I'd say there are plenty to choose from ... editors, retailers, designers, critics. Like Anna Wintour, Linda Fargo, Miuccia Prada, Suzy Menkes, Cathy Horyn ...

^Are models (not supermodels) that influential though? It is not the same as being successful after all. Models are to be molded into roles invented by others.

There is a new model who looks like BB every year tbh.

Very few, I would say. I think Kate Moss and Christy Turlington Burns are both influential.

^Yes, I tried to make it clear that supermodels are influentical (compared to regular models). I am never going to argue that Kate isn't influential... 80% of my wardrobe is how it is because how her Kate has also been on Time 100: The Most influential list (2007).

I think Times makes an annual "Fashion top 100 most influential people".

They made an all-time fashion icons list (it includes some men--and Sara Blakely ): http://content.time.com/time/special...110513,00.html

Liu Wen I think is also very influential, revolutionized Asian women in fashion and is also a pioneer in the Instagram model scene.

There should be a thread about the most influential models of 2015 as well. I don't think models (not supermodels) are as influential as the people you don't see by a longshot, but they are so much more interesting to follow...

^Those two last ones are completely foreign to me. Are they supermodels in some part of the world?

I don't believe they're models at all ... I think they're primarily consumers of fashion, street-style stars, and also some involvement in the business of fashion, is my impression.

They are not models...

Dasha Zhukova, former EIC of Pop, now has her own magazine Garage. Co-founded her own fashion label. On board of the LACMA. Friend of Miuccia Prada. She also has a large art empire.

Miroslava Duma, founder of Buro 24/7. Worked for Harper's Bazaar. Digital media director of TSUM, the biggest high fashion retailer in Russia.

Both are street style phenomenons.
Both come from wealthy families.
Both are involved in charity.
Both are married to millionaire/billionaire husbands.
Both are always sitting front row at the biggest shows.
Both have more than a million followers on Instagram.

Some of these also apply to Lena Perminova.

Just because you don't know them doesn't mean they're not influential. I'd say both have bright futures in the fashion industry.

Of course people I am not familiar with can be very influential! Their names were given under a quote about supermodels. I find it unlikely that there are many (super)models with a great influence that are not well known... That's what I found confusing. But now I know who they are
