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?

Sana on

I think the only true super-model out there is Iman. She is graceful, dignified, drop dead gorgeous and never looks trashy. The rest of the gang are just models, but Iman is a step above the rest!

Becky on

heidi Klum is my fav, she seems like a normal person. Although she doens’t look like one. she embraces her family she has a good man in Seal and her family is as diverse as you can get.
She doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously but i also think she is classy.

DeborahPhilly on

I can’t stand Tyra Banks she like to talk about other people but she don’t look at her seft.

Lisa on

I love Ms. Tyra but my favorite supermodel of all time is Christie Turlington. She is still so beautiful! I like Heidi Klum too.. I agree with the comment at the top.. I love that she is family oriented. She has such a sweet little family. :)

sam on

Well, Debrah=]. i think that Tyra is a great role model b.c. she is a supermodel and has cellulite, which isnt badd, and is not even that skinny,and doesnt even have plastic surgery which isnt bad either =/. And i love Heidi!

sam on

love em all!

Stephanie on

I love Tyra, Iman and Heidi

Chantel on

I think Tyra is amazing! She is not only absolutely beautiful on the outside but she appears to be equally beautiful on the inside as well. She is making a sincere effort to represent women in a positive way and prove that one can be a successful model without being rake thin with an eating disorder…and for that I applaud her! Go Tyra…you are my favorite!!!!!

Melissa on

Gisele. ALWAYS GISELE!!
My husband thinks she´s pretty, both my sons love her, so I had to learn and it was REALLY EASY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL WOMAN.

Elda on

Christi Brinkley!! And still looking beautiful!!

RONAK on

Tyra is too fat to be a supermodel,
I believe the ultimate supermodels are Claudia Schiffer, Gisele Bundchen and Cindy Crawford.
Good that Tyra is finally out of Victoria’s Secret.
Hey,Adriana is hot too.

Monica on

gisele bundchen is my favorite model because she is so down to earth!

Nicole on

I enjoy Heidi’s personality and poise. She is a beautiful woman. Beautiful because she loves her job, her family, and herself. She is an excellent example of a woman who can have a high demand job and still be a wife and mother. She loves kids, she loves clothes. I admire and respect her for her loving heart and her post-baby strut on the cat walk.

Jennifer on

Hands down Heidi klum. She’s an inspiration on how a person juggles personal and private life with public. She shows what real love is and then she still makes it to a catwalk after giving birth with an amazing body. She’s sweet, polite and everything a supermodel not diva should be…humble.

Sarah on

What about Cindy Crawford? :)

wildflower on

Tyra is beautiful. She is a supermodel and a great one at that, although I think my favorite super model of all times has to be Christie Brinkley. She is just a timeless beauty.

Jaimie on

Definately Heidi Klum and Gisele. They are both gorgeous but do not let their beauty over come them and turn them into stuck up people like some models out there. I agree that Heidi Klum is ‘the Body’ more so than Elle MacPherson.

Robin on

I like Heidi Klum and Christy Turlington. They both seem like normal people and don’t let being a supermodel go th their head.

cheryl on

I just love Tyra, she’s a positive role model, she let’s us women know that we dont have to have that caucasin look of being so thin that we could be related to the starving children in Africa. Beauty is not just on the outside it glows from within and she shows that when she tells you and shows you how she looks without all that makeup. All those models have touchups on their photos, none are as beautiful in person as their photos appears. And yes she has a little meat on her and yes she has extra hair, but she wears it well! They are all beautiful in their own way and shouldnt be compared to each other!

Judy on

I agree with Sana, IMAN is the ideal supermodel, graceful, classy and still beautiful inside and out.

Samantha on

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!

Jessie on

I love all the supermodels but Heidi is number one.

APRIL RAIN!! on

SINCE THE SUBJECT MATTER WAS ON MISS UNIVERSE LAST WEEK SUPER MODEL HELANA CHRISTENSEN SINCE ALSO SHE WAS A FORMER MISS UNIVERSE CONTESTANT IN 1986 .

laura on

i dont’ know the name of my favorite model but she models for victoria secret. she looks so naturally pretty (most of the celebs are horrific with out pounds of make up). i wish i knew her name. this is going to drive me nuts all day!! or until i get bored thinking about it. lol.

Liz on

Niki Taylor was definitely one of the most beautiful and gracious models.

Runner Ups: Christy Turlington, Gisele, Claudia Schiffer & Elle Macpherson, Bridget Hall

YINN on

CINDY CRAWFORD IS A GOOD ONE SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL WITH A SINCE OF CONFIDENCE AND STYLE .

Teresa on

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!

Rita on

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.

BELLA on

I ALSO LIKE BRAZILIANS ANA BEATRICE BARROS,IZABELI FONTANA AND MEGAN IWING WHO IS PART MEXICAN AND PART GERMAN.

Mary on

Hello. Janice Dicknson…. She is definately a supermodel with spunk.

jenna on

I am suprised that Adriana from Victoria Secret did not make the list. She is everywhere lately and has a unique look. Kate Moss makes models everywhere look like trash. I guess there is no such thing as bad publicity.

Fay on

Niki Taylor who is gorgous and has a glow to her .and now with a more nuetral aspect since the accident she is one that I hope can come back in the market.

jessica on

Anybody but Tyra is awesome. I hate how the woman thinks that she knows everything, she acts like she is a psychiatrist, and if you have ever noticed no matter what she turns the subject back on to her. I don’t know about anyone else, but I have had enough of Tyra!

Kelly on

I think that Iman, Crawford, Brinkley, and Turlington are all beautiful and graceful women. However, to me I think that Tyra is a great role-model. She’s got curves, cellulite, and she’s real which makes her seem approachable..and she’s successful. Heidi is also great, she’s real too and she’s successful.

Cheryl on

Iman is #1 definitely!….Gisele is 2nd for me…that girl does some impossible poses…I keep trying but my body just won’t go there..lol

Ninebth on

I do like Argentinians Yamilia Diaz and Valeria Mazza but even though valeria looks beautiful still with blonde hair i think i would like it more if she was brunette.

Lavender on

I think that Izabel Goulart is hot. I also love Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima they have that supermodel look that everyone adores.

banina on

My personal favorites would have to be Gisele and Iman. Iman is so classic and Gisele is just jaw-dropping gorgeous.

Becca on

Christy Turlington–100%. I had the chance to meet her years ago in Chicago when she was signing autographs for Calvin Klein. She was even more beautiful (if possible) in person, and she was as intelligent and friendly as she was beautiful. L-O-V-E her!

Rebecca on

RE: RONAK That was a very ridiculious thing you said about Tyra being too fat to be a supermodel. She is beautiful and I sure don’t see a blog talking about ‘RONAK’ now do we?

enigma on

From the 70’s Cheryl Teggs or Carole Bouquet.
From the 80’s Chritie Brinkley or Iman.
From the 90’s Christy Turlington or Niki Taylor.
From the now Gisele Bundchen or Heidi Klum.

But, I have always found Milla to be very interesting as well.

LKD on

HEIDI KLUM FOR SURE!!! SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND MOTHERHOOD 3 TIMES MAKES HER EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL(if thats possible!!)

Mo on

I think Tyra is very beautiful, I like her cause she seems real and can be really silly at times… She is not real skinny, and i think that’s a good thing bc some model are so skinny they look anorexic

M.Renee on

Tyra Banks is definately my favorite super model. She is beautiful, a smart businesswoman, and seems very compassionate. As for the comment made by Ronak about Tyra being too fat, if you haven’t noticed, real women have curves, and Tyra Banks is a great representitive of that. She is #1, no contest.

evelii on

My favorites are Tyra, Selita Ebanks and Fernanda Tavares.

tmarie on

HEIDI you go girl…. heidi klum is the best super model ever shes done it all and still looks good. its the german in her; shes the total package. My second choice would be adriana she has an amazing look.

MammaBear on

Does anyone remember Cheryl Tiegs? I always thought of her as having “the girl next door” look. Anyway, they are all beautiful.

kelly on

Tyra is the Top Model! She will alwayss be considered America’s TOP MODEL. She has it all.

