Model showlists/rankings for SS08
14. Anabela Belikova
total shows: 59 (opened 6)
The babyfaced Anabela got her big break making her debut last season at the Prada show and look where’s she now. I remember her as the young ad campaign queen for fronting Nina Ricci and BALENCIAGA.
13. Sheila Marquez
total shows: 60 (opened 0)
Other than Marina Perez, it’s really rare to see a spanish catwalk model on the runways. But with shows like Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, this one looks promising.
12. Diana Moldovan
total shows: 61 (opened 1)
Diana topped last season’s rankings with 79 shows (!) but even if there’s a slight drop, she still boasts a whopping 61. Not bad for a girl on her second season.
11. Magdalena Frackowiak
total shows: 62 (opened 5)
I really admire the angular talent of her face… it’s like… a square. This season, she closed a lot of shows namely Viktor&Rolf, Balenciaga and more.
9. Flavia de Oliveria
total shows: 64 (opened 2)
This Brazilian belle who broke into the scene by opening Yves Saint Laurent’s SS06 show is still in-demand on the runways.
Check out her fashion week diary, I caught her eating fast food between shows! How rare.
6. Irina Kulikova
total shows: 67 (opened 4)
She rocked her first couture shows and this darling newbie is taking a stand as one of the most sought-after models around. You will be seeing a lot more of her!
5. Alana Zimmer
total shows: 69 (opened 2)
This canadian hottie is marching through her third season, and still doing good, but she is super underrated in the editorial scene.
I read an interview of her and noted that during last show season, a pin from a hastily altered outfit ran up her leg while she’s on the runway, she bleeded badly but still finished the catwalk. How professional is that.
2. Olga Sherer
total shows: 73 (opened 7)
Remember how I gushed about her being my model eyecandy? Rock on Olga!

If you’re wondering where is Stam, Lily’D or Natasha, they each did 55 shows. You’d be surprised to know that even Agyness’s only got 37, considering the fact that we saw her almost everywhere during the fashion month.
