Sasha’s still the star of the Prada, Miu Miu shows… I’m keeping my fingers cross that she’ll be the only-girl in the upcoming Prada campaign.

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.

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.

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.

10. Suvi Koponen
total shows: 63 (opened 8 )
She was really popular in New York and Milan. I still find her walk a bit stiff.

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.

total shows: 66 (opened 1)
After much criticism of her being too skinny, she put on little more weight and the result is: more shows!

7. Iekeline Stange
total shows: 66 (opened 7)
The strangely-chic Iekeline is said to be one of the most unique-looking models around. Guess her appeal still works.

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.

It’s really interesting to know that she opened only 1 minor show out of the 72 she walked!

total shows: 73 (opened 7)
I still can’t believe that she’s only 16 and her rare eerie beauty is what most designers are going after. A supermodel in the making.

1. Kasia Struss
total shows: 75 (opened 10)
I’d say her top fashion week moment is opening the Balenciaga show. She is such a covet!

Trivias:
Asian model who did the most shows– Han (50 shows, beat Hye Park by 2)
Black model who did the most shows– Chanel Iman (58 shows )
Best newcomer– Siri Tollerold (59 shows )
Model who did the most shows in Paris– Siri Tollerold ( 28 shows)
Model who did the most shows in Milan– Kasia Struss (23 shows)
Model who did the most shows in London– Rachel Clark (19 shows)
Model who did the most shows in New York– Han (30 shows)
Model who got a big ‘welcome back’– Mariacarla Boscono (opened 7 shows)
Model who almost got onto the list– Siri Tollerold (59 shows, opened 4)

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.

    I’m glad to hear that Han did the most show in NYC this season. She also had the most show in NYC last season.

    I’m curious as to how much a runway model makes per show? I read that some shows pay with clothes (ie. no budget for models) so the numbers may be all over the place.

    I assume the big names like Prada, Chanel, Dior, Armani, Versace, D&G, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan pay the highest while smaller labels pay less.
