Top international models of 2011

December 27, 2011
There are models who enjoyed the year in spotlight but who made in the top list.

Still regarded as the highest earning and most powerful supermodel (she earned over $45 million last year) Gisele enjoyed cover appearances on 13 glossy covers this year. And the work keeps pouring in: Versace, Givenchy and Salvatore Ferragamo have all picked her to front their spring/summer 2012 campaigns.

Gisele Bundchen

Arguably the sexiest model of the year, Victoria’s Secret model Rosie started 2011 as Maxim’s ‘Hottest Woman of the Year’. Cover appearances on Vogue, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar sat nicely along the Devon-born model’s new Burberry Body perfume campaign. A role as the face of Marks & Spencer’s Autograph range also proved to be a patriotic move for the LA-based 24-year-old.

While that other Kate’s wedding was the subject of global fascination, those on Planet Fashion couldn’t wait to see what Miss Moss would wear down aisle. 2011 will always be the year that Kate Moss got married in THAT Galliano dress – oh and she still found time to pose for Paris Vogue, Rimmel, Fred, Longchamp, Vogue Eyewear and YSL perfume.

There was no escaping Arizona Muse’s bushy brows and heart-shaped face this year, be it from a billboard modelling for high street giant Next, or a Louis Vuitton ad campaign. The mother-of-one, who hails from New Mexico, has fast become the fashion editor’s model of choice, clocking up editorials in the American, Russian, Australian and French editions of Vogue.

One of the breakout new faces of the year, Dutch Daphne walked 48 runway shows for spring/summer 2012 alone. She has also covered V magazine and Love Magazine and was picked to star in the Versace for H&M campaign.

Ranked by as their top model, 2011 has proved to be another work-filled year for Dutch-born Stone, with over 12 glossy covers and campaigns for Calvin Klein, Tom Ford and Prada Perfume.

Lara Stone

After clocking up numerous editorials, ad campaigns and catwalk appearances, Kloss recently hit the big time: she was chosen to walk in the Victoria’s Secret show in November. Shortly after, the 19-year-old was photographed by Steven Miesel for Vogue Italia, in what is a soon-to-be-iconic editorial, proclaiming her the new ‘Body’.

Lindsey Wixson’s bee stung lips and full cheeks make her face unmistakeable. A catwalk favourite, she too starred in the Versace for H&M campaign, all while remaining a sweet, modest girl from Kansas, USA.

Another in-demand catwalk show girl, Chinese model Fei Fei Sun has continued to be a presence in the modelling world with covers for i-D, Vogue China and Elle China and a role in the Louis Vuitton autumn/winter 2011 campaign.

Cara Delevingne 19-year old Cara has come in to her own this year. Continuing her role as the face of Burberry, the bushy-browed Londoner took to the catwalk to open and close the Prorsum spring/summer 2012 show with gusto.

Polish-born Daga was the most in demand model during the spring/summer 2012 shows, racking up 67 appearances.

With editorials, glossy magazine covers galore and tonnes of catwalk appearances, Liu Wen easily earns a place as one of the top faces of 2011.
