The Spot 6 new face secured nine mens shows at Mode à Paris, but had to drop two due to scheduling.

Alas, still a damn fine first season, walking for Commes des Garçons, Ann Demeulemeester, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Lanvin, Julius and Rynshu.

In Paris meanwhile, Elite's been collecting the 5'10" CoverModels blonde's tearsheets, including this new one that appears in Madame Figaro.

As her agent says, "it's that skin!" that keeps former Featured Model Amanda Balsdon in demand.

The 27-year-old I Model Management brunette still meets with success whenever she chooses to pack her suitcase.

Three years ago the Calgarian opened Commes des Garçons in Paris, and one year later did the shows in Milan.

The majority of her travels take her through Asia, however. The shots below are from a new series promoting Thailand's The Mall.
