The Fashion Spot Models Top 40 F.K.A. Top 75
I was bored last week and decided to do my own rankinglist of the best models in the industry. I thought I might as well post it here and I hope that someone will apprecaite my hard work :p Here's what I did, I constructed a point-system which gives the girls a certain ammount of points for a certain job. For instance, a Vogue Italia cover is 40 points and a campaign for Prada with more than one girl would be 35 points, etc etc (if you wanna see the whole point-system, PM me)
So then I decided that the work of the 4 past months should be incorporated, so I looked for every magazine in our Magazines section from August to November, searched for the reviews or scans and see what models are in or on it and then give the girls points. Same for all the F/W 0708 ads and runway showlists. After a LOT of work, I combined the points for August, September, October, November, FW 0708 ads and SS 08 runway and came to the following conclusions for November. For a December list, all the August points will disappear and the December ones will added, etcetera. Oh and I decided to do 75 girls, because 50 girls didn't cover some girls that I thought needed to be on a list such as this one and 100 would've been too much (plus the MDC top 50 has 74 models on the list, so yeah)

I hope this will start some discussion or something...on things that happen to stand out (like Coco is number one and not Gemma or Sasha, or that the highest ranked non-caucasian is ranked at only 41, everyone is Russian, or whatever :p )

This is a really cool idea...I agree with mostly everyone on your list except for where you placed Chanel Iman. How can she be beating Angela Lindvall and Julia Stegner?

^ Chanel simply worked more. This is a list that leaves out status and focuses purely on what work the models did. As you can see Doutzen Kroes is ranked at 30, while she is ranked at 3 on the MDC Top 50. She might be a topmodel and one of the biggest of this moment with the Loreal contract, but she barely did any editorial work these past few months for the big magazines. She didn't do any runway as well. So that places her so low. Same with Angela and Julia.

PS this is an objective list...my opinion on these girls has nothing to with it (otherwise it would've completely different, trust me :p

ETA: If your favorite is missing from the top 75, and you want to know where she's ranked then please ask

I am just happy my favorite girls made the list. And go Raquel.

frankly though, I am surprised Kim ranked that high. I never see her in editorials

Coco in first place ? Maybe I haven't been keeping up with Coco enough to realize how great it is to see her in first.

Great job, Mr. Dale! This list is very accurate and well-thought out.

Generally speaking (and I truly don't mean this in an offensive way to you, Mr. Dale), it's a bit sad that there's only one model on the whole list who's black (and she's not even fully black). IMO, it embodies how fashion has such little diversity.

Hilary should be lower than Doutzen, who recently did a spread for US Vogue's Fashion Fund Finalists.

No Lily C?
