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 love Tyra…but she doesn’t do much these days besides her shows. My favorite models now are Adrianna Lima and Gisele.

Heidi is beautiful and classy, and I think she would be fun to hang out with, but if I’m flipping through a magazine, I want to see Gisele in the ads. She’s such a unique beauty!!

I’ve always loved Cindy Crawford. She has a great body without being super skinny.

My favorite has to be Kate Moss. She’s very original and different from all of the other supermodels.

i gotta go old school w/this question and go w/who i grew up seeing–naomi, christy, cindy, claudia, and linda…the ORIGINAL supermodels.
heidi is great as well.

I’ll go with Iman. Lately Tyra has been getting on my nerves making EVERYTHING about herself. Even on America’s Next Top Model (which I LOVE) she seems out of control and starved for attention. It’s like watching a train wreck.

i like Heidi I thik she really cute!!! But I gotta show my girl Tyra sum love too.

OK does anyone watch ANTM? I do and im not a fan of Tyra. My point… She ALWAYS stands sideways when she is in the judging room!! Its so annoying!! Like i get that you gained weight and weigh the same as a normal person now that you retired, but standing sideways does not help!!!

Wow! I can’t believe how these people are actually saying how ugly and fat tyra is! I don’t know how anyone can be so harsh. If tyra is fat then I would like to see what you guys think is fat! hands down Tyra is my favorite just becasue she is down to earth and beautiful!
