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

Behati Prinsloo

Out of Africa, Behati Prinsloo has left the playing fields of Namibia to score model points on the international runways. The MVP of the fall '06 shows, she walked an impressive sixty-eight shows, including Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Louis Vuitton. She can also be seen in British, Italian and French Vogue, as well as campaigns for Aquascutum and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Hailing from a tiny village, Behati is clearly goal-oriented.
Elizabeth Redvers

According to model lore, Elizabeth Redvers was scouted in possibly the most unglamorous place on earth—a bathroom at Grand Central Station in New York. Porcelain-skinned though she is, the American beauty now has other conversation starters. She's become part of the furniture at American Glamour, for whom she's currently shooting in Rome with Arthur Elgort, and she's appeared in American Elle, shot by Ruven Afanador. It won't be long before she's flush with fame and fortune.
Nastia Gorshkova

Contrary to her name, Nastia Gorshkova is all goodness. The cherubic Slav to fashion has already graced the pages of Nylon, Italian Glamour, French Cosmopolitan and also appears in Diesel's spring ad campaign. Watch her sparkle on the cover of her native Russian Vogue and in Flair magazine. Simply divine.
Han

South Korean cutie Han is bringing heart and Seoul to the international fashion scene. Already a recognizable face back home on the peninsula, the onyx-haired Asian sensation made star appearances on the runways of Gucci and Marc Jacobs. With her standout looks, she may be next to claim single-name model status.
Flavia de Oliveira

Brazilian babe Flavia de Oliveira is getting a taste of the sweet life. One of the busiest new girls during the recent shows, she walked for Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Balenciaga, among other top labels. She's also scored a sprinkling of campaigns, such as Cesare Paciotti (shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin), Blumarine (shot by Craig McDean) and an Armani fragrance. Editorial includes Harper's Bazaar, Italian Vogue and Self Service. She's eye candy, for sure.
Tanya Dziahileva

Blue-eyed Belarussian Tanya Dziahileva has the fashion world hypnotized. Her captivating features can be seen in a recent W spread, shot by Mario Sorrenti, as well as Paolo Roversi-lensed stories in British and Italian editions of Vogue. Look for her editorial magic to continue with stories in V, Chinese Vogue, Numero and Wonderland. Did we mention ad campaigns for Hugo Boss and Yves Saint Laurent? We're spellbound.
Bette Franke

Discovered shopping with her mom in Amsterdam, Netherlandish knockout Bette Franke has appeared in French Vogue, Pop, V and i-D, and on the runways for Prada, Jil Sander and Calvin Klein. Her dark features have sent top photographers into a tizzy. See her shine in a Dolce & Gabbana pre-collection campaign by Steven Meisel. Let's be Franke, the 16-year-old is an icon in the making.
