a soprano, a bass, and a tenĂ³rio

Spring Summer 2007's jaws dropped at the emergence of Supreme's beyond textbook-pretty girls: Alana Zimmer, Johanna Stickland, Anna Barsukova, Cecilia Mendez, Daiane Conterato, Hanne Gaby Odiele and Suvi Koponen all logged serious runway mileage, in addition to Behati Prinsloo and Rachel Alexander's semi-established client base.

Paul Rowland definitely scouts all corners of the globe, from staple modeling breeding grounds Canada, Russia, and Brazil to new hotspots like Argentina, Belgium, and Finland. What intrigues me with Supreme's mannequins is that they always have something incredibly off with their faces, but it's that genius kind of aberration that paves the smoothest paths to all the right runways.

With all my raving, Supreme is not where I found the most captivating face as of late. It's very close, though. Supreme's sister agency, Women, represents Brazilian Bruna TenĂ³rio. Basing from her polas, I would've pegged her as a Supreme girl, projecting a very earthy feel with her relaxed posing and geek-chic glasses. She walked all the major cities and for top designers, from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Zac Posen.

So cool. She looks like she might be part Asian, don't you think?
