The latest Italian Vogue brought back some iconic stars, cemented working girls, and cast major light on rising newbies. One of our favorite youngsters, a girl who has gone largely under the radar compared to Arlenis or Jourdan, is Ubah Hassan. The long-haired beauty hails from Somalia (yes, homeland of Iman as well). She signed with Click Model Management last year, and this year has been making her name in glossies. She scored a spread in Allure’s April issue. But, of course, her biggest claim to fame up is being snapped by Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue. The shot of her rocking a floor-length leopard-print gown alone is worth the exchange rate. —Kendall Herbst
