Cindy used to be so gorgeous and that body... Wow.. Naomi, Gisele and Kate? No thanks.

This sexy chick is on top of the food chain on the top tens! As Quagmire say, "Giggity! "

A real beauty! Cindy Crawford is the best! She should also be Miss Universe!...

2 Gia Carangi

There will never be enough words said about her beauty. She really was one of the best models who ever lived, and she managed to attain that status in less than five years of working in the industry and despite having a, shall we say, dangerous way of living.

With all due respect to the Creator of this site Ms carangi should be at the top of your list... She set the standard for all the supermodels after her... The fashion industry's standard of what beauty and edginess is today...

I agree she should be at the top of this list she is a one of a kind unique beauty, she was the original the best and the trend setter for all models coming after her, she did everything with ease cause it all came naturally, so sad to of lost her so young I'm sure she would of been somewhere big in film if she had to still be with us, cause she wanted to do movies.

Cindy Crawford at the top of the list? Come on... It should be Gia, it was the resemblance with Gia what made her famous, all the photographers and the magazines wanted somebody like Gia, somebody natural, somebody who could open her soul to the camera and make people look inside of them, somebody who could turn into anybody in front of the camera, that was Gia.

3 Naomi Campbell Naomi Elaine Campbell is a British supermodel, actress, and singer. Recruited at the age of 15, she established herself amongst the top three most recognizable and in-demand models of the late 1980s.

I don't like Naomi Campbell at all and at least I'm being honest. But hopefully she gets to appear in more runaways often because she is more stunning than the newer models. Plus. I'm NOT a huge fan of the newer models and the Instagram models. Naomi Campbell is BEAUTIFUL.

Naomi Campbell is very pretty and I like how she made history, by becoming the first black woman to appear on the cover of French Vogue magazine. I also like how she was in Michael Jackson's music video "In the Closet". But I've would've liked her a lot more if she hasn't got an attitude problem.

First black female model on the cover of French Vogue, British Vogue, and Time Magazine. Chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the world. - Alexandr

Naomi Campbell is very beautiful. Even though I don't really like her because of her attitude, she should be number one. (Though she sounds like a man when she gets hostile).

4 Tyra Banks Tyra Lynne Banks is an American model, television personality, talk show host, producer, author, actress, singer and business woman.

she is owesome... juz let go what is going through herself even she had suffered from eating disorder b4(eat too much)... inspire other people... brave.. crazy in minded thinking but really gud.. strong enough.. and I love tyra now (out and inside)!

She's the best in the world! Her show "America's Next Top Model" just reached Cycle 18 and Tyra Banks Show is one of the best talk shows in the world. She's also more than a millionaire. Her black beauty is undefeated!

I watch America's Next Top Model ALL the time. And I just think she is the most beautiful person in the WHOLE UNIVERSE! I just wish I could be like her. She is the best!

Best supermodel so far in the history of modeling... She is fierce
She can do anything.. She is the best in the world...

Face, Attitude, and Body. She is what supermodels strive to be! When ever you opened a fashion mag in the 80's and 90's she was in. She was on every runway show there was!

Linda should be #1. No other could be such a chameleon like she was and still is to this day. Absolutely stunning like no other

One of the more controversial supermodels, primarily because of her unusually low weight during the early part of her career.
Although she is one of the world's top fashion models. - Alexandr

Ask anybody a name of a top model they would answer Kate Moss. Certainly one of the most controversial and famous model ever. And that face, she is so magnetic and mysterious!

Kate Moss for me is the Best... Nobody even compares to her.. Her zero figure was such a rage and can ever create the rage again

My favorite model! She is incredible!

10 Helena Christensen

One of the world's top fashion models. - Alexandr

She was in Batman & Robin. - BeatlesFan1964


13 Suzy Parker
14 Twiggy

I am old enough to know that Twiggy was the world's first supermodel. She was the first to become a household name and only 5'6! Twiggy and Cheryl Tiegs,who was 5 inches taller than Twiggy,were and are the original supermodels. They started it all. The magazine covers,cosmetic contracts,ads and you know when you have become a supermodel when you become a household name.

Indeed. Twiggy will always be the world's first supermodel. And the fact that she was short,way shorter than the required height makes it even more celebrated. Twiggy broke the mold for shorter models like Kate Moss and Devon Aoki. Twiggy was the first to become famous and a household name around the world.
She was unique,innovative and totally original. Kudos to Twiggy!

15 Christy Turlington

On of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People.

She rocked when the blondes ruled and brought beauty with appealing character in vogue. She knows her face and body and uses her fame for intelligent and consistently great causes. One supermodel who remained natural and real proving beauty comes from within- though of course she is flawlessly beautiful as well on the outside. Good luck and God bless, Marti.

Damn, she looks sexy in her panties when I was browsing Google looking up on Christy! :D

Yep, she's does look sexy in those panties from the Calvin Klein's company! I might just wanna make out with her right now!

