Designer Clothes and Purses, Beautiful Looks – Experience the Top Female Fashion Models Retro..

It’s no doubt that female fashion modeling is the most unpredictable industry of the world.

So, take a glance at these retro female fashion models on top of the list to keep you inspired.

First Female Fashion Model on Top? Lara Stone

Lara Stone, most likely the best recognized female supermodel still. And, she’s a real Dutch lady.

Lara remains the leading face in our model arena.

The Lara Stone Story

When she was just 15, the 27-year-old was discovered. Then, she got happily involved in the Elite Model Look competition in 1999.

In spite of the truth that she did not win the show, she left a strong, outstanding impression to the executives. This was in part thanks to the gap in between her front teeth and her shaky runway walk.

She is ranked the world’s number-one female fashion model on the worldwide modeling website’s Top 50 Models Women and 10th on the site’s “top models” list.

Lara’s quote: “I’m happy people look at me as a role model.

Freja Beha Erichsen

Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen became one of the most popular names in the elite modelling industry. And she models high-profile projects for Chanel and Valentino.

The press refers to Erichsen as a bad girl with androgyny. And now, they attack her tattoos. Even though the hat in this image hides a few of Freja’s curls, I assure you she has magnificent hair!

Quote by Freja: “Don’t go overboard with too many accessories and too many different things.

Anja Rubik

Former OTM notable Polish Anja Rubik is known for her long blond locks for an edgier boy cut.

She posed for at least 59 magazine covers. And, Anja appeared on upwards of 43 designers’ runways.

This tall girl knows her way around the slippery catwalk as you can see in this full length picture.

Anja’s quote: “The best models in the industry are the ones who feel comfortable on the set. If she doesn’t feel comfortable, the images won’t be beautiful.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss

The lean and tall American lady in this image is the teasing face of Marc Jacobs Lola perfume and popular name for practically every major runway show.

So, Karlie’s blonde hair (sometimes), piercing eyes and pouting lips makes her a true icon in the modeling network. I’m sure we’ll continue to see her on the ramp and the magazine covers for some time to come.

Taking into consideration that the top model list is constantly changing, some of these young ladies will not stay for a long period of time. But, just to be included in this section means they really have what it takes!

Karlie’s quote: “Holy cow, in the course of one week I feel like I’ve lived about a year!

Now, how about you? Are you ready to start your own modeling career?

Do you have what it takes to become a model like Lara, Freja, or Karlie? Okay, maybe you do and maybe not.

Either way, it’s possible you can work in modeling right in or near your hometown. I believe in you. And, I want you to succeed – or at least, try.

That’s why I continue to work on this blog to give you the very best in career advice.

So, I’ve put together an email learning series for models – and a gift to start you on your way to modeling success…
