Next's Kim Cloutier in Flare
Another very recognizable name appearing in latest Flare is Kim Cloutier, who became well known beyond just the fashion world when she appeared in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

An indication of what that kind of exposure a model gets from an appearance in SI Swimsuit: "Kim Cloutier" is the fourth most frequently searched phrase that has brought people to Modelresource in 2009.

Cloutier, you will recall, was overwhelmingly selected as the reader's favourite in Sports Illustrated's own online poll.

The Next model was photographed for Flare by Max Abadian (

Makeup was applied by Hung Vanngo, who recently updated his website ( to show more of his increasingly impressive body of work.

Sutherland's Addison Gill in Flare
The July issue of Flare is now out, and in a somewhat remarkable departure from past issues, the models are credited in the editorials.

And really, why not? When you book the likes of Addison Gill - a much loved commodity in international fashion - you know the images are going to be posted and re-posted on webpages worldwide.

The Sutherland model looks outstanding in this nine page spread by Chris Nicholls (

Way to go, Flare!

Edmonton's Mat Gordon
Contributing Editor Matthew Lyn ( has been researching the Top Canadian Male Models over the past few months as part of a new Modelresource focus on the men's side of the industry.

His assignment complete (for now) means we can start rolling out the results, starting with the top five.

Testimony to the healthy Western Canadian lifestyle, each of the first five calls the prairies or the mountains home.

We'll be unveiling the other 20 throughout the week.

Next new face Nicole
Scouting someone is great, but you have to love the days when girls like this find you.

Meet Nicole, a fresh-faced 17-year-old from Nova Scotia who applied to Next online.

The 5'9" blue-eyed, blonde - not surprisingly - met with favourable response.

She then followed up by travelling to Montréal, where these digitals were taken.

Andii's back!

The London, Ontario native has been absent from Toronto for the past few years, after shooting Fashion, Elm Street's The Look, Flare, FQ, Glow, Highrise and LOULOU in her first few months.

Dental Hygiene school took precedence over modelling then, but with her formal studies near completion the Next model is now living in Toronto and more stunning than ever.

The images below - with NAM's lovely Anna Shevchenko - are part of a recent story by Toronto photographer Jason Wills (

Elmer Olsen's Justine Boomer
Since March's LG Fashion Week, the one event people have continued to talk about is the Women X Women exhibit of female fashion photographers.

Today, Modelresource is happy to share the new website of one of the exhibiting emerging artists.

Karen Roze ( is a recent graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, and is based in Toronto.

Pictured here are images of Elmer Olsen's Justine Boomer (left) and Elise Hélène Gatschene (below).

W Models's Anna Feller
Although we haven't seen Anna Feller's remarkably beautiful face around Toronto since November, she's still very much on Modelresource's radar.

W Models' 5'10½ blonde wisely retreated to her hometown of Vancouver before the unreasonably cold winter decended on Southern Ontario, but tells Modelresource she's ready to start modelling full time again.

These images come courtesy of the very talented Mr. Greg Swales (

Folio's Jamie VanDyke

Not a new face, in the traditional sense, but new to Montréal nonetheless, is 5'9" Jamie VanDyke.

The strikingly beautiful 22-year-old recently moved to La Belle Province from Southern California.

Chantale Nadeau's Jordan
Here, your first look at the latest Chantale Nadeau model search winners.

Nadeau, as you likely know, has an impeccable record for launching her winners into places of prominence.

Top honours this season went to 18-year-old Jordan - a 5'10" University of Toronto student who bears a striking resemblance to Nadeau herself in earlier days.

Runner-up is 5'10", 21-year-old Iryna.

Expect to see more images of each girl - as well as addtional finalists - next week on

CoverModels' Anjela Chamberlain
Modelresource is shining a spotlight on the Nation's Capital today, with a market profile penned by Christopher Massardo featured on our Ottawa Agency Listings.

As you will read, one of the three agencies in profile - CoverModels - is getting a big makeover.

After seven years operating from Viresh Pujara's home, the agency is expanding into a 1,400-square-foot, double studio space, working with models, photography, hair, makeup, editing, graphic artistry all in one location.

Renos are still in the works, so we don't have the new address for you yet, but below are some sneak peaks at the new space.

I had the opportunity to be in Montréal in December for Next's annual Holiday party.

And there, in a room filled with gorgeous Next models, was Renée Lacombe... in a word, breathtaking.

The native of Québec City has a long history working with Richard Bernardin, including three recent shoots now in circulation.

Pictured below are recent images from the FEMME by Sandra Angelozzi Spring/Summer 2009 campaign, S Magazine (Copenhagen) editorial, and Kill Magazine (Montréal) editorial.

Modelresource, as you likely know, is a big fan of Bernardin's work, and today we're loving his newly relaunched website,

Folio's Ryan Martel
It would be nearly impossible, I believe, to be living in Québec, and not have seen Ryan Martel's face.

The Folio model - who turned 16 only three months ago - has appeared in Montréal-based fashion magazines more than any other model I can think of in the past two years, often showing up in two or more publications simultaneously.

Currently it's Elle Québec, in a 14-page summer story shot by Leda & St-Jacques (; and Pure, shot by Jean-Claude Lussier (, featuring fellow Folio model Anaïs Pouliot.

Ruby Brown finds herself on the cover of the newest Clin d'Oeil.

The Montage model has worked internationally since she was 14, appearing in magazines like Marie Claire, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Biba and Cosmopolitan, as well as ads for L'Oréal and Christian Dior.

After several years based primarily in Europe, the 5'8½" blonde is back in North America, working between New York and Montréal.