Angie on

I personally think Tyra is the ugliest model I’ve ever seen! I don’t know how she was ever a model! My favorite model is either Gisele Bundechen or Adriana Lima! Or, any of the Victoria’s Secret models!

Mandy on

linda evangelista.

David on

well, talking of supermodels, have you seen Linda Evangelista? if i wasn’t already in love….

Sarah on

I love Tyra…but she doesn’t do much these days besides her shows. My favorite models now are Adrianna Lima and Gisele.

Heather on

Heidi is beautiful and classy, and I think she would be fun to hang out with, but if I’m flipping through a magazine, I want to see Gisele in the ads. She’s such a unique beauty!!

C on

I’ve always loved Cindy Crawford. She has a great body without being super skinny.

Alex on

My favorite has to be Kate Moss. She’s very original and different from all of the other supermodels.

j on

i gotta go old school w/this question and go w/who i grew up seeing–naomi, christy, cindy, claudia, and linda…the ORIGINAL supermodels.
heidi is great as well.

SHERi on

I’ll go with Iman. Lately Tyra has been getting on my nerves making EVERYTHING about herself. Even on America’s Next Top Model (which I LOVE) she seems out of control and starved for attention. It’s like watching a train wreck.

Tisha on

i like Heidi I thik she really cute!!! But I gotta show my girl Tyra sum love too.

LKD on

OK does anyone watch ANTM? I do and im not a fan of Tyra. My point… She ALWAYS stands sideways when she is in the judging room!! Its so annoying!! Like i get that you gained weight and weigh the same as a normal person now that you retired, but standing sideways does not help!!!
TYRA SO ANNOYING!!

Kelly on

Wow! I can’t believe how these people are actually saying how ugly and fat tyra is! I don’t know how anyone can be so harsh. If tyra is fat then I would like to see what you guys think is fat! hands down Tyra is my favorite just becasue she is down to earth and beautiful!

La La on

I love Tyra and now her show is getting high rates, props to Tyra!

Hannah on

I think Adriana Lima is the most gorgeous of all… Now, Gisele does have an amazing body, Heidi a great personality, and Cindy the all-American charm, but Adriana is just one of those exotic beauties that doesn’t come around very often.

RONAK on

RE: M Renee/Rebecca ,I totally agree with Angie ,I forgot to add UGLY in my comments earlier.
Can you even compare them to beauties like Adriana or Crawford??Dont think so.
Also, Heidi is a sweetheart,lov ya.

Jennifer Denise on

Models I find the most beautiful; Linda Evangelista and Heidi Klum.

Jennifer on

Linda Evangelista doesn’t get the credit she deserves! This woman is exquisite!! I also think Heidi Klum is stunning.

Alyse on

Gisele Bundchen — perfection!

Ana on

I love tyra Banks, she is a normal and lovely woman…

Vee on

I saw only a couple people mentioned Linda Evangelista she is the epitomy of a “supermodel” in my book. She is absolutely beautiful and can pull off any look – she’s amazing. Close second is Christy Turlington also gorgeous.

Misha on

you have to be kidding me. Tyra Banks?!? she is all attitude and isn’t even that pretty! her show is a joke, she WISHES she was good like Oprah! she has the biggest ego this side of George Clooney! How could Cindy Crawford and her mole not be #1 recoginized model in America? Who did they interview – 13 year olds?!? My fav is still Helena Christensen.

js on

Christy Turlington, Heidi Klum & Niki Taylor! Happy, healthy and beautiful women.

Joni on

My favorite is Heidi Klum because she an inner beauty that just glows, you can tell she’s normal and loves life. Gisele has a nice long lean body but the face isn’t much. Adrian Lima has an exotic sexiness to her but I don’t see as diverse, she only could do pin up modeling. Kate Moss I think is beautiful but in a weird dirty way. Iman is absolutely naturally gorgeous. She’s like 50 and still looking right. Christing Turlington is a natural beauty. Tyra banks I think has a nice healthy body, nice skin color, nice green eyes but she’s not really a model anymore. The models today are very skinny, and personally I like more T&A and hips. Gemma Ward is really cute though for today’s model.

Rachel on

It’s all about IMAN! She’s beautiful, classy, and timeless. She puts the others to shame. IMAN, IMAN, IMAN…then Cindy, Gisele, and Heidi. Never Tyra, she looks like and alien (but I love America’s Top Model).

Teresa on

Christie Brinkley is flawless STILL after all this time. That is true beauty if it lasts. Tyra doesn’t have the grace. If she would remain quiet, she would be prettier.

Chrissy on

Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Niki Taylor. They are all beautiful!

JRO on

My fav is by far Cindy Crawford!!!!!!!

Sarah on

I would say it’s any of the Victoria’s Secret Angels…they are by far my favorite (Heidi, Gisele, Adrianna etc). They are so poised and gorgeous. They all seem like genuinely wonderful people.

emily on

Um, Nadja Auerman and Kirsty Hume anyone? These are true European beauties that are still working and haven’t succumbed to scandal!

jane on

I would definitely have to say the natural Corsican beauty, Laetitia Casta. She used to model for VS, Guess, Swarovski, and other companies, but I think she’s since retired from modeling. She is GORGEOUS, nothing fake or contrived about her.

Elaine on

Cindy Crawford – hands down (okay maybe all the models in the FREEDON vid too fyi- George Michael).

Elaine on

*FREEDOM video -oops

Sarah on

My favorite is Alessandra Ambrosio from Victoria Secret. But I love Gisele also!!

Diane Anderson on

Verushka, Jean Shrimpton, Iman, Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Lauren Hutton, Catherine Deneuve.
Beautiful, classy + stylish.

darialogist on

i can see how my only fave model daria werbowy is definitely not a houasehold name…

Michelle on

Personally, I think Tyra is beautiful but she has become somewhat of a joke. She’s admitted that the way she acts on ANTM is just an act, and her talk show is ridiculous… she focuses on herself during every show… she puts on a fat suit or pretends to be homeless for a day and all she can say is how much it affected HER while the people who are going through it are sitting around her and comforting her, just so she can go back to her palatial mansion and be perfect again.
That was my rant… I like Iman, mostly because she’s married to David Bowie ;) … Elle MacPherson is beautiful too.

Amanda on

I like Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks.

ARABELLA on

REALLY BEAUTIFUL MODELS/ UJJWALA RAUT-INDIA, CINTHIA MOURA-BRAZIL-, ELSA BENITEZ- MEXICO

ARABELLA on

REALLY BEAUTIFUL MODELS/ UJJWALA RAUT-INDIA, CINTHIA MOURA-BRAZIL-, ELSA BENITEZ- MEXICO

Lena on

Tyra, natural – don’t think so. She wants to be a white woman. Never understood that. She should be herself, she has a pretty face and nice curves, and that is ok, but she tries too hard, I’ve had enough. Her American Top Model show is ok -she keeps away enough, but her appearances at the elimination is just too much, sometimes she looks like a clown or an alien. Heidi is tops and Gisele too – those legs!

Martine on

Kate Moss is my favourite model, apart from her personal life which is questionable of late, her look is always one step ahead of everyone, she is bohemian and looks good in almost any look, she is constantly changing with the times, although not necessarily beautiful she has a look that is timeless, down to her bone structure and frame. She carries clothes very well.

My second choice would be Iman and then Linda Evangelista, love her.

DELUSION on

I also like Petra Nemkova-Czech Rep Flavia De Oliviera-Brazil Warris Dirrie -Somalia Liya Kebeda-Ethiopia

Rach on

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

Lease on

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.

Dee on

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.

kkiiiiiiimmmy=) on

i lalalalove Crawford. She makes things more classicly chick. Me dad’s afraid of Tyra Bankds. xD

BRASIL, on

MY FAVORITE BRAZILIANS THAT ARE NOT ORIGINALLY FROM RIO-ADRIANNA LIMA,ANA BEATRICE BARROS,IZABEL GOULART,LARYSSA CASTRO,IZABELI FONTANA,FERNANDA TAVERAS,ALAN NAKASHIMA,FLAVIA DE OLIVIERA,CINTHIA MOURA,

Candi on

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.

