September is fashion month and we’re just on the cusp of being bombarded with about a million looks for Spring 2015. But before we get a peek at all the pieces we’ll be coveting — but not able to buy — for the next six months, let’s take a look at this season’s clothes. The Fall 2014 campaigns are in and we’ll be seeing them in just about every magazine for the next few months.
We scoured through 283 campaigns this season to see which faces we would be seeing the most and which models were the most in-demand. We left out beauty and fragrance and just focused on fashion, tallying up how many times each girl appeared in a major ad campaign.
Below are the top seven, most frequently featured models this season. Many are girls we usually expect to perform, but there are a few surprises. Unsurprising, however, is the lack of diversity among these seven, which certainly speaks to improvements that still need to be made in the industry. The models predominantly hail from European countries (Estonia, the U.K., Romania, Poland) and the rest from Australia and Brazil. Let’s hope this is a trend that doesn’t continue on the runways; we’d love to see a bit more diversity.
See which girls made the cut for the most appearances.
