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

Jessica Pauletto

Hailing from the south of Brazil, Jessica Pauletto is going straight to the top. Scouted in a shopping center, the 15-year-old has attracted the likes of Brazilian Vogue, Cosmo Girl, Purple Fashion, Teen Vogue and Deutsch Magazine.
Yulia Vassiltsova

Classic beauty Yulia Vassiltsova is a one-woman Russian revolution. The feisty Scorpio has stormed the pages of Italian Vogue, D and Nylon, and has captured both the next Benetton ad campaign with David Sims and the upcoming DKNY campaign. When not high-stepping the catwalk, Yulia plays photographer herself and can't get enough of Donald Duck. Cute!
Stefanie Nazoyan

Move over, Celine Dion. Sassy Stefanie Nazoyan is this season's catch du jour. Like the pop diva, the tempting Taurian calls Montreal home and loves to sing and...fish? That's right, when not jet-setting the globe, the Armenian-French Canadian can be found boat-fishing. Already cast in a variety of shows this season, she'll be reeling them in soon enough.
Aleisia Arkley

The Canadian invasion continues thanks to Kelly Streit's impeccable eye at Mode Models, the same agency that put Heather Marks, Julia Dunstall and Jamie Lee Johnsen in every notable fashion Rolodex. The blue-eyed Leo Aleisia Arkley is the latest to hail from the Great White North. In just a few short months the Canuk from Calgary has come in from the cold to heat up many a magazine. Watch for her in a forthcoming Italian Glamour.
Tatyana Usova

Tireless Tatyana Usova is unstoppable. Already a cover girl for Surface, she has appeared in Japanese Vogue, American Elle and the new Dolce & Gabbana campaign. The Tatyana Siberian Express will soon be rolling into the pages of Italian Vogue, Japanese Vogue and V, shot by Terry Richardson. All aboard!
Aleksandra Pierzchala

A Polish newcomer, the pulchritudinous Aleksandra Pierzchala (say that three times!) is ready to conquer the catwalk. After her high school gym teacher asked her to walk in a store fashion show, she was whisked off to Warsaw and, only weeks later, to Paris. The tempestuous Taurian has already made a peekaboo in Grazia and British Glamour, but will surprise the masses in the upcoming print and television campaigns for Lee Jeans. Get your Tivo ready.
Davina Mulimbi

Of African heritage, Belgian-born Davina Mulimbi is the belle of the Parisian runway. The Statuesque Scorpio has walked for John Galliano and Dior, and has appeared in American Elle, French Glamour, French Elle and French magazine. Simplement divine, Davina!
