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

Anastasija Kondratjeva
Towering teen Anastasija Kondratjeva is on everyone's lips, even if saying her name is a little like speaking in tongues. With boy hips and legs for days, the lean Latvian walked for Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, with the rest of them lining up by next show season, we predict.

Ariel Meredith
The most sought-after woman to come out of Louisiana since Britney Spears, Ariel Meredith is sitting pretty in New York City. Just starting out, the ebony beauty has already walked for L'Wren Scott and Junya Watanabe, and shot for H&M and British Cosmopolitan. She's in the zone, y'all.


Anya Kazakova
Red hot Russian Anya Kazakova is one of the most talked-about newcomers this season, after appearances at Prada, Marni, Nina Ricci, Kenzo, Alexander McQueen and Calvin Klein, which she opened. The future looks bright for the saucy Soviet.

Helena Babic
With her nervy red mane, quirky freckles and cheeky smile, Croatian sensation Helena Babic bubbles over with personality. Look for the Aquarian in i-D magazine.

Heather Isaacson
Brazen brunette Heather Isaacson means business. Although a newbie, the agreeable Aries from Skippack, Pennsylvania, is already getting approval from those who matter. It won't be long before her passport is filled with stamps from all nations of the fashion world.

Magda Plawucka
Lithe Libran Magda Plawucka is a classic beauty packed with potential. The perfectly proportioned Pole will own 2009.

Charlotte Hoyer
Danish delight Charlotte Hoyer is showing up in all the right places, by which we mean all the right catwalks: Calvin Klein, Marni, Chloé, Louis Vuitton and Alberta Ferretti. Expect to see more of the Nordic knockout in the coming months.
