Are models like Iman, Twiggy, and Jean Shrimpton considered supermodels or icons? I don't know about their resumes, but I definitely think they are iconic.

this was posted by michelabella in Gisele's thread and I think it speaks volume that the definitive model that they chose for 2010's is Karlie. I agree with their choice.

I think longevity makes you a super and also someone who has done almost everything. VS, Beauty Contract, Vogue Italia Paris and US covers, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and your name or face is reasonably popular.

^ I agree DanceFashionista there is no one who has done Sports Illustrated Swimsuit along with blue chip campaigns in recent fashion history. Models are segregated as 'high fashion' and 'commercial' that no one cannot break into both these fields and be successful.

I guess Kate Upton could have big chance for that, if she would work out a little for high fashion market.

A lot of that has to do with the models that SI uses now. When Julie Taylor was the editor of the swimsuit issue, you had Paulina Porizkova, Christie Brinkley, Cindy Crawford, Cheryl Tiegs, Stephanie Seymour, and Carol Alt in the issue. These were girls who did HF before they landed in SI. The HF girls who want to do more commercial work now do VS, not SI.

I will never accept Karlie or Kate as supers, the former has no commercial appeal watsoever (Natalia or Isabeli are much more of supermodels than her) and the latter has done nothing noticeable in high fashion. I feel like there are no supermodel worthy figures nowadays. There are girls who are very successful in the world of high fashion, there are those who are famous for their swimsuit/lingerie work and/or relationships with famous actors/singers but there is no one who does it and has it all. Can't say I am happy about it
