The Models.com rankings return with a new look, a new attitude and more top models than you realized you could handle.
The fashion industry has changed dramatically in the years since the rankings launched. A model’s covers and campaigns still matter (the mainstay of the Top 50 in the past), but so does their presence in pop-culture, their interactions on social media and the longevity of their careers.
In this fast-moving new age there isn’t just one road to supermodeldom, as such the old numbered rankings needed to evolve. Looking to the factors that matter not only to clients, insiders and fans alike the revised rankings focus on the many facets of a model’s career.
Top 50 loses the numbers and hones in on the top girls working today. With an added sort feature you can track the list and see who’s on top based on the amount of top covers a model has scored, how many top campaigns she’s racked up in the past year and her following on social media.