Teresa on

I think Alessandra Ambrosio is absolutely flawless! I would kill to look like her..She has a natural beauty that i just love…

Candi on

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.

C.NINA on

RIO GRANDE DU SOL (BRASIL0-RAQUEL ZIMMERMAN,GISELE BUNCHEN,ALESSANDRIA AMBROSSIO

Lisa M on

I have to agree that Niki Taylor is absolutaly beauiful.

CD on

My Favorite is Linda Evanglista. Thereafter, all the models that their first name begins with a “C”: Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington and Christie Brinkley. BIZARRE!

Ashley on

Top model in my mind is Christie Brinkley, look at her for her age, and always smiling. She is a beautiful woman and I might say, she is still at it!!!

Gloria Colon on

I think Tyra Banks is the best Model. Because she is a true role model for other girls who are thinking of modeling. Also she is a role model for many women her show alone shows that she cares about the people on her show and discusses real stories that women and men go through in life. I copliment her she has struggled and has done good for herself. You go Tyra. Glori from Wethersfield, CT

Kelly on

Gisele and Tyra are my favorite. Giesele has natural beauty.

Gene on

CINDY CRAWFORD SO BEAUTIFUL AND MOLLY SIMS IS THE NEW NIKI TAYLOR IN A MORE MILLIAN KIND OF WAY.

Caty on

Adriana has the most ravishing face, but I think that Heidi is by far the ultimate supermodel: gorgeous body, beautiful face, wonderful personality… I would also consider Kate Moss, too bad she’s got too much of a rock star attitude than a supermodel.

marie on

My favorite model is Gisele Bundchen. She is HOTT!! I like Tyra, she knows what she is doing, but she seems kinda cocky.

DAHLIA on

what about karolina kurcova???

VNJB on

GISELE BUNCHEN!! ALL THE WAY :-) SO CUTE WITH THAT ACCENT!!

Gustavo Cruz on

I love Gisele Bundchen and she’s my all-time favorite model.

Angie on

Hey, everyone has to agree w/ Giselle when it comes to who is on TOP! This woman is soooo beautiful and she never takes a bad picture. NOW THAT IS BEAUTY for ya!

katty on

But I think that Tyra is just fab, I like the DIVA. But I have to say that my real favourites are Adriana Lina and the biggest one is Tiiu Kuik, she is so pretty and fab! I just adore her!

Danielle on

I personally love Adriana Lima I think she is great but I also love Heidi and ofcourse the new beauty Touriya Haoud.

Marie Louise on

Im from Denmark so i have to remind you of Helena Christensen!

Angie on

yeah this comment goes to RONAK……. don’t be hating on TYRA, at least she is not represaenting the super skinny models out there that instead of modeling clothes they model their bones…..it’s only natural that your jealous of something that you will never have RONAK.

rachel on

kate moss is my favorite..she’s not your average beauty and she’s one of the most stylish women in the world.

Sue Tom on

What about Yasmeen Ghauri and Carla Bruni? Why are there no ‘Supermodels’ now? Christy Turlington is by far #1.

Lis on

Heidi Klum. Hands down. She embodies everything it means to be a supermodel in my opinion. She looks amazing with and without makeup on, is a real sweetheart with a really great heart, and looking at her you would never know that she had 3 kids. A true supermodel in my eyes.

Zakiya from seattle on

I think Naomi Campball is the most natural supermodel there is she not all made up like tyra Banks beside Tyra talks about people too much!

Lizzy on

I’d have to say Linda Evangelista, Selita Ebanks, Gisele, and Iman.

Gabrielle on

I like Tyra, I think she’s very real and not like other models that are involved with themselves. I love Gisele! I think she’s humble and nice.

Alex on

I am at a tie between Christie Brinkley and Petra Nemcova. Christie because she handled the public ‘scandal’ of her divorce with class and strength…and is still so beautiful as she has been through the years. And Petra because of her horrific experience being in the tsunami and what she has chosen to do with her celebrity status after that life-changing event.
I had a friend that had to escape an over-water bungalow when the tsunami his and his story is one that will bring tears to the strongest of people…the death, destruction and overall confusion and misery was horrifying.

LG on

my favorite supermodel is Adriana Lima…she has this very exotic beauty…very unique..she is also fun to watch backstage during victoria secret’s fashion show.

erica on

I love Kate Moss for her unique look, but not her personality.

I LOVE the two Christies! Turlington and Brinkley!! Both seem sweet too.

bonita on

Not my vote….. she empty and rerun over and over….. maybe she will fade into something off tv….. Top model NOT

Michelle on

Nikki Taylor. She has the girl next door all american girl look.

Karen on

Gisele Budchen, no question!!!!

Val on

I’m a product of the 80’s and I would have to go with Linda Evangelista. I think her look is classic, but she can flip it on a dime.

Layla on

Adriana Lima all the way!

lucy on

either heidi klum or alessandra ambrosio. heidi klum because she’e down to earth, and because she’s had 3 kids and still looks amazing. alessandra ambrosio because she’s shorter (only 5’8″), a natural beauty, and has a REAL woman’s body. props to both heidi and alessandra for having killer curvers!

jodi on

Tyra is the best, 1 she is beautiful, and 2 she has some curves like the rest of the world and helps make the rest of us feel good about our bodies!!!

ryan on

naomi campbell now and forever will always be the ultimate supermodel

Aisha on

Iman, Gisele,Linda Evalgalist.Heidi is cool too( love Project Runway). I would hae to say Iman.

Dayne on

Gisele Bundchen is my favorite model because she has the best runway walk and can even act in movies … I also like Carmen Kass and Gemma Ward

Sher on

Christie Brinkley is the American Girl and a Class Act.

kelly on

I think I speak for all MEN…Tyra Is HOT!!!!!!!!!! She is all woman. Her confidence and features are beautiful . Why is it all about Tyra because well if i wanted to look like her I would say she is ugly too. She is all self esteem is all about building others too. Tyra has got it going on! This posting is about Tyra And I say I wish she was mine! I asked Santa and I was xtra good and he still didn’t give me her! I don’t believe in Santa anymore……..:(

Lyna on

I disagree about Giselle as she is not nearly as recognizable as other “real” supermodels such as Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer…..

Susie on

Definitely Linda Evangelista and Kate Moss~~

rakel on

Tyra and Gisele, both totally hot, but Tyra is the most beautiful model ever.

moly on

gisele, only gisele, she is perfect and natural the others are plastics beauty.

Chyna on

Iman is the most beautiful I’ve seen. Honorable mention are Beverly Johnson, Tyra, Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Linda Evangelista (sp?), and…wow, I’m forgetting a whole bunch of names.

Brittany on

First and foremost, Tyra is narcissistic and that is not a trait that should be representing the modeling world. I belive Kate Moss is a true example of the amount of versatility a super model should possess while Gisele Bundchen rates above all else.

elle on

def tyra banks, shes so nice to people & she seems very down to earth. I love her talk show!

Jennifer on

I think Petra Nemcova is really beautiful + we have the
same BDay. Also Claudia and Stephanie Seymour were my
favorites back in the day.

Anonymous on

She looks insane in this picture. What is with the bad wig? I’ve seen better from Tyra.

anonymous on

She doesn’t look too hot in that picture. What is with that bad wig? And those brows? I’ve seen better from here.

sheree on

I genuinely like Tyra. She probably IS the most famous model. Because of her tv shows, pretty much everyone knows who she is. She’s beautiful and she’s very very REAL and down-to-earth, unlike many other super-shallow-models.

Hannah on

Heidi Klum is definitely the most attractive, glowing, “real” model out there right now. She looks natural and healthy, not waifish and frail.

carmen on

i dont like tyra that much anymore because the only thing she does in her show is judge people. I like Gisele and adriana lima because they are hot and they are sweet

Meggie on

Yasmin Le Bon. She is tops, as is her husband!!

Jenny on

JANICE DICKINSON?!?!? You’ve got to be kidding me. Ah-ha-ha-ha!!!!

