Lara Stone for Louis Vuitton Spring 2010

There’s a new No 1 on MDC’s Top 50 and it is that girl that the industry can’t stop talking about. Lara Stone has been such a flash point  of inspiration for editors like Carine Roitfeld and designers like Riccardo Tisci  and Marc Jacobs that we can’t help but be excited to see a girl who has made such an interesting career climb sitting at No 1.

  4. Laila says:

    Natasha Poly deserved that spot :( Though Lara has blown up in the past year more, Natasha has maintained a high position consistently for so long.

  5. Mike says:

    I have to agree with Laila, Natasha Poly really does deserve #1. That being said, Lara is absolutely incredible and I’m thrilled that such a talented model is in the top spot.

  6. poo says:

    Lara has crossed over in a way Natasha hasn’t. She deserves to be number 1. btw the more I see the Vuitton campaign, the more I like it. The dirt on her legs in some of the shots, the styling, it’s tremendous!

  7. STYLE101 says:

    I don’t like Lara =( But she may represent a breakthrough in Fashion industry.Skinny won’t disappear abruptly of course,but clearly normal size beauty is more acceptable since Lara got the No.1.Anyway,Congrats Congrats!!!!

  8. Michael ( Boss Models NYC) says:

    YESSSS I LOVE HER!!!
    WOOOT

  9. Justin says:

    I love Lara, BUT i think Karlie Kloss deserved that spot. Oh well…good job Lara!

  10. Darrika says:

    Oh my sweet Yahweh! I feel bad for Natasha tho. :(

  11. Marck says:

    Love Lara!!!!Congrats!!!
    But i think Raquel still the nº1 model in the business. Glad she is in the Icon Rank now!

  12. Jesus says:

    that spot was so for natasha! i was so waiting for it! no way a girl that has stayed in her carreer for so much longer and was asked for more got beat by lara! the only reason lara got big was because she was “fat”! i’m so pissed at you guys! :’( and you still have natasha tied for the number two spot with sasha… this is why i don’t like your list… is more like top 60 or 70 with all these ties… and vlada isn’t even on your list.. i’m not even going to pay attention to that list anymore…

  13. alek says:

    I LIKE LARA BUT I THINK THIS POSITION IS FOR NATASHA POLY IM SORRY :)

  14. AJP says:

    THANK THE LORD!

  15. Zanita says:

    Wheres Raquel?

  16. Oshcar says:

    Good for Lara. It was gonna be a tuffy between Lara and Natasha, and I was rooting for Natasha because she was the best all around, editorial, campaign, runway, cover, all. But Lara was my next choice and I’m glad a model with such womanly features got the spot. That definitely opens the doors for others.

  17. simon says:

    so wonderful , lara is so nice

  18. NABATEREGGA RITAH says:

    HEY THIS IS SO COOL I WOULD LIKE THE JOIN THE SAME BUT I AM A BIT SHY THOUGH I HAVE THE POTENTIAL

  19. juju says:

    hello,natasha poly???

  20. VuHoang says:

    oh my god i cant believe it, Natasha Poly should be at that spot. Btw Raquel has became incon :))

  21. gise says:

    on point. despite our obsession in the industry with what has become unhealthy thinness, lara represents the kind of woman that can cross over and break through like gisele did a decade ago. kudos and best of luck!

  22. Joe says:

    I am a bit surprised . Haven’t other models booked more ss10 campaigns than Lara? i thought it was all about the campaigns…

  23. All about Models says:

    I don’t think she’s the Top 1 … It has to be another face. She’s not doing shows a lot.

  24. kay says:

    lara deserrrrrrrves it!!! an inspiring source!!! i looooooove her!

  25. zoo says:

    i prefer GISELE

  26. ellen says:

    No Lara really deserves that spot. Lara has so many covers and campaigns. Natasha only did Gucci and didn’t have that many eds en covers. Yes Lara congrats, you’re these days the only number 1.

