Each week, we take the time to highlight one of our favorite emerging models. Previously, we profiled Nike Fortmann and this week we're turning our attention to Eugenia Hannover. The 19-year-old Gottingen native has a natural elegance and poise that's likely to have every editor, stylist and designer taking note and we expect to see a lot more of her in the not-too-distant future. We caught with her to talk about her career so far, her passion for modeling, and her plans for the future.
