How the Legends list works:
Every so often a model comes along who stands the test of time and leaves a lasting impression on the industry as a whole. With storied careers that hit every high note and reputations for professionalism and excellence these women are the standard by which other models are judged. More often than not their career trajectories push them outside the world of fashion and into television, film, entrepreneurship and philanthropy, transforming them into household names and even corporate entities.

More than anything it is longevity and widespread recognition that puts the legends in their own league. Some of the criteria we evaluate for this list include the following:

– At least 15 years of high profile work with top magazines, photographers and brands.
– Media presence outside of the fashion industry and widespread name recognition.
– Work that is considered iconic in nature i.e.. campaigns, covers & television commercials.
– Must have had at least one long term contract with fashion or beauty brand.

La Bundchen is more than just a model, she’s a full-fledged business. With top tier campaigns and covers whenever she wants them and record setting series of contracts Gisele remains undoubtedly in demand. Add to this the beauty’s unofficial status as a national ambassador for Brazil, complete with appearances at the World Cup and photoshoots alongside futbol’s biggest stars and you begin to understand her status as a cultural icon. In the world of fashion the name Gisele denotes a professionalism, energy and attitude that is downright infectious – no wonder she was selected as the face of the classic Chanel No. 5 – an honor typically reserved for cinema stars.
