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

Bianca Balti

We have a soft spot for the pillow-lipped Piscean Bianca Balti. From a teensy town called Lodi in Northern Italy, the leggy brunette can be seen in Numero, i-D, L'Officiel, D and Russian Vogue, while her runway resume reads Miu Miu, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Proenza Schouler. We're goose down with that.
Ruslana Korshunova

The Rapunzel of Russia, Ruslana Korshunova and her wild tresses can be seen in W, L'Officiel, Italian Vogue, Numero, Pop, Jalouse and Citizen K, as well as campaigns for Blumarine's Blu Girl, Clarins, Kenzo and Moschino. In her off time, the 17-year-old Cancer loves to rock out to Nirvana and garage bands, proving she knows how to let her hair down.
Kasia Kniola

Full-time high schooler Kasia Kniola is making the grade. The 16-year-old Polish knockout has recently shot for Italian, Paris and Japanese Vogue, as well as indies Crash and i-D. At the most recent Paris collections, she walked for Dior, Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons. It won't be long before she tops fashion's honor roll.
Jesse Allison

One of starmaker Mario Testino's favorite new finds, a cozy friendship that all but guarantees a place in the pantheon of posers, Chicago native Jesse Allison has appeared in German Vogue and twice in Paris Vogue, not to mention the Versace campaign shot by none other than Testino.
Zoe Duchesne

A model and painter, French-Canadian cutie Zoe Duchesne is a work of art herself. The sublime Scorpio scored Chanel's cosmetics campaign after appearances in the French, British, Australian and American editions of Elle, but has artistic ambitions reaching farther than make-up. Case in point, she's just wrapped her latest foray, a short film she shot in Canada.
Eloise Anderson

Bewitching Brit Eloise Anderson is racing along fashion's fast track. Her book bursts with tearsheets from W, Italian Vogue, British Vogue, i-D and Tatler, but we predict she'll will become even more visible in seasons to come.
Autumn Hyle

One of the most talked-about newcomers this season is 16-year-old San Diegan Autumn Hyle. The golden child from the Golden State has been modeling for only eight months, but she's already picked up the Jil Sander runway exclusive in Milan, the Jil Sander campaign shot by David Sims, V magazine and, most recently, Pop shot by Horst and styled by Katie Grand. She's a seismic hit in the making.
