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

Daul Kim
The latest Asian dish on the model menu is quirky Korean Daul Kim, following in the footsteps of Han Jin and Hye Park. The Seoul-ful sensation has graced the pages of Vogue and i-D, but you can have a taste right now on her blog, which reveals a love of painting, Boy George, neo-neo romanticism and the daulmonster alter ego. We think the tech-savvy teen is absolutely dauling.

Anabela Belikova
Belarus-born Anabela Belikova has it made. Handpicked by top casting director Russell Marsh, she can be seen in W, shot by Craig McDean, and Numero, by Greg Kadel. But the real star in her fur cap is the Prada campaign, in which she appears alongside red-hot Russians and recent Model Mania faves Sasha Pivovarova and Irina Kulikova. What a troika!

Veronika Antsipava
Also representing the Belarussian brigade is Veronika Antsipava. The minx from Minsk recently walked for Hussein Chalayan, DKNY and Proenza Schouler, and appeared in Italian Elle, Black, Teen Vogue and Japanese Vogue. She can soon be seen in German Vogue and the Moschino campaign by Peter Lindbergh. (Speaking of the former Soviet bloc, doesn't she totally look like Lena Olin in The Unbearable Lightness of Being in this pic?)

Masha Tyelna
Things are looking up for saucer-eyed Masha Tyelna, who puts the crane in Ukraine with her statuesque height and who, after walking for Givenchy, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Dries Van Noten and Yves Saint Laurent, has raised the bar.

Raschelle Osbourne
Jamaican jetsetter Raschelle Osbourne says what she misses most about home is the food, so expect big bites out of the Big Apple, where the statuesque 16-year-old and ping pong champ has just arrived.

Erin Heatherton
Illinois blondie Erin Heatherton is putting points on the board. Recent editorials in Flair, New York and British Elle, as well as campaigns for Michael by Michael Kors and Benetton, prove that this Piscean is playing for keeps.

Lais Oliveira
Counting fellow Brazilian babes Daiane Conterato, Carolina Pantoliano and Carol Sippel as roommates, Lais Oliveira could land jobs by osmosis alone. Yet the olive-skinned stunner has kept busy with DKNY and H&M campaigns, as well as editorials in Oyster, Italian Vogue, 10 and German Glamour. Her runway resume, meanwhile, namechecks Chanel, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Diane von Furstenberg. Did we mention she's currently shooting the MAC campaign with Eartha Kitt? Meow.
