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?

Tyra is beauiful…and has a strong, healthy body (not to mention a beautiful face). I also love the supermodels of the late eighties/early ninties (Claudia, Christie, Cindy, Linda, Stephanie). I was a teen then and they were my idols…women with healthy bodies and glamour like you do not see today (I was an amateur model myself). However, Niki Taylor was always my favorite. Though I believe she is now retired…she is fresh and all American. She also never succomed to the dark side of the fashion industry. Niki, you are not forgotten!

My Fav is Gisele By Far! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tyra Banks as a person, she seems amazing and her shows (ANTM and Tyra Banks Show) are awesome.. but as a runway model, I think Gisele is amazing! She is so naturally beautiful, make up or not, and she can really move on the catwalk. Shes Incredible!

I don’t have a favorite “super” model. What do they do that is super? They walk around half-naked, trash-talking each other and the world, acting like they deserve to be treated like gold. None of them that I know of have actually done much for humanity or the human race. Yes, they may be pretty to look at, but the true beauty lies inside those bodies. Bodies that will one day wither & die, just like the rest of us. I’m not against them, just don’t see what is so super about them.
