Haute Couture Models
There are several models out there who solely or most prominently seem to limit their runwaywork to the haute couture shows. Or they only seem to be popular among the couture houses. They're what you might call the last survivors of the salon models who were nothing but couture models. This thread for their appreaciation and also for the appreciation of those oldschool couture or salon models.

One girl that comes to mind is Anna Chyzh (Next)



Christian Dior S/S 07 Haute Couture | Valentino S/S 08 Haute Couture

Another girl is Alexandra Agoston-O'Connor (Next) Although she does do the rtw seasons she never is any big shows except for Dior and Galliao. During the couture week, suddenly all the big guys can't wait to book her:



Jean Paul Gaultier S/S 08 Haute Couture | Christian Lacroix S/S 06 Haute Couture

Then there is Agnes Zogla (Next) She has only appeared in Valentino shows and is apparantly one of his most recent muses. She was in his last RTW show, but sadly not in the S/S 08 couture show.



Valentino S/S 06 Haute Couture | Valentino F/W 06.07 Haute Couture

Ahh I must've overlooked her! Thanks Spiral...

Here is Anna Chyzh getting some heavy appreciation by Valentino near the end of the video:

I didn't know he loved her so much that she is actually 'allowed' to get her picture taken with Valentino, Eva and Claudia

I've noticed that too Mr. Dale.

Some models who aren't regularly featured in the prominant rtw shows (Chanel, Gucci and Versace), but are usually at Haute courture shows are:

1) Milagros Schmoll: She's always at Jaul Paul Gaultier, she was in the perfume commercial so I think JPG loves her. She's also at Dior Haute Couture.
2) Patricia Schmid : Same as above
3) Lisa Cant is usually at Haute Couture shows for Chanel, and at Chanel Resort, it seems Karl likes her ethereal look.
4) All designers, Haute Couture or otherwise, love having Natasha Poly model their designs.
5) Melody Woodin, again for Dior.

^Yup, they seem to be 'housemodels'...just like Agnes for Valentino. However, I think you are mistaking Milagros for Morgane, because Milagros has never been in a Dior couture show

I would say Ai Tominaga is gradually becoming strictly a haute couture model, although she does appear in the rare RTW show.

Christian Dior HC S/S 08 and Elie Saab HC F/W 07.08:

Nowadays, it seems more and more like it, for Ai T.

Isn't Morgane Galliano's fitting model?
She always looks so spectacular in his shows

Yup! One of them In one of those vids on Dior.com about the creation of the FW0708 couture collection we see Morgane, Viviane Orth and another girl who I think is Yevgeniya Kedrova as his fitting models. And in the FW 0708 Galliano show video, we see bits of the fitting of that collection and there we see Morgane as well!
