Folio's Ryan Martel
It seems as though Nelson Simoneau may have found his muse in the form of Ryan Martel.

The Montréal photographer and Folio model have been teaming up frequently lately, including a recent spread in Kill Magazine, an upcoming issue of Elle Canada and the current issue of Pure.

Martel, as we told you a few weeks ago is also the face of Rudsak - as seen in the images below.

Proof that braces are worth the investment strolled into the Giovanni office in Toronto this afternoon.

Angela Chamberlain calls Ottawa's CoverModels home, but is in Toronto this week displaying her perfectly straight teeth, tight abs (the result, she says, of nightly cruches) and spirited personality.

These digitals of the 5'10", 17-year-old new face were taken Monday afternoon.

From just a few snapshots Max Blades' international career is off to a flying start.

The 21-year-old from Victoria sent his digitals to Edge Models' Barbara Pilling, who then wisely forwarded them along to agencies south of the border.

The result was placement with Ford in New York, and L.A. Models, where he will start his development on Sunset Boulevard.

A few digitals and the right agent .. sometimes that's all it takes. Having a really cool name like "Max Blades" can't hurt either.

Folio's Reid
RW&:CO has released its fall collection, featuring the very recognizable (and entirely beautiful) face of Reid.

The Calgary model makes her debut for the Canadian retailer, but Folio booker Alexandre de Bellefeuille suggests there may be more highly visible campaigns to follow...

Genevieve Pantano
Giovanni's Genevieve Pantano
After hanging her chapeau in Montréal for a while, Genevieve Pantano has returned to Toronto for the next few months.

The Giovanni model had been studying in La Belle Province, but has shifted her courseload back to the Ontario capital now, where she grew up.

Following her last academic term, Pantano also spent a couple months modelling in Asia.

Among her numerous bookings in Québec were La Vie En Rose's print and in-store lingerie campaigns and Lady Dutch.

Pantano's latest snapshots, taken Tuesday, can be seen on the Giovanni website blog.

'Tis the season for new websites, as both Nathalie in Paris and Marilyn in New York have recently renewed their online storefronts.

In Canada meanwhile, it's Donat who is making the most of the whole interweb phenomenon the kids are all talking about.

Just launced last week, the Montréal photographer's new cyber-presence can be found at

Charlotte Le Bon continues her upward momentum through the modelling ranks, booking Escada's Incredible Me print and television campaigns.

Good timing for the Folio model, who will be relocating to Paris in the autumn.

Judith Bedard
Giovanni's Judith Bedard
You may have noticed that Judith Bedard has been steadily rising in the ranks of Canada's Top Models.

Fact is, the Giovanni model has been booking some pretty serious campaigns lately, including Yohji Yamamoto, Catherine Malandrino and Chantal Thomass' lingerie.

Past work includes tv spots for Diesel Fragrance and Louis Vuitton, and H&M's worldwide print and in-store campaign last winter.

Major mainstream visibility is now on the horizon, with the release of Bedard's new Guess? by Marciano campaign, photographed by Matthias Vriens.

Score a major Marcelle coup for Folio.

The office on rue de la Commune ouest pulled off a major booking, getting Marie-Ève Nadeau again as the skin care line's face.

Add to that the always stunning Lorca Moore as the New Age Woman, and Christine Doyon for Hydra-C... and you're still not done.

Folio's (seriously talented!) Jenn Finkelstein styled the campaign, while Hair & Makeup artist Geneviéve Lenneville added her touches.

Très impressionnant !

Ali Harvey
Next's Ali Harvey
This... is... Ali. Ali Harvey, to be precise. Modelresource expects you will be hearing a lot more from her in the months and years to follow.

Just five weeks into the career and she has already shot for Elle, Infamous and Glow.

Discovered, not surprisingly, by Next's Corey Mann, the 5'9½ brunette will be tackling New York this fall.

Giovanni's 5'11" Nel
Introducing Nel.

This 5'11" new face hangs her heels at Giovanni in Toronto and Montréal, but calls Nova Scotia home.

A product of the Chantale Nadeau (academy? machine?), this brunette with hypnotic blue eyes and impossibly long legs will be in Toronto until the 24th.

Expect to be seeing a lot more from Ryan Martel in the coming months.

The Folio model is appearing in the October and November issues of Elle, as well as the coming issues of Pure and Z!NK, and the current issue of Lush.

The images below are from the new Matt & Natt campaign, and a quick walk past a Rudsak storefront will find her there too.
