I would have thought of Versace being one of the bigger shows in Milan.

LOL. I thought Ralph Lauren would be in the top 5 of New York too but then again I'm not sure, I know the big shows but I don't where they'd be ranked

Again, that one came in sixth :p

And PS: This Top 75 completely excludes girls like Gisele, Amber, Linda, Claudia, Carolyn, Naomi, Carmen, etc....

I don't think you should count up-coming work, I think the list should pertain to what they "have" done, because who knows what another girl has up-coming, as not all news makes it to the net, and really it's in limbo, e.g. Egle was supposed to be in Gianfranco Ferre ads, and Freja got, and Karlie was supposed to be on the cover of Teen Vogue, but Chanel and Ali Michael were also on it. Also hype shouldn't be worth more than Victoria secret appearance or a cover of lets say Vogue Greece, because the latter is substantial whereas not everyone "gets" the hype, and a girl can be over-rated, hype doesn't really exist in the world the same way as a cover does, for example how do you gauge hype? Who had more hype Catherine or Georgia? You can't really compare, the way you can compare a Vogue India cover with a Vogue Portugal cover, models live for covers and contracts not hype. Only my opinions though, compared to other lists this one certainly is brilliant.

I've been rethinking the upcoming work thing as well...in fact I don't even remember giving points for it more than twice...thanks for pointing that out.

I think hype is worth more than the VS show and definetly noteworthy in a list like this. VS shows don't really improve your popularity under high fashion clients, but do increase your popularity under the public. Hype has no effect on the public, but has huge effect on high fashion clients and us as well. Girls that got points for hype this past runway season are Siri, Meghan and Toni (I forgot if I gave it to Adina, I don't think I did). Siri was bound to all the shows even before the castings started and it came true. For Meghan the same thing counted as all the internet sources went carzy on her before showseason. However, her success stayed behind on the runway BUT it got true in printwork. Toni generated a huge buzz after her CK thingy...Thusfar, I only have one candidate to get hype points for coming season and that is Abbey Lee Kershaw, as industry insiders such as MDC and COACD would prob agree with.

There's not really anyone but Abbey getting any hype. MDC has reported that Nadia De Haan seems to be a potential star, same with Fabienne but I'm not sure we can go by MDC. I also read on the clotheshorse blog that Zuzanna @ Supreme is an option for the Prada opening slot. Just giving my two cents

Looking at how the whole ranking system works, I've really got to hand it to you, Mr-Dale! I think that your system is much better than the one at MDC and you've done a great job of organizing all these models.

The graphic rankings are gorgeous as well!

I need your advice for next month's list. As I said September is left out of the counting for January which already stirs the list up quite drastically...but my dilemma concerns the ads. Do you think I should leave out the points for the FW 0708 campaign and count only SS 08 campaigns, even if they are not yet published. Or should I still count the FW 0708 campaigns and add the SS 08 campaigns that have been published already (or also those that have not been)....or perhaps there are other options?

I am asking this because the sudden transition from FW 0708 to SS 08 has extreme effects already on the list and leaving out September adds to that. Plus, January has a lot of doublemonth issues (Dec/Jan) which have already been given in December...so there will be no huge ammounts of points given out to make up for the loss of September (the wait is still on VI of course). I just want the transition to be more smoothly instead of so drastic. Perhaps I should still count September but then only half of those points as an exception? I'm grateful for every feedback

Ok, I have done some tests and I think that I am most satisfied about a smooth transition when I add the SS 08 campaigns that are out already onto the FW 0708 ad-points. I'll do the same for Feb and then in March when the first new runwaypoints will be out I'll delete the FW 0708 ads from the counting and add the full SS 08 list.
