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

Natasha Poly

Red-hot Russian Natasha Poly is one of the most talked-about newbies of the season. Why? Not only did Carine Roitfeld style her for an upcoming single-model spread in Paris Vogue, photographed by Steven Klein, but also for Italian Vogue, lensed by Craig McDean. As for the just-wrapped collections, the sultry czarina walked for Balenciaga, YSL, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi, among countless others. Everyone's rushin' for this Russian.
Sal Taylor

Brit brat Sal Taylor is all spunk. With a book bursting with tearsheets from i-D, Another, British Elle and British Vogue, the captivating Capricorn has landed many a campaign this season, such as Paul & Joe. She's our gal pal, Sal.

With a single name and a singular look, Cameron is one to watch. The beaut from Boston has appeared in Numero, 10 and Japan Vogue, and walked for Fendi, Miu Miu, Prada, Calvin Klein and Marc by Marc Jacobs. And, as if she had a second to spare, the tireless brainiac even plays the cello and practices kung fu when she's not writing a book. We're not making this stuff up—the girl's got it goin' on.
Iza Olak

Promising Pole Iza Olak is vaulting to fame and fortune. Already appearing in practically more Vogues than there are countries, in addition to model-launchers Numero and Wallpaper, Iza trotted for Helmut Lang, Dries Van Noten, Givenchy, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and opened Comme des Garçons at the collections. How's that for the girl from Gdansk?
Adrijana Dejanovic

Croatian sensation Adrijana Dejanovic can't put a foot wrong. Her recent editorial resume boasts V, Italian Glamour, Nylon and Italian Elle, while her shows in the last round included Armani, Chanel and Christian Dior. Unstoppable!
Dalia Dubrindyte

Lithuania mania shows no signs of calming down. The latest on the Baltic conveyor belt is Dalia Dubrindyte, who can be seen in Italian Vogue, British Elle, Squint and the campaign for Alberta Ferretti's lingerie line. We're crazy in love.
Ujjwala Raut

Though no overnight success, subcontinental siren Ujjwala Raut is more than making up for lost time. The finalist in 1996's Elite Model Look—along with former Model Mania stars Isabeli Fontana, Michelle Alves, Ana Beatriz and Natasha Vojnovic—recently appeared in German Vogue, i-D and British Elle, and is the new face of Yves Saint Laurent cosmetics. Thank you, India.
