While Kaia Gerber may be the breakout model of Fashion Month, don’t count the OG supermodels out anytime soon. After an epic reunion of ’90s supers at the Versace show last week, there was another moment of model nostalgia at Balmain’s Spring 2018 show.

Tapping some of the top supermodels of the 2000s along with a few select Victoria’s Secret Angels, Olivier Rousteing assembled a new Balmain army on the runway today in Paris. After Natalia Vodianova opened the show, Natasha Poly, Karolina Kurkova, and Kasia Struss followed suit down the catwalk—making for the ultimate early ’00s throwback.
