contemporary serif w/ nice italics

Hey yo,
I'm looking for some contemporary serif typefaces with interesting italics to be used for pullquotes and headers in a women's magazine.

The sort of thing I'm looking for:
(straight from typophile's very own Stefan Hattenbach!)

Faces like Kursivschrift are right up the same alley as well, if not perhaps a bit overused.

Any thoughts you guys might have on this would be greatly appreciated.

I admit to being a little bit behind the times, but Emigre's Eidetic seems to stick out as fitting the bill.

Good call. Plus I already own Eidetic!

How about Adobe Warnock Pro?

Very flexible face. All the benefits of a PRO font, SC, OSF, etc.

Great suggestion. I have never seen that face before. I love it.
