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 Adriana Lima is the most gorgeous of all… Now, Gisele does have an amazing body, Heidi a great personality, and Cindy the all-American charm, but Adriana is just one of those exotic beauties that doesn’t come around very often.


RE: M Renee/Rebecca ,I totally agree with Angie ,I forgot to add UGLY in my comments earlier.
Can you even compare them to beauties like Adriana or Crawford??Dont think so.
Also, Heidi is a sweetheart,lov ya.

I saw only a couple people mentioned Linda Evangelista she is the epitomy of a “supermodel” in my book. She is absolutely beautiful and can pull off any look – she’s amazing. Close second is Christy Turlington also gorgeous.

you have to be kidding me. Tyra Banks?!? she is all attitude and isn’t even that pretty! her show is a joke, she WISHES she was good like Oprah! she has the biggest ego this side of George Clooney! How could Cindy Crawford and her mole not be #1 recoginized model in America? Who did they interview – 13 year olds?!? My fav is still Helena Christensen.

Christy Turlington, Heidi Klum & Niki Taylor! Happy, healthy and beautiful women.
