Top 15 Models of 2013

My list of the best models of 2013!

15. Sasha Luss
Sasha Luss' modeling career went really took off  after she dyed her hair platinum blond (it's gorgeoussss!) since then walked 53 spring 2014 shows! I'm sure 2014 is going to be a great for Sasha!

14. Josephine Skriver

This year she also got to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time! Like her bestfriend and now roomie Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Josephine recently walked Chanel's Metiers d'Art 2013 show in Dallas and ended the year with walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time!
I'm pretty sure we'll see more of Josephine in 2014, looking forward to it!

13. Caroline Brasch Nielsen
Danish model Caroline Brasch Nielsen was the talk of town back in September because of her runway jobs and ofcourse killer streetstyle! She recently walked Chanel's Metiers d'Art 2013 show in Dallas and ended the year with walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time!
I can't wait to see more of CBN in 2014!

12. Kate Upton
She got a Vogue US cover! There hasn't been a model on the cover since September 2011 (Kate Moss)!
That says enough right?!

11. Anja Rubik
Anja Rubik, one of my favorite streetstyle models!
She ranked no. 5 in's Industry Icons list, designed a capsule collection for Giuseppe Zanotti this year. Has had five Vogue covers this year and is now featured on Vogue Korea's January Cover 2014. Oh and besides that she is also the editor-in-chief of her own magazine, 25.

10. Gisele Bündchen
Again Gisele Bündchen was named number 1 Highest-Paid Model by Forbes this year!  Yesterday it was announced that she is now the ambassador of Pantone. She keeps proving that a modelling carreer doesn't need to end when you're in your late-20s . Btw, the Chanel campaign was amazing! 

9. Kate Moss
Just like Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss, is proving that a modelling career doesn't need to end after you're in your late-20s. This year she did countless campaigns editorials and campaigns. She was the face of Eleven Paris and was on the cover of Playboy's 60th Anniversary issue! She received Icon status!

8. Candice Swanepoel
Candice Swanepoel really prove this year she's worth having the 'Supermodel Status'. Candice did numerous covers, editorials and campaigns proving she also high-fashion worthy. Oh and she was also given the honor to wear the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra of 2013, The Royal Bra, worth 10 million dollars! 

7. Jourdan Dunn
When not walking in shows for great fashion houses, she's appearing in 3 music-videos, doing countless editorials and campaigns and ofcourse speaking speaking her min out about the racism in fashion. Supermodel Jourdan Dunn recently also got called ''Fashion's Tupac'' by GQ Magazine, ''People think that I'm against Fashion- or that I'm ghetto or a loudmouth. I'm not. But if speaking my opinion makes me that girl, fine. I'll take that crown.'' AMEN.
The year ended well for her, Beyoncé's surprise album came out recently and Jourdan is in two of videos, Yoncé with fellow models Joan Smalls and Chanel Iman and in XO with fellow model Jessica White and she walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013!

6. Cara Delevingne 
This face is everywhere! 2013 Was quite the year for Cara, not only has she walked tons of show and was featured on allot of covers, she also gained three tattoos this year! Oh and fun fact; Cara is the Most Reblogged Model of 2013! And with her 1.3 million (!) followers on twitter and her 3.6 million (!!!) followers on Instagram, you could say without a doubt that Cara is a real Social-Media Titan!

5. Liu Wen
One of China's biggest international fashionstars is now one off the first Asian models to be featured on Forbes' Highest-Paid Model List! And also the first to walk on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and first Asian spokeswoman for Estée Lauder! Like Joan she was also dubbed one of ''The New Icons'' by H&M!

4. Karlie Kloss
Even though Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes had the most Vogue covers this year, Karlie Kloss is actually the only model with 7 covers, which of none are reprints nor shared covers. Early Karlie has earned the official Victoria's Secret wings, becoming the latest Angel for the lingerie brand. Besides that she also collaborated with the British denim brand, Frame Denim to create a capsule collection exclusively for the long-legged ladies. Karlie herself has 1.2m legs and obviously had a hard time finding pants in her size, hence why she created it exclusively for the long-legged ladies, the range is called, Forever Karlie.

3. Joan Smalls
Puerto Rican supermodel, Joan Smalls has been ranking no. 1 model in's top 50 models list since September 2012 and I believe she still earns that spot. 2013 has been a great year for Joan, with having done campaigns for  brands from H&M to Estée Lauder and  having walked shows for major houses such as Balmain, Chanel and Givenchy, she earned her spot on number 3. She was also dubbed one of ''The New Icons'' by H&M! Did I forget to mention she was also in Beyoncé's new videoclip; Yoncé with fellow models Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman!!

2. Malaika Firth
After Malaika Firth landed a Prada campaign, being the first black model to do so since Naomi Campbell in 1994 (!), she became one of those models to look out for. She walked in every major runway show and she topped the year off by walking in the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time!

1. Doutzen Kroes
With having 8 Vogue covers in 2013, which of 4 were September issue covers, Doutzen also had the privilege to work with the top notch of the photographers in the industry, such as Inez&Vinoodh, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel and more. She has done campaigns for Miu Miu, H&M, Emilio Pucci and more! Also, Doutzen was featured in 9 different editions of Vogue and 3 times in the French edition of Elle! And she is now on the cover of the Januari issue of Dutch Elle with 54 pages of Doutzen inside.
So there is no doubt about it, Doutzen Kroes earned the spot.

Who do you think should be number one?

Honorable Mentions:  Saskia de Brauw, Daphne Groeneveld, Irina Shayk, Edie Campbell, Naomi Campbell, Sara Sampaio, Grace Mahary, Chanel Iman, Jasmine Tookes and Anaïs Mali.
