This chat board is for comments on models, mag features, events, and all model-related stuff

Brazilian mag Istoe Gente (similar to People) has the "Top 10" Brazilian mods on the cover page of issue 307 - in the US, mainstream mags ignore models and the public seems to "only be interested in celebs" - which is to be expected with the war that A Wintour and her cronies, with the help of many spineless model agents, have waged against proper fashion models during the past decade.

The names are 90% correct - I would probably put Talytha or Jeisa in Carol Trentini's place

Gisele (uber alles)
1º- Adriana Lima
2º- Isabeli Fontana
3º- Ana Beatriz Barros
4º- Fernanda Tavares
5º- Alessandra Ambrósio
6º- Letícia Birkheuer
7º- Fernanda Motta
8º- Raquel Zimmermann
9º- Michelle Alves
10º- Carol Trentini

Well - Raica was discovered in late 1999, she certainly follows Jeisa, who was a big star in 1999-2000, Elite mismanaged her career until recently, so I'll give her No 11 !!!!!

What about Caroline Ribeiro? She has (had) a multi-million dollar Revlon contract, was a Gucci girl for a few seasons, an overall kick ass model... but she didn't make it on this list?

If you look at the article, they base the rankings mainly on income (and I don't agree with the ranking order btw)

Carol came back after childbirth, but she doesn't seem to be doing either major fashion campaigns or big money "commercial" jobs...

One question mark is Lu Curtis - she is still quite active and I saw her in L'Oreal recently...

also - mods like Ana Claudia and Mariana Weickert are not included probably coz they are semi-retired...
