Venus Rising - Ophelie Guillermand

France's natural resources get an added boost with modelling's newest sensation Ophélie Guillermand smouldering on the pages of French Numéro's April 2015 issue. The twenty year old Verdun native's spectacular toned physique, tempestuous pout, and distinctive brow line take precedence under the lens of photographic duo Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones. Guillermand sets temperatures soaring as  she poses for the pair in front of a startling red backdrop while cavorting in slinky black ensembles selected by stylist Rebecca Bleynie. The Women Management-repped newcomer is the latest in a recent rash of French beauties to dominate the modelling's inner  sanctum. Guillermand has been a regular runway fixture since emerging at the Fall/Winter 2013 collections and has made significant inroads editorially with bookings for Vogue Italia, Porter, Allure, German Vogue, Heroine, and Interview. With an appearance in the Victoria's Secret Swim 2015 catalogue, Guillermand has proven to be a modelling tour de force combining high fashion industry cred, commercial accessibility, and the kind of classic beauty but with a twist that demands the attention of cosmetics giants.

Shore Thing - Julia Bergshoeff

Dutch model of the moment Julia Bergshoeff brightens up the pages of British Vogue's April 2015 issue with a beachside editorial shot on location in Hawaii by photographer Josh Olins. With fashion editor Clare Richardson in tow, Bergshoeff is beachy keen kitted out in bathing suits, flowing summer dresses, and mini-skirts. Bergshoeff takes a well earned break following a stellar Fall/Winter 2015 show season which saw her eclipsing the field with a mammoth 54 show tally. The seventeen year old's versatile beauty and impressive 181 cm runway perfect proportions were ubiquitous throughout all four major fashion capitals and have landed her on the pages of Holiday, Intermission, Love, The Last Magazine, and the Italian, French, American, and British editions of Vogue in recent months. Prior to the Fall/Winter season, Bergshoeff upped the ante on effortless cool with a shoulder grazing hair cut which has been adopted by her model compatriots as the haircut of the season. With her hazel green eyes, olive complexion, and divine bone structure, Bergshoeff has emerged as a true supermodel contender with recent blue chip Spring/Summer 2015 campaign slots for DSquared2, Coach, Proenza Schouler, Coach, and COS.

On A Roll - Tami Williams

Saint International Jamaica Limited's Tami Williams has officially arrived on the modelling scene on the back of a stellar Fall/Winter 2015 show season and a string of blue chip editorial bookings for American Vogue, W, and T Style Magazine. The sixteen year old Black River native has been carefully groomed by Saint International's Deiwght Peters since being discovered at age twelve via the 2012 Fashion Face of the Caribbean competition. The statuesque 180 cm teen appeared like a bolt out of the blue only a year ago as a semi-exclusive at Alexander Wang during the Fall/Winter 2014 shows displaying an astonishing poise and elegance well beyond her years. With the backing of Elite Model management in New York, Elite Paris, and Why Not Models in Milan, Williams blazed a trail at the recent Fall/Winter 2015 collections with 42 show bookings including Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Jil Sander, Balmain, Valentino, and Alexander McQueen. American Vogue appears to be championing the Jamaican beauty with a stunning debut in two group editorials for its March 2015 issue lensed by Peter Lindbergh and Craig McDean. Williams returns to the pages of the fashion bible's April issue this time with an only girl editorial lensed by McDean appearing in 'Going Long'. Fashion Editor Grace Coddington makes the most of Williams long willowy silhouette and gazelle-like limbs decking her out in fitted sweaters and ankle grazing dresses and skirts. Watch for Williams to steam roll her way through the next few months with a slew of pristine Fall/Winter 2015 editorial and campaign slots.

Body of Work - Chiharu Okunugi

Japanese top model Chiharu Okunugi places her body at full stretch for photographer Hans Feurer in an editorial for French Numéro's April 2015 issue. 'Body Conscious' showcases another side to the elegant beauty's modelling repertoire as she poses poolside in athletic and swimsuit attire styled by Spela Lenarcic. Feurer hones his lens on Okunugi's svelte 177 cm silhouette as contorts her body while stretching, frolicking, and lounging at an outdoor pool. The twenty-two year old New York Model Management-repped ingenue has been one of IMA's favourite faces since her captivating debut as an exclusive for Prada at the Spring/Summer 2013 collections. The Tokyo native has since walked for virtually every blue chip fashion house and has appeared in editorials for a diverse array of publications including W, CR Fashion Book, Dansk, Crash, Pop, i-D, Love, and the Japanese, Chinese and Italian editions of Vogue. Okunugi's classic beauty and commercial appeal has landed her front centre in campaigns for Stella McCartney, Chanel, Céline, Schiatzy Chen, and Uniqlo. With her ongoing high fashion relevance, versatility, and natural charisma, IMA predict a major cosmetics contract or a stint on Victoria's Secret's Fashion Show on the horizon in 2015.
