The supermodel with the fastest rise to the top of the industry is indisputably Natalia Vodionova, converting the cachet of a Calvin Klein contract into full-on celebrity via her Vanity Fair profiles and Only Girl July 07 Vogue cover.
She has been a model with one of the most impeccable booking records of recent times with every single campaign being as prominent and as blue chip as they come (Prada, Prada fragrance, Gucci, Chanel, YSL, Missoni, Vuitton). Add to that major covers and a near monthly Only Girl rotation in US Vogue and Vogue Paris at her height and then the grand ring of a Lancome contract. Flawless!
What words do you use to invoke the specialness of Linda Evangelista? One of the greatest models of all time; her drive, beauty, chameleon quality and fashion intelligence has made her the grand dame of modeling. We hereby nominate her for a title. Lady Linda Evangelista sounds right, no?

With that landmark Estee Lauder contract, the one that platformed her in a massive worldwide ad buy alongside Carolyn Murphy and Liz Hurley, previous MODELS.com Cover Girl Liya went global. Since her 2005 US Vogue cover broke ( clients like Oscar de la Renta have kept her career fire burning.
There is a feeling that fashion will always need and that is the ideal of an obscenely rich, ultra-sexy, super-woman pulsing with an almost dismissive beauty. Nobody gives that feeling better than Ms Kass and for that reason she remains one of the most bankable faces (and bodies) in the business right now. Just ask the raft of clients who continue to sign her on as being vital to their brands. FW07: Just Cavalli FW08: Kenzo, Michael Kors
Vuitton's love for Eva has kept her in the spotlight season after season and paired with her editorial explorations with the likes of Inez and Vinoodh, Eva's legacy as a great model is completely sealed.
