Last week Modelresource shared some of Ali Harvey's editorial from Elle Canada.

Harvey, you may know, is a discovery of Next Canada scout Corey Mann, who without question has one of the best eyes in Canada.

Another of his discoveries is one of Modelresource's favourite models - Kelsey Van Mook - who currently appears in Volt Magazine (U.K.).

Inge de Jong can also credit Mr. Mann with her recent good fortune. In addition to the Paris test shots shown below, she was also one of the six finalists in the V A Model search Modelresource told you about yesterday.

Other recent developments at Next include Crista Cober in Noise (shot by moo), and Cailin Hill in October's Flare, shot by Ishi.

That's two-in-a-row for Ontario.

V Magazine and Supreme Models have chosen this year's winner of their model search, and it's Toronto's Addison Gill.

Modelresource first told you about the 16-year-old Chantale Nadeau/Sutherland model in a New Face Alert three weeks ago.

Gill is the second straight winner from Ontario, following Muskoka's Amanda Laine; the Elmer Olsen model has had a sensational year since claiming the inaugural V A Model title.

Nadeau's Jacquie Campeau (Giovanni) was also among the six young models that travelled to New York this week for the finals of the prestigious competition.

Other Nadeau news this week includes Shiya Zhao (Sutherland) and Wei Guo (Giovanni) in the latest Flare; and Sydney Edmonds (Sutherland) and Chelsea Coyle (Giovanni) in Canadian Teen Magazine.

As much as Modelresource loves to see Canadian models working abroad, a big part of the reason this site started in the first place was to help Canadians understand the value of the market at home.

Next in Montréal shared some of their recent hometown bookings, including the ever-enchanting Kim Cloutier for the Simon's lingerie line Miiyu.

Below are images of Cathy for Reitmans and Simon Chang, new face Dana for Brown's, Vanessa for Rush, and Alisa for Mackage.

You may have already seen the new cover of Glow, featuring Elyse Saunders.

If not, it's okay to linger over the image on the left a bit longer; that face is truly remarkable.

Since going brunette and taking a trip to Greece, the editorial has been piling up for the Ford model.

Check below for a selection of the newest additions to the portfolio of one of Modelresource's favourites.

NAM's Jen & Jackie

I think of all Matthew Lyn's stories, his recent "No Escape," featuring NAM twins Jackie and Jen might be my favourite.

The Toronto photographer relaunched his website late last week, with a lot of new content.

Have a look!

When Modelresource was in Montréal last month, I got to spend a lot of time with Brian Ypperciel, which was not only a lot of fun, but also incredibly useful for identifying those Québec models with whom I was less familiar.

The Montréal-based photographer re-launched his website ( last week, adding a sleek new online presence to his impressive body of work.

Ypperciel's work is regularly featured in Z!NK, Clin d'Oeil and numerous other publications, while his base of advertising clients is constantly expanding.

In other words, he's a good one to keep track of.
