I know that Joan's #4 placement is controversial, but I think what some people said is kinda true. For a black model to receive the type of work she has been getting is pretty impressive. The stakes for her are always going to be higher than the white models. I remember once Tyra said in an interview that being a black model is no easy feat, they really have to fight to get work and the discrimination is always there. Plus she's a Latina. Latinas rarely make it in high fashion. Her ranking may be a bit high, but it is quite deserved. At least that's what I think.

Jourdan's only blue chip campaigns that I can ever remeber are Burberry twice and YSL Cosmetics once, which she was not under a beauty contract. Two years ago, Jourdan probably should have been higher than Chanel or Sessilee, but none of them have acheived what Joan has.

I think the ranking is getting better though, probably because of all you people's suggestions, haha.
The people who do the Top 50 women's rankings aren't on tFS at all
It is actually funny because, the rankings handled by people who do visit tFS are generally the ones that never get mentioned here. We get no love!

RE: Jourdan, yes she should have something coming out soon.

I work directly with Top Sexiest, in addition to handling several other things on the site outside of the rankings arena. Though I know the person who works directly on Top 50 Mens also is on tFS, but I'm certain that I'm the only one who ventures into this thread.

I actually really like this thread - I think it is great that people care. I know that Top 50 is the star of the show though - at least when it comes to what people debate / get up in arms about.

We actually have something coming soon that I think a lot of the people in this thread will like - or at least not hate outright. Anywho, enough about me, back to the regularly scheduled convo!

^^^OK, thank you for all the info but I still wouldn't be so sure the person who does the Top 50 doesn't read or hear about the discussions here at all. It seems like too much of a coincidence that a lot of changes in the ranking are made right after being brought up here.

And very curious about the new thing that's coming soon.

ROFL I love Maryna actually, she's definitely super sexy.

I don't want to spoil any upcoming surprises, but there will be some new things happening soon with that list! We can all agree that there are more than 20 sexy models working these days right?

I hope the new surprise is a Sexiest Male Models List ... that way the lists would be completely equitable and fair regarding genders exposure.