Sully on

My favorites are Tyra, Gisele, and Adriana!

LERU on

THIS IS YOUR STAEMENT ONLY GISELE SHE IS THE MORE NATURAL ,WHO MADE YOU QUEEN OF HOLLYWOOD PLASTIC?

Jarrell on

Tyra is not my favourite but on the same hand how can people so harsh and evil….how can anyone say tyra is fat…just becuz she doesn’t represent what those anorexic models look like she’s fat???….c’mon people get a life this encouragement and persistent exposure of skinniest is ruining or teenagers and what is that gonna cause for the future…..gone are the days when teenagers want the jennifer lopez or jessica biel like bodies….but not strayin from the topic HEIDI KLUM BY FAR!!!!!! then giselle bundchen and then tyra banks….

Elle on

I DO LIKE CHRISTY TURLINGTON!!

Gabrielle on

Helena Christensen and Isabeli Fontana are the most beautiful supermodels ever.

Elisabeth on

Tyra all the way. Love Heidi too but Tyra’s the best.

Elizabeth on

they’re all gorgeous but adriana lima and emma ward are my favs :)

Lynn on

ELLIE MCHEARSON AND HEIDI KLUM ,EVEN THOUGH THE HOLE SUPPOSED BREAKOUT THING BETWEEN THE TWO !!HEIDI IS MORE OF THE HUMBLE BEAUTY AND ELLIE IS ALL AMERICAN IN A IN A HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBIE WAY.

SIENA on

EVEN THOUGH ELLIE MCPHEARSON IS FROM AUSTRALIA SHE STILL HAS THAT AMERICAN LOOK TO HER BUT AUSTRALIA IS REALLY NO DIFFERENT.

Shannon on

Forgive me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t we focus a little bit more on a supermodel’s MODELING SKILLS, not their personality? I don’t think any supermodel can be a role model given the superficiality of their chosen profession, but some are very skilled at what they do. Gisele, for one. Kate Moss is an excellent model. Iman.

Tara on

Gemma Ward

Lorenz on

TYRA is so hot! she really is the ultimate model!!!!!!!!!

chanel on

Carol Alt….the most classic beauty

Ekaterina on

Kate Moss no doubt…the coke scandal was blown way out of proportion. She is one of many many models to do drugs and yet she was the only one to catch flak for it. She is very talented and very recognizable plus she sells the products so well.

cindy on

ADRIANA LIMA, Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss are tops in my book.

Jenny on

Kate Moss is by far the best model ever. She is simply beautiful.

kim on

I don’t agree with this models temper and mean spirit, but as far as outward beauty goes, Naomi Campbell is by far the most striking and strong presence on the runway, she seems maybe a little less WoW factor just because of aging etc.. but look at her in her hay day, she’s amazingly beautiful.

adam on

YASMEEN GAURI..YASMEEN GAURI…YASMEEN GAURI…she had the best walk…
I HAD THE HUGE CRUSH ON HER FROM BACK IN THE DAY…

nicole on

im a canadian so my vote goes to yasmin too

katie on

Iman. She has this presence that no other women i’ve seen …just ageless…she’s like a beautiful sculpture
Come on tyra and heidi will never look as good as she does

sarah on

I think Niki Taylor has the wholesome model factor of my generation. Tyra Banks is okay I guess, but she doesn’t do much or hardly any charity…also as a new younger model, Jessica Stam cause she is from Canada and also a VS model!

Shari on

I love Selita Ebanks, Gemma Ward, and Lily Cole.

Anna Marie on

My favourite model is Hana Soukupova. She is pure, bewitching beauty, not to mention fantastically tall, even for a model. However, the ultimate supermodel to me is Cindy.

rq on

adriana lima, gisele and heidi klum

lovetta on

I love Tyra she is beautifull.My favorite is Naomi Campbell, I love her to death. we have the same date of birth,and I love all Gemini’s out there. A real Gemini is born May 22nd trust me. I am, so do my girl Naomi.girl I can’t wait to meet you. We don’t tolerate nonsense,we always speak up But the good part is we are really good people.We forgive very easily.

Eric Juarez on

Adriana Lima is the hottest Supermodel alive. She rocks my socks

Robin on

Tyra Banks is the #1 Super Model. She has rose to the ocassion of being a hard working woman in the hardest industry in the world. Tyra has kept her morals and values intact while always doing her job. Tyra’s never sold out! Tyra worked hard from a young age and she is dedicated to educate other young model’s of just how serious this business is. Tyra Banks for President! She’s the whole package as a Role Model, Super Model, Best Friend, and Talk Show Host.Tyra’s a Very Practical and Smart Business Woman…P.S. She loves her Mother! That about does it! Next to Tyra is Hedi! she rocks too!

lovetta on

I love Naomi Campbell. I know so many people do not like her because She is beautifull and do not tolerate nonsense from those super fools out there. She is very proud of where she come from and girl, I love her to death. all Gemini’s out there I love you all with the exception of Angelina,I do not aproved or appreciate what she did to Jennifer.

Natalie on

Kate Moss has always been my favorite model, even though she has made some mistakes with drugs, drinking and that awful Pete Dougherty guy.
I am a true fan for many years now!!
She has great style and such a unique beauty.

Chelsea on

I love Tyra Banks. I think she’s the best there is. I like her
and Gisele, Alessandra, and Heidi.

Stephanie on

I think Christie Brinkly is the ultimate supermodel. She has stood the test of time. She is as beautiful today as ever.

night on

I saw a recent photo of tyra in a magazine of her in a bathing suit…the photo shows her with about 40 extra pounds packed on. Unless that was some sort of hoax, I now like this woman…she can gain weight like the rest of us, and she is only human, and still proudly wear a swimsuit….I think I really like her now.

mary on

i would have to say tyra. she is such a beautiful person on the inside and outside. she is a real reflection of what women should really be. i also luv gisele and heidi.

Kk on

tyra rocks!!!

tr on

ADRIANA LIMA IS THE BOMB! SHE IS PERFECT! VERY SWEET AND I LOVE HER PIERCING GRAY-BLUE EYES, SHE IS NOT ANOREXIC LOOKING MODEL, TOO. SHE IS JUST SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!

Katarina on

The unforgettable Paulina Porizkova, Tatjana Patitz, Rachel Williams, Estelle Hallyday, Rene Simonsen, Shalom Harlow, and Veronica Webb.

Claudine on

I think the best model of all time is Cindy Crawford, but as for current models, I would have to say Adriana Lima is. Trya must take everything said and relate it back to herself which drives me crazy. Aside from coming up with a great show, America’s Next Top Model, I do not think Tyra’s modeling comes close to any of the other popular models, like Klum, Moss, and Crawford.

jaimie on

i love tyra! she is definantly my favorite! she seems like such a down to earth person that anyone would want to just hang out with and have fun!

Makala on

MY favorite Top Model is TYRA BANKS she is my Idol..!!!!I love u tyra!!

Dolly on

I think Giselle is one of the best, but tyra, a supermodel? Sure she’s “strong” because she’s just about the size of a tank…

justagirl on

hands down HEIDI KLUM !

Dea on

Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelissta & Adriana Lima…

nicky on

3. Tyra Banks, 2. Alessandra Ambrosio, AND (Drumroll, please) 1. Heidi Klum

Natalie on

I love Tyra! However, when I think supermodel I think Heidi or Gisele! Guess those two are the big ones right now, they seem to be all over the place! They are all so beautiful though!

Sheila on

I love love love Heidi Klum, she is beautiful inside and out!

Jackie on

I love Christie Turlington. Her look is so unique and she’s very influential since after her father died due to cigarette smoking she’s been trying to stop others from doing it. Tyra is ok.. but I know many people think she’s fake and I do think she’s trying too hard to be the next oprah. And Heidi Klum is straight out annoying…remember the first season of project runway she had no personalityy but lately she’s been showing it more but still her face looks kind of like a rat and her voice is annoying. Oh and Giselle is gorgeous. and her ex leo is fiine

Geoff on

Tyra and christie-hands on, oops hands down. Since the first time I saw them I`ve compared every other supermodel to them, thry`re my standard of judgement.

