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

Rhaisa

The latest to step off the Brazilian model assembly line is the baby-faced Rhaisa. Already a runway regular back home, she's been raising eyebrows around the world with appearances in Brazilian Vogue, German Vogue and Japanese Vogue with Terry Richardson. Expect to see a lot more of the sixteen-year-old during the next show season.
Elin S.

Discovered walking the aisles of Ikea in her native Sweden, Elin S. is turning out to be a lot more than anyone bargained for. A full-time student, the Nordic knockout can be seen in Numéro and Italian Vogue (twice), with many more appearances in store for spring. How Swede it is.
Inga Barkovska

Lithe Latvian Inga Barkovska is making her mark, already hitting the bullseye with editorials in Interview, Harper's Bazaar Australia, Dazed and Confused, and Tokion. The self-described shopaholic had London calling when she walked Julian Macdonald's spring 06 show and starred in Vivienne Westwood's latest campaign. What better way to ring up credit?
Yevgeniya Kedrova

Bolshevik beauty Yevgeniya Kedrova isn't clowning around. Although she attended circus school as a child, the willowy Russian's first modeling gigs were walking the runways for Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior just months ago. Catch Yevgeniya's next act as she juggles couture week, which we hear will include an editorial in Paris Vogue.
Xanthi Tsalikis

With a name straight out of an ancient Greek epic, Xanthi Tsalikis has already posed for both Teen Vogue and a Sephora campaign. She's an instant classic.
Louba Drykova

Sultry Ukrainian Louba Drykova is making a splash in modeling's deep end. After an impressive runway season in Paris, the towering Louba is ready to springboard into the New York fashion scene.
Ginta

Leggy Latvian Ginta is going for gold in the competitive world of modeling. Scoring an editorial in Teen Vogue and British Glamour, the pixie-faced blonde who loves playing volleyball will see her career spike in 2006.
