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?

My favorite is Heidi Klum because she an inner beauty that just glows, you can tell she’s normal and loves life. Gisele has a nice long lean body but the face isn’t much. Adrian Lima has an exotic sexiness to her but I don’t see as diverse, she only could do pin up modeling. Kate Moss I think is beautiful but in a weird dirty way. Iman is absolutely naturally gorgeous. She’s like 50 and still looking right. Christing Turlington is a natural beauty. Tyra banks I think has a nice healthy body, nice skin color, nice green eyes but she’s not really a model anymore. The models today are very skinny, and personally I like more T&A and hips. Gemma Ward is really cute though for today’s model.

It’s all about IMAN! She’s beautiful, classy, and timeless. She puts the others to shame. IMAN, IMAN, IMAN…then Cindy, Gisele, and Heidi. Never Tyra, she looks like and alien (but I love America’s Top Model).

Christie Brinkley is flawless STILL after all this time. That is true beauty if it lasts. Tyra doesn’t have the grace. If she would remain quiet, she would be prettier.

Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Niki Taylor. They are all beautiful!

My fav is by far Cindy Crawford!!!!!!!

Sarah on

I would say it’s any of the Victoria’s Secret Angels…they are by far my favorite (Heidi, Gisele, Adrianna etc). They are so poised and gorgeous. They all seem like genuinely wonderful people.

Um, Nadja Auerman and Kirsty Hume anyone? These are true European beauties that are still working and haven’t succumbed to scandal!

I would definitely have to say the natural Corsican beauty, Laetitia Casta. She used to model for VS, Guess, Swarovski, and other companies, but I think she’s since retired from modeling. She is GORGEOUS, nothing fake or contrived about her.

Cindy Crawford – hands down (okay maybe all the models in the FREEDON vid too fyi- George Michael).