  27. ellen says:

    and come on guys, it’s just a ranking :S be happy for Lara. And Karlie Kloss? No these models from 5 to 1 are the ones that are owning the buisness for quite a while now. karlie is quite new.

  28. ellen says:

    Lara deserves this spot, congrats.
    Natasha only did Gucci and didn’t have that many covers or eds.
    Karlie Kloss? No she is quite new. The numbers 5 – 1 are onwning the buisness for quite a while now.

  29. Greg says:

    maybe this will make the models eat a little more now that a larger model is #1. Lara is #1 because she dosn’t give a s**t, she has attitude and if she wants to eat; she will eat – and thats why we all love her.

    were all sick of these stick thin, lifeless, gloomy models!!!

  30. Mango says:

    She so deserves this! Great choice Models.com!!!!

  31. ellen says:

    it’s not about the shows. many models quit with the shows when they’re established. natasha dit one campaign, lara did 3 and also pre spring Sonya Rykiel and s/s 10 eres swimcollection. Lara has also the attitude like Greg says.

  32. Rafael Borges says:

    apesar de não ser brasileira tem uma beleza tipica, tem corpo, boa escala para ela, um chame os dentes separados, porem ficou melhor morena como vimos na vogue Paris, sexy de mais ….

  33. 1987 says:

    It’s about time!
    Lara Stone should already have been the number 1 model in jan. 2009.

  34. Backless says:

    You are so quick to jump.

  35. Iwillbethere says:

    OH MY GOD! Yay. I mean I love Raquel but Lara shows that anyone can do it no matter how un-model size you are. :)

  36. ela says:

    Seriously people, NATASHA Poly is not #1 get over it! And TO JESUS TO CALL LARA “FAT” REALLY, HOW CHILDISH ARE YOUR BEHAVIORS, NATASHA IS NOT #1 SO U GUYS HAVE TO WHINE, POOR BABY! We all know our world is unfair,right?! WAIT A SECOND, DO U EVEN THINK NATASHA POLY CARES ABOUT YOU? Natasha poly is an exceptional model, we all know, but Lara has that thing the models from the 80′s and 90′s had. she is a star, people would still probably remember her in 10-15 years. But i don’t’ think people will of Natasha period.

  37. jakebarnes says:

    In the end, Lara Stone is a personality. Natasha Poly is an amazing model, but not much else.

  38. Marc says:

    MDC Lost all the credibility!!!
    Natasha’s always be the ONE

  39. Alberto says:

    as much as I love Lara…I am quite shocked that Natasha isn’t number 1…

    while Lara has definately broken barriers with her body…she is a girl that can’t keep her clients….Natasha has been a Gucci girl for years..and she keeps resigning her contract…Natasha owns the runways, while Lara doesn’t as much as her…sure Lara gets more covers of Vogue..but Natasha gets quite a lot herself…Natasha’s career has been amazing since day 1 until now…Lara is nowhere as established as Natasha is…

    but then again..this list really doesn’t mean much..I mean they still have Catherine McNeil that high up there..when she hasn’t done anything at all for the last 2 seasons……

  40. Jacobin says:

    Natasha should have been number one. No doubt about it.

  41. André says:

    Parabéns a Lara Stone, ela é linda e merece. Tem feito otimos trabalhos.
    Mas pq jogaram a Raquel para o ranking de Icones. Alguém pode me esclarecer ???

  42. Kate R. says:

    I’m not a fan of neither Natasha, nor Lara. But i rather see Natasha on a position of #1

  43. allen says:

    Oh, my God! if raquel is an icon, so is mariacarla!
    MCB has an extensive body of work.
    She has been in the industry for more than a decade.
    She has done campaigns from chanel to givenchy.
    Who does these rankings?
    What is Freja doing there in number 3?
    Gaawwwwdd!!!

