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

Katrin Thormann
With stilts for legs, Katrin Thormann knew about rarefied air even before she catapulted to new heights with a recent cover of Dazed & Confused, shot by Mariano Vivanco. Then came the spring collections, which the German and Kirsten Owen doppelgänger all but owned, walking for Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Prada, Marni, Dolce & Gabbana, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. There's nothing the leggy Libran can't do.

Camila Mingori
Brazilian bambi Camila Mingori has the world at her size-7 feet. Already a favorite in São Paulo, the doe-eyed darling recently took on New York, Milan and Paris, working the runway for Vivienne Westwood, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Ann Demeulemeester and Giorgio Armani. After the collections, Camila stayed on in Europe to shoot some editorials, which means she'll soon be everywhere.


Delaney Wheeler
While all-American Delaney Wheeler has been clocking up plenty of frequent flyer miles, the petite perfectionist has only been modeling a short time. She's still a full-time student, after all, and vice president of her class. Take that, Palin.

Karol Jaramillo
Colombian coffee bean Karol Jaramillo is stimulating our senses, and we're not alone. The world is waking up to the guitar-playing, horse-riding brunette. The burst of energy is set to percolate well into next year.

Kendra Spears
No relation to Britney, Kendra Spears is a star nevertheless. The statuesque Leo with a signature mole was a sociology student when she entered the Ford Supermodel of the World contest earlier this year. Fast forward to the spring runway season, her first, where the Seattle native walked for Gucci, Nina Ricci, Lanvin, Hermès, Costume National, Christian Lacroix, Valentino and L'Wren Scott. Look for her in the next BCBG campaign.

Nicole Clulee
Hailing from Dunedin, New Zealand, Taurean teen Nicole Clulee turns heads wherever she goes, including those of fashion's most influential. Watch this face.

Ymre Stiekema
Dutch damsel Ymre Stiekema has everything going for her. Since catching the eye of casting director extraordinaire Russell Marsh, she opened Prada's spring show and starred in the label's Linea Rossa eyewear campaign. The waters are only beginning to part for the Aquarian.
