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

Andrea Lapanje
Sarajevo-born siren Andrea Lapanje turns heads wherever she goes. With looks that call to mind a modern-day Christiane F (but without the smack habit!), the Cancerian has appeared in Jane and Australian Marie Claire.

Dasha Malygina
We have a crush on Russian Dasha Malygina. Since defecting to the West, the statuesque stunner has walked for Miu Miu and appeared in V. It won't be long before she marries English aristocracy and leads a glamorously charitable life, like that other Russian.

Shea Prueger
Fresh out of Iowa, hipster Shea Prueger is set to take on New York with her unique personal style. The leggy Leo with bowl-cut black hair, à la Peggy Moffitt, and pale blue eyes embodies the look of both the past and the future. The Brazilian brigade has nothing on her.

Dar
Modeling is a battlefield—just ask L.A. rock chick Dar. The Pat Benatar fan (and doppelgänger) has recently posed for Harper’s Bazaar, Exit and French magazine. Now she's just waiting for an 80's flashback shoot.

Diana F
Red-hot Russian Diana F. is on fire. So new she barely has a portfolio and hasn't yet been to New York, but the tennis buff is acing her appointments in Paris. Expect her chart to fill with options from fashion’s power pack soon enough. The future looks blindingly bright for Lady Diana.

Guisela Rhein
Models can really rake it in, especially Brazilians, who account for three of the world's five top earners, at least according to the news this week. It won't be long before Guisela Rhein joins the cashed-up bunch. The sassy Scorpio has appeared in Italian Marie Claire and Spanish Glamour, and her runway resume reads Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, John Galliano, Christian Dior and Vivienne Westwood. Just wait.

Sammy Jo Wilkinson
Gemini jetsetter Sammy Jo Wilkinson has plenty to smile about. The beaming newbie from Miramar, Florida, has already shot for Teen Vogue and Abercrombie & Fitch, with a lot more on the way.