  44. royy says:

    DEFINATELY NUMBER ONE

  45. ff says:

    sorry but i feel very dissapointed with Lara being the first, sorry but I think Anja, Natasha, or even Freja deserve that place, sorry but I don’t find Lara spectacular, however glad to see Raquel in icons she started modeling in the nineties, she had to be on icons…

  46. Modellobello says:

    WOW ITS ABOUT TIME!!!!! LARA IS SUPER DESERVING OF THIS!!! SHE IS MORE OF AN ICON THOUGH!!!!! ALLEN: I SO AGREE WITH YOU! WITH EVERYTHING THAT U HAVE SAID! RAQUEL IS NOT ICONIC!! MUCH AS I LOVE HER.. I STILL DONT WANT TO BE BIAS!!! MCB IS NOT ICONIC THOUGH, BUT DESERVES TO BE NUMBER ONE! KARLIE SHOULD BE LIKE NUMBER TWO, SHE IS EVERYWHERE!!!! AGYNESS DEYN SHOULD BE AN ICON!!!!! SHE HAS EXPLODED IN SO LITTLE TIME!!!

  47. Modellobello says:

    ALSO GEMMA WARD SHOULD BE AN ICON BECAUSE SHE MADE DOLL FACE APPRECIATIVE BY THE WORLD!!

  48. KS says:

    NATASHA SHOULD BE IN THAT PIC.. SHE SHOULD.. (sigh)

  49. AJP says:

    All fucking right Natasha obviously doesn’t have the same request and desire that Lara has from clients. She’s a great model and a beautiful woman but Lara is definitely much more interesting and unique and that’s what makes her the #1 ranked model over Natasha.

  50. Nyxix says:

    Raquel is the NO. 13 in Top Icons

  51. Isis says:

    so.. where’s Raquel ??
    She isn’t on the chart.

  52. ixca says:

    I don´t think Lara deserves #1… in the other hand I don´t understand why number 5 is missing at the icon´s lists…

  53. Frankie says:

    Agreed with Laila & prefer Natasha to be at #1. Why Lara?
    http://modeavantstyle.blogspot.com/

  54. Anna says:

    Anja Rubik!!!

  55. Jessie says:

    Natasha Poly should have had that place…

  56. Edson Rosa says:

    Me who should remain the number 1 was the Brazilian Raquel Zimmermann or Polish Anja Rubik.

  57. John2_el_mejor says:

    Amazing!

    But Why doesn´t Karlie be on the top 5?

  58. Michael says:

    It’s kinda unfair, lara doens’t deserve this spot

  59. conchal says:

    absoluta !!

  60. Alan says:

    OK! I think she is super requested now, but Raquel is better!!

  61. Alan says:

    E para vc André a resposta, é claro que promoveram ela a icone porque ela já isso não é mesmo, ela já fez tudo que tnha para se fazer… Nada mais que merecido e eu penso que ela dará um pulo enorme na próxima estação porque sempre ela pega grandes trabalhos.

  62. usman says:

    NATASHA SHOULD BE # 1, LARA IS GOOD TOO, BUT NASTASHA SHOULD GET #1

  63. ellen says:

    raquel is moved to the icons DUH so she isn’t in the topmodels ANYMORE just like Gisele

  64. ellen says:

    and it’s lara’s OWN decision to do less shows. Lara choose the shows that she want to do. Lara doens’t need to do allt he shows, she is already in.

    damn, get over it. lara is # 1.

  65. ania says:

    raquel or natasha poly or any of these girls mentioned here don’t even come close to lara!!!
    great choice models.com!!!!!

  66. shepherd says:

    Natasha Poly, is my No:1#!
    but then i love all the models so congrats la stone.

  67. André says:

    Obrigado Alan. Também acho merecido o fato dela se tornar um ícone. Dá a ela um grande status no cenário da moda. Sinal de reconhecimento do seu otimo trabalho e versatilidade, assim como fizeram com a Isabeli Fontana.

