Since I had some spare time I made some rankings I hope you like them.

First I wanted to know which agency had the most models in the actual Top-75.

Agencies

Top 5:

IMG: ll (2)
Next: ll (2)
Marilyn: l (1)

Top 10:
IMG: llll (4)
Marilyn: llll (4)
Next: ll (2)

Top 20:
IMG llll-l (6)
Marilyn llll (4)
Next lll (3)
Women lll (3)
DNA: ll (2)
Elite: l (1)
Ford: l (1)

Top 50:
IMG llll-llll-llll (14)
Women llll-llll-l (11)
Next llll- (5)
Ford: llll- (5)
Marilyn llll (4)
DNA: llll (4)
Elite: lll (3)
New York Models: ll (2)
Trump: l (1)
Supreme: l (1)

Top 75:
IMG llll-llll-llll-lll (18)
Women llll-llll-llll-ll (17)
DNA: llll-llll (9)
Next llll-lll (8)
Elite: llll-ll (7)
Ford: llll-l (6)
Marilyn llll (4)
New York Models: lll (3)
Trump: l (1)
Supreme: l (1)
Request: l (1)

Fun facts
  • IMG has the most models in the Top-75 (18), followed closely by Women (17). DNA comes in third with 9 models.
  • DNA only has 4 models in the Top-50. The other five are placed at the end of the actual Top-75.
  • The models in the actual Top-10 are all either with IMG, Marilyn or Next models.
  • Even though Marilyn only has 4 models in the top 75, all of those 4 models are in the top 10 as well.
Then I wanted to know how accurate the Models.com rankings really were.

Models.com

Girls that are in the actual top 50 who don’t have a spot on the MDC Top-50 or icons list.
  • Stella Tennant
  • Mengyao Ming Xi
  • Jourdan Dunn
  • Ashley Smith
  • Karolina Kurkova
Girls that are in the MDC Top-50 that aren’t in the actual Top-75:
  • Anna Selezneva (Strange )
  • Arlenis Sosa Pena
  • Sessilee Lopez
  • Tati Cotliar
  • Anna de Rijk
  • Eliza Cummings
  • Chanel Iman
  • Lea T
  • Kinga Rajzak
  • Rose Cordero
  • Zuzanna Bijoch
  • Dorothea Barth Jorgensen
  • Barbara Palvin
  • Dafne Cejas
Overrated by MDC (29)

Of course this has to be taken with a grain of salt, because MDC also takes past achievements into account, hence why Stam, Anna J, etc… are so much higher on MDC than in reality.
  • Jessica Stam (40 spots higher on MDC)
  • Anna Jagodzinska (39 spots higher on MDC)
  • Emily Didonato (39 spots higher on MDC)
  • Shu Pei (38 spots higher on MDC)
  • Julija Steponaviciute (32 spots higher on MDC)
  • Iris Strubegger (27 spots higher on MDC)
  • Siri Tollerod (26 spots higher on MDC)
  • Kirsi Pyrhonen (26 spots higher on MDC)
  • Magdalena Frackowiak (25 spots higher on MDC)
  • Lily Donaldson (23 spots higher on MDC)
  • Caroline Trentini (22 spots higher on MDC)
  • Mirte Maas (22 spots higher on MDC)
  • Maryna Linchuk (21 spots higher on MDC)
  • Miranda Kerr (18 spots higher on MDC)
  • Iselin Steiro (15 spots higher on MDC)
  • Hailey Clouson (14 spots higher on MDC)
  • Hannah Holman (13 spots higher on MDC)
  • Hanne-Gaby Odiele (13 spots higher on MDC)
  • Daphne Groeneveld (11 spots higher on MDC)
  • Natasha Poly (10 spots higher on MDC)
  • Kasia Struss (7 spots higher on MDC)
  • Dree Hemingway (6 spots higher on MDC)
  • Abbey Lee Kershaw (6 spots higher on MDC)
  • Monika Jagaciak (6 spots higher on MDC)
  • Sigrid Agren (5 spots higher on MDC)
  • Sasha Pivovarova (5 spots higher on MDC)
  • Jacquelyn Jablonski (2 spots higher on MDC)
  • Joan Smalls (1 spot higher on MDC)
  • Freja Beha Erichsen (1 spot higher on MDC)

Underrated by MDC (11)
  • Frida Gustavsson (21 spots lower on MDC)
  • Lindsey Wixson (11 spots lower on MDC)
  • Patricia van der Vliet (9 spots lower on MDC)
  • Caroline Brash Nielsen (8 spots lower on MDC)
  • Alessandra Ambrosio (7 spots lower on MDC)
  • Edita Vilkeviciute (5 spots lower on MDC)
  • Eniko Mihalik (4 spots lower on MDC)
  • Arizona Muse (2 spots lower on MDC)
  • Ginta Lapina (2 spots lower on MDC)
  • Karmen Pedaru (1 spot lower on MDC)
  • Anja Rubik (1 spot lower on MDC)

Accurate MDC rankings (5)
  • Lara Stone - #1 on both lists
  • Karlie Kloss - #4 on both lists
  • Constance Jablonski - #6 on both lists
  • Liu Wen - #10 on both lists
  • Heidi Mount - #34 on both lists

Fun facts:
  • Every model in the actual Top-10 is also in MDC’s Top-10, with the exception of Eniko Mihalik (11) and Lindsey Wixson (16)
  • The most underrated models by MDC are Frida Gustavsson (35), Lindsey Wixson (16) and Patricia van der Vliet (46) respectively.
  • The most overrated models by MDC are Jessica Stam (8), Anna Jagodzinska (7) and Emily Didonato (22).
  • There are only five "accurate" MDC rankings.

^ It's based on cold hard facts. There's no subjectivity involved at all, in contrary to the MDC rankings. Just because you don't agree with them doesn't mean they're not accurate.

That's true Nils, thank you so much for your dedication btw... and also thanks to rockangel. I'm amazed by some of the results... I really wasn't expecting Anja at #2 and Natasha so low.. but cold hard facts are cold hard facts after all. I knew it Frida deserved to be higher.

^^^ no such ranking will ever be 100% accurate. There is subjectivity on how to value runway vs. editorial vs. campaign (OG/MG), CK vs Chanel etc. etc. etc.

+ Personally I think it's necessary to take more than one season into account. But that's just me.

But it's cool to have the Top 75 ranking back (even if the list is NOT more accurate than models.com).

i don't know what kind of criteria are used for the ranking but seeing eniko ranks way higher than daria or natalia make me think twice about the accuracy of the ranking. i dont remember eniko scores any major ad (or just ad) this season, while natalie and daria on the other hand have tonnes(guerlain, lancome, salvatore, stefanel, etam, joseph, the list just go on and on).

if u used walking the catwalk as a criteria then it is INVALID to compare daria or natalia to eniko bc these girls dont walk(they just do a few shows here and there). i dotn remember eniko has scored any MAJOR covers(fashion bibles: french vogue, vogue italia, or vogue us). french vogue is 10 times more prestige than something like vogue korea or vogue spain or vogue turkey.

anyway, my point is that models like daria and natalia dont belong to this ranking. quantity is important so does quality. an only girl ed in us vogue is 10 times more prestige than an ed in vogue korea or numero tokyo bc the fan base for vogue us is huge compared to vogue korea, or etc.

i find the top 4 to be accurate but the rest is questionable/arguable.
