Fashion’s new “IT” girl Alla Kostromicheva

I think we are going to have to take an opinion poll on this one, because I’m not seeing it, according to’s  “the cut :

Alla Kostromicheva came bolting out of the gate this past fashion week. By the end of the fall 2009 season, the 22-year-old Ukrainian had walked 22 shows in New York, Milan, and Paris, from Calvin Klein to Jil Sander to Balenciaga, making her one of the most sought-after girls of the season. Kostromicheva got her start just a year ago when she signed with Ford Models in New York, but has since left the agency to sign with Women Direct this year.

She made her runway debut on the Collette Dinnigan catwalk in March 2008, and slowly started to build up her show list, walking for Christian Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Maison Martin Margiela, and Yves Saint Laurent during the spring shows last October. But the five-foot-eleven beauty didn’t show her star potential until this last season when both Alexander McQueen and Stefano Pilati of Yves Saint Laurent selected her to open their shows. And since then she has landed the cover of Tokion in March, in editorials in Plastique and 10 Magazine, and it’s rumored that she was in fittings for a shoot with Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue. With that kind of casting, we’re sure to be seeing a lot more of Alla to come.

Here are some her her stats:

Nationality: Ukrainian
Birthday: 1986
Born In: Ukraine
Agencies: Women
Known For: Lips, Hair
Status: Newcomer
Friends: Angelika Kocheva