16 Paulina Porizkova

She is beautiful. Great eyes. Great features. Perfect symmetry and bone structure. She is striking. Any fool could see that.

Dear master porizkova. Your alien eyes have turned me into a square faced alien like you. You are not from earth and you and I will alienate the world

She has hypnotized me into being her slave. All hail master porizkova you have seduced me.

Master we meet again. My face is now square like yours

17 Eva Herzigova

I could've s worn this was Nicole Kidman when I first looked at her. Great beauty and great similarity! I think Nicole modelled for a little while but preferred acting.

One of the world's top fashion models.
Was ranked #15 in Channel 5's "World's greatest supermodel". - Alexandr

She looks like Nicole Kidman in this photo.

18 Christie Brinkley

The most popular model of all time!

Laetitia made her feature film debut in Asterix & Obelix vs. Caesar(1999), the most expensive French film ever made and a smash hit in Europe.
Laetitia is good actress too.
- Alexandr

The word glamour itself is French, so it's entirely appropriate that the most legendary model should be French herself. - laotahn

21 Cara Delevingne

Her statement with the eyebrows... amazing

She shows the human-ly side of models wherein they aren't all just strict this and proper that. They're just ladies.

22 Brooke Shields Brooke Christa Shields is an American actress, model and former child star. Initially a child model, she gained critical acclaim at age 12 for her leading role in Louis Malle's controversial film Pretty Baby, in which she played a child prostitute in New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century.

90's kids are extremely lucky to have rolemodels like her...
Nowdays It's all those Fake kardashians

Yet one of the few brunette supermodels of the late 70's/early 80's. An icon and one of Scavullo's favorites. She was the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of Vogue (14 years old), had a fashion doll named after her and became a household name.

23 Jean Shrimpton

The best face ever, never tire of looking at her photos. I have been fascinated by her for 50 years. I gave my daughter her middle name of Jean in her honor. She will always be the most beautiful model ever to me. I love the photos of her as an "old woman", she certainly aged better than I. I wish her happiness.

I think that is was and still is beautiful she has the most stunning eyes and mouth and she made everything she wore look twice as good as any other model and she never compromised her morals by posing half nude. she didn't need to do that, she had class and probably still does

Yes, Jean, the most beautiful, weather hippie or lady like she always looked amazing.

In my opinion, the #1 top model of all time. She has no equal.

28 Milla Jovovich Milica Bogdanovna Jovovich, known professionally as Milla Jovovich, is an American actress, model and musician.
29 Cheryl Tiegs

I have been around long enough to know that Cheryl Tiegs is indeed the first American supermodel. Her face was everywhere in the 70's and early 80's. Magazine covers,cosmetic contracts,posters,her own clothing line. She was the first and paved the way for others.

Cheryl should be number one. She is the first supermodel in America and the first household name.

No Question, Top of the Hill!

A legend.

30 Candice Swanepoel Candice Susan Swanepoel is a South African supermodel, best known for her work with Victoria's Secret.

She is the best model in the world right now. Look out Gis because here come Candice looking fierce and beautiful. I absolutely love her!

The girls career sky rocketed in a year despite people hating on her legitamacy

35 Veruschka

Before Cindy, Naomi, Gia, Linda and any of those other wonderful models were even born, there was VERUSHUKA.

She is one of a kind even among her contemporaries like Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, etc. Verushuka approached each job like an artist and didn't just model and look beautiful, but became the image of beauty to fit every photo.

She is alive and creating to this day and is an inspiration for all the models of today. That's why she should be number one. Not because she is hot, or looks cute in her panties, or had a lot of P.R. people working hard to give her popularity in the media. But because she set the standard of what a model is. Going beyond just being a pretty face. Many of you have never heard of her and do not know the history of the modeling world, so please go to Google Images and write the name VERUSHUKA and look and see what a true Super model is all about.

She started it all! Verushuka is number one!

Absolutely eye catching beauty.

Most beautiful woman ever!

39 Natalia Vodianova

She is beautiful in and out.She is iconic for me and I truly appreciate her work and philanthropy

40 Dovima

Dovima was one of the most Iconic Models who ever lived, none of these models would be where they were if not for Models of the 1950's. Just insane or obviously not well informed. I mean she was Avedons muse! And where is Carmen dell'Orefice in all this.

41 Janice Dickinson

Even if you do not agree with her being the "first-supermodel in the world" you have to understand what she means by it---she was the one that first started the increase of fees paid to supermodels. Aside from that if you see her pictures throughout her career she was so utterly gorgeous. She had to make herself noticed and accepted in a blonde-dominated industry paving the way for other beautiful girls like Gia & Cindy.

Say what you want,there is no denying that,along with Gia Carangi,Janice helped bring brunettes back into the forefront of modeling.
