Aya Jones @ Prada

Aya Jones

One of the buzziest new faces to emerge from the spring collections is French-Ivorian Aya Jones N'Guessan. In her first modeling gig, the nubile newbie walked exclusively for Prada in Milan at the spring shows a couple of weeks ago, whereupon casting directors tripped over themselves to book her for the following shows in her hometown of Paris. Ultimately she chose to walk only a few, but they were some of the best: Miu Miu (of course), Valentino, Maison Martin Margiela, Sonia Rykiel, Viktor & Rolf, and Giambattista Valli, among others.

Aya has been compared to ebony goddesses Naomi Campbell, Noémie Lenoir, and Marihenny Rivera. There'll be plenty of opportunities to mull it over since it's very likely that, for the spring 2015 editorial and campaign season, Aya will be everywhere.

Lexi Boling, Prada

Lexi Boling

Putting the chic in Chicago, Lexi Boling was signed on her second visit to Ford Models in the Windy City (they told her to come back when she got her braces off). It's been a whirlwind ever since for Lexi, most known for her legs that don't end and her intense gaze that some have likened to a 'death stare.' At the spring collections, she walked 23 shows in New York alone and too many to count in London, Milan, and Paris, where she clocked appearances at Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Céline, Givenchy, and Loewe. We also noticed that, death stare notwithstanding, she's one of the liveliest girls backstage, hamming it up at every turn. Magazine editorials have been pouring in, too — everything from Italian Vogue to Numéro. Everyone's watching sexy Lexi.
