How famous are models from your country in your country/what models are famous in your country?

Recommended Posts

I live in America and the only models that people know are like Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Cindy, Christie, some people know Petra and a few know Adriana but not by name. I'm just curious as to how famous Jeisa is in Brazil if someone can tell me. Obviously no one here knows who she is. No one even knows who like Gisele is. I mean I guess some people do but not any of my classmates.

pretty much if they are famous in hollywood people know about them from my experience.

pretty much everyone knows...cindy, tyra, naomi, kate, heidi...and to a lesser extent gisele, petra and adriana. Linda who is from canada people dont know her... same with Daria...unless they follow the fashion world but most people only know the hollywood names.

Oh cool. I have a friend from Australia and he knows Gemma aswell. I also have another one who's VERY into Miranda. so I guess they're pretty famous there. So do nonfashion people know Gemma? I heard she's on t.v. a lot.

Not many non-fashion people know about Gemma :/

She is rarely on tv :( She did an interview for "60 Minutes" not long ago, and she was in "Search for a Supermodel" that was aired 2002.

In France (Paris especially) the fashion industrie is big, so I think more models are known ? In New York it is different. Models on American ads looks different from French. Makeup, clothes - some ads are shared from country at country, but French is different. In France I think models are being more easy to recognise, because makeup is less concealing from the American. I know mes copains in Paris know that Louis Prades is and Gemma Ward and Jeremy Dufour, and everyone knows famous models like Moss and etc. Just for the very obscure model, in any countries, you have to be ineterested in that to know them.
