Pulse supermodel Jeneil Williams made a stunning return to this season's fashion collections under an exclusive engagement for Louis Vuitton.

This single appearance was enough to reconfirm her status as one of the top superstars of the industry. So much so that she is currently in the top three best walkers in Paris of a group of 12 of the world's super girls.

Vogue Magazine opened a voting platform to allow top industry figures and fashionistas around the world who follow the collections to choose the best. Williams currently stands third in a list consisting of Kendall Jenner, Anja Rubik, Mayowa Nicholas, Ondria Hardin, Sasha Luss, Hyun Ji Shin, Irina Shayk, Antonina Petkovic Liya Kebede, Joan Smalls and Arizona Muse.

These girls walked for some of Paris' major designers including Balmain, Chanel, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Loewe, Mui Mui, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney and Valentino

Williams is a very close third at 15 per cent behind arguably the world's top supermodel of the moment Kendall Jenner with 19 per cent, and Joan Smalls at 16 per cent. To be in this rarefied company is an honour to which Williams has become accustomed to given her status in global modelling.

At the end of last year, not only was she honoured with a special front page feature on, but she was also hailed by Vogue as one of the five Jamaican models who changed the face of fashion. Among her many accomplishments was her selection for the iconic all black issue of Italian Vogue as well as magazine covers for Love, multiple editions of Vogue, ID, the Wall Street Journal, French BMM and several other magazines.

The former Vere Technical High School athlete and Jamaican flag bearer whose versatility has caught the attention of several of the world's media, is a fixture on Nike's top league advertising for active wear. She has been featured in a number of magazines and The London Telegraph for not only her modelling prowess but also her other interests including fitness and healthy cooking.

Williams was discovered in Pulse Caribbean Model Search, and continues the rich tradition of the Caribbean's finest modelling talent including Lois Samuels, Nell Robinson, Angela Neil, Kimberley Mais, Nikki Vassell, Lincoln Winter, Oraine Barrett along with scores of other Pulse stars.

Williams continue to inspire the new wave of Pulse stars such as Francine James and Alicia Burke who made her own strong impact at the Mui Mui collection in Paris.
