Can you name all the supermodels on the new Vanity Fair cover? One is married to a French politician, another was in the film American Gigolo

The new splashy cover for a few overseas editions of Vanity Fair debuted on Monday.

And there was a treasure trove of A-list household names from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

The magazine featured some of the biggest supermodels the world has ever seen (somehow they managed to get iconic 60s siren Twiggy to pose).

And the ladies not only still look amazing, but they have gone on to extend their mega careers beyond the catwalk. One of the ladies runs a massive skincare company and then there is that action film star who has a tentpole franchise worth big bucks.

And they have made headlines too for the men they have been linked to: One is married to a former French president, another dated Axl Rose from Guns N’ Roses, and one starred in American Gigolo with Richard Gere (another was married to Gere for several years). 

Can you name all the pretty faces?
