What's the difference between a model and a supermodel?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 27 Jan 2010

This is an interesting question.

To some it seems quite arbitrary and there is no hard and fast definition. Some models would describe themselves as a supermodel when really they are not.

The distinction is that there are tens of thousands of models around the world whilst there are very few supermodels.

So a supermodel is someone who has reached the top of their profession, and really hit the heights of the game, and have fame in their country as a model. So you would think of someone like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss in this category.

There are of course many borderline cases too where someone is well known but perhaps not at supermodel status.
