Like a fashion trend, the next 'it' models come and go in waves. Whilst the Brazilians (namely featuring Gisele Bundchen, Ana Claudia Michels, Isabelli Fontana and co.) changed our worlds, reigning supreme in the early noughties and making every girl lust after their 34-24-34 vital statistics and sun-kissed skin, we have since seen the rise of the Russians, the Belgians and most recently the Dutch. Lara Stone, Patricia Van Der Vliet, and Lisanne de Jong are definitely having a moment, with Lisanne featuring as one of the sought after girls for the AW10 shows.
But it would appear that there is a new breed of models creeping onto the scene, set to rock the runways next season. The Argentinians are fairer than their Brazilian neighbours but have a whole lotta bone structure and are leaner and less athletic than the Dutch. Carla Gebhart, in her first European season secured herself Richard Nicoll, Burberry, Christopher Kane, Pringle, Jonathan Saunders, Gucci, Prada, Jil Sander, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten including many more (phew!).
Here's Carla and the other girls to watch over the coming season...
