We're crazy in love with these new faces
By Joseph Tenni

Sara Cardillo
Professional dancer Sara Cardillo, Italy's latest bella ragazza, probably performed the saltarello when she scored the cover of Italian Glamour. Come September, the confessed french-fry-munching queen of the dance floor will be shimmying down many a runway. She can't put a foot wrong.

Ellen Shantz
From sharp-eyed agent Elmer Olsen in Toronto comes Ellen Shantz. The guitar-playing musical prodigy was discovered by a stylist on a plane and was soon redirected to New York, where she snared a Teen Vogue shoot and just wrapped the new Abercrombie & Fitch campaign, shot by Bruce Weber. Leave it to Shantz.

Agyness Deyn
With punk looks to match the sound of her band, appropriately named Lucky Knitwear, the boyish Brit Agyness Deyn is weaving her way to model stardom. Currently appearing in Italian Vogue and British Vogue, shot by Mario Testino, the Aquarian can also be seen in an upcoming Burberry campaign and a spread in POP. Manchester calling.

Marie Steiss
Magnifique Marie Steiss, daughter of French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, is on her way to ruling the modeling world. The face of Givenchy's new fragrance, Ange Ou Démon, the mademoiselle will also be featured in an upcoming issue of French Elle. Vive Marie!

Eva Helene
Following in the footsteps of fellow countrywoman Freja Beha comes Eva-Helene. The Nordic knockout, after winning a model contest in her native Denmark, has appeared in Jalouse, Dansk and i-D. The Scorpio is giving Copenhagen's other claim to fame, the Little Mermaid, a swim for her money.

Daiane Conterato
Not just another pretty Brazilian face, Daiane Conterato was hand-picked for Prada's fall '06 runway, where she caught the attention of Steven Meisel, who photographed her for her editorial debut in Italian Vogue. You can catch her in the next French Vogue, Numero, V and L'Uomo Vogue, who've given her the cover and an impressive 25-page spread. Daiane will dominate next season.

Tayla Collins
Hailing from a small town in the great state of Georgia, life for Tayla Collins is becoming peachier than ever. The blonde beauty has appeared in Pop, i-D, Italian Vogue and W, shot by Michael Thomson. Did we mention she stars in Jil Sander's new fall campaign?
