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

Fernanda Reis
Brazilian babe Fernanda Reis went from strolling down the street, where she was spotted by a model scout, to walking the runways of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Max Azria and Vera Wang, making for an impressive premier show season. Now that’s curb appeal.

Julia Valimaki
Finnish femme Julia Valimaki has come in from the cold, appearing in French, Tank and Jalouse. The Scorpio sensation is also illuminating cosmetic displays as the face of Clarins skincare—and she's just warming up.

Carina Pichler
Scoring quite a deal, Austrian hottie Carina Pichler was discovered at Topshop in London. Since then, the lithe Libran has shot for Dazed & Confused, Wonderland, British Elle, American Vogue and can be seen next month in 10. But this isn't your typical fresh face. The avid skier and rock climber is also an architecture major who can speak four languages. Wunderbar!

Rachel Clark
Florida's new poster girl (and confessed eBay junkie) is Rachel Clark. When she's not on the web, the statuesque stunner can be found opening the Proenza Schouler collection and walking for Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Marni, Louis Vuitton (she also appears in their look book), Dries Van Noten and Anna Molinari. Look for the Aquarian in next month's Harpers’s Bazaar, shot by Solve Sundsbo.

Johanna Jonsson
Proactive is definitely attractive. After submitting photos to a local agency, the Swedish teen Johanna Jonsson walked for Calvin Klein, Prada, Iceberg, Costume National, Kenzo, John Galliano, Dior and Chanel. The perfectly proportioned Piscean can also be seen in the current Jil Sander campaign—in all her icy glory.

Kaitlyn Vanderkooi
Fresh off the Canadian pipeline comes classic beauty Kaitlyn Vanderkooi (after accompanying a friend to a model search recently, but receiving most of the attention). The native of Langley, British Columbia, has appeared in American and British editions of Glamour, as well as campaigns for Foxy Jeans and Kenzie Girl. Those are the first of many spikes from the high school volleyball player.

Denisa Dvorakova
Czech champ Denisa Dvorakova is on a winning streak. First came the top prize in Elite’s Model Look contest, then shoots for Numero, Dazed & Confused, W and Italian Vogue. She also appears in campaigns for See by Chloe and Exte. It's a win-win situation for all.
