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

Vanessa Milde
Other than the misnomer, there's nothing mild about South Australian siren Vanessa Milde. The jetsetting Gemini, whose ballet teacher suggested modeling, ruled the spring collections, walking for Chanel, Lanvin, Nina Ricci and Loewe. She's coming on strong.

Angelika Kocheva
Captivating Angelika Kocheva has the world on a leash. After stalking the runways of Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, Christopher Kane and Alberta Ferretti, the Ukrainian mannequin (Ukrainequin?) scored campaigns for Prada and Philosophy. We, too, are slaves to the Slav.

Danguole
Since fleeing her frosty home of Latvia, first-name-only Danguole has apparently found Latin love, posing for the Italian editions of Elle, Amica and Marie Claire. No surprise, really, considering the Baltic beauty (and, by the way, spelling bee champion) was discovered in the warm air of a plant nursery.

Anna Wang
Chinese charmer Anna Wang turns heads wherever she goes, especially back home, where she's graced the cover of Chinese Vogue three times and Elle no fewer than twenty. In all, we're talking 130 covers. Look for the young mother in the latest Australian Vogue and the new Maybelline ads. Maybe she's born with it...

Ali Stephens
All-American saint Ali Stephens had a stellar debut show season, walking for Prada, Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Chloé, Celine, Dries Van Noten and Givenchy. The Utah teen and state-ranked sprinter, who's already appeared in Another and Pop, shows no signs of slowing down.

Laura Blokhina
Agents for Siberian stunner and karaoke fan Laura Blokhina must be working overtime. After strutting for Valentino, Costume National, Alexander McQueen, Christian Lacroix, Luella and (of course) Iceberg, leggy Laura can currently be seen in W, as well as the pages of the German and Spanish Vogue.

Claudia Seiler
From a small farming village in Brazil comes sizzling Claudia Seiler, one of few South American exports to have a Prada runway exclusive. Then came shoots for Dazed & Confused, i-D, Russian Vogue and V—all hitting newsstands soon. Now based in New York, she loves Brazilian BBQ-hopping around the city.