Kathy on

I can’t stand tyra, after watching her talkshow, i see she’s trying too hard to be the next opra. Nothing is natural and watching her try to be emotional is watching a cheap movie flic. She used to be one of my favorites but beauty is on the inside too!!

one of my favorites is christie brinkley

Gigi on

ADRIANA LIMA!

Brigitte-belle on

I hate Tyra Banks! Especially after watching season 7 of Top Model, she is so mean, what they do to the girls! and she is so self righteous! but she was a really good model
My favorite is gemma ward, she’s so cute and is a good role model for teenagers
but I also love Heidi Klum she is heavenly beautiful

Abbie on

I agree with some of these comments. I am NOT a fan of Tyra Banks. True beauty lies within and she doesnt possess that. She isn’t that beautiful on the outside either. Strip her face of all the make-up and she looks like a totally different person, not beautiful at all!! Some women are beautiful with or without make up. She is not one of those women!!

In my opinion the true supermodels are Iman and Christine Brinkely. No matter how old they are they are still very beautiful, inside as well as out. They are full of class and carry themselves well.

Melody on

I am a really big fan of Selita Ebanks (New Victoria Secrets model)the only Super Model from the three most beautiful Islands in the Caribbean the Cayman Islands. Tyra Banks has paved the way for may more up an coming model to get into the business, Which other “Super Model” has ever done that so she is more than a pretty face.

Lisa on

I love Heidi Klum, Giselle, Christie Brinkley and best of all Cindy Crawford. Tyra doesn’t even come close.

Stephanie on

TYRA!!!!… I love her for not only being beautiful but for being one of the most well rounded models ever. She has a talk show, reality show, acted, sang, modeled, and done photography… what other model has done ALL that? After her I love Heidi Klum for being family oriented and trying different things as well. Last but not least Giselle!… She has a natural beauty, and she’s everywhere!… I also like that she has given acting a shot!… You have to appreciate their efforts!

darialogist on

well, despite my love and preference for daria, i must say that kate moss is probably the fashion greatest icon ever.
(darialogist.blogspot.com)

J. on

I have 3 favorites…for a younger newer model I would go with Gisele. For someone who’s been around a little while and blows me away after having 3 children would be Heidi Klum and last but not least for the good old classic and timeless beauty would be Cindy Crawford. They are all such beautiful women. But honestly, there are a ton of beautiful models out there right now, thats why they’re models right?!!

Sarah on

I am probably one of the biggest Kate Moss fans out there. I think her style is always cutting edge, just look at all of the trends she’s started! Everything from vests, skulls, skinny fit pants, tights, ankle boots…. the list goes on and on. She’s the coolest out there, with friends like Jade Jagger, Alexander McQueen, and Anita Pallenberg. And I’ve heard that her personality is very sweet, easy-going, and fun (a generally nice person interested in those around her).

Everything she advertises for sells at amazing rates. I’ve heard that her photo is attached to stories she’s only somewhat related to just because her image can make ANYTHING sell. Not only has she handled the scandal with grace, but she’s in the midst of a comeback that has her earning triple what she earned before it. She’s only 5’7, which for a supermodel is pygmy sized – and she really turned modeling on its head with her grunge-era “heroin chic” look. She’s about to turn 33, she’s been modeling for 19 years, and yet she’s still the most sought after supermodel in the world.

yen on

FOR ME ITS KATE MOSS, EVENTHOUGH SHE´S HAD DRUG SCANDALS AND THAT BOYFRIEND, SHE´S NOT PERFECT AND WE MAY NOT AGREE ON THE WAY SHE LEADS HER LIFE BUT AT MODELLING SHE IS THE BEST AND KNOW ONE CAN TAKE THAT AWAY

niki on

I think that after having 3 kids so close together and you can still maintain a body like that. Then you do deserve the title of Super Model. Go Heidi keep up the good work

Chantisse on

Linda Evangelista is the best model hands down. No matter her haircolor or cut she was the prettiest of them all. The chameleon is the best.

MODELSNEEDTOGAINWEIGHT! on

OK!!!!!!!!! WELL FIRST OF ALL! HOW ARE ANY NORMAIL PEOPLE EVER GOIGN TO BE ABLE TO FIT IN THE THINGS THAT THEY FIT IN!! SO EWW! AND I THIONK TYRA IS ERALLY FAKE! SO! I DON CARE HOW HARD SHE TRYS! NO! I LIKE THA BIG ODELS

Simone on

Deborah, try learning to spell SELF first before you critize Tyra. She is smart, strong, beautiful and a role model.

Michelle on

I would have to say the number one supermodel would have to be Cindy Crawford. She was actually one of the original supermodels…along with Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, etc. She has a timeless beauty and grace about her that is undeniable. As far as Tyra goes…you cannot deny that she is beautiful…she has beautifaul green eyes, dewy skin and killer curves…but she’s not a classic beauty. Have you seen the size of her forehead?!?

GoddessLu on

Cindy Crawford was the ideal in my day (amateur model that I was) and always maintained that she was working for that figure by exercising, not as some of them say by not doing anything at all. She still looks great and has a great life set up for her. I see Heidi Klum as the slightly younger version of that ideal. Today’s model favorite is definitely Giselle. She’s got an interesting look, she can speak (GREAT accent) and she was pretty good in Devil Wears Prada (wisely not trying to star in a movie but be a very small supporting actor). If she plays her cards right, she’ll end up as her 2 predecessors above are in their 30’s, successful, financially solvent and hopefully happy in her personal life.

katie on

Nikki Taylor

courtney on

I THINK HEIDI KLUM IS BEAUTIFUL BY FAR.

Katie on

TYRA BANKS!! you go girl! I love tyra cause she is beautifeul inside and out… she is a role model for all of us young ones because shes not like other supermodels that go skinny cause they think only really really really skinny people can model! I love Tyra and always will she is beautiful inside and OUT! And I also love her tv seris “Americas Next Top Model”… me and my best friend watch it every Wednesday at 7:00! Good pick on Caridee she deserves to have the chance to be a supermodel! I also adore Heidi Klum… becasue she has a adorible family and is awesome at hosting “Project Runway”! You go Heidi!
XOXO!

gemma ward and cintia dicker are the best new models. so beautiful

kat on

Tyra Banks really does know her stuff she has been in the business most of if not all of her adult life, so when she comments on wannabe models errors flaws whatever u wish to call it it is because she knows what she on about she has been there done that got the t shirt, she is the top model in my book, happy new year x

misskiss on

Ana Barros is soooo beautiful, shes modeled for practicully everything I hope she gets more recognition. But i love cindy crawford shes 40ish and freakin hot. Also Mila jovovich is stunning, and Giselle is fierce and beautiful

PAMELA on

i think my favorite has always been TYRA BANKS because shes down to earth she buys cheap things like everyone else and is comfortable in her body even with cellulite and obviously the industry accepted her like that i also like her because she tries to help people
i also like ADRIANA LIMA , HEIDI KLUM [ because she could run down the catwalk after having kids ]

PAMELA on

my favorite would have to be TYRA BANKS because shes down to earth she tries to help people and she buys cheap stuff just like every other normal person i admire her work because shes comfortable in her body even if she has cellulite and the industry accepted her like that
i also like ADRIANA LIMA AND HEIDI [ BECAUSE SHE CAN WALK DOWN THE RUNWAY AFTER GIVIN BIRTH] IMAN AND KATE MOSS OH AND I CANT FORGET JANICE DICKINSON

Leilani on

Iman because of her grace, class, and beauty that cannot be matched; Heidi because of her naturally stunning beauty and great personality; and Tyra. Even though Tyra gets a little ridiculous sometimes I still love the girl.

Anabelle on

Gemma Ward! She is insanely exotic and takes amazing pictures! She is goregous!

lizzy on

heidi is the only model that seems normal. when you see her on tv she seems to be a very genuine person. tyra is the most self centered model out their. watching her show makes me sick, she constantly flips the subject to herself. i also have heard many stories about what a diva she is. she comes across and a nice person, but what you see is NOT what you get.

