German 20-year-old Katrin Thormann managed to snag the cover of next month's Dazed & Confused without having walked a single runway show. Thormann was discovered last year when she caught the eye of an agent during a visit to Berlin. In no time she signed with Women Management in Milan, and just this month she made her runway debut at the Strenesse Blue show at Berlin Fashion Week. But we're sure her flaxen hair and deep-set eyes (very Kirsten Owen, no?) will be pop up in many glossies and runway shows to come. —James Lim
