12. SASKIA DE BRAUW

Age: 30
Origin: The Netherlands
Career Highlight: She walked the Givenchy menswear show in Paris in January 2011.

Brauw isn’t exactly “new” to modeling. She was discovered at 16, but gave up the fame for her studies in the visual arts. She worked with kids, took up baking, and waitressed before modeling became her focus again. When you're hot, it's never too late.
