This is a girl you're going to want to keep track of.

Laurence started when she was 14 with Richard's in Vancouver, and three years later is drawing worldwide attention.

A native of Halfmoon Bay, on B.C.'s Sunshine Coast, the 5'10" redhead spent the last two summers in New York building her book, and this year stuck around to do shows (Mackage, Elie Tahari, Naaem Khan, Leifsdottir...).

Having accelerated her curriculum, Laurence is already done high school and intends on seeing where modelling will take her, with Paris or New York the likely January destination.

These images come from the latest Belgian edition of Elle.

You likely remember when Chantale Nadeau's Chelsea Coyle wrote about her experiences jetting around Germany this summer.

The 5'10" blonde (with Sutherland in Toronto and Folio in Montréal) is in Singapore now, where high res scans of editorial she shot in Deutschland are finding their way to her.

The attached cover is (as you can surely see) from Das Blättchen, which if Babelfish is to be believed, translates into something akin to "The Membrane."

Coyle, of course, is Modelresource's former Editorial Assistant and will be returning to write our Through The Lens feature in the not too distant future.

The first look Modelresource readers got at Sydney Edmonds was is March of 2008, when she appeared at Toronto's fashion week for the first time.

I had only come to know her weeks before, when she connected with Chantale Nadeau and was subsequently signed to Sutherand Models.

We've been following her ever since, reporting on much of what the Toronto model has been doing over the past couple of years.

Editorials have been published and runways in New York and Europe have been walked, but only now am I really convinced her time has come.

The 5'11" blue-eyed brunette is shooting Teen Vogue today, as tear sheets starting rolling in from France.

Turkish Vogue, French Elle, Spanish Cosmo, Dirrty Glam and Dealer Deluxe (all booked though Marilyn in Paris) all happened in the last month, and much more is on the horizon.

I love when persistence pays off!

Last time we checked in on her, Ottawa's Amanda was being featured in the first printed issue of Plaid Magazine.

In fact, she was doing much more than that.

The blue-eyed blonde - while still in high school - has been busy in Toronto and Montréal (Stoneridge by Aldo, Garage...), while jetting off to the Golden State a couple times to shoot for Dynamite.

The image below comes is the result of a September trip to L.A., and just two days ago the 5'10" CoverModels new face flew again to Califoria (this time to San Francisco) for Dynamite's next campaign.

Modelresource announced in September the opening of Next's Vancouver office, and the subsequent signing of Anna Feller, who was back in her home town at that time.

Here is the 5'10½" blonde (with Sutherland in Toronto and Folio in Montréal) in the pages of West Coast magazine NUVO, photographed by Kyla Hemmelgarn (

Sutherland's Jessi M'Bengue

The most recent addition to Modelresource's list of blogs we follow (down the side of every model's page) is Jessi M'Bengue's "A Girl On a Journey." (

Modelresource has been following the Sutherland model for more than five years now, and in that time she's been extremely successful internationally, including campaigns for Aldo, Levi's Cheap Monday, Urban Outfitters, Macy's, Target, Bloomindales and many others.

Her most exciting campaign however... well you can read about that in M'Bengue's own words, as the Chantale Nadeau discovery is also Modelresource's latest Featured Model.

About eleven months ago Modelresource introduced you Amy G when she was a brand newbie.

I loved the face then, just as I do now in this new story from Sweden's Sofis Magazine, featuring the 5'9" Liz Bell model.

How great is this?

Matthew Lyn ( - someone with whom Modelresource has had a long association - just got a major cover, with a major model.

Mode's Simon Nessman flew into Montréal to shoot with Lyn; the result of which now appears on the face of the U.K.'s Supplementaire.

Since leaving behind has days at Folio's booking table, Alexandre de Bellefeuille hasn't exactly strayed.

The Montréaler is still working with models on a regular basis, producing videos for the likes of Marcelle Cosmetics.

This new series - which changes with each log-in to - features Folio's Kelly Craig and Marie-Ève Nadeau, as well as Next's Justine Paquette (pictured below).
