We're crazy in love with these new faces
By Joseph Tenni
Dorothea Barth Jorgensen
The most talked-about newcomer this season has to be sweet Swede Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, a bright star of Women's new sister agency, Women Direct. With an impressive runway resume—Burberry, Chanel, Prada, Lanvin, Jil Sander, Miu Miu, Dries Van Noten, Louis Vuitton, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs—the drama student and theater buff knows how to upstage the competition.

Lyndsey Scott
Ebony sensation Lyndsey Scott has the world at her size 9 feet. After a year in development, the New Jersey native walked exclusively for Calvin Klein, the first black model to do so. She's now cranking out campaigns, which means Lyndsey will soon be everywhere. Watch this face.

Rebecca Chandler
British brunette Rebecca Chandler is showing up in all the right places. With editorials in Amica and Velvet under her cinch-belt, Miss Chandler walked exclusively for Givenchy—a sign of incredible things to come.

Bruna Boechat
The latest on the Brazilian model assembly line is Bruna Boechat. Already a recognizable face down south, the ravishing brunette now calls New York home. The sky is the limit.

Kelli Lumi
Towering Estonian Kelli Lumi is no stranger to the runway, strutting for Nina Ricci (which she opened), Dior, John Galliano, Giorgio Armani, Ann Demeulemeester, Luella, Yohji Yamamoto, Undercover, Issey Miyake and Richard Nicoll. One day you're strolling through a shopping mall, and the next you're queen of the catwalk!

Hanna Rundlof
Striking Viking Hanna Rundlof debuted at the fall collections and nearly stole the shows, walking for Calvin Klein, Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Miu Miu, Costume National, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen and Dries Van Noten. Under the guidance of powerhouse agency Marilyn, the Swede's star is sure to rise.

Jetsetting Gemini Tao Okamoto is the latest preoccupation from Japan. It only took lopping off her hair for Supreme to sign her on the spot. Then came runway bookings for Miu Miu (the first Asian in three years), Dolce & Gabbana, Giles, Christopher Kane, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Kenzo. Look for the showtunes-loving songbird in W, Russian Vogue and a Benetton campaign.
