The Supers are back and better than ever! Industry legends Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista have reunited for the first time since the ’90s to lend their gorgeous faces to fellow supermodel Doutzen Kroes’ new charitable campaign with the Elephant Crisis Fund.

The supermodel Holy Trinity, Campbell, 46, Turlington, 47, and Evangelista, 51, have joined forces (something they haven’t done in decades!) to show their support for Elephant Crisis Fund global ambassador and model Kroes’ new campaign, #KnotOnMyPlanet, in a gorgeous black-and-white ad, which was shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier.

“Having their support truly means everything to me,” Kroes tells PeopleStyle. “They were three of the most vocal advocates in the industry in the fight against AIDS and to raise awareness for HIV awareness, so that they would choose this as a cause to rally behind is incredible.”

And Kroes says it’s even more special considering how much she looked up to the trio as a teen, and still does.

“The first time I saw Linda, Christy and Naomi was in the music video for George Michael’s ‘Freedom ’90.’ I think like most people who saw the video then, as well as now, is that they were so individual in their femininity,” Kroes tells PeopleStyle. “However, when I first fell in love with them was when I saw that they were using their celebrity to champion social causes they were passionate about.”

But bringing the gang back together wasn’t all Kroes’ idea — it was Evangelista’s!

“I would love to take credit for the shoot, but I can’t,” Kroes confesses. “I’m not sure who exactly thought of it, but I’m sure it was Linda! When she heard about #KnotOnMyPlanet she didn’t hesitate to not get involved — and no one really says ‘no’ when Linda calls!”

Which is why when Evangelista rang her fellow Supers, they didn’t hesitate to join the cause, which pays homage to elephants’ memories and raises funding for the mammals’ protection.

“While we do see each other outside of work, we haven’t done a trinity shot in forever,” Evangelista tells PeopleStyle. “Being with our whole team — the wonderful Patrick Demarchelier photographed us, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele created the concept, hair by Oribe, makeup by Fulvia and design by Pascal Dangin — felt like a family reunion.”
