Calvin Klein is one of the most watched shows for casting, each season Maida & Rami and keep us on our toes with their impressive selections and everyone wants to know who will open, who will close, and most importantly – who will snag those coveted exclusives. This season’s list was a mix of 90s classics and brand new faces: supermodels (and exclusives for the show) Kristen McMenamy, Tanga Moreau, Kirsty Hume and Stella Tennant all walked down the runway, but here is a look at some of the faces making their first walk down the Calvin catwalk.

Melissa Tamarijn (New York Model Management)
Dutch beauty Melissa is about as classic as it gets, the 18 year old stunner is already generating some serious editorial buzz.

Gwen Loos (Marilyn)
Gwen made a big splash during couture week but a Calvin exclusive pushes her to the next level. Look for Gwen (and her equally impressive twin sister Donna) to take over Europe.

Julia Nobis (Elite)
Blessed with an outstanding personality and amazing lines, Julia is sure to be a breakout star this season.

    Gwen Loos looks like Christy Turlington.

  4. Emily says:

    No, Gwen does not look like Christy.

    Melissa is great but she is not 18y.o – she is 21yo – but that is a great thing…

  7. emely says:

    gwen has already done 2 seasons of shows. she debuted at balenciaga.

  8. LaTanya_J says:

    Melissa rocks.. truly stunning.. So happy to see her making her debut in Calvin.. she will take europe by storm. 18, 19, 21 ?? who cares. That face is amazing.

  9. Mango says:

    Melissa reminds me of Daria.

  10. Ms says:

    But what about Simona Andrejic??? She was second face at CK..and I think she is the new star in the model sky. She has amezing face,and she’s georgous.

  11. mej says:

    I love that Melissa Tamarijn is 21, is this a problem?

  12. petey says:

    Wow ! i like all 3 but melissa really is great.. those cheek bones

  13. gabe says:

    It’s a bit annoying but very telling that Francisco Costa has consistently only allowed white models (oh wait….there was a black model last season!)to wear his clothes down the runway.

  14. Ed says:

    Calvin Klein does not really embrace diversity when it comes to runway. Only white are most suited to wear CK clothes. One black model this season, and no asian to be seen. Don’t mistake me, I like CK. But as an Asian, I feel underrepresented by this brand. And please don’t criticize me for speaking out.

  15. Dom says:

    gabe, just leave it!
    must every single post on this site turn in to racial discussions and arguments?

  16. sara says:

    I agree with dom. these girls dream of being featured on models.com and the second they are, everyone complains about them because they’re not black.

  17. ris says:

    Liu Wen was in the campaign….

  18. Chloe says:

    Well, fashion industry is quite racist.

  19. charlotte says:

    I really like that Melissa is not a 15 year old High school sophmore or whatnot.. that is REFRESHING.

  20. Carl says:

    I’m really happy that more and more dutch models are getting succesfull in the modelindustry.

  21. betty says:

    Calvin’s main (and only) face for the mainline men’s collection is David Agbodji who is of African descent.

    Y’all may find this hard to believe but there are some models of color out there who also dream to walk for a major label like Calvin Klein. How do you think they feel if season after season, only lily white girls are given this honor and privelege? Cathy Horyn pointed out this sad state of affairs in her review a couple of seasons back.

  23. Patricia says:

    There was a black girl in the collection, There was also a model in her 40’s named Kirsten McCenna and there was Tanga that rocked!!!
