Delfine (Ford)
Everybody's waffling about Belgian beauty Delfine Bafort. She's a hit with Dolce & Gabbana, who booked her for their show, as well as the D&G campaign. Someone at Harper's Bazaar clearly loves her too, as Delfine has recently been photographed by three of the mag's marquee-name snappers, Mikael Jansson, Craig McDean and David Sims. Look for Delfine in the April issue of W, shot by Carter Smith, as well as the April issue of French Vogue, shot by Mario Testino. As if that weren't enough, she also has the new Balenciaga campaign, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and the Versus campaign, shot by Steven Meisel, coming out any day.
