Every time Fashion Week rolls around, our forum members treat it like the Fashion Olympics. But instead of athletes, we have models. Thanks to the meticulous record-keeping of stereo_flo, the results are in for which models were cast in the most shows and walked down the most runways. Read on to see which models casting directors couldn't get enough of this season in New York.
15. Malaika Firth – New York Model Management
In New York, she was among the most in-demand models, walking in 17 shows including Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs.
