Spotted by scout/stylist Ruben Debuck whilst on a school trip in Ghent, Yana is like a fabulous mix of 80s supermodel Elaine Irwin Mellencamp and the great Raquel Zimmermann. This girl has edge as well as va-va-voom, incredible energy, and a versatility that eludes most. You can count us as fans!

    In the first shoot, she looks like a cool version of Briggite Bardot.
    She looks great but I see her like in Victoria’s Secret or something.

  • I like her more with short black hair.

  • alessafan

    She does look like Raquel!!!

  • she is beautiful like a mix of Blake Lively, Brigitte Bardot and Raquel zimmermann. seems to be very commercial with that long hair, maybe cut it a bit .. but it’s really gorgeous

  • sam

    wow, she’s amazing!

  • unknown

    Totally Raquel Z.

    Good call on the Elaine Irwin/Raquel comparison, but I immediately thought Viviane Orth or Sara Ziff when I saw her.

  • FranceSCO

    Rachel Zimmerman!!!

  • Lala

    For sure Raquel Zimmerman! She has those German features of Raquel… Belgium boarders Germany too haha

  • Yasmin

    I’m definitely not a fan.
    There’s something about her face that bugs me… Maybe the eyes and mouth part; it looks weird… a bit horseish!
    I agree with “Seraphine Angel”: she looks more interesting with black, short hair!

  • Yasmin

    Oh, and I also think the 5th pic is too much… I think she’s a bit too young…and for a newcomer? I mean-come on! Does it always have to be so sexual????

  • kf

    i really liked the short black hair on her

  • Danielle

    i like the first picture. Her Polaroids are intersting, I agree she does look better with the short hair. but overall I think shes beautiful! :)

  • I like HER!!

  • HH

    She is so effortless!

  • Jana

    Joan’s right – she does look a lot like Blake Lively.

  • very pretty.

  • hammy

    How old is she? There is one picture which I think is too erotic for her age!!!!

  • Eva

    She’s 19 and a friend of mine. 2 help you guys out, in real life she looks more like Blake Lively then Raquel Zimmerman. And yes, I agree that the 5th picture is one we all rather hadn’t seen but as a new model you have to find your bounderies and you’ll see that she’s pursuing more of a high fashion career as the “sex”-look doesn’t suits her as well :)
    She’s an amazing person and I’m blessed to have her in my life, all these modelling things are new and exciting so I would love to hear some more comments on these pictures (and on her other pictures at
