Meet the New Girl: Wanessa Milhomem

Photo: Next Management

At the ripe age of 13, Brazilian newbie Wanessa Milhomem was discovered in her hometown of São Paulo. Now at 16, Milhomem is signed with Next Management, yes, the same agency that launched Anja Rubik, and most recently, Catherine McNeil. Though she didn't walk any shows this past February, Milhomem did catch the eye of Alexander McQueen when she was cast for his McQ look book. But what put her on our radar was her editorial for next month's i-D, which displays her unique hard-edged yet delicate beauty. And with confirmation from Next that she'll be in New York this September, we can already picture her walking down the runways for Alexander Wang and Erin Fetherston. —James Lim
