Tired of the blonde-haired, blue-eyed carbon copies stalking down the runway? Then take a look at Nastasia Ohl. With a stunning mix of Asian, Eastern European, and Jamaican blood, the newcomer has that chic ethnically ambiguous look that reminds us of a young, curly-haired version of Caroline Ribeiro. Karl Lagerfeld called dibs on the 16-year-old first, when she debuted at the fall 2009 Chanel couture show in Paris. When the Florida native arrived to New York in September, casting directors Maida Gregori Boina and Rami Fernandez placed her on exclusive for the spring Calvin Klein show. In the sea of pale faces that walked, Nastasia’s warm, delicate beauty stood out. In Paris, she booked shows for Rochas and Maison Martin Marigela. Following this carefully selected show season, the rookie shot Benetton’s spring campaign, photographed by Josh Olins. Let’s hope that’s just the beginning for this one.
