Now that the Spring 2018 collections have officially come to an end, it’s time to look back at the shows and models that ruled Fashion Month. Instagram unveiled its seasonal report to recap the most buzzed-about highlights from the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Tripling the engagement from last season’s Fall 2017 shows, this season racked up a total of 709 million likes, comments, stories, and posts from a whopping 143 million Instagram users.
Taking a look at the models who ruled the catwalk, Instagram rounded up the 10 who gained the highest percentage of followers during the month from New York to Paris. Topping the list was transgender model Teddy Quinlivan, who walked countless runways including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and more. Also rounding out the top five were Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen, two of the ’90s supers who walked the Versace show, and Kaia Gerber—the 16-year-old runway breakout of the season (and daughter of Cindy Crawford).
Today I walked for Marc Jacobs, but I also walked for Venus Extravaganza, Mesha Caldwell, Jo Jo Striker, Jaquarrius Holland, and countless other trans women who’s lives were cut short due to senseless violence and lack of understanding. I love all my Transgender brothers and sisters and I will do whatever it takes to make a difference. Know that you are not alone, know that I’m here fighting for our community; fighting for our liberation.
