9. Omahyra Mota (Dominican Republic)


Yet another native of Dominican Republic, Omahyra may be too edgy for some but she has made her punk chic look into a brand all it’s own and translated her modeling accolades (Victoria’s Secret, People’s Most Beautiful list, etc. etc) into a larger profile for herself, making her iconic and instantly recognizable presence felt in music videos and films like X-Men and After the Sunset. All of which begs the question: is DR shaping up to be for the 2010’s what Jamaica has been for some time now; a bottomless feeder school for global stardom?
