Who's Your Favorite Model?

12/27/2006 at 01:30 PM ET

When you think of supermodels, who pops into your mind? According to WWD, Manhasset, N.Y.-based Marketing Evaluations Inc. has found that Tyra Banks is actually the most recognized model to the American public. Number two on the list is Cindy Crawford, now 40, and 52-year old Christie Brinkley rounds out the top three — hardly the nubile teens that grace the pages of today’s fashion magazines. Check out any newsstand, and you’re more likely to see Daria Werbowy hawking Lancome or Gemma Ward in Prada, but Tyra’s successful America’s Next Top Model series and talk show have made her a household name. Others on this list: Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Heidi Klum, Rachel Hunter, Gisele Bundchen, and Christy Turlington. Tell us: Who’s your favorite model? Who is the ultimate supermodel to you?

I think the only true super-model out there is Iman. She is graceful, dignified, drop dead gorgeous and never looks trashy. The rest of the gang are just models, but Iman is a step above the rest!

heidi Klum is my fav, she seems like a normal person. Although she doens’t look like one. she embraces her family she has a good man in Seal and her family is as diverse as you can get.
She doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously but i also think she is classy.

I love Ms. Tyra but my favorite supermodel of all time is Christie Turlington. She is still so beautiful! I like Heidi Klum too.. I agree with the comment at the top.. I love that she is family oriented. She has such a sweet little family. :)

Well, Debrah=]. i think that Tyra is a great role model b.c. she is a supermodel and has cellulite, which isnt badd, and is not even that skinny,and doesnt even have plastic surgery which isnt bad either =/. And i love Heidi!

I think Tyra is amazing! She is not only absolutely beautiful on the outside but she appears to be equally beautiful on the inside as well. She is making a sincere effort to represent women in a positive way and prove that one can be a successful model without being rake thin with an eating disorder…and for that I applaud her! Go Tyra…you are my favorite!!!!!
