For months Modelresource has lobbied to see Andi Muise get recognized in Canada.

The girl is gorgeous, and as photographers and fashion editors everywhere else in the world have realized, the camera loves her.

Finally, we're happy to report, Fashion Magazine has taken note.

Expect to see Muise in a forthcoming issue, shot in Miami by Gabor Jurina and styled by the magazine's Fashion Director Susie Sheffman.

Michèle Miller has a couple hot new faces to add to her roster at International Model Management.

5'9" Allison is 15-years-old, and was discovered at the same mall as another of Miller's stars, Andi Muise.

5'10" Michelle meanwhile, is also 15-years-old and was spotted at a department store while Miller was buying diapers for her new daughter.

Both of the gorgeous youngsters are being held back from placement until international scouts make their annual trek Barrie for IMM's model search (tentatively scheduled for the end of April).

Andi Muise, for whom Modelresource readers predicted good things for in the coming year, is doing her part to fulfill the prophecy.

After appearing in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to cap 2005, the sexy brunette is now confirmed to continue her relationship with the underwear empire by appearing in the company's catalogue.

Julia Dunstall
Julia Dunstall
Very few new models have seen their careers take off as quickly as Julia Dunstall's in the past year.

Currently at number 29 on the Models.com rankings (she only entered the Top 50 five months ago), Dunstall was a runway favourite in the Spring 2006 shows, while pulling down some serious campaigns and firing off one inspired editorial after another.

Most recently the native of Gunn, Alberta appeared with Meredith Mason and Madeleine Berrevoets in British vogue's "Class of 2006," shot by Paolo Roversi. The feature contains photos of 27 of the top new international models (male and female).

Dunstall is one of those models that photographers love to work with, and people love to look at. We've now given her photos a page of their own.

Bojana
Bojana
For months Ford Models has been singing the praises of Bojana, who was the Canadian selection to compete in the Ford Supermodel of the World contest.

Last night the world started singing along, as the Toronto-area model finished first runner up at the prestigious competition in New York.

The 14-year-old claims a US$150,000 contract with Ford (worldwide). The winner, Katsia Damenkova of Belarus, won a $250,000 contract.

Past Canadian winners have included Monika Schnarre, Tricia Helfer and Leanne Spencer. Vancouver's Ingrid Schram was a runner-up last year, and walked away with a US$100,000 contract.

Jessica Stam
Jessica Stam
Modelresource isn't really in the gossip business, but we feel the need to say a big thanks to Jessica Stam for her recent romantic involvement with Red Hot Chili Peppers' frontman, Anthony Kiedis.

Because of Modelresource's high search-engine rankings, thousands of celeb-obsessed types are finding their way to our gallery of Stam photos.

For others wanting a piece of one of the most recognizable models in the world, Marc Jacobs recently released a very cool Stam Bag inspired by the Kincardine kitten.

Usually when a magazine comes to the door, the first thing Modelresource does is rip out all the photos.

When Highrise comes out however, we can't bear to split the seam. Such a nice magazine.

The current issue, which we just got our hands on yesterday, features Maria Dvirnik looking as stunning as ever through Malina Corpadean's lens, as well as long-time Modelresource fave Lisa Cote, shot by long-time Modelresource fave David Hou.

New Face 2005 alumni Peter James (shot by James Barr) and Peter Muratis (shot by mooishi) also make appearances.

Irina Lazareanu
on Vogue Italia
When was the last time you saw a 70-page story in Vogue Italia? Yeah, me either...

Have a look at the current issue of the industry bible and you'll be seeing a lot of Irina Lazareanu, who not only appears in the lengthy Steven Meisel pictorial tribute to the art of Rock 'n' Roll, but also finds herself on the cover.

Not surprisingly, the captivating Giovanni model took a major leap on the Models.com Top 50 this week to #36, making her the sixth Canadian model to occupy a top 40 postion (along with Julia Dunstall, #29 ; Heather Marks, #23; Lisa Cant, #14; Jessica Stam #13; and Daria Werbowy #1).
