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

Michele Ouellette

Northern California cutie Michele Ouellette is nothing short of trail-blazing. Scouted by Ford's Argus-eyed Natalie Smith, the down-to-Earth teen has posed for Pop, Jalouse and Italian Glamour, among a host of other Euro-chic titles. There's no stopping her.
Katja Shchekina

Red hot Russian Katja Shchekina is burning it up. After appearances in the Paris and Italian editions of Vogue, as well as on the cover of L'Officiel, the sultry Slav scored campaigns for Byblos and Dolce & Gabbana, and walked for Alexander McQueen, Costume National, D&G, Emanuel Ungaro, Givenchy and YSL Rive Gauche. Is it us or is it warm in here?
Sunna Gottshalk

After modeling for only a year, Sunna Gottshalk has appeared in V, Jane, Japanese Vogue and Allure three times, shot by Michael Thompson. There is no brighter jewel from Jamaica.
Alexandra Tomlinson

Southern belle Alexandra Tomlinson has gone from Georgia peach to passion fruit in the blink of an eye. She's recently appeared in V, Dazed, Flair and Japanese Vogue, as well as campaigns for Benetton and Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. A taste-maker, she is.
Martha Hunt

The hunt isn't over, she's only just starting. Hailing from North Carolina, Martha Hunt has her sights set on bigger horizons. Expect to see more of her very soon.
Hye Park

The delectable Hye Park is the latest Asian dish on the menu. The American morsel of Korean parentage walked for nearly every major show last season—her first—including Marc Jacobs, Prada, Lanvin and Balenciaga. She's also shot for Italian Vogue, Ten, Numéro and, true to her roots, W Asia, Korea Vogue and Bazaar Korea. In her free time, she visits Koreatown in New York City where the cuisine is almost as good as dear old mom's.
Ines Crnokrak

Belgrade beauty Ines Crnokrak has a book boasting tearsheets from Tank, Mixt(e), L'Officiel and i-D, and prowled the catwalk for Christian Dior, John Galliano, Celine and Moschino Cheap and Chic last show season. It seems she's already doing the footwork in realizing her dream to become a shoe designer.
