Meet the New Girl: Eniko Mihalik

Hungary may be the new Russia as far as producing some of the world’s most exquisite-looking people goes. One of our new favorites, Eniko Mihalik, and last year’s Prada runway opener, Adina Forizs, both hail from Hungary, but Eniko is undeniably the girl of the moment. She debuted in 2006 with Karl Lagerfeld’s ultimate blessing when she walked in his Chanel couture show in Paris. Though she didn’t quite catch on with other casting directors immediately after that, her patience is about to pay off big time. This past June, she walked with the best for Christian Dior and Prada’s resort shows. Then photogs Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (who regularly work with Daria Werbowy and Natasha Poly) picked up Eniko for Gucci’s fall ad campaign. And that’s just the beginning — we hear she’s featured in next month’s French Vogue and just about every other blue-chip magazine. So she shouldn’t be too hard to miss from now on. —James Lim
