London: Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer may be well known, but their names do not figure anywhere on the list of the world’s top five most in-demand models by industry standards.
The list features rather less familiar names like Anja Rubik, 26, Freja Beha Erichsen, 23, Lara Stone, 27, Abbey Lee Kershaw, 24, and Constance Jablonski, 20, the Daily Mail reported.
The five alone have collectively appeared on 265 magazine covers, walked 232 catwalk shows and have 115,000 Twitter followers.
A survey by Fashion Spot showed, Polish model Rubik was the most in-demand girl between April 2010 and April this year, and she has posed on an impressive 59 magazine covers, and appeared on 43 designers’ runways.
But that is a small workload compared to Constance Jablonski, 20, who walked for an impressive 83 designers in the past year alone. That is in addition to appearing on 46 magazine covers.
Lara Stone, the Dutch-born model wife of comedian David Walliams, ranked third in the list, but due to her contract with Calvin Klein, her appearances have been fewer than her peers, with only two runway shows and 47 magazine covers.
Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen is one of the industry’s most popular names, having landed high-profile campaigns for Chanel and Valentino. In addition to appearing on 65 different covers and in 51 shows, she also starred in a short film by Karl Lagerfeld.
Melbourne-born Abbey Lee Kershaw rounds out the top five. She has also modelled for Chanel, as well as Tom Ford, and has been hailed Australia’s biggest model export since Elle Macpherson.
