Favourite Female Models.

So, I couldn't pick just five and didn't have ten picks either...ergo a Top Eight! You don't see that very often, do you?

1. Sasha Pivovarova.

Pivovarova has had an admirable career thus far. She has been working consistently for years and still remains one of the most popular faces in an industry where the danger of being a fad is lubriciously high. The Russian model has worked since her scouting in 2005 and debuted only two weeks later as the opener of a Prada show. This d├ębut set the standard of her career. She has featured in Vogue UK, Paris, America, Japan, Italia, Korea, Russia and Portugal as well as various versions of Marie Claire and Elle and other publications such as V Magazine, W Magazine and Interview. She has walked for the likes of Chanel and Galliano and has fronted campaigns for Prada, H&M and Longchamp. Now a mother as well as a wife, Pivovarova seems to finding a way to make the work/home-life balance work.

2. Xiao Wen Ju.

From the Shanxi Province in China, this young model became hugely popular in her native country before becoming a favourite of designers such as Marc Jacobs. She has worked for huge names in the business such as Kenzo, Chanel, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Vanessa Bruno and Sonia Rykiel. While a highly successful runway model, she truly shines in print where the camera adores her highly unique and ridiculously cute face.

3. Charlotte Free.

...is all over the place at the moment through huge campaigns with high-street favourites such as Topshop and Forever 21. You can't of missed her. Known for her shock of pink hair (which she dyes herself) and part of the new wave of "alternative"-looking models, Miss Free has the personality required to become a household name rather than just another pretty face. 

4. Lara Stone.

The gap, the body, the sheer volume of work. It's all about Lara Stone at the moment. She's ranked number one and it's not hard to see why...A career largely made up of print work as disproportionately small feet make runway a stressful ordeal, Stone has worked for names like Calvin Klein, DKNY, Tom Ford and many others. Hey, Bardot, there's a new It-Girl doing you proud.

5. Dree Hemingway.

Another model who is all over the place at the moment, Hemingway is particularly cool because, yes, she is related to that Hemingway. She's his great granddaughter, in fact. She's a dreamy, watery-eyed kind of beauty but clearly has a dynamic personality as she gets booked to head some pretty impressive campaigns such as that of Ermanno Scervino for A/W 2012.

6. Cara Delevingne.

...is a current darling of the fashion world, not only as a model but as a style icon. She is photographed as regularly in her downtime as when modelling. She has appeared in magazines like Vogue Russia and American Vogue, has done campaign work for the likes of Burberry and has walked for brands such as Chanel.

7. Emily Baker.

She's from New Zealand, is ranked 37 in the world and has worked for Mochino, Dolce and Gabbana, Erdem and many more. She has appeared in industry-leading magazines such as Dazed and Confused and Harper's Bazaar. But she mostly appears on this list for this picture alone. So gorgeous.

8. Georgia May Jagger.

Famous parentage? Check. Career to die for? Check. Model height? Not so much. Or barely scraping by. But who cares when you've got roots like that...oh, and that face. Gaps are really in - dentists everywhere are probably weeping into cheap ready-meals.
