A stunning icon of fashion has finally been elevated to the number one spot; Barbie unseats the equally curvaceous Lara Stone for number one model on top 50. The leggy supermodel has been modeling for the past 51 years, so she has certainly paid her dues in the industry, celebrate her beauty and lengthy career in fashion, film and television.

    Even if it an April Fool’s Joke I still approve. Last year’s joke was a riot though. So many people got pissed and I loved every minute of it.

  14. Marco says:

    OMG I’m reading that Lara shouldn’t be in the top 5O anymore because she’s already an Icon and she should be moving to Icon list HAHA!! actually that made me laugh a little SHE’S NOT AN ICON, she need a lot more to be and Icon, Gisele Bundchen is an Icon, Kate Moss is an Icon, Lara is just a little baby among them, she’s great model but people sometime overrate her like to much … Actually that could be a great Prank, move Lara to Icon list LOL

  15. Alegra says:

  22. modellobello says:

    at MARCO..

    WHO SAID THAT YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR MANY YEARS TO BE ICONIC? SHES “OVERRATED” BECAUSE SHES ICONIC!!!!!!! PEOPLE FIND HER SPECIAL… THEREFORE SHES AN ICON… THERE NO RULES IN MODELING.. LARA SET THE TREND AGAIN FOR THE GAP TOOTH AND EVEN LOOKS THAT ARE UNCONVENTIONAL AT THE TIME SHE STARTED…. MODELS LIKE LETS SAY ISABELLI FONTANA AND RAQUEL ZIMMERMAN ARE GREAT MODELS ALTHOUGH, THEY ARE NOT TRULY “ICONIC” WITH LARA AND EVEN AGYNES DEYN, THEY REALLY SET TRENDS JUST LIKE WHAT TWIGGY DID… ALSO, FOR THE 90TH ANIVERSARY OF VOGUE PARIS, PEOPLE KNEW IT WAS LARA EVEN THOUGH HALF HER FACE WAS COVERED…. SHE IS AN ICON!!!!!!! NUFF SAID!!!!!

  23. Nigel S. says:

    To Marco’s point – Much more people know the names of Isabeli & Raquel than they do Lara. They have both walked countless runways – graced countless campaigns and edits and have long infiltrated the concious of mass society. We’re a bit quick today to give people so much more than they’ve earned.

    A real icon is someone who has stood the test of time or has the ever-brilliant promise to do so. Someone of whom exudes a specific personality and the time of such coronation. I find Lara to be a stranger but she does infact have iconic appeal but as I express in a previous post – time is still needed before Lara is labeled as an Icon. Anything else is just forcibly premature.

    But hey – we can believe whatever we so wish. If she’s an icon for then hey!

  24. Nik says:

    Great point Nigel S!! (I always like ‘hearing’ your POV) That is the exact definition of an icon, and you do have to put in your time. I think Lara’s time has come. Now while she only has about 6 years in (compared to Isabeli’s 10+) she has had such a ‘legendary’ career already. She has that incredible contract with Calvin Klein, fragrance contracts galore, mag covers to boot, and practically RULES Vogue Paris. It just seems that all the major clients always want her. Its her appeal (and bangin’ bid) that has made her so enduring, and just like the Energizer Bunny……she keeps going, and going. :) She isnt going anywhere.
