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

Emily C
Football fan Emily C. hails from sunny Perth, Australia, home to former Model Mania stars Gemma Ward and Zoe Loveland. Now in New York, the part-indigenous Leo is about to kick her modeling career into high gear.

Michaela Kocianova
It's quite possible Slovakian stunner Michaela Kocianova has walked, altogether, a mile on the runway. Just last season, she made star appearances at Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Lanvin and Chanel—with no signs of slowing down. Now that's a leg up.

The daughter of a former Ford model, California cutie Ryan has modeling in her blood, despite walking into the L.A. branch a day late for an open call. Newest among a new crop, she'll be everywhere faster than you can say "lucky." Keep an eye out for the leggy Leo.

Jo Takla
With pixie features and a bowl-cut do, and appearances in Elle Girl and Paper, tomboyish Jo Takla is making her mark. The Chicago native of Egyptian heritage has a quirky look that will take her to the top this year—and that's no pyramid scheme.

Magdalena Frackowiak
Perfectly proportioned Pole Magdalena Frackowiak was the surprise hit of last season, walking for Viktor & Rolf, Valentino, Sonia Rykiel and Alexander McQueen, not to mention opening for Yves Saint Laurent. She's now reaping the benefits with bookings for Italian Vogue, W, Harper's Bazaar and Italian Glamour.

Georgia Frost
With Veronica Lake-like platinum blonde hair and dark brows, British beauty Georgia Frost gets noticed wherever she goes. With recent gigs for W and Italian Vogue, she'll own the collections next month.

Olja Ivanisevic
Serbian sensation Olja Ivanisevic can do no wrong. Last season, the towering teen clocked up appearances at Luella Bartley, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Gucci, Jil Sander, Missoni, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy. She's also scored Italian Vogue (with Karl Lagerfeld and Melanie Ward), Paris Vogue (with Craig McDean and Carine Roitfeld), Numero, Another and Pop. Unstoppable!
