Now that all the runways have been walked, it’s time to break down the Spring 2019 season. At least when it comes to model mileage. We were kind of surprised that only three models on our top models of New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 countdown made the month’s final tally (Yoon Young Bae, Adut Akech, Sora Choi). But we were happy with the fact that half of the season’s top 10 were women of color — though no plus-size, over 50 or transgender models made the list. And wait until you see who turned out to be number one.

Now that we’ve piqued your curiosity, check out the slideshow to see which models scored the top spots.
