Modelresource has been telling you about Delphie for more than two years now.

Fact is, we're rather fond of this Isabelle Trudel discovery.

The 18-year-old is off to New York this weekend - in advance of the shows - with a bunch of new tearsheets booked through Folio in Montréal.

Pictured here are selections from a recent Pure story, Rad by Rad Hourani, and images from the new Bedo campaign.

Expect to see still more from the Québec City brunette in the next issue of Elle Québec.

Mode's Edmonton office is strengthening its position in the Alberta capital by relocating one of its key assets.

Michael Meneghetti has been handling an increasing amount of scouting and promotion duties in the past year from his base in Southern Alberta, and finding a great deal of success.

The Calgarian tells Modelresource he will continue to work the international board, while assuming local bookings in Edmonton starting September 1st.

This is the Edmonton office's second major announcement this year; following a brief closure the agency re-opened under new management in February.

Brianna
I Model Mgmt new face Brianna
NEW FACE ALERT


In addition to his duties running I Model Mgmt in Calgary, Len Mastaler also travels the globe scouting for Singapore's Looque.

It was on one of those recent trips that he came across this lovely new face.

Brianna is a Québecoise, who happened to explore opportunities in Toronto when Mastaler was there in July.

Mastaler signed the gorgeous, 5'9½" 14-year-old, and now has her placed with Next in Montréal.

Ryan Martel
Folio's Ryan Martel for Rudsak
The face has fed the Modelresource content machine more than any other over the past three years is undoubtedly Ryan Martel's (which is why we're thrilled to have the young Québecoise as our current Featured Model).

The 5'10½" Folio femme is in near continual rotation in Canadian magazines, as evidenced yet again this month.

Flare's nod to Canadian designers, photographed by Max Abadian (www.maxabadian.com) places Martel alongside Montréal's Denis Gagnon, Renata Morales and Rad Hourani (as well as Folio mate Masha).

Also just released - and also spotlighting Martel - is the new Rudsak campaign, brilliantly shot by Mackenzie Duncan (www.mackenzieduncan.com), placing the blue/green-eyed brunette alongside Montage's Felix.

This is Martel's third consecutive Rudsak campaign.

Pictured below the magazine and campaign images are Martel's most recent snapshots, taken outside Folio's office.

The 16-year-old is currently refining her walk, in advance of New York's show castings (where she is represented by DNA).

Laura Kell
Next new face Laura Kell with
Kirk Pickersgill (Greta Constantine)
A couple weeks ago Modelresource gave voice to CoverModels' Laura Kell, who as our featured model listed "Booking Flare and Fashion Magazine within the first month of being in Toronto" as her best modelling moment.

Those stories are out now - Flare shot by Max Abadian (www.maxabadian.com) and Fashion by Miguel Jacob (www.migueljacob.com).

Since starting with Next in May, the 19-year-old has garnered major attention in Toronto, as well as very flattering write-ups back home in Vancouver, and internationally on widely read industry blog Fashion does it better.

Pretty safe bet Kell's best modelling moments are still to come...
