At this point models.com should creat a ranking apart for Kendall, Gigi and so on. They don't belong to the New Supers and they didn't belong to the Top 50 neither in my opinion. Their careers can't be compared to those of regulars models/supers. They should create a ranking called "The Influencers" or something like that and include all the girls who made it to modelling due to their social media presence (which is mentioned in the description of both Kendall and Gigi in the new supers by the way) and include Kendall, Gigi, Bella, Cara, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Rata and so on. I know they have a social ranking but that is just about the number of followers, I mean a ranking with girls who are influencers on social medias and book jobs thanks to that too.

Alessandra on icons and not Adriana... that's something i can't explain. Both deserve it, but Adriana invented Alessandra.

Adriana's in New Supers, and I don't think I've seen someone on Industry Icons and New Supers at the same time.

I'm not mad at Gigi/Bella/Hailey all on Money Girls, like it or not they're raking in big bucks. Is Kendall not on Money Girls? And she's the one bringing in the most money... but a lot of that is from KUWTK, so I guess I don't blame them.

I don't think that's considered in making the list.

^ I doubt it, but unlike Gigi, Bella, and Hailey, modeling might not be her main source of income.

I found more girls that I know were recently deleted from the Money Girls list, if someone could verify if they were just taken off during the recent changes on the rankings that would be great:
Cora Emmanuel
Sigrid Agren (almost positive she was taken off the list before the recent changes, but could be wrong)
Jacquelyn Jablonski
Nadja Bender
Tilda Lindstam

They recently added Stella Maxwell to Money Girls, don't think that was recorded yet.

This may be a reach, but maybe the icons for Top 50 and Hot List on the general full list of rankings page could be an indication for them moving up a ranking? If we go back to post 111, Gigi was the icon for Top 50 (now Money and Supers) and Faretta was the icon for Hot List (now Top 50). Currently, Taylor Hill is the icon for Top 50 and Kris Grikaite is the icon for the Hot List...

Ik... what I meant is that she should only be on the Icons list, the establishment ones, next to Alessandra and girls from her generation... not on the supers next to Cara and Kendall. She's so out of place there.

It's been said before, but MDC rankings are heavily biased toward certain agencies. You can figure out which ones. And I suspect that girls will be taken off and added on its dozens of lists based on what those agencies tell MDC in terms of which girls the agencies would like promoted and which ones they're OK with being removed. There were certainly girls who were recently on the Hot List who barely did anything. You look at that list now and it's stunning how some of them could ever be seen as up and rising, while other newbies who are getting campaigns, editorials in various Vogues, and walk in big shows are not on it. It's obvious MDC shills for a handful of agencies and ignores others.

I think this could all be simplified if MCD would elaborate on their definition of what a Super is versus an Icon. I get it though.

New Supers

Supermodels: The Next Generation! While the 90s era stars are still going strong there is a whole new crop of top models pushing into the public sphere and changing the industry as we know it. This group of social media savvy, creative and conscious beauties is redefining what it means to be a top model. Covers and campaigns are still a part of the equation, but they donít tell the whole story. Social media impact, media attention both in and outside of fashion and the support of major photographers all factor in when separating the models from the supermodels.

Some of the important factors looked at for this list include:

- Media presence in and outside of the fashion industry and/or significant Social media following
- Consistent top tier editorial work with high profile photographers & stylists
- Must have at least one recent long term contract with fashion or beauty brand


Based on their criteria, Gigi and Kendall are definitely the new supers. If anyone on the list doesn't belong it is Natasha Poly. Her presence outside of the fashion world is minimal at best. She fits much better with the girls on the icon list. Adriana also doesn't belong because she's a legend. She's had one of the most remarkable careers in the history of modeling.

Also bugs me Sasha P. is listed as a new generation icon, she should be a part of the establishment.

I wish that MDC would go back to the way it used to be. All of these rankings are just making it all just so super messy. Have something like top 20 legend/supermodel list, top 40 icons, top 50 models, and top 30 hot list, and ranked based on work like it used to be.

I don't understand why Adriana can't be considered a new super. The girl has had an extraordinary career.
