    Not sure how long ago this was put into place, but the Fashion Model Directory now has rankings for models on their site. The rankings are generated by IFDAQ, which stands for International Fashion Digital Automated Quantification, “a powerful AI-system that provides infinite insight into the real market and benchmark value of the fashion industry and its professionals.“

    I believe the rankings change slightly on a daily basis. I’ll try to update the top 50 models on their list’s rankings as often as possible - each week should come with quite a few changes.

    I’d say the list is equally comprised of longevity, star power, versatility and relevance in the industry, so I wouldn’t find it an inaccurate depiction. However, it’s not as current and in-touch with today as the rankings we have here, which I ideally like to see model rankings based off of.

    This list doesn't make any sense , Andreea is above Doutzen Daria has left the game , Anne V is more relevant than Candice I could go on and on.....

    I'm surprised there's no Naomi.

    This list looks like it was made in 2015. Vanessa Moody? Arizona Muse? Lindsey Wixson?

    Quite a few changes for one day. Figured I’d update.

    Anok Yai added.

    They must weigh longevity in the industry pretty heavily. Many of these models haven't done relevant work in a few years.

    These changes are so odd. Why such a drastic drop for Adut and Anok....

    I would like to understand what parameters they consider in order to make the list. I think they consider longevity and earnings a lot, that's why there are models who don't work so much these days but are pretty established.

    I'm trying to find where I can view the rankings. I signed up for an account... are they supposed to send me a confirmation or something?

    It’s on the Fashion Model Directory website - when you look up a model’s name in the search bar, their ranking will show up directly under their name and nationality. I think IFDAQ only allows accounts for those who work directly in the industry... which explains why I never got an invite as well :lol:

    Anna Mila Guyenz is ranked #438 and Anne Vyalitsyna is ranked #524 according to my list... whereas Mica, Imaan, Kris, and Fei Fei are all within my Top 25 :lol:
