Who's Your Favorite Model?

12/27/2006 at 01:30 PM ET

When you think of supermodels, who pops into your mind? According to WWD, Manhasset, N.Y.-based Marketing Evaluations Inc. has found that Tyra Banks is actually the most recognized model to the American public. Number two on the list is Cindy Crawford, now 40, and 52-year old Christie Brinkley rounds out the top three — hardly the nubile teens that grace the pages of today’s fashion magazines. Check out any newsstand, and you’re more likely to see Daria Werbowy hawking Lancome or Gemma Ward in Prada, but Tyra’s successful America’s Next Top Model series and talk show have made her a household name. Others on this list: Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Heidi Klum, Rachel Hunter, Gisele Bundchen, and Christy Turlington. Tell us: Who’s your favorite model? Who is the ultimate supermodel to you?

My faves are Giselle and Twiggy. I love Giselle because she can eat like a cow and never gain weight!!!

My fav is Naomi Campbell – she has all of the characters a model should have, plus her beauty is timesless. However, I must admit that Christie Brinkley, Iman, Heidi & Tyra are VERY beautiful ladies though.

I think Tyra Banks is great. She’s a true representation of what most women really look like. It’s crazy that someone would make the comment that she is too fat. That is exactly what is wrong with the world today and why little girls and young women have eating disorders. Most of these models (body types) are not a good representation of what most women look and what is healthy. Everyone is not meant to be small or skinny……..Tyra can’t be the ugliest model you’ve ever seen…Maybe your not looking in the right magazines.

Christy Turlington is a favorite of mine. Also Adriana and Gisele, but I think I have to agree with Martine. Kate Moss is definitely one of the best “models” maybe not so much of a good ROLE MODEL but she is beautiful and she has that edge to her style that everyone loves.

Tyra is too full on DIVA for me. She is beautiful and is a good representation of American Girls but she doesn’t have that exotic edge that supermodels have.
