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

Jasmin Ploder
From the little town of Rorschacherberg, just outside Zurich, comes Jasmin Ploder. The hip-hop Swiss Miss, discovered by Visage models, has walked for Jil Sander, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Comme des Garçons. Somewhere in there is a joke about Rorschach inkblot tests and CdG paper dresses, but we'll leave it well enough alone. For now.

Michelle Hicks
Chicago-born Michelle Hicks has a lot in common with '90's near-supermodel Michele Hicks. To start, both are blue-eyed American brunettes, but while Michele senior has moved on to acting, Michelle junior has just landed in New York, where she's already getting a great reaction. It won't be long before the Scorpio strikes!

Arlenis Sosa
Caribbean cutie Arlenis Sosa is nothing short of an overnight sensation. The Dominican has been modeling mere minutes, yet she's already seduced Steven Meisel's lens for American and Italian Vogue. Islands in the stream, that's what they are.

Irina Gorban
You could say Russian mannequin Irina Gorban is a beautiful blank slate. She's just arrived to the Big Apple, after being discovered while shopping with her sister in their hometown of Irkutsk. We're told that Ina, for short, is one of the most requested new faces at One, so you can expect to see more of the university student.

Aleksandra Nilsen
Ballerina Aleksandra Nilsen can't put a foot wrong. The Norwegian beauty has caught the eye of Terry Richardson, who just shot her for the Jimmy Choo Cruise campaign. Also look for the sassy Sagittarian in Amica magazine.

Maria Port
Jetsetting Gemini Maria Port is clocking up frequent flyer miles like there's no tomorrow. It's all new and interesting for the Estonian stunner, who's making great strides with her cherubic face.

Cato van Ee
Dutch treat Cato van Ee has plenty to smile about. After star appearances on the runway for Prada and Miu Miu, as well as covers of L'Officiel and Dutch Elle, Cato recently shot with Steven Meisel for CK Jeans. Unstoppable!
