The Super Models explores the rise to fame of the world's first supermodels.

The official synopsis for the documentary reads: "The Super Models travels back to the 1980s, when four women from different corners of the world united in New York. Already forces in their own right, the gravitas they achieved by coming together transcended the industry itself.

"Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to supersede the brands they showcased, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda and Christy as prominent as the designers who styled them.

"Today, the four supermodels remain on the frontlines of culture through activism, philanthropy and business prowess. As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself — and women's roles within it — this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to claim it, paving the way for those to follow."

The Super Models trailer

The trailer for The Super Models was released by Apple TV+ in early September and has amassed 3.7 million views on YouTube.

In the trailer, Campbell reveals how brands would pick her for runway shows, but not for their magazine covers. "I wasn't going to be bullied for the colour of my skin," she says.

The Super Models is available to stream on Apple TV+ on Wednesday 20th September. Sign-up for Apple TV+ for £6.99.
