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?

From the 70’s Cheryl Teggs or Carole Bouquet.
From the 80’s Chritie Brinkley or Iman.
From the 90’s Christy Turlington or Niki Taylor.
From the now Gisele Bundchen or Heidi Klum.

But, I have always found Milla to be very interesting as well.

I think Tyra is very beautiful, I like her cause she seems real and can be really silly at times… She is not real skinny, and i think that’s a good thing bc some model are so skinny they look anorexic

Tyra Banks is definately my favorite super model. She is beautiful, a smart businesswoman, and seems very compassionate. As for the comment made by Ronak about Tyra being too fat, if you haven’t noticed, real women have curves, and Tyra Banks is a great representitive of that. She is #1, no contest.

Does anyone remember Cheryl Tiegs? I always thought of her as having “the girl next door” look. Anyway, they are all beautiful.

I personally think Tyra is the ugliest model I’ve ever seen! I don’t know how she was ever a model! My favorite model is either Gisele Bundechen or Adriana Lima! Or, any of the Victoria’s Secret models!