Ashlee on

Ronak, I do not think that a model, or for that matter, any woman, has to be thin to be beautiful. The world is full of diverse people, we cannot all be thin. I think Tyra is very beautiful, she represents the girl next door, who looks great in anything. I think that is the definition of a model. Someone who looks great in anything, and everything.

I like Heidi Klum the best. I think she looks beautiful in anything and who do you know that can bounce their body back in shape after 3 children the way she can!? She seems like a fabulous mother and a terrific wife. She is defintely a great role model.

Lizzy on

I love Heidi Klum, she has the greatest personality and is gorgeous! Niki Taylor and Cindy Crawford are also such classic supermodels!

RONAK on

RE: Aslee,Angie,M Renee,Rebecca
My point is that she is too FAT to be a model of
the calibre of Gisele or Cindy.
No doubt she is a beautiful woman,but we’ll need
strong ramps for someone of that size walking down them.
There is a difference between skinny and thin,
same way between a model and overweight.

Martina on

Karolina Kurkova is the best!

Martina on

Karolina Kurkova is the best.

Jeneen on

Iekeliene Stange is hands down the best model right now. She has personality and edge and her beauty is easily copied like with Gemma Ward and other models.

Derek S.Watson on

My personal favorite is Yasmeen Ghauri. No one has ever walked a runway the way she used to. And no one ever will. She was out when all the “girls” were out. She was on every cover & runway. But I guess the ALL-time supermodel would have to be the timeless IMAN. Beauty,Brains & Grace. I met her at 1 of her book signings. She truly is BEAUTIFUL!. Flawless to a fault.

OVIAN!! on

BEAUTYS, YAMILIA DIAZ AND VALERIA MAZZA!!!!!

Q.Q on

SOMEONE FORGOT TO MENTION IN WIKIPEDIA THAT YASMIN GAURIS MOM IS ALSO PART LEBANESE!!!HER FATHERS PAKISTANI AND HER MOM IS PART GERMAN AND PART LEBANESE I REMEMBERED!!!

Annie on

I love Tyra, Heidi, and Giselle

Unie on

UJJWALA RAUT is Beautiful.

Quinci on

Definately not Tyra.

Brittiany on

I’m a big fan of the late eighties early nineties supermodels. Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford. My more recent favorites are Giselle Bundchen and Adriana Lima. Carmen Kass is definitely in the top ten for me personally. Also Naomi Campbell is a favorite although her behavoir is deplorable. I think Tyra’s body is gorgeous (she’s curvy) her face is pretty but I like her better on TV. I think she was selling herself short as a model and deserved bigger and better things. Just my 2 cents..

carol on

i really hate tyra she think shes the next Oprah or something. and shes really pushy in the show if you noticed.. she trys to make you spill out the truth or something.. shes fake fo real.. i like Giselle Bunchen and Adriana Lima.

Josie on

Kate Moss is the ultimate supermodel to me. She hasnt walked the catwalks in ages but her style still influences countless people. My other fave is Linda Evangelista, my Canadian homegirl. Represent!

Q.Q on

I KNOW I AM GOING OF THE TOPIC OF MODELING BUT I ADVICE PEOPLE NOT TO ALL RELY ON WIKIPEDIA FOR ACCURATE RELEVANT INFORMATION,IN THE OTHER HAND THE INFORMATION THAT THE WRITER HAS ON THE PERSON IS SOMEWHAT ACCURATE BUT PEOPLE CAN WRITE THESE BIOGRAPHIES AND IF THEY WANT TO LEAVE OUT SOMETHING THEY COULD. STILL PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO RE-EDIT AND ERASE INFORMATION THAT ALSO DEFINDS THE PERSON .

Mer on

I think that Gisele is the prettier!
I don’t like Tyra..she is ok, but i don’t like her..
GISELE!GISELE!My brazilian sister!hahahahahaha

Sam on

well personally.. i think there are many diffrent types of beautys theres the classic look, the seductive, the bubbly (omg!! im so cute), and just plain all beauty.
but i think what defines a supermodel is something out of the ordinary,
because i mean basically thats what makes them “super” models so im going to have to go with Adriana Lima
shes drop dead gorgeous and its rare to find someone with all of her physical assests!!!

Vickie on

OMG
i totally luv iman… she is so perfect…. all the rest are just models, but iman is georgous and graceful… she deserves to win.

Melanie on

Tyra, Tyra, Tyra!! She is #1!!

Julia on

KATE MOSS!!!!!

Steven on

Cindy Crawford is absolutely the best!! ok, she is 40, but she is much more beautiful than many 20-year old models on runways now…

kara on

Tyra Banks must have had plastic surgery…there’s no natural way to look that ugly. Okay, fine, she’s pretty, but it really looks like she had plastic surgery. Also, on ANTM, she thinks she’s all that and she’s not. Personally, I like Heidi Klum. She’s beautiful and natural looking, and she’s got a great figure after 3 kids.

hallah on

Alessandra Ambrosio is the prettiest model ever.

jody on

NATALIA VODIANOVA. I’M OBSESSED.

Orsi on

Kate Moss, obviously. Even if I love Tyra Banks, she’s a wonderful woman with good sense of humour, and a big heart filled with kindness, when it comes to supermodels, my first thought is Kate Moss. She has everything that is needed (and, sometimes even that is not needed), from the perfect shape through her ‘canvas’ face that is the dream of everyone (I mean make-up artists now, not average girls, but…) because it’s so versatile until the rocker boyfriend. Yeah, the scandal is also part of a topmodel’s life, just to make herself be recognised. The cocaine thing was horrible, but being the 90’s and the 21st century’s (so far) no.1 fashion symbol (Sienna Millers come and go every x years but Moss is eternal) means something, doesn’t it???!?!?!

Janice on

My favourite models are Alex Wek from the Sudan and Heidi Klum from Europe. Both are natural and beautiful and represent the true elegance of women of all races and cultures.

Cat on

Tyra Banks is my favorite super model she is intelligent and kind hearted which is rare to see in super models. She’s proven to the world that Black women are truly powerful and something to pay close attention to.

NINNA on

KATE BLANCHETTE AND IMAN ARE ALOT ALIKE IN A WAY, KATE BLANCHETTE HAS A SHARP ELEGANT TWIST TO HER ,SHE HAS TWIGGEYS SINCE OF STYLE AND AUDREY HEPBURN AND QUEEN ELIZABETHS CONFIDENCE WITH A TWIST,IMAN IS ELEGANT AND CONFIDENT WITH A REGAL AIR ,SIMILAR TO THE ENGLISH , I PREFFER WARRIS DIRRIE MAINLY FOR THE EXPIERIENCE SHE HAS BEEN THROUGH .

ENRA on

JANICE DICKENSON AND ANGELINA JOLIE RESEMBLE IN A WAY ,THEY BOTH HAVE THE LOOK OF BOTOX ,EXCEPT ONE IS MORE NATURAL,WHAT A LOVELY AFFECT THAT IS.

Fatima on

What happened to Cindy Crawford…I mean the women is 40 and she still looks drop dead gorgeous and u have to give it up for Kate Moss that chick can pull off anything!!

Xenna on

I think there are tall and beautiful women in such places as Nigeria ,There skin there Lips and Eyes ,Naomi Campbell resembles them,full features and tall ,they of course will not be made up ,its almost as looking at Naomi without makeup, but who knows what the end result might be, its just to bad there getting to many from the regions of the Ukraine .

Eunice on

Absolutly yes I love Tyra sweet peas.

B.B on

UJJWALA RAUT -VERY BEAUTIFUL -INDIAN BEAUTY ,MODELING WORLD !!!!! ASIAN MODELS PLEASE!!!!!

Lenna on

I like Andi Muise, Jeisa Chiminazzo and Karolina Kurkova. Gemma Ward and Daria Werbowy look like aliens, and it’s kind of gross. Gemma has weird teeth too, and she’s not that special, just ..strange looking, and not sexy.

sweety on

All I can say is that she is an beautiful African American Super Model.

Amy on

Alessandra Ambrosio! Amazing!

