All week long, we’ve been keeping track of which models opened and closed the big shows. Now, using our patented secret formula — a complex algorithm that awards points based on the number and importance of shows each model walked in — we can reveal who made the biggest splash this week.

1. Irina Kulikova. The Russian was in every big show this week. She racked up over twenty in total, opening Marc by Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Peter Som, and Donna Karan.

2. Agyness Deyn. Popped up at many of the most buzzworthy shows: Opened and closed punky Anna Sui, closed Oscar and Narciso, and opened Temperley too.

3. Catherine McNeil. A very balanced scorecard, with a balance of old-school glamour (Carolina Herrera), new-school beauty (Zac Posen) and rising stars (Preen and Thakoon).

4. Suvi Koponen. Opened and closed Max Azria and closed Carolina Herrera. Also strutted in Proenza Schouler, Michael Kors, Philosophy, and more.

5. Chanel Iman. Hit her stride late in the week, and ended up with the most eclectic range. Before opening and closing Custo Barcelona, she also walked in flashy Heatherette, celeb labels L.A.M.B. and JustSweet, and fashion favorites Vera and Alexander Wang.

6. Raquel Zimmermann. Brazilian veteran won opening spots at Proenza and Rodarte, and pounded the catwalk for all the big names: Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Carolina Herrera.

7. Toni. We don’t even know her last name! But opening and closing Calvin Klein was a refreshing surprise to the fashion world.

8. Kasia Struss. Dominated the smaller shows, bookmarking TSE and Malo and opening Phi, Jill Stuart, and Philosophy. Her biggest moment: closing Vera Wang.

9. Flavia de Oliveira. Reigned at the younger brands, scoring the opening spot at Trovata and JustSweet, and closing Chaiken, Badgley Mischka, and Monique Lhuillier.

10. Serafima Vakulenko. This relative newcomer had a strong showing, opening Yigal Azrouel and Adam Lippes. Plus, she walked in Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
