^I think there is a very clear distinction between the top 5 & the top 10. Everyone in the top 10 has major bodies of work in their careers, but the top 5 are reaching into potential icon territory. They get repeat bookings, have big contracts & are the stars of shows & editorials, so I think you're right about Sasha & Natasha. Both of them are pretty much on the same level, & while they won't become #1, they will definitely become icons.

^^ Yeah but getting Vogue eds and covers are like marketing and a campaign is like making the sale, Natasha (who I think is amazing) has been doing a lot of "marketing" with only a few sales to show for it. If Sasha can book the Armani campaign, which is major, along with her other campaigns while only doing "selective" marketing then more power to her.

campaigns are way more prestige than covers. think about it there are not too many campaigns that models can get compared to magazine covers(12 months...). and best of all, campaigns do actually pay lots of money unlike covers and eds.

Men's list update

i can't believe this!

Jacob Coupe and Marlon Teixeira were removed
Charlie Timms debuted at 49
Sebastian Sauve - from 30 to 35
Kim Dall Armi - from 33 to 36
Lenz von Johnston - from 34 to 30
Jamie Wise - from 35 to 34
Benjamin Eidem - from 35 to 33
Jaco van den Hoven - from 36 to 38
Adrian Bosch - from 38 to 41
Malthe Lund Madsen - from 41 to 43
Paul Boche - from 48 to 47
Charlie France - from 49 to 50
Diego Miguel - from 50 to 48

i really don't get why these guys are out! i know their work isn't top 10 worthy but compared to the rest of the list is pretty similar,
they're regular in eds (at least for a male model) and Marlon has got more than a few covers recently, he's the spokesmodel of a Diesel fragance and is in the holiday ads of Armani Exchage while Jacob is in the latest Zara lookbook..
so please someone explain it to me!!!

the other changes are so random and pointless, they moved like 2 or 3 places

absolutely ridiculous. Marlon is one of THE most famous and lusted after male models working today. he might not be in blue chip campaigns all the time, but surely they gotta measure the men slightly differently. he is definitely earning more money and has more exposure than 85% of the rest of the guys on that list. it's absurd that he has been removed.

I'm big fan of Marlon but this what i going to say is completely objective,Marlon should be in top 20.He did more ad campaigns then most of those models from top 50 and wont even going to talk about covers.He was on so many covers this year.
I really don't get the way how MDC ranks the male models.

OK, Melissa Tammerjin seriously needs to be in the top 50 now. She got Jaeger & Gucci Fiat this season. Thats better than alot of girls still on the list.

^I think Dior is just rumours because she opened the show. I would love it if it's true though.

if she ever gets a blue chip campaign like dior it will put her right on the map. rag&bone and tommy are just blah blah. there are literally a million models in those campaigns and nobody pay attention.

KK used to be the #1 model, so if she were to be on any list, it should be the icon list

^i believe valliaddict and the original poster about the DK, dior etc campaigns was referring to karolina?

i think to avoid the confusion people (not just in this thread, but in general) need to stop referring to karlie as KK lol
