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

Morgane Dubled

A swim fan, French native Morgane Dubled has made quite a splash. The lean brunette with Olympics-sized cheekbones had an impressive show season last month, walking for Calvin Klein, Viktor & Rolf, Gucci, Fendi, Christian Dior and D&G. Print-wise, you can catch her in Dazed & Confused, Japanese Vogue, 10 Magazine and Italian Marie Claire. All that, but still we want more Morgane.
Asia Pulko

After false starts with two other New York agencies, the headstrong Asia Pulko is now well on her way. Last season, the Polish teen terrible walked for Gucci, Miu Miu and Fendi in Milan, as well as Christian Dior, John Galliano and Hermès in Paris. Tearsheets include Italian Vogue, Deutsch, Bolero and Russian Elle. These days, Asia has left clubland for the relative calm of coffee shops and art galleries, becoming ever Greater Asia.
Xenia Markova

The latest Russian to conquer the West (but the first Model Mania girl to have a name begin with X, out of nearly 600), Xenia Markova is part of an elite stable at Moscow's Grace Models, home to former MM stars Natalia Vodianova, Eugenia Volodina, Ksenia Maximova and Polina Kouklina. Xenia has appeared in Pop, Italian Vogue and Italian Marie Claire, and walked for Fendi, Chanel and Anna Molinari, to name a few. Now spending more and more of her time in New York, Xenia is no Red Square.
Marina Peres

The most talked-about Spanish model since Eleonora Bose is the Punk-loving Marina Peres (in fact, we've never seen her without an iPod). Fresh from her debut runway season, which included Alexander McQueen, YSL Rive Gauche, Stella McCartney, Prada, Jil Sander and Christian Dior, señorita Marina can be seen in Numéro and Harper's Bazaar, and soon in Self Service. She also just shot the Loewe campaign with Inez & Vinoodh. Muy caliente!

Brazilian teen Solange Wilvert could very well become her country's leading export. Her runway resume reads Calvin Klein, Chanel, Jil Sander and Alexander McQueen, while her book bursts with tearsheets from Paris Vogue, Teen Vogue, 10 and, most recently, V magazine, shot by Glen Luchford (seen here). Sorry, Brazil, but we're not giving her back.

A practicing belly-dancer, Jenean is gyrating her way center stage. The statuesque mannequin, who hails from Philadelphia, has already appeared in Allure and Lucky, as well as Victoria's Secret and Armani Exchange campaigns. We predict next year will be hers.
Sarah Macdougall

A black belt in karate, Sarah Macdougall is chopping her way to the top. After appearing in Teen Vogue and Elle Girl, the freckly Florida native—and high school student, still—was tracked down to appear in Annie Leibovitz's multimedia campaign for Ann Taylor. Fresh-faced and self-disciplined, Sarah is our Karate Kid.
