I Remain, You Desire, 2010
We’ve been saying it since last December: model Lindsey Wixson (the one with the plumped-up pout that looks like this) is one to watch. Her already impressive modeling resume just got another boost—she can now add muse to photographer Gabrielle Revere to her list of accomplishments, whose new exhibit I Remain, You Desire at Sotheby’s features portraits of Wixson looking something like a teenage dream.

We posted this little tidbit yesterday letting you know about the success of one of our Next Faces models. Well, turns out a whole host of them are climbing the charts steadily, with high profile campaigns, star making turns on the runway and all around buzz. We round up some of these success stories to let you know where our well-made predictions are now.

Way back in December, CITY let you in our predictions for the new faces of modeling in 2010. One such example was the now 21-year-old Argentinian Tati Cotliar, the gangly brunette who has since opened Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 runway show and starred in Vivienne Westwood’s Spring campaign. We’re not surprised: the girl can go from edgy to pretty in the blink of an eye. Now, Fashionista.com has taken notice with a new interview with the ingenue, who has risen in the ranks to #44 on Models.com. Just remember: you heard it here first.

Kate, Karlie, Kim. Who were they before they were supermodels? Just girls from the UK, Midwest and Netherlands, respectively. The fashion world is famous for plucking girls from average stations at tender ages and occasionally skyrocketing them to fame. Valentina Vos, a young photographer, has made it her mission to capture the original state of 25 recently scouted models. According to Vos, the goal of her new book, One Seventy Four (out in June and available for pre-order on her site), is to capture the girl—not the model. While we can’t say we know that many 15 year olds who exude the same level of hipster cool as many of her subjects, glimpses of innocence and vulnerability are found through goofy poses and self-conscious slouches. And there’s plenty of beauty to go around, too. For a healthy selection of some of our favorite shots, read on.

To people who say supermodels don’t exist anymore, we say take a look at Lacee Swan’s T-shirts. Model worship is alive and well, and it’s in the form of a plain white tee with a bare-bones sketch and a one-word name. That’s all true fashion aficionados need to identify the shirt’s subjects—the long-legged and sometimes gap-toothed amazons who rule today’s catwalks and ad campaigns.

Flame-haired catwalker Karen Elson has decided to try a new hat on: flame-haired bluesy chanteuse. At first glance, this may appear to include more than a dash of nepotism: Elson is, after all, the wife of rocker Jack Black. But one peek at her new video for “The Ghost Who Walks” (after the jump) and you’ll know this is for real. The British transport, now living in Nashville, sure can sing. With her album coming out May 25, we give you a brief history of models in music to tide you over till you can hear more of Elson’s husky vocals.
