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?

Tyra is too fat to be a supermodel,
I believe the ultimate supermodels are Claudia Schiffer, Gisele Bundchen and Cindy Crawford.
Good that Tyra is finally out of Victoria’s Secret.
Hey,Adriana is hot too.

gisele bundchen is my favorite model because she is so down to earth!

I enjoy Heidi’s personality and poise. She is a beautiful woman. Beautiful because she loves her job, her family, and herself. She is an excellent example of a woman who can have a high demand job and still be a wife and mother. She loves kids, she loves clothes. I admire and respect her for her loving heart and her post-baby strut on the cat walk.

Hands down Heidi klum. She’s an inspiration on how a person juggles personal and private life with public. She shows what real love is and then she still makes it to a catwalk after giving birth with an amazing body. She’s sweet, polite and everything a supermodel not diva should be…humble.

What about Cindy Crawford? :)

Tyra is beautiful. She is a supermodel and a great one at that, although I think my favorite super model of all times has to be Christie Brinkley. She is just a timeless beauty.

Definately Heidi Klum and Gisele. They are both gorgeous but do not let their beauty over come them and turn them into stuck up people like some models out there. I agree that Heidi Klum is ‘the Body’ more so than Elle MacPherson.

I like Heidi Klum and Christy Turlington. They both seem like normal people and don’t let being a supermodel go th their head.

I just love Tyra, she’s a positive role model, she let’s us women know that we dont have to have that caucasin look of being so thin that we could be related to the starving children in Africa. Beauty is not just on the outside it glows from within and she shows that when she tells you and shows you how she looks without all that makeup. All those models have touchups on their photos, none are as beautiful in person as their photos appears. And yes she has a little meat on her and yes she has extra hair, but she wears it well! They are all beautiful in their own way and shouldnt be compared to each other!

I agree with Sana, IMAN is the ideal supermodel, graceful, classy and still beautiful inside and out.
