We're crazy in love with these new faces
By Joseph Tenni

Ekat Kiseleva
After Ekat Kiseleva traded in her basketball shoes for stiletto heels, the Siberian sensation walked for Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Jil Sander, Gucci and Costume National. The teamplaying tomboy has also posed for Dazed & Confused, Russian Vogue with Ellen von Unwerth and just wrapped a W shoot with Craig McDean. Now that's a slam dunk!

Sosheba Griffiths
Hailing from Jamaica, Sosheba Griffiths was discovered at her high school by a local scout, after which the teetering Taurean won the "Face of the Caribbean” contest and was immediately whisked to New York, where she shot Teen Vogue and Nylon. She says she wants to go into nursing after modeling, as if her phone-throwing, floor-mopping idol Naomi Campbell would ever step foot in a place of healing.

Irina Kulikova
Recherché Russian Irina Kulikova was discovered in a Moscow restaurant by IMG head honcho, Ivan Bart, and Liv Tyler. Yes, Liv the actress. Irina has gone on to open the shows for Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and Nina Ricci, ensuring a permanent place for her at the modeling table.

Cicely Telman
Captivating carrottop Cicely Telman turns heads wherever she goes, including the Marc Jacobs, Hermès, Undercover and Jean Paul Gaultier runways. She's also graced the cover of Elle in her native Netherlands, where she was scouted just walking down the street. Simply redhead!

Carolina Pantoliano
One of the busiest and buzziest girls of the season is Brazilian Carolina Pantoliano, discovered by a Supreme agent over the Christmas holidays and brought to New York the day before show castings began. She walked for Proenza Schouler, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Christopher Kane, and ended up having three looks at Prada—just the beginning for the bewitching brunette.

Alexandra Sandor
From the fabled hills of Romania, home to former Model Mania star Diana Dondoe, comes teen wonder Alexandra Sandor. After appearances in D and Italian Vogue, the banged beauty also walked for Yves Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Lacoste and DKNY, putting the vamp in vampire.

Milana Keller
With a fall runway resume that reads Valentino, Miu Miu, Versace, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Rochas and Kenzo, Milana Keller's star continues to rise. The vivacious Virgo, after gracing the pages of multiple editions of Vogue, is also the star of the new Gucci campaign. Everyone's rushin' for this Russian!
