    If you rank them,what would you order into top20

    I have followed in this industry for not over 7 years,so I don't know much about old-supermodels(70s-90s especially 90s which is considered or overrated as the best era of supermodels)

    So,I ask in this forum which I think a lot of people in this thread have been followed for over 20+years.

    What about your opinion?

    Hmmm this is a great question. Pretty difficult to answer when looking at the last 30-40 years, as there are so many models to choose from and some eras are hard to compare. That being the case, these 20 models would probably be my personal favourites of all time. I haven't put them in order of favourites (although I do love the 90s supermodels with all my heart) but rather in order of the eras they come from. Anyways, here you are...

    1) Linda Evangelista
    2) Yasmeen Ghauri
    3) Christy Turlington
    4) Naomi Campbell
    5) Shalom Harlow
    6) Alek Wek
    7) Karmen Cass
    8) Karen Elson
    9) Mariacarla Boscono
    10) Liya Kebede
    11) Natasha Poly
    12) Kasia Struss
    13) Joan Smalls
    14) Liu Wen
    15) Anna Ewers
    16) Imaan Hammam
    17) Rianne von Rompaey
    18) Vittoria Ceretti
    19) Sora Choi
    20) Luna Bijl
    20.5) Adut :winkiss:

    My personal list.
    Top 15 Supermodels from 90's to nowadays
    1 Gisele
    2 Christy Turlington
    3 Kate Moss
    4 Naomi
    5 Natalia Vodianova
    6 Karen Elson
    7 Alek Wek
    8 Raquel Zimmermann
    9 Carolyn Murphy
    10 Mariacarla Boscono
    11 Amber Valetta
    12 Malgosia Bela
    13 Liya Kebede
    14 Doutzen Kroes
    15 Natasha Poly/ Sasha Pivovarova

    This list not included Daria Werbowy, Gemma Ward and Carmen Kass because they are retired many years ago.
    This list not included Karolina Kurkova because now she is more "instamama" then model.

    This list not included models like Colette P., Eugenia Volodina, Snejana Onopka because they are not confirmed iconic status and retired too fast.

    Other top 5 iconic models who can be here but they are not long enough in the industry.
    1 Saskia de Brauw
    2 Liu Wen
    3 Julia Nobis
    4 Mica Arganaraz
    5 Lara Stone

    Also i really like icons such as Elise Crombez, Caroline Trentini, Georgina Grenville, Sara Blomqist, Kristen McMenamy and many many others.

    It was a difficult! Ah

    Janice Dickinson
    Iman
    Karlie Kloss
    Cindy Crawford
    Linda Evangelista
    Naomi Campbell
    Twiggy
    Jerry Hall
    Joan Smalls
    Lily Cole
    Gemma Ward
    Du Juan
    Liya Kebede
    Pat Cleveland
    Christy Turlington
    Lara Stone
    Kristen Mcmenamy
    Alek Wek
    Tyra Banks
    Kate Moss

    No particular order. IMHO alot of these models either capture a time in fashion, a important shift in fashion/modeling, or they simply represent my personal entry/interest into the world of modeling (ie Tyra/Cindy in my childhood...and Gemma/Lily C in my later years). Plus a few underrated models that I feel don’t get their flowers (Janice, Du Juan, Lily C, Tyra....who I feel had really great portfolio as a High Fashion model...all her work with Meisel/ Klein/ Elgort/ Roversi is really good...its a shame she didnt persue it further and opted a more commercial route).

    I Have a #1 and #2, but anything after that is random:

    1. Tanya Dziahileva
    2. Sun Fei Fei

    Carmen Kass
    Sasha Pivovarova
    Snejana Onopka
    Natasha Poly
    Jessica Stam
    Coco Rocha

    Tyra Banks
    Alek Wek
    Liya Kebede
    Karolina Kurkova
    Jamie Bochert
    Liu Wen
    Karen Elson
    Christy Turlington
    Sui He
    Xiao Wen Ju
    Han Hye Jin
    Isabeli Fontana

    The first time I saw Tanya at Versace back in like 2007, I was awestruck. I thought she was the most alluring and fierce model i've ever seen. I was watching a runway compilations or a fashion show, and they didn't list her name. It took a week or so of research for me to find her name. I was so happy when I found who she was lol.
    When I first saw Fei Fei back in 2010, I thought she was so beautiful and talented. I don't remember exactly how I stumbled upon to her, but she always delivered in campaigns and editorials. Her runway wasn't too bad either. My love for her just keep growing.

    I didn't realized until looking at my list that most of the girls on my list are a great walker. And the one that aren't that great can at least walk and not look horrible(beside Saha lol). I think they are pretty strong on the editorial side too. Maybe Tanya, Tyra, Hyejin, Sui he are the weaker girls?

    I think you're allowed to have retired models on your list, This is your personal list.
    For me, they don't need to have some kind of qualifications for them to be on my "all time favorite models". If I like them, I like them.
