Walk the walk: Here are the models putting the most miles on the runway

The high fashion runway is many things: storied, hallowed grounds, born from the primordial soup of Paris salons and fashion parades; where supermodels are made–or aren’t; where humble careers can catch a first break; the vindication of a dream; a plane ticket and a visa stamp; a boot camp for green-footed fresh faces. Sometimes, for veterans, it’s just another day on the job. It’s the literal legwork, nevermind the castings, fittings, crack of dawn call times, muddy politics and a bone-tired showing-of-face at designer parties. At times, saying yes to scores of shows is painstaking, soul-crushing even, but for many models, another booking is not guaranteed–not even close. Showing up entertains the supposition that money may soon be in your pocket. It’s no wonder then the mention of the runway carries with it both a deeprooted sense of pride and frustration. While it’s not the only metric that defines their careers, it takes Odysseusian-levels of resolve to put in runway miles like these models have. Here is a list of the models who topped the charts the past 12 Fall and Spring seasons, not to mention girls like He Cong, Selena Forrest, Kiki Willems and Teddy Quinlivan who racked up an impressive aggregate gross over 2 years.

  1. Shocking that some of these wonderful models don’t get more magazine work. Josephine, Elisabeth, Ava and Harleth are more than accomplished models and some of the most beautiful women in the world, let alone having strong and identifiable personalities yet are only occaisionally seen in ads and editorials.
    Must be a frightening agent and agency war going on out there.

  2. Haha why would Kendall be anywhere in these ranks #thosegirls
    Kendall doesn’t deserve to model

  3. thanks really thank you for the effort
    It is unimaginable.
    for my kendal Jenner is a persona non grata in the industry, does not deserve to be a super model.
