Nothing will ever come close to the Supermodel Era during the 90s, but I feel a renaissance with models becoming household names is upon us. Personally, I say bring it on. I was a huge fan of Linda, Christy, Naomi and Cindy back in the day.
Vogue recently released their annual list of the fashion industry’s Top 10 female models and I thought I’d share it with you. I’m sure I’m not the only modelizer out there who might enjoy this. With regards to how Vogue determined which girl made the list is beyond me.

Thursday, April 2nd at the Grand Finale at Celebrities Night Club.
