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

Laryssa Castro

Calling to mind a "baby Isabeli," Laryssa is growing up quick, having already appeared in V, Tokion, Nylon and Spanish Vogue. With a big spread coming out in The Face, shot by Miles Aldridge, expect the fashion flock to be making goo-goo eyes at this Brazilian brunette.
Camila Dubay

Brazil produces great models with the regularity it once churned out star soccer players. Take Camila Dubay, for instance. She's received a champion's welcome since landing in New York, and has scored appearances in Tank, Citizen K, i-D, Italian Vogue and Visionaire. Camila's playing to win.
Kimanee Wilson

With a conversation-starter name and an individual look to match, it's no wonder that Kimanee stands out from the pack. She's walked for Givenchy and has tearsheets from V, City and British Glamour. And with a big-money Levis campaign under her belt, Kimanee is sweet music to her agency's ears.
Linda Vojtova

Late-breaking muse: Linda hasn't looked back since getting her start as a finalist in Elite's Model Look competition. The Czech stunner has editorials coming out in Italian, American and British Vogue, as well as Pop, Numéro and W. No wonder magazines like The Face and Vogue are writing articles about her. You read it here first.
Joana Preiss

A singer-performer in her own right, this lanky brunette is the Patti Smith of a new generation. The French femme, a sometime muse to photographer Nan Goldin, can be seen in French Elle, i-D and Dazed & Confused. Look out for her distinctive face in the new Vivienne Westwood campaign shot by Corrine Day. Joana's going straight to number one.
Sveva Alviti

This hip-hop loving blonde is busting all the right moves. Originally from Rome, Sveva follows in the footsteps of countryman Maria Carla, and can be seen in Harper's Bazaar, American Elle, Flair. She's recently done the Costume National campaign by Terry Richardson. Just don't call her phat!
Shannon Click

This sizzling Scorpio's raking in the cash. In addition to edgy editorials in mags like Nylon, the green-eyed blonde from LaVerne, California appears in ads for Abercrombie & Fitch, Wonderbra and Guess. Cha-ching!
