Listomania from Models.com
The rankings are back with a fresh update just in time for fashion month The revised rankings reflect this new ethos, with next generation stars like Vanessa Axente and Edie Campbell rising through the ranks of the Top 50 and one of a kind talents like Freja Beha Erichsen and Sasha Pivovarova ascending to Icon status. Covers, campaigns, contracts and editorial buzz are still the most important factors in all rankings – as evidenced by the unstoppable trajectory of blue-chip queen, Saskia de Brauw and the rise of Chinese powerhouse Liu Wen – but the lists also take in new factors. As social media media continues to grow in importance the models who use it to their advantage enter into a new sphere of influence faster than you can say, Cara Delevingne.
This update also sees a new crop of Hot List Graduates (Chiharu Okunugi, Andreea Diaconu, Sam Rollinson, Amanda Murphy, Cora Emmanuel, Ashleigh Good and Tilda Lindstam) moving into the Top 50.
Of course shifts in the Top 50 aren’t the only part of the story – the Money Girls Ranking has been amended to include that special class of girl clients are willing to pay top dollar to get. With high profile contracts on the rise and brands rediscovering the importance of a signature face the money ranking is more important than ever. Selected via work for key clients, ongoing contracts with the best in fashion and enduring editorial appeal the women who make up the list are among the top tier. Names like Arizona Muse, Liu Wen and Edita Vilkeviciute share space with legends like Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss, making this the most prestigious and diverse lineup to date.

Here is my Top 3
1. Edie Campbell
Edie is a real big star at the moment. She stars in Lanvin, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent and Burberry campaigns. Personally, I her 60's, unique look. She's like a girlfriend of a rockstar. Now, she has short hair, in my opinion it makes her grungier.
2. Catherine McNeil
Catherine, an Australian pearl . She's, definitely, one of my favourites. I love her personality, following her on instagram made me know a lot about herself. For the first time I noticed Cat in Carolina Herrera campaign for 212 VIP, she is staring there with Jon Kortajarena.
3. Sasha Pivovarova
Sasha, a Russian supermodel is BACK with 3 new Vogue covers and staring in Saint Laurent, Prada, Proenza Schouler and Juicy Couture campaigns. In 2011 Sasha gave birth to a baby girl.
