Prada exclusives go from new faces to top models in a heartbeat. That's what happened to Ali Stephens and Suvi Koponen, and now Munich native Lenz von Johnston joins their ranks. The 21-year-old was discovered two years ago by makeup artist Mo May while on a movie set. At her insistence he gave modeling a shot, and Cento Scouting snapped him up immediately. Just a year later, Miuccia put an exclusive on the pouty teen for her fall 2008 runway show. Then Calvin picked him up as their face for fall 2008. We even picked his V spread, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, as one of the best editorials in November. But what we love most about this ice-hockey fan is his love for Klaus Kinski. Who could guess?
