We've been fans of this Dutchman's sharp features since his first shows last year, when we tapped him as the season's face to watch and we're glad to see the rest of the industry agrees. His countless runway turns have translated into his first campaigns this spring, for Paul & Joe and Neil Barrett, and major editorials in the latest issues of Vogue Hommes International and VMAN.

This edgy skateboarder had an impressive run in Europe last summer just weeks after being scouted, opening for Topman in his runway début. The British brand obviously liked what it saw, booking him for the Winter campaign by Alasdair McLellan. This year, he has already made his mark in Steven Meisel's striking ads for Lanvin.

The engaging German has been a catwalk staple for years, but he really hit his stride last fall, fronting the Topman campaign shot by Alasdair McLellan. He continues his streak this season with a pair of ads for Hugo Boss (eyewear as well as the Hugo line), and a fragrance spot for Costume National.

This Long Island native has the right editorial look but what makes the people love Mr. Faiella is that "X" factor that has proven to be a magnet for all who meet him. Debuting in Balenciaga followed by appearances in Lanvin, Marc by Marc, Kenzo, and 2 shows for Saint Laurent, Marc is a talented designer himself but with the amount of clients clamoring for him, it may be a while before he steps behind the camera.

This ruggedly masculine Argentinian counts Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci among his major supporters, walking his runway twice last year and appearing alongside Carine Roitfeld and Amanda Seyfried in the house's Fall 2013 campaign. So far this year he can already list an appearance in Vogue Paris and a spot in the celebrated model lineup at Dolce & Gabbana's latest show as well as Giampaolo Sgura's current campaign for Just Cavalli in his accomplishments.
