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?

Personally, I think Tyra is beautiful but she has become somewhat of a joke. She’s admitted that the way she acts on ANTM is just an act, and her talk show is ridiculous… she focuses on herself during every show… she puts on a fat suit or pretends to be homeless for a day and all she can say is how much it affected HER while the people who are going through it are sitting around her and comforting her, just so she can go back to her palatial mansion and be perfect again.
That was my rant… I like Iman, mostly because she’s married to David Bowie ;) … Elle MacPherson is beautiful too.

I like Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks.

Tyra, natural – don’t think so. She wants to be a white woman. Never understood that. She should be herself, she has a pretty face and nice curves, and that is ok, but she tries too hard, I’ve had enough. Her American Top Model show is ok -she keeps away enough, but her appearances at the elimination is just too much, sometimes she looks like a clown or an alien. Heidi is tops and Gisele too – those legs!

Kate Moss is my favourite model, apart from her personal life which is questionable of late, her look is always one step ahead of everyone, she is bohemian and looks good in almost any look, she is constantly changing with the times, although not necessarily beautiful she has a look that is timeless, down to her bone structure and frame. She carries clothes very well.

My second choice would be Iman and then Linda Evangelista, love her.


I also like Petra Nemkova-Czech Rep Flavia De Oliviera-Brazil Warris Dirrie -Somalia Liya Kebeda-Ethiopia
