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

Amanda Thorp

Straight-A student Amanda Thorp is at the top of her class in more ways than one. A towering beanstalk, she's been modeling less than a year, but has managed to nab appearances in V, Flaunt and Germany's Hek magazine. In addition to pursuing an acting career, the California cutie even competes in cross-country running. You could call her the face of multi-tasking.
Ariane Colman

Jetsetting Jamaican Ariane Coleman has everybody buzzing. The statuesque stunner had just stepped foot in New York when she was cast for the Custo Barcelona fall show, alongside Model Mania favorites Lisa Cant and Snejana Onopka. Then, catching the eye of David Sims, she landed the next Benetton campaign. Ya, mon!
Coco Rocha

British Columbian Coco Rocha is living up to her legendary first name. Not only was she recently immortalized by Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue, but she also opened the last Louis Vuitton show and high-stepped it for Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Versace, Christian Lacroix and, of course, Chanel. Look for her in the upcoming Dolce & Gabbana campaign by the seemingly smitten Meisel. And get this: she's an internationally-competing Irish step dancer. That's loco, Coco!
Anna Mariya Urazhevskaya

Her father is the president of the Canine Club of Russia and her mother is a veterinarian, but the fetching Anna Mariya Urazhevskaya has been sniffing out her own career. She's graced a Russian L'Officiel cover and walked for Dries Van Noten, Givenchy and Prada, which she opened. Upcoming spreads include Numero and Paris Vogue (shot by Mario Testino and styled by Mme Roitfeld herself), as well as the Kenzo and Blumarine campaigns. Woof!
Diana Kamalova

She's new even by modeling standards, but Slavic siren Diana Kamalova will soon be everywhere, and not only because the cheery cherub counts compatriot Natalia Vodianova as a close friend. She's already a hit in the pages of the Italian editions of Vogue and Glamour, and it won't be long before more cameras are all ova Kamalova!
Lyndsay Carol Nichols

Leggy Lyndsay Carol Nichols is making her hometown of Marietta, Georgia proud. The red-headed Southerner has appeared in Nylon and British Vogue, where she'll soon reappear through the trained lens of Paolo Roversi. The fashion set will soon have this "Georgian on their Minds."
Felicity Gilbert

She may be short in height, but the fresh-faced Felicity Gilbert is tall in talent. The British bombshell was interning at a fashion PR firm when she was sent to the Storm agency, who signed her at first sight. Since then she's walked for Marc Jacobs, and is featured in British, Italian and Japanese editions of Vogue. Look for her in the spring Self Service and April i-D. The petite pin-up could just be the next Kate Moss.
