Models.com updated their model rankings today. These lists have no impact in the success of a model, I’m certain, but we’re always curious to see what level of slayage our queens have risen to. Shall we discuss the shifts in ranks? Shall we?
Our love, Joan Smalls, stays strong on the top of the list. Do I agree? No. Does she deserve it? Maybe. I am Joan’s biggest fan, but where she lacks is campaigns. I’m sure Hugo Boss and Estée Lauder both pay her by the ass-load, but is this a number one queen make?
What surprises me is the drop to #9 for Karlie Kloss. She may lack in editorials outside of Vogue, but love my bb Karlie or loathe her health- conscious, kookie-loving ass (see what I did there?), you can’t deny her presence in the industry. She has a set of wings and she should be flying a bit higher.
There are some blips here and there mixed in, clearly a majority of the list is paid for by agencies to make their ladies look good, but can we take a moment to the ‘supers’? Bye-bye, Heidi. It’s about time. She has the recognition as a supermodel without the pedigree of a supermodel. How many runways has she walked on without wings? My point exactly.
Oh! did I mention my encounter with Queen Joan Smalls? She was absolutely gorgeous this day in leather and sheer fabric with red lips, while I, a shaky wee-lad, was dressed in Zara. She was polite and told me it was a pleasure meeting me after asking for my name.
Complete adoration for Miss Smalls. Joan and Me. Sounds like a made for Lifetime television movie event.
P.S. Sorry for the slouchy look. A blogger isn’t always their best when around the gods.
While the photographs are certainly and obviously done by Mert & Marcus, who seem to be doing every editorial, the sexy atmosphere is infinitely better than what has been going on the past few season. Also, heads aren’t tilted back and the styling is much more tolerable than the runway. I feel like I’m on a roll here with the compliments. Let’s see. Abbey doesn’t look as emaciated and of the walking dead that she has been looking lately. Definitely a plus. Keep that up, but unfortunately over-processed photographs don’t translate into real life. Really, just eat a sandwich. It will all be better, child. One more thing: More Joan, please.
