Ten Outstanding New Faces to Watch at Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week


Models that earn as much name recognition as Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss don't come around every season, or even once a year. With New York Fashion Week officially kicking off spring 2012 fashion month next week, a new cast of models will be dreaming of ad campaigns and Vogue editorials when the shows end, but who has a shot at actually getting there? Arizona-native Kelly Mittendorf was booked in Prada's fall 2011 campaign before she ever walked a show, then appeared in Italian Vogue. Dominican beauty Marihenny Rivera's bookings for the Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton resort shows will surely serve her well when she meets with Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera this week. And Wilhelmina's Sojourner Morrell's androgynous look and Über-cool sense of style make her just the kind of girl you might see on a Marc Jacobs or Proenza Schouler runway. Get to know these faces, and seven other rising stars, in the slideshow ahead.