Jen on

I think Hedi Klum is the besy model she is the most beautiful and graceful.

DeMonte Bowens on

I think that Tyra Banks is the most beautiful model out there in today’s society. She is fashion savvy and can definitely work the catwalk.

Lily-Rose on

Iman! She is the only woman in the world that i envy. She is beyond gorgeous and is married to the one and only David Bowie. Any other actress/model/singer/”superstar” takes a backseat to this woman’s beauty and level of elegance and grace

Abby on

My favorite model is Gisele Bundchen. Although she is new she has such natural beauty. You never hear any bad reports about her either or at least i dont. Unlike Kate Moss she is a perfect role model for young girls.

mia on

i love both tyra and heidi! i love americas next top model, and project runway! LOVE THEM BOTH

Jordan on

H E I D I K L U M!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 She’s absoluetly gorgeous!! She has a great marriage and three adorable babies. I mean, like if she can do modeling,have a family, have a show (Project Runway), do absoluetly fabsolous in all of these things and still manage to look great and have a glorious marriage,then she REALLLY puts the SUPER in supermodel!!!

amanda on

well, i’m from BRASIL, so i have to choose a brazilian one! gisele and adriana are absolutely gorgeous, but i think alessandra ambrósio has the most beautiful face and an incredible body! but my truly favorite model is DANIELLA CICARELLI.. does anybody know her? she is also from brasil and she got married to RONALDO a couple of years ago!well, i’m from BRASIL, so i have to choose a brazilian one! gisele and adriana are absolutely gorgeous, but i think alessandra ambrósio has the most beautiful face and an incredible body! but my truly favorite model is DANIELLA CICARELLI.. does anybody know her? she is also from brasil and she got married to RONALDO a couple of years ago!

Noelle on

KATE MOSS. She is absolutely gorgeous, has a wonderful fashion sense, and has that carefree bad-girl personality. Models like Heidi Klum get annoying fast with the high-pitched girly-girly super-nice act. Kate is real and so much prettier than any other model.

Gemma Ward would be my second choice. She’s the next Kate Moss. Most older people don’t know about her, but she is EVERYWHERE in young fashion. On every runway, on every fashion magazine. Exotic and gorgeous.

alex on

I HATE TYRA ,, BUT LOOOOOOVE CINDY CRAWFORD ANYWAY TONX OF PPL SAY I LOOK LIKE HER!! AND THAT I COULD BE A MODEL

Cheryl on

Tyra is definitely the most charismatic and intelligent supermodel and she seems like she would be really nice and fun to hang out with.
But she’s not who I think of anymore when I think of “supermodels” on the runway. I think Gisele comes to mind first in that aspect.

Racchel on

Well personally my favorite models are (and the nominee’s are! lol) Karolina Kurkova, Heidi Klum And Selita Banks. Karolina Because; she’s gorgeous, she has a great body, she looks great in and out of clothes. Heidi Because; She Has the most adorable voice, Amazing Body, Looks Gorgeous Pregnant And Has Great Style. Selita Because; She looks like a cute little birdie, has a sweet voice, she has a cute personality, toned body, Great hair And Pretty face.

Mutz on

I really like Ivke Sturm, she’s a topmodel from the Netherlands and she is very beautiful! I don’t like Tyra on this photo, she has to much make-up on!

Erim on

I personally love ANTM but Tyra Bank is full of herself, she likes the sound of her own voice and i think she should talk less. Heidi Klum and Gemma Ward are my faves.

rae kinniebrew on

DEFINITELY, TYRA BANKS!!!!!!!!

Jody on

Linda Evangelista

Kristina on

I thought of Tyra first when asked who do you think of first as a super model. However, I think the ultimate super model has to be Heidi Klum! She is beautiful, a mother, a wife and supports great causes!

meena on

I love Tyra. She is a really woman and down to earth

Malisa on

Hey RONAK, Tyra is not fat to be a model and she quit the model job because to do The Next… by the way she got beautiful curves…;)

heather on

I Think Heidi klum is beautiful. she has so much going for her. I also like Tyra Banks, she has done so much with her Life. You go Tyra.

Naomi seems ot have a personality problem, I dont know why the fashion Industry tolerates that sort of behaviour.
One strike, Two strike, three strikes kick her out of the Industry, she is a bad example.

lizz on

i really like tyra!! i like americas next top model and i think she has done a lot for the modelig industry. can’t wait for the next cycle!!

monaco on

Tyra acts to silly, marilyn monroe was the most beautiful woman not sure if she was ever a super model. Iman has that african grace about her that makes her stand out.

Melissa on

I think they are all Super Models. They all have their own unique look. Not sure if it is in the dictionary, but I thought what makes you a Super Model is that every one wants you in their shows, and you are a celebrity, everyone recognizes you, and knows your name. Personality wise, Heidi and Tira smile the most.

tiff on

I LOVEEE tyra i tink she is one of the best people out there and even if she dont model no more she is tryna show dat even after being in the spotlight she has more than a body image but brains and an inside dat really cares bout the people out there and she is soo down to earth and real she is deff my favourite…..i also love Iman soo graceful and lady like…i also love Heidi she is soo funny and family focused and i loved her on project runway…my top 3

AFRICAN on

EVEN THOUGH THIS IS ABOUT MODELING ,TO BAD AFRICAN AMERICAN ACTRESSES AS PAM GRIER AND DORATHY DANDRIDGE AND HER MOM DID NOT HAVE THE CHANCE AS (AMERICAN) MARILYN MANROE,BUT I HAVE TO AGREE IMAN AND CLAUDIA SCHIFFER TO ME HAVE ELEGANCE WITH A SINCE OF STYLE DAVID BOWIE TO AND .

Kelima on

I totally agree with with the comment below me about Iman! I love her and I think she is the ultimate super model.

downinalbion on

my fav is definetly kate moss. she is so original and she always wears the clothes, never letting them wear her. plus, she doesnt care what people think and has cheekbones that could cut glass.

Red on

Im surprised no one has mentioned Naomi. Being a supermodel despite popular belief is about the look not character which Naomi definitely still possesses. Unlike alot of the other models out there she has natural beauty and broke into a world of aesthetic stratification and broke through to all levels of visual beauty. I hope you guys are’nt falling for all the Tyra hype, she’s a cry baby! Naomi will still be looking flawless and in perfect shape when Tyra will be hitt’n 250lbs, Heidi and Cindi will have more cracks in their faces than on the side walk. And the brazilian and argetenians will move on to porn cause sex sells! Don’t be hate in, OKAY!

There may be people out there who don’t like Tyra, but she is a supermodel because she expresses herself beyond the runway and all the lights on her. She was brave enough to express her fears, her angers, her tears, and go undercover for many projects. A supermodel isn’t just one who appears in a thousand Vogue spreads. Tyra may exaggerate somethings, but at least she’s OUT THERE, she’s not affraid to be a fool… Beautiful models like Gemma Ward, or Gisele Buncheon are mostly seen for their physical beauty, whereas Iman or Tyra are also very much known for who they really are.

What does Tyra talk show have to do with her modeling? She was a wonderful model who knows the business well. Most of the comments are reflected towards things she’s done on the show. I beleive she’s the most well known supermodel, because of everything she has done for the young girls on ANTM. Most of the girls that did not win still got modeling contracts from being on the show. Has any other supermodel done anything to help young girls learn the modeling business? NO. Not until Tyra came out with her show. As far as the comment about her being fat, some people can be very cruel. She is a real women with beautiful curves. Stop haten!

Tyra is stunning. Heidi is gorgeous, down to earth and her personality always shines through. Gisele is beautiful, natural and showstopping. Christie is other-worldly and sooo sweet. BUT (and its not just ‘coz I’m english too) KATE MOSS will ALWAYS win-she is without a doubt a living legend with that face, her style, she never talks to the press-i dnt no any other model guite like her-the rest try too hard but kate is effortless nd cool!!!!-i luv her nd her style NO 1 will ever top that!!!! 11/10

I like Tyra but, i think she wears entirely too much make up. I am afraid if she takes off all that make-up there will be a basket ball player underneath. She is a beautiful woman and all that make-up makes her look old and fake. Tyra a fashion tip for you: a little goes along way sweetie!

