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

Ilze Bajare

Full-time high school student Ilze Bajare is rising to the top of the class. Calling to mind a baby Rachel Kirby, the New York-based, Latvian-born beauty was recently booked for POP magazine with Peter Lindbergh—a very impressive start for this 15-year-old Virgo! We give Ilze top marks.
Kathryn Tomberlin

Here's the scoop: Ginger-haired jetsetter Kathryn Tomberlin loves soft serve ice cream and can always be found at Tasti D-lite. The pale leggy mannequin can also be seen in Trace and Interview (photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth), as well as the new Benetton campaign. Won't be long before she's the flavor of the month.
Marie Bartosova

If looks could kill, Eastern European import Marie Bartosova would be an assassin. The tall teen can be seen in Italian Vogue as the subject of Paolo Roversi, as well as 20Ans magazine. The brunette is a strong contender to make a hit this season.
Ingrid Feitosa

Brazil is still the most tapped source of new models. Latest example is teen sensation Ingrid Feitosa. The shorthaired brunette can be seen in Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused and Surface. Watch her samba her way to the top.
Amanda Jo

Although her name sounds like she's from "The Waltons," Amanda Jo is a contemporary beauty. The Georgian Gemini has had a fortuitous kickstart to her career, having shot W with Steven Klein and Japanese Vogue with Nathaniel Goldberg. Like all modern It Girls, Amanda is a multi-tasker who makes jewelry and plays guitar in a band called Army of Love.
Lenka Bozikova

Another teen rocking the western world is this sassy stunner from Slovakia. Headturning Lenka has worked for Teen Vogue and Spoon, and follows in the footsteps of fellow Model Mania star, Zuzana Macasova. Bratislava is hotter than lava!
Zinta Braukis

Californian cutie Zinta Braukis is unstoppable. The Aries teen has been super busy of late, posing for such titles as D, Italian Glamour, V, Jalouse and 10 magazine. We're into Zinta.
