outfits that are decidedly different than what is worn for today’s gala, a $35,000 per ticket event that requires months of outfit pre-planning.
Christy is seen on the left, wearing a sleek black long-sleeved dress. The garment had a deep v-neck, cut almost down below the model’s breasts, showing off her décolletage. Her hair was blown out into a straight and sleek style, framing her face and falling down onto her chest.
Next to Christy is Naomi, who looked like a diva in a silver strapless dress designed by Gianni Versace. The side illusion panel ran down the entire length of the garment and gave a glimpse at Naomi’s skin from the side of her breasts down past her hips. Her hair was blown out straight and pushed to the side in a dramatic side-swept part.
Kate rounded out the threesome photo. She wore a cream-colored dress that was very low cut. It had a straight top cut across her breasts and a shoulder strap that encircled her upper arm, ending at the top of the dress and leaving her back completely exposed. The photo captured the supermodel’s Met Gala debut, where she turned heads in the Calvin Klein stunner. Her hair was blown out straight on top and had soft waves falling onto her shoulders.

Happy Birthday Beauty @katemossagency Grateful for the memories and all the laughs. Pinched this clip from “Catwalk” which documents some of the outtakes of our actual adventures from the early 90’s when we were inseparable. You have had quite a life, Wagon. I hope you have your best year yet! ❤️
Fans loved the vintage photo and the opportunity to see how the Met Gala once was, before it became the over-the-top glam event of the year. They shared their feelings about the women’s overall look in the comments section.
“And THAT is when the Met Ball WAS the Met Ball,” remarked one follower.
“You ladies were the real models of the ’80s. The models of today can never replace you,” a second fan claimed.
“Back then.. toned down… simple…and elegant,” wrote a third user.
“How fun and natural! The way forward for 2021!” a fourth person exclaimed, who seemingly hopes a trend towards a more simple Met Gala style occurs for next year’s event.
