    Hello all! Years ago, username Mr-Dale created their own rankings system similar to Models.com's Top 50 List. When they stopped posting them, I took over the task because of how off MDC's rankings were. I recreated my very own scoring system and posted my own updates for the past five or six years. You can find those rankings HERE.

    Below are the Top 50 Models ranked based on bookings alone. I consider at the last two campaign seasons and the last seven months of cover/editorial bookings to calculate my ranking, and the top 50 models with the highest score make the list.

    You'll also see a couple other lists, including the Upcoming Thirty, aka the top 30 highest scoring models to have debuted within the last three seasons. You'll see the Iconic Thirty, aka the top 30 highest scoring models (alphabetical) to have debuted a decade ago or more. All three lists will be updated a couple times a month, so keep watch for changes, additions, and subtractions.

    Please let me know of any questions you may have as to how I calculate, any model you don't see, any possible confusing rankings or mistakes etc. I'm happy to discuss!!!

    Vittoria is at #21, I lost a lot of things this past year, she is booking less because she doing less jobs now by choice now? She is my favorite of the recent girls.

    Seems to be the case, her work has slowed down a little this year. She's also in a relationship and perhaps she's focusing on that? She is/was having a similar career trajectory as Anna Ewers to me. I think she'll be around for a long long time, but who's to say. To me, she has staying power.

    Thank you for all the work you are doing for this list littlekiki!

    How do the runway shows factor into your calculations?

    Runway is added after the season ends and points are kept for a few months. I count bluechip shows only, and opening/closing is worth more. A good amount of bookings will generally cause a model to jump a few rankings (or even more if it's a stellar season). However, runway is not really a huge factor in the long run. Campaigns, covers, and contracts are the biggest thing. Hopefully that answers your question! :smile:

    Mariacarla is such an elite fighter, she still manages to gain lots of blue chip camaigns.

    I am so bored of Bella, she is lacking in freshness and versatility. I think the Covid-19 proves
    that instagirls do not have the power to generate brands' sales.
