Monthly batch of hot new models to feast your eyes on
By Joseph Tenni
Dewi Driegen

All eyes were on this Flemish beauty when designer Nicolas Ghesquière flew her in exclusively for his New York show last fall. Dewi continues to captivate, with appearances on the covers of L'Officiel and Jalouse, as well as in the Armani Exchange ads by Max Vadukul. Forget Belgium and Brazil: let's go Dutch.
Shawna McBean

With a head for business and a bod for sin, sassy Shawna has graced the pages of Jane and Honey, and is hoping to make a name for herself with Sistah's Harlem NYC, the clothing line she owns with her best friend. Shawna and her partner recently met Iman at a party for her cosmetics line, and the supermogul has since become their business mentor. This sistah will go fah.
Eugenia Volodina

Hailing from the Republic of Tatarstan, Eugenia has already come a long way. She is the new darling of Steven Meisel, and can be seen in Italian Vogue, Arena Homme Plus, Harper's Bazaar, as well as in the new Gucci and Christian Dior J'Adore campaigns. Eugenia is the newest discovery from Grace Models in Russia, the agency responsible for former Model Mania star Natalia Vodianova.
Robin Fail

North Carolina native Robin Fail is determined not to live up to her last name. At only 15, the freckled teen has already secured spots in Tokion, Nylon and Japanese Vogue, as well as in Muteen, the new teen magazine published by Jalouse. Go, rockin' Robin!
Brittnia Bewley

Keep your eyes on the initials "BB." This beauty has made an impressive start and can be seen on the pages of Pop, Numero, Self Service, i-D and British Vogue. Miss Bewley from Kentucky, is lucky, lucky, lucky.
Emily McWilliam

This lean androgyne can be seen in i-D, The Face, Surface, British Glamour and British Elle. Emily has plenty to smile about, considering she made great money in campaigns for Krizia, Toni & Guy and Versus.
Nadine Strittmatter

Steven Meisel is keen on Nadine, and so are we. The equestrian-loving Swiss has just shot for V, i-D and L'Officiel. Featured by Meisel in the new Versus campaign, Nadine has arrived on the scene.
