The Top 5 Most Popular Runway Models of Spring/Summer '15


While fashion month seems like a grueling four weeks for editors and buyers, it's perhaps most exhausting for the models. On top of all the travel, these hard-working ladies also face early call times and late-night fittings -- making sleep but a distant memory for most. Needless to say, it takes a special breed of model to walk dozens of shows per year, but the ones who can pull off the impressive feat hold a special place in the business for seasons to come.

So, who was this year's top catwalker? Following the end of Paris Fashion Week, we tasked ourselves (with a little help from to narrow down the top models of the season-- a list that is based on the sheer number of shows the model walked from start to finish.
