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

Adama Diallo
Ebony sensation Adama Diallo has plenty to smile about. The statuesque stunner got her start as a finalist in the Elite Model Look, going on to grace the pages of Italian Glamour, with plenty more to come.

Constance Jablonski
Fetching femme Constance Jablonski came out of nowhere to walk for some of the world's most coveted catwalks. Her runway resume reads Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, Nina Ricci, Sonia Rykiel, Hermès, Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Kane, Bottega Veneta, Marni and Missoni. The Gallic goddess is unstoppable!


Sigita Nedzvecka
Leggy Latvian Sigita Nedzvecka is scoring more places than the hockey rink. With appearances in Teen Vogue, Velvet, Metal, Mixte, Amica and L'Officiel, the future looks bright for the lithe Leo.

Natalie Hockey
All-American Natalie Hockey was the surprise of the season. The blonde, blue-eyed belle walked for Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten and Rodarte. From what thin air did she suddenly appear, you ask? "I was discovered at a Narcisco Rodriguez show," she tells Model Mania. "A friend snuck me in and I was approached by a few photographers. That show cemented my love of the fashion world." And her career, apparently.

Roza Gough
With the Latin fire in her, Roza Gough is setting hearts alight all over the world. The sassy Cancerian from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic will own 2009.

Ayan Elmi
Somalia-born Canadian Ayan Elmi had an impressive show season in Paris. It won't be long before all eyes are on the latter-day Iman. Tickle me, Elmi!

Valeria Dmitrienko
Ukrainian import Valeria Dmitrienko turns heads wherever she goes. The willowy beauty walked for Givenchy, L'Wren Scott, Salvatore Ferragamo, Zac Posen and Narciso Rodriguez. Look for vivacious Valeria in V and German Glamour.
