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

From the frosty Eastern European republic of Lithuania comes the statuesque stunner Rasa. The willowy blonde has already graced the cover of D and appeared in Italian Vogue an impressive four times. She also shot the Versus campaign, by Steven Meisel, and Patrick Demarchelier recently shot her pale features for American Marie Claire—both passports to success.
Ives Kolling

Teen tearaway Ives Kolling is on the fast track to success. The ballsy blonde's editorial resume is already miles ahead: i-D, British Vogue, Italian Vogue, V, American Harper's Bazaar and Pop. She also just shot campaigns for Cavalli Jeans and Club Monaco. A Gemini who's unequivocally going places, this Brazilian is worth a million!
Reggie Anderson

Another brunette turning heads is Long Island native Reggie Anderson. (No relation to Pamela, she says.) The Cancerian cutie has appeared in i-D, Interview and Italian Glamour and is set to have an impressive show season. Reggie still commutes into the city, but it won't be long before she trades her Metro Card for a platinum card.
Karolina Wydra

Karolina Wydra is rocking the Western world! The Piscean can be seen in Citizen K, Nylon, Australian Vogue, Flaunt and Surface. The Led Zeppelin fan—who was born in Opole, Poland—has earned serious money in campaigns for Aveda shot by Regan Cameron as well as Armani Exchange, shot by both David Sims and Terry Richardson.
Sheila Ruschel

After capturing the heart of starmaker Ellen von Unwerth, 16-year-old Brazilian Sheila Ruschel has not looked back. The brassy brunette can be seen in French Elle, Interview, Arena and L'Uomo Vogue and in a campaign for Todd Oldham Jeans. This avid reader and wannabe journalist will soon be making headlines.
Celine

A new day has come: sizzling hot Scorpio Celine is the new teen on the scene. The Lower East Side local can be seen in V, Another, Dazed & Confused, French Elle and British Vogue and is a favorite of influential photographers Vincent Peters and Mario Sorrenti. Celine's heart will go on!
Asta

Further proof of fashion's mania for Lithuania is Asta. The skinny teen has had a great start to her career, thanks to a victory in the 2001 Ford Supermodel of the World competition. Look for her in the forthcoming issue of Elle, by Gilles Bensimon. You won't be the only one paying attention.
