German beauty Anna Schilling has become the queen of cute. After debuting at the spring Betsey Johnson show in 2006, she has continued to attract designers with a fresh-faced, clean aesthetic. The brunette walked for Jenni Kayne and Nanette Lepore in the spring and fall 2008 collections, respectively. And earlier this year, she hit the wholesome pages of Anthropologie’s catalogue. Indeed, Schilling’s porcelain skin and doe-eyed demeanor exude an innocence befitting of a girl born in 1989. Arthur Elgort photographed her riding bikes and playing with children in the February Glamour spread. How’s that for adorable? But this latest couture season, we got to see a different, more mature side. Walking for Anne Valérie Hash and Elie Saab, Schilling looked downright drop-dead gorgeous. If she continues to move beyond her girlish image, you can bet booking agents will take notice. —Kendall Herbst
