    I came up with this idea since FashionTV usually does a lot of mistakes when it comes to making ''First Face Countdown'' Top 10 list.
    Most of you heard about it for sure...but for those who don't know what is this..I'll make some short explanation.
    A First Face is the model who opens a show. Each designer chooses a model who they feel represents the style of their collection, everything about her, the face, the body, the walk, the look. When she first steps onto the runway she must project the perfect image.
    Each season Fashion TV makes a countdown of the top 10 first faces. The models that opened the most shows and the most successful models.
    Basically this is an amount of opening and closing fashion shows from each season which translate in the most sucessful models of the current season.
    And for example when someone's tied with 3 opened shows, we'll find how much shows they closed to get a winner (in the case two or more models are tied in opening and closing shows then we should choose the winner based in the major shows they opened/closed).

    So, since the fashion week is already over let's get start and post the list of opened/closed shows from each models (if they didn't open or close then is not worth it) to find the TOP10 First Face Countdown Fall Winter 2011-2012. hands on work fellows!:wink:

    It's great you opened the thread, I follow the FFs ranks since a long time and it's always interesting, though FTV seems to have no idea about what tehy do sometimes.

    But you posted this topic in the wrong forum!
    It belongs to the The ETC's of the Modeling World Forum.
    Maybe a mod can merge it :flower:

    It blows my mind that Natasha was able really blow up after so many years in business. She was only in the top 10 once in the previous four seasons, and in the lower half at that, and then number one three seasons in a row. Good for her.

    Here are some potential contenders for this season
    Alla Kostromichova
    Opened: 6 | Closed: 3

    Juju Ivanyuk
    Opened: 6 | Closed: 3

    It's really only the amount of shows opened (doesn't really matter the quality of the brand, just only when some models are tied in terms of opening and closing - then it counts the ''major'' shows).

    once again FTV does a lot of mistakes, the First Face Countdown was supposed to be from NY, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks however for example Caroline Trentini was #1 in F/W 06 and S/S 07 because she opened lot of shows in Brazil (in her S/S 07 season she opened 12 shows in Brazil 1 in Milan and 1 in New York) which is weird because the countdown is only from N.Y., London, Milan and Paris (a mistake from the past that can't really be fixed right now lol)

    You can see it here -> http://www2.ftv.com/fashion/page.php?P=3522

    Are you sure Alla walked 6 shows? I counted 5 in her thread but she walked quite a few indeed! and I might know why FashionTV don't put some models (who opened lot of shows) in their First Face Countdown video..because usually the footage they use are Milan/Paris major shows and (the case of Alla for example - she walked for Versace in Milan and Lanvin Dior Alexander McQueen and Viktor&Rolf - plus Givenchy but I don't see givenchy footages in fashiontv ''model talks'' videos in a long time) and if model walks 2 major shows in Milan and more couple in Paris there's not enough lenght to do a video? that's why they do not include them in their FFCountdown? that's my point of view I guess...someone?:flower:

    only openings but when a model is tied with other model for example Natasha opened 3 shows this season and Freja as well - I guess they'll count how many they closed to get a winner and if they closed the same number of shows then it's all about ''the major ones'' they opened/closed!? that's my point of view tho..but I truly think is in that way!:flower::wink:
