Okay, we promise this is our last 2011 round-up (it is, after all, 2012). We’ve already sifted through the best red carpet looks of last year, its most controversial advertisements, the best and worst dressed and the most annoying… now we must celebrate all of its best fashion models. This year saw Karlie Kloss shoot for the title of supermodel, Crystal Renn land her first (and much-deserved) Vogue cover, the startling debut of Saskia de Brauw, the rise of Arizona Muse, the continuing reign of Freja Beha Erichsen and the all-out domination of Andrej Pejic. Check out these and more of the year’s top models, then tell us your favorite below.
(Ed. Note: honorable mentions include Lara Stone, Liu Wen, Raquel Zimmermann, Candice Swanepoel, Kasia Struss and newcomer Kati Nescher)
