The Hot List
How The Hot List works
The Hot List is a curated lineup of the most in-demand newcomers in the business. These are the girls who conquered the runways, snagged spots in the very best campaigns and lookbooks and made editorial waves in top tier magazines - all within a season or two. Consider this the scoreboard for fashion rookies and foreshadowing for the Top 50. These young ladies are the future, the next generation, the first round draft picks of the modeling industry. Before you can make it to the big leagues of the Top 50, you prove your stuff here.
