From models with ethereal features to the ultra exotic, we've got a feeling these models to watch are the hot property casting directors will be fighting over come February. Click through to take a look at the gorgeous faces you'll be seeing a lot more of in the coming weeks...and seasons! "
The fashion website says that the Danica Magpantay is in good standing in making a splash at the shows.
"Taking the crown in Ford Models Supermodel of the World Comp 2011, this Filipino girl's in good standing to make a splash at the shows." says Refinery29.
The list also includes the following names:
Theres Alexandersson—After debuting at Stockholm fashion week last year, Theres landed a Calvin Klein exclusive and is sure to be in high demand on the runways.
Julia Saner—Having debuted at Gucci's Spring 2011 show, Saner's surrounded with industry buzz and she's got the makings of the next big thing.
Gertrud Hegelund— A fresh face on IMG's roster, Gertrud got off to a mindblowing start, debuting on Chanel's pre-fall runway in December. We're sure her distinctive look will carry that momentum through to NYFW.
Elsa Sylvan—This blonde beauty is a bit of a veteran, having started in the modeling biz in 2006. After landing a ton of editorial work and skipping NYFW in September, we're hoping her new agency will put her name on everyone's lips this season.
Antonia Wessloh—A kind of Freja 2.0, Antonia's got the look that the industry's hasn't been able to get enough of, plus an intense style that's all her own.
Herieth Paul—Recently landing Diesel's Spring campaign, and having posed for Meisel in Vogue Italia's January issue, all signs are pointing to Herieth making it big.
Tali Lennox (Next)—The undeniably attractive progeny of rocker Annie Lennox, this Brit girl walked Prada, Burberry, and Miu Miu last season, and she's showing no signs of slowing down.
Fei Fei Sun—Huge in the Chinese market, and having walked 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang's Spring runways, we have a feeling this girl's lovely looks are going to champion diversity all across American catwalks this season.
Daphne Groeneveld—This Dutch lass' ethereal features sure make her stand out from the crowd. Just signed with Supreme Management NY this week, she's set to make a splash.
