Brian Atwood's - ORGY

The orgy scenes of Brian Atwood's new fall campaign are getting a lot of attention, but beyond their furtive blue glow lies an array of products on the e-store that are sure to put you in the mood. The site—launched yesterday in advance of the brand's Madison Ave store later this month—carries the largest selection of Brian Atwood offerings in the world, from shoes and bags to online exclusives and fashion films. One such film, The Sex Is In the Heel, shows Candice Swanepoel in lace-up thigh highs, making out with a wall of monitors projecting what appears to be herself in a group setting. Meta-hot!

Girls You're Likely to See a Lot of This Fashion Month

As another season (and summer) comes to a close, a whole new crop of girls is getting into their skinnies/stilettos casting uniform. These new wunderkinds will be on the runway in a matter of days, as New York Fashion Week gets underway, followed by London, Milan, and Paris. The exclusives will flow—from the likes of Calvin Klein, Prada, Givenchy, and Balenciaga—as well as the all-important opening and closing looks. Here are a few models likely to dominate the catwalk...

Anniek Kortleve

As fresh a face as you can ask for, the Netherlands native rose to the top of the pack this season with her Balenciaga runway exclusive, then nabbing the ad campaign and catching the eye of none other than Steven Meisel, who showcased her in Italian Vogue's August issue. We're expecting to see a lot of her strawberry blonde tresses this month. We hope she's honed her runway skills since the Balenciaga catwalk.

Magda Laguinge

Originally from Argentina, Magda's old-world elegance made her a natural choice for Louis Vuitton's fall 2012 campaign. Since then, she's made appearances in both Chinese and British editions of Vogue, not to mention holding her own in W's collections story with industry vets Meghan Collison and Zuzanna Bijoch. On top of that, Carine Roitfeld teased her appearance in her highly anticipated CR Fashion Week. Seal of approval: confirmed.

Othilia Simon

The French beauty has taken her spot this season as the go-to girl for insouciant cool. Kudos to stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé for tapping into Othilia's striking bone structure, showcasing her at her finest in not one but three editorials for W, lensed by Craig McDean. With someone like that in her corner, Simon isn't going anywhere.

Elena Bartels

Speaking of stylists, German model Elena Bartels also managed to become a favorite of them. Loved by Karl Templer, her wispy and ethereal features earned her the Italian Vogue July 2012 cover and a stunning shoot in Interview's August issue shot by Mikael Jansson. Something tells us this girl has staying power.

Mariane Fassarella

She may still be a relative unknown, but Brazilian babe Mariane Fassarella has piqued our interest. After debuting as a Givenchy exclusive last season, her cerebral gaze and Kate Moss resemblance have booked her the fall 2012 Love Moschino and Urban Outfitters campaigns. Watch for her this catwalk cycle. Anyone who's good enough for Tisci isn't going to stay hidden for long.
