Irina Kulikova - the new 'It' model

Ok, so I know that the news of a particularly popular new model may not be exactly jaw-droppingly exciting but you've got to love the story of how this one was discovered. Grabbing a bite to eat last summer in a restaurant in Moscow, Liv Tyler suddenly walked over the table Kulikova was sharing with her mum, and asked if she was a model! How come nothing like that would happen to me when stuffing my face at Pizza Hut, eh?!

She's already made a splash at the F/W 2007-8 shows having walked for Prada, Chanel, Chloe and YSL amongst others, and if you don't recognise her yet, perhaps you will once you're used to seeing her face in campaigns by Prada, Jil Sander, Marc Jacobs and Pringle of Scotland. Busy girl, then!According to Vogue.co.uk, Storm Models founder Sarah Doukas is also a fan of Ms Kulikova, recently commenting that 'the waif is no longer in vogue' and that 'fashion is heralding the return of the 'woman'. Personally I find this completely confusing - while Kulikova may be seen as perfect model material, as far as I can see she's as waif-like as they come!

What do you think of Irina's look?
