Name any major fall 2010 show and odds are Melissa Tammerijn was featured on its runway. The Dutch newcomer was one of this season’s obvious hits. Starting with a Calvin Klein exclusive in New York to walking Fendi, Prada, Balenciaga, and Chanel, designers clamored to get a piece. And we don’t blame them. Just look at that stunningly cinematic face, which resembles Italian actress Monica Vitti. She’s already appeared in editorials for Bon, 10 magazine, and Italian Vogue. And the 19-year-old has the upcoming fall campaigns to really put her a cut above the crowded pack.
