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

Karlie Kloss
Midwest beanpole Karlie Kloss has everybody talking and gawking (and not just because she's the tallest in her family). After getting her start in a model contest, Karlie clocked up appearances in Teen Vogue and Italian Glamour, among other magazines, working with photographers Arthur Elgort, Bruce Weber, Raymond Meier and Thomas Schenk. But then, she's probably used to rarefied air.

Hailing from Chester, in the north of England, 15-year-old Sian has the alien look of now. The ambitious Aries, who won't let her family walk out the door if they're not styled to her standards, has already appeared in a Topshop campaign and Italian Glamour. Sian has landed.

Megan McNierney
Fetching Florida femme Megan McNierney is experiencing a NASA-like ride to success. After walking for DKNY, Temperley and Tuleh, she scored editorials in L'Oficiel and Allure, as well as campaigns for Theory and Dolce & Gabbana. 3-2-1, lift off!

Sharina Gutierrez
Californian cutie Sharina Gutierrez, a Cancerian of Filipino descent, has appeared in Teen Vogue and campaigns for Levi’s and Benetton. And that's just the start for the lean teen.

Karin Adam
The latest to step off the Brazilian model assembly line is gangly brunette Karin Adam. The classic beauty and animal-lover is new to New York, but her chart is filling fast with options from fashion's MIPs (most important person, duh).

Kate Rooper
From Elmer Olsen Models in Toronto (home to former Model Mania stars Daria Werbowy, Ellen Shantz and Maria Dvirnik) comes Kate Rooper. The refreshing sprite, who says she loves the beauty of her native Victoria but craves the culture shock of big cities like New York and Tokyo, is bouncing off he walls with promise—one to keep an eye on, for sure.

Sagittarian sensation Joss (not to be confused with that other Joss) hails from the lowlands of Holland. We predict the banged brunette will make her mark this season.
