Currency Design : American Supermodels
  • Supermodel Currency¬†
    Currency Redesign Project
  • The term "Super Model" refers to a highly-paid fashion model who usually has a worldwide reputation and often a background in haute couture and commercial modeling. In 1979, model Janice Dickinson claimed to have coined the term "supermodel" as a compound of Superman and model. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson stated that her agent Monique Pilar of Elite Model Management asked her "Janice, who do you think you are, Superman?" She replied saying "No... I'm a supermodel, honey, and you will refer to me as a supermodel and you will start a supermodel division."

    On this currency redesign project you will see the highest paid American Model on the $100 bill and it works down from that.
