Russian-born 22-year-old brunette Natalia Bogdanova has been modeling since she was 16, landing jobs here and there while on the roster at agencies in New York and Los Angeles. Her career picked up steam after she caught the eye of iconic fashion photographer Bruce Weber. "I took her to Bruce's house for lunch about a year ago," says Christian Alexander, director of the Front Management modeling agency that put Bogdanova under contract. "He loved her and shot her for Vogue."

Now living in Miami, Bogdanova has become a hot commodity worldwide, walking the runway for Oscar de la Renta and appearing in print ads for Ralph Lauren and on the cover of Harper's Bazaar and Italian Vogue, among other projects. "I love to shoot on location," she says. "Modeling is great for travel, making new friends and discovering new things every day."

Next on her agenda? Acting. "I'm really into it," Bogdanova says. "Every good model should know how to act. It's important. That's what we are doing — acting with no words."