I think Cindy Crawford is the greatest supermodel of all time.In Shape Magazine,she made newss for not being stick-thin.I admire supermodels who think of their health instead of how skinny they can get without killing themselves.Cindy Crawford is an amazing example of a role model.

Just JAK on

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tyra, but Linda Evangalista is the quintessential supermodel in my humble opinion.

Ana on

Gisele… she just has this flair! Awesome.

Fallon on

Tyra is my favorite model. She’s simply the beautiful around everybody wishes they resembled. The ultimate supermodel is Giselle. I even gave my daughter her middle name, so that one day when she asks me why I’ll tell her she was the hottest and the highest paid model in the world when you were born, why not?

Jill Butler on

I think Christy Turlington and Iman are the classic all time beautiful supermodels. Tyra Banks is also a fantastic model who has broken the mold of what a “supermodel” is. She has managed to spread her empire to a talk show and an excellent reality-based modelling contest. I say “You go girl”!

Leah on

tyra banks is so amazingly pretty she also is a good person and seems to have fun as well as working too!!! i think that she is a good roll model to teens and to adults as well
keep up the good work tyra
leah

ppp on

kate moss definetly. shes more than just a runway model shes got style, charisma, the body. shes may not be perfect but that makes her even more special. also gemma ward, gisele and adriana lima. gemma ward because she is so pretty, like a baby doll or something. i used to hate gisele untill that d&g commercial for “the one”. that changed everything for me. and do i even have to explan adriana lima? shes just simply hot.

ILOVEYOU! on

Ronak!,
UMM TYRA BANKS IS NOT FAT AT ALL!!! UR PROBABLY JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE YOU DONT HAVE HER FIGURE!!! QUIT PUTTING PEOPLE DOWN TO MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER!!!! AND IF SHES SO “FAT” THEN HOW HAS SHE MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WALKING THE RUNWAY!?!??!?! YOU PROBABLY JUST WISH THAT YOU HAVE THE LOOKS LIKE SHE DOES!!!!!!

JEANELLE on

I YOU REALLY HOT…..I LIKE YOUR SEXY BUT MODEST LOOKS
STAY BLACK AND SEXY

angel on

i think all of u ppl that eaid nasty things about tyra should be ashamed. i bet none of u look as good as her she has shape something u all wish u had, she is kind and not egtistical like most models. just look at how the modles were in madrid they were just skin and bones. it ppl like u that are reasponsibe for the death and sickness of so many girls in the world, at least tyra is doing something about it u guys are just HATERS. SHAME ON U ALL FOR THE NASTY COMMENTS AGAINST HER

NITA on

RONAK- you need professional help if you think TYRA is fat. You must have an eating disorder, trust me, my father is a physician and you need help. Tyra is gorgeous inside and out!

SK on

Adriana Lima is the most exotic looking of them all. So many aspiring models look the same these days but nobody has a face like Adriana. She’s got fire in her face and has an amazing body! I would like to have her body and Gisele’s legs. LOL

Theresa on

Niki Taylor is by far the most beautiful on the inside and out!!!!!!!!!

sexy grandpa on

she looks ugly as heck. although……. she has nice boobs

Bella on

Heidi, hands down! For such a beautiful woman, she always come across as so humble. I admire her image.

Tyra, to me, carries an “Yeah, I know I’m hot stuff” attitude that just isn’t appealing.

Lisa on

if had to choose, it would be Iman and Beverly Johnson.

GRACE on

AND I AM SURE ANGEL THAT YOU HAVE SAID SOME THINGS BEHIND TYRAS BACK, I THOUGHT YOU WERE INTO ACTRESESS NOT MODELS,I THOUGHT YOU WERE INTO EDGY TYPE AVIATOR GIRLS AS ELIZABETH STAR KATE BLANCHETTE AND XY JAIMIE LEE CURTIS WHO SO REMINDS ME OF KATHERINE AND AUDREY HEPBURN OR MAYBE EVEN BOND BABE XY CAROLINE CROSSEY.

LYNN on

Alan Nakashima ,she is half asian but still not enough.

jasmine on

sharika is the best looking

Haley on

ILOVEYOU!~ Why do you ever bother opening your conceited mouth?? Do us all a favor and keep it closed, because all of the things that come out of it are ridiculous!!

Sarah on

Gemma Ward all the way.

Jane on

My fav is the only ubermodel around, GISELE!!!

pinkfish on

gisele

max on

Yes Iman is a fashion Icon and a beautiful women, Tyra Banks model turned junk T.V. star. Why do we attribute 15 minutes of fame on T.V. as being the most famous and known model personality in the USA. Ask men or fashion agencies if they would prefer a Heidi or Gisele rather than a Tyra and I am sure you would get a more realistic answer…….

Marco on

You guys should dig a bit deeper. Martine from Montreal’s Folio tops them all. You might have a bit of a problem finding her on the net, but she’s there. Not her fault, Montreal’s such a small market!

TK on

Rene Simonson is by far the most beautiful…

RELEVANCE on

Rene Simonson is certainly not the most Beautiful model,such as blonde Models are not the most beautiful models by farr!!!!!!!

RELEVENCE!! on

I ment Blonde models just like Rene Simonson.

Zee on

Roshumba is a beautiful black model!!!!

Judi on

I like both Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks not only as Super Models, but as role models. They take modeling for the JOB it is and have not bought into the hype of the proposed lifestyle of drugs and promiscuity.

Neither of them seem to act better than anyone else or take themselves too seriously, they both have a humbleness about them which makes them seem more attainable. Both have strong family values, which in the arena they work in is very difficult to hold on to. They both also seem not to believe the hype and frenzy that others try to whip up around them.

I could easily see us as girlfriends hanging out at the mall, with our guys at the beach [I’d be the one in the moo moo, or on vacation with our families, with the only difference being how DROP DEAD GORGEOUS they are when they choose to rock what the good Lord gave them. Both seem to have had a good solid upbringing before they realized how beautiful they are.

kenisha on

i think tyra is the best supermodel of all time cuz sheis so.it kinda unexsplainable
but i love tyra and im her #1fan

Diana on

Tyra is my favorite of all times. Go Tyra! I luv the way she represent us women with some baggage, notluggage. She shows that it is ok to be 149lbs, 155lbs and still have a body and shape to die for. Dont worry what they are saying Tyra, they like what they see and are mad. For what, because they dont have what you have. Thats it. When someone says something about my weight or anything about me, I just think of it this way, “You mad ’cause you dont have hips like mine” LOL…. Go Tyra you doing da damn thang……Houston, Tx

Sarah Elizabeth McKinney on

Everyone forgets, or barely knows, supermodel Gia Carangi. She just went by GIA. She was a late 70s early 80s model, she was definitely the most raw, beautiful woman I have ever seen. She makes these other models look like “models” and not “supermodels”. Wow…she died in 1986 from AIDS.

nicole on

Valeria Mazza…¡definetly!

Carl on

I love argentinian supermodel Valeria Mazza.

Jayhawk on

I’m sorry but i don’t see the beauty in Gisele. she’s got that hot body but that face. Gisele fans please teel me what beauty you see in this woman, because all i can see is a mess. Kate Moss – another one. How did they become models? I guess the bodies. anyway, Adriana , Alessandra, Heidi. Petra Nemcova’s gotta be the best. None of the others have the sweet personality, cute face and gorgeous personality. She’s relly underrated and beautiful. She wants to help the world. I can think of no other model who wants to help society as much as she does.

Jayhawk on

Petra Nemcova! Beauty, personality, and she wants to help society. whatmore can you ask from a model? not much. Someone explain to me the appeal of Gisele, she’s not that beautiful in my eyes. nowhere near Adriana, Heidi,Alessandra ,Petra and other hot models. can’t stand that face.

Ana on

my top 5 list:
1. Miranda Kerr
2. Gemma Ward
3. Heidi Klum
4. Vlada
5. Sascha

I love them all! I think everyone of this woman or girls have something special – what I love!

traja on
