The word “model” was never quite big enough to hold the leggy ladies of the runway. Even when we added “super” in front, it didn’t quite encompass the powerhouse abilities of the catwalkers. So today, in order to be considered one of the hottest models in the game, you’ve got to have more going on for you than just number 2 dress size. The hottest models to us have a mean walk on the runway and an intriguing personality off. They are making their own opportunities, when they aren’t being courted for some of the biggest gigs in the industry. And they are loved by the pubs, paps, people like us, and fellow models in fashion. From “It” faces who are well on their way to reaching icon status, to veterans who’ve shown us that they still got it and everyone still wants to see it.
