Celebrating the Beautiful

This past week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art held its annual Costume Institute Gala. This year's theme? A celebration of the world's true top models and their influence on designers. Marc Jacobs acted as honorary chair, along with Justin Timberlake, Anna Wintour, and of course, Kate Moss. Models from decades past -and present- were remembered and honored. From Linda Evangelista to Veruschka, Twiggy to Cindy Crawford, famous photos of the models, as well as video footage of the catwalk, and iconic dresses worn by the beauties acted as decoration.

While Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen were immortalized, I couldn't help but wonder who would be next on the list of the world's most beloved models. Coco Rocha and Daria Werbowy are among Canada's biggest models, but what about the slew of unknowns waiting to make it big? I did a little sleuthing and came up with four Canadian models who have landed impressive campaigns and walked for the world's top designers. Kate Moss, watch out.

1. Taryn Davidson
Known for her winning smile, the Ontario born walked on all the top runways this fall, including Celine and Versace. Among the many photo spreads she's down, Davidson worked with Terry Richardson for French Vogue's annual calendar this year.

2. Matt Gordon
This Albertan heartthrob is known for his height. With friends like Jessica Stam and Claudia Schiffer though, who needs anything else?

3. Tara Gill
Friend of Taryn Davidson, Tara is known for her dark eyes and bright smile. These obviously worked in her favor because she opened Vanessa Bruno's Paris show in the spring of 2008.

4. Simon Nessman
With his head of uncontrollable curls, Simon is a staple for all the biggest shows during fashion weeks. Currently, this BC boy is one of Givenchy's faces.
