2. Kel Markey
Kel walked down an impressive 65 runways, opening at Hache, Rebecca Taylor and Moschino Cheap & Chic, and closing at Preen and Cividini.
While she was high up in the numbers, forum members thought she might do well to be more selective.
Psylocke wrote: “She shouldn't walk those second tier shows, unless she gets to open them (like Cividini, Rebecca Taylor). Walking lots of shows is good for exposure... but only if they're shows people actually pay attention to. No use in walking everything when they're not prestigious shows.
1. Tilda Lindstam
Tilda dominated the runways with an amazing 68 shows last season, but she somehow managed to blow that number out of the water with an unheard of 76 runway appearances. If there was a familiar face on the runways this season, it was hers. She opened Suno and Victoria Beckham, and closed at Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti and Tommy Hilfiger.
“Woah, once again!” Legolas remarked.
