Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell have rolled back the years to reunite for a classy 90s throwback shoot.

The supermodels have been solid pals since the 90s, and famously teamed up to launch Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) in 1996. The shoot saw them pose in white T-shirts with bullseye targets across their chests – the message couldn’t have been any clearer.

Ralph Lauren founded FTBC in 1994 after losing a friend to breast cancer. In recruiting Moss and Campbell for the initiative, he secured two of the most famous faces to ever grace the catwalk.

Now, 20 years on and with more than £35 million raised, the pair are back together for FTBC with Mario Testino on picture duties with a stunning monochrome shoot. (Patrick Demarchelier shot the 1996 originals).

“It’s great to be returning to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer on this very special anniversary year,” said Moss in a rare public statement.

“Since its UK launch in 1996, when I first appeared in the campaign poster, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has gone on to impact so many lives by funding vital research into this devastating disease.”

Campbell added that she has experienced how devastating breast cancer can be in the years since the original shoot.

“I never could have expected back in 1996 that I would go on to experience first-hand the harrowing effect this disease can have on individuals, families, and loved ones,” she said. “For the last 20 years, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has united us all – scientists, models, designers, mothers, photographers, retailers – as a powerful force against the disease. That’s two decades of incredible support for cutting-edge breast cancer research.”

If you need further proof of Moss and Campbell’s unbreakable friendship, below is a reminder from their Stand Up To Cancer Gogglebox special in 2014, which also featured an imperiously sarcastic performance from Noel Gallagher.
