    There’s been a lot of major modeling news in the past week, starting with the models selected to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show last Wednesday and ending with the big reveal of Mango’s newest campaign star, Daria Werbowy. We get the feeling new crop of supermodels is here and is ready to dominate, and here’s why.We’re really hung up on Werbowy’s new role for Mango because she--a model with so much respect in the industry and a Lancome contract to her name--replaces a string of major, international celebrities as the face of the brand: Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, and Scarlett Johansson. Werbowy’s appointment to be the face of Mango paves the way for her to transcend the insider-cool status she’s had for a decade, and get the supermodel status she deserves. Of course you might recognize Werbowy from the Isabel Marant pour H&M ads she starred in with models Andreea Diaconu and Sam Rollinson, two fresh faces who have already appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris and in Balenciaga ads, respectively. All of these models are renown in the fashion world, but getting the cred from H&M is only going to help make them household names. Speaking of girls on the rise, we can’t forget about Lindsey Wixson, the Kansas girl who most recently signed a cosmetics contract with Yves Saint Laurent, a brand whose other models include fronted by Jessica Chastain and Courtney Love. On the Victoria’s Secret runway, too, a group of models proved they’ve got the goods to become supermodels--we’re looking at you, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Sui He, and Malaika Firth. Click through the gallery to meet the models about to become supers and memorize their names now. Then when they’re mega-famous you can say you knew them when...
