News/Updates: Honorable Mentions Pt II

Alvaro Barbera @ Carmen Duran Management / 6’1″ / Spanish
Alvaro from Valencia is brand new, but has already worked for local magazines. When not spending time with his cat, hanging out in the local fields with friends or watching terror movies, Alvaro passes the time by just being incredibly handsome.

Henrique Holsbach @ Francina Models / 6’0″ / Brazilian
Brazil-born, Barcelona-based Henrique is a young man with great potential. Great eyes and that boyish Brazilian charm – who can resist?

James Toller @ Chosen Management / 6’1″ / American
Southern boy James has both face and body. Discovered at AMTC, he’s currently only placed in Hong Kong but we won’t be surprised when he surfaces in the Europe and US markets.

Kate Ciesielska @ mandpmodels / 5’10.5″ / Polish
A girl who has captured attention of London’s avant magazines and has walked for Jean Pierre Braganza, Kate is still at school but more than ready for the upcoming season – she’s even learning Italian!

Lise Aanes @ Heartbreak Management / 5’9″ / Norwegian
Lise got into modeling through her passion for theatre and acting. Placed with Elite Milan, she has shot the Max&Co lookbook with Matteo Montanari and is, in our opinion, the fabulously high fashion version of Amelie Poulain.

Nasyta Tarasova @ Nagorny Models / 5’9.5″ / Belarussian
Wonderfully weird Nastya is from Hrodna, Belarus. Discovered in a bookstore, this art history buff is also into Edith Piaf, Degas and Modigliani – perfection!

Rebecca Olsen @ Base Model Agency / 5’10” / Swedish
This Stockholm native was discovered in Cape Town, South Africa, where her parents live and work. Now back in Sweden for school, Rebecca is placed with IMG Worldwide and will start modeling full time from June.

Sonja Wohlmuth @ Model Management Hamburg / 5’11” / German
The winner of the German ELLE Model Contest 2011, Sonja has already been shot by Joshua Jordan for the magazine. This classic beauty has also walked for Escada and Hugo Boss, and has signed with Elite in Paris and NY. Sonja has also had interest from big commercial clients – a future money girl?

Tamara Caravaca @ Carmen Duran Management / 5’10.5″ / Spanish
Already conquering the local market, having been voted by a top Spanish fashion magazine as the country’s best new model, Tamara’s next move is to head to NYC, where she is placed with Muse.

Tobias Starke @ Sharp Scouting / 6’1″ / German
Tobias was discovered by photographer Juliane Spaete. He’s so far shot for INDIE magazine, but with incredible green/grey eyes and that innate Berliner cool, this boy has massive editorial potential.

  • Lise is fantastic… Rebecca’s middle image is stunning, great models here

    Nasyta Tarasova they must’ve gotten her name wrong. It should be Jagaciak…she’s a “JAC” – I would believe them being sisters straight away, espec. the first picture made me think of JAC the minute I saw it.

  • jean

  • fashion_fiend

    I love how Alvaro says when he’s not spending time with his cat. very cute
    Henrique & Nastya are amazing to the eyes

  • Burton

    NASTYA !!!!!!!!!!!

  • I would love to see the other sides to Nastya’s face but her angles are magnetic!


  • Nastya is gorgeous! Exactly that sophisticated and high-strung girl you want on your set!

  • Need to explain the use of the word “high-strung”: I meant it in the way of highly sensitive, and high level of performance.

    I see interesting performers as high strung in comparison to regular people, just like you’d compare a noble race horse to a cart horse.

    So, next time I’ll try to be less poetic with my comments.
