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

Heather Bratton

Not since Niki Taylor has the state of Florida seemed so fruity fresh. Its latest export is the mouth-watering Heather Batton, who burst on the scene in her very first season, walking for Gucci, Jil Sander, Miu Miu and Prada, the only new face for spring to do so. Editorial-wise, she's appeared in British, Japanese and Italian (three times, with Steven Meisel) editions of Vogue, as well as V (four times), Self Service and Pop. Catch the Cancerian in the new Balenciaga campaign shot by David Sims. Juicy!
Annika Stenvall

Finnish filly Annika Stenvall can make men cry with her Lolita-like sex appeal. Her book boasts tearsheets from i-D, Flaunt and Arude, while she made decent dough in campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch (with Bruce Weber) and Kookai. She's simply irresistible.
Irina Lazareanu

Quebecoise cutie Irina Lazareanu is all the rage. The hard-working Gemini, who's also a dancer and songwriter (she wrote a track for Baby Shambles), is in the December issue of Paris Vogue by Steven Klein and Italian Vogue by Steven Meisel, with David Sims also under her spell. The Romanian refugee has further appeared in i-D, Numero and Nylon. Look for her in upcoming campaigns for Balenciaga, Mulberry, Just Cavalli and Anna Molinari. It's like she doesn't sleep.
Sophie Vlaming

The newest knockout from the Netherlands is Sophie Vlaming. The bushy-browed brunette has recently posed for Dazed & Confused, Numero, French Elle, British Vogue, Italian Vogue, V, all due out soon. This Cancerian can't be stopped.
Tatiana Lyadockrina

We've always been russophiles, but Tatiana Lyadockrina has us fully rushin'. The tsarina's Paris show schedule included walks for Chanel, Dior, Lanvin and Givenchy, while she's graced the pages of the Italian editions of Vogue, Glamour and Vanity Fair, not to mention 10, Flair and Nylon. She's even done advertising for Vivienne Westwood and can be seen in the current Sportmax campaign. She may have more dash than ruble now, but that's sure to change soon for the Kate Moss doppelganger.
Anna-Maria Boelskov

Bedroom-eyed blonde Anna-Maria may still be green, but not for long. The Danish delight, who has a degree in nutrition and health, can already be seen in Australian Harper's Bazaar. There'll be a lot more on the sassy Scorpio's plate very soon.
Camila Finn

Scorching hot Scorpio Camila Finn has not stopped working since she was crowned Ford's Supermodel of the World. Following in the footsteps of Natalia Vodianova, the Brazilian teen has had an exclusive for Calvin Klein two seasons running. Her other runway exclusive was Gucci in Milan. She's also shot for Teen, Brazilian, Italian and Paris Vogue. Camila is here to stay.