  68. PAULO GÓIS says:

    EU NAO CONSIGO ENTENDER, POIS ISABELI FONTANA NUNCA FOI ELEITA A NUMERO UM DO MUNDO E SE TORNOU ICONE. ´´E CERTO QUE ELA ´´E LINDISSIMA, NO MEU VER, UMA DAS MAIS BELAS MODELOS DA ATUALIDADE, MAS ALGUEM PODERIA ME EXPLICAR O POR QUE DO PULO. FICO EXTREMAMENTE FELIZ POR RAQUEL SE TORNAR UM ICONE. A PERGUNTA EM RELAÇ~~AO A ISABELI PODE SER INTERPRETADA DEFORMA NEGATIVA, MAS NADA DISSO SOU F~~A DA MESMA, APENAS NAO ENTENDI. QUANTO A LARA SE TORNAR A Nº 01 ISSO FOI UM ABSURDO, POIS A MESMA ´´E FEIOSA EM RELAÇ~~AO AS OUTRAS MODELOS, ELA NA PASSARELA ANDA MEIO FEIOSO. GOSTARIA DE SABER TAMBEM O POR QUE DE UM MODELO PASSAR A SER ICONE E A QUE OCUPOU O POSTO DELA SER CHADA DE A Nº 01 DO MUNDO, ALGUEM PODERIA ME EXPLICAR ISSO TAMBEM, POIS NO MEU VER, SE ICONE ´´E O POSTO MAIS ALTO PARA UMA MODELO, ENTAO QUEM DEVERUIA SER CHAMADA DE A Nº 01 DO PLANETA SERIA A NOSSA FURAÇAO, A NOSSA MAGNIFICA, A NOSSA TUDO, A SUPER DAS SUPER GISEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELE BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNDCHEN

  69. JAYALBA says:

    Paulo, sua loka, a Gisele não é mais uma top model porque ela já era no começo da carreira, se vc ver na lista das ícones ela é número um, mas não pq ela seja uma, mas pq não existe uma lista de über-model, pois só Gisele é über-model, ou seja, ela está acima das top-models e das icon-models, entendeu? Ela já ultrapassou os limites da moda, ela é considerada a modelo mais importante de todos os tempos. Mais importante que Kate Moss, entendeu agora?

  70. Vosharap says:

    No! Natasha Poly completely deserves this, she has been around a LOT longer than Lara, and she has maintained that top status and deserves to be the Queen, why did you have Raquel as number one for so long? Because she too had that long running top status not Lara, Natasha will be remembered years from now, this is a huge disappointment MDC.COM, yeah Lara is different but she is not the top one at the moment…

  71. LARA APOLOGIZE NOW! says:

    Lara Stone OWES female photographers around the world a heartfelt and genuine APOLOGY for her IGNORANT, DISCRIMINATORY and STEREOTYPICAL comments in reference to her DISLIKE TOWARD working with FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHERS. Its not like we need another woman INSULTING and BELITTLING us female photographers who are working just as hard as male photographers to make it in this business.

    LARA said “Personally, I don’t like working with female photographers because they seem to never be able to make up their minds about what they want to do-with the exception of Inez because she always knows what she’s doing. But so many times it’s like, “Oh, let’s try this” and “Let’s try that” and “Let’s do this” and “Let’s do that.” It’s like, “For fuck’s sake, woman!”

  72. Luca says:

    this for me is ridicolous, i respect but i think the 1st place is for Natasha. Natasha is so beautiful, versatile, this thing not all models have, i mean Natasha is a girl for haute couture, a girl for a H&M campaign, she do all type of work, Lara is not versatile, for nothing, she has the same expression for all, i like her but Natasha is Natasha.
    I prefer her at all, i mean Natasha rocks the show, the photo, all
    models.com i think Natasha is the 1st, but i respect your opinion,
    i hope in a future Natasha will have this place, i hope^^
