The winners of the global online casting competition held by Italian fashion giant Benetton have been announced.

From 65,000 entrants, 20 new faces of the brand have been chosen, including two UK entrants Soraya Khalil-Ibrahiym and Francis Lane.

The news came as Benetton announced that profits in 2009 fell to E122m (£109.6m) from E155m (£139.2m) the year before, while sales fell 3.7% across the year to E2.05bn (£1.84.1bn). It also said that chief executive Gerolamo Caccia Dominioni will leave after three years at the helm.
