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 am suprised that Adriana from Victoria Secret did not make the list. She is everywhere lately and has a unique look. Kate Moss makes models everywhere look like trash. I guess there is no such thing as bad publicity.

Niki Taylor who is gorgous and has a glow to her .and now with a more nuetral aspect since the accident she is one that I hope can come back in the market.

Anybody but Tyra is awesome. I hate how the woman thinks that she knows everything, she acts like she is a psychiatrist, and if you have ever noticed no matter what she turns the subject back on to her. I don’t know about anyone else, but I have had enough of Tyra!

I think that Iman, Crawford, Brinkley, and Turlington are all beautiful and graceful women. However, to me I think that Tyra is a great role-model. She’s got curves, cellulite, and she’s real which makes her seem approachable..and she’s successful. Heidi is also great, she’s real too and she’s successful.

Iman is #1 definitely!….Gisele is 2nd for me…that girl does some impossible poses…I keep trying but my body just won’t go there..lol

I do like Argentinians Yamilia Diaz and Valeria Mazza but even though valeria looks beautiful still with blonde hair i think i would like it more if she was brunette.

I think that Izabel Goulart is hot. I also love Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima they have that supermodel look that everyone adores.

My personal favorites would have to be Gisele and Iman. Iman is so classic and Gisele is just jaw-dropping gorgeous.

Christy Turlington–100%. I had the chance to meet her years ago in Chicago when she was signing autographs for Calvin Klein. She was even more beautiful (if possible) in person, and she was as intelligent and friendly as she was beautiful. L-O-V-E her!

RE: RONAK That was a very ridiculious thing you said about Tyra being too fat to be a supermodel. She is beautiful and I sure don’t see a blog talking about ‘RONAK’ now do we?
