If you've had a chance to pick up the September issue of Flare you'll likely have seen a beauty story by Chris Nicholls (, featuring two girls Modelresource has been telling you about from the very start of their respective careers.

Amanda Nimmo has been on our radar since CoverModels introduced her to us in September 2009, while Jenna Earle was the winner of the Modelresource-sponsored Next Face of Edmonton search just over a year ago.

The feature is called "The New Wave," which incidentally is also the theme of the current Dress to Kill, featuring Next's 5'11" brunette on the cover.

Alberta's Earle also has the fashion editorial "Dandy Darling" in September's Flare, photographed by Andrew Soule.

Congratulations to Tara Lanoway, who has always been one of my favourite people to deal with, and is undoubtedly one of the best men's bookers (if not the best) in Canada.

Late last week Elmer Olsen's blog posted that after nine years managing many of this country's top male models, the Winnipeg native is off to New York, where she will be on the men's board at Wilhelmina.

The former photographer gave Modelresource's Matthew Lyn her own take on The Men's Industry two years ago, in a very insightful Q&A.

Modelresource wishes Tara all the best in her new position.

A few months ago Sutherland Models held a large, well-publicized model search in Toronto that concluded with a 15-year-old named Anna Stephenson as its victor.

If it ended there, obviously, you wouldn't be reading about it here.

According to Agency Director Carole Reynolds -- who scouted the Grade 9 student near her own daughter's school -- the response to the 5'10 brunette has been "incredible" from clients and agencies around the world. "She just got her braces off last week and is planning a trip to New York as part of her prize package to decide which top agency to sign with."

We'll keep you updated.
