The new issue of LOULOU features a cover model soon to be a bit more familiar to Modelresource readers.
This site first told you about Charlotte Le Bonin May when she signed with DNA and Viva, then followed up in June with a tearsheet image from Pure.
Her most recent LOULOU cover is the second for the 5'9" brunette, who is joined inside the magazine by two other Folio models - Billie-Jazz and Richelle Dobson.
Modelresource followers can learn a bit more about Le Bon - who is currently in New York shooting, amongst other things, Elle UK with Gilles Bensimon - soon, when she will be profiled as part of our new Model of the Week feature.

Canada's Next Top Model, Rebecca Hardy
Modelresource spent Monday at the beach with Rebecca Hardy, a.k.a Canada's Next Top Model.
Since being revealed as the show's winner last week the Mannheim, Ontario model has been getting used to the fame that comes with the title. Fans of the show, she tells me, have even walked up to her car window to congratulate her while she waits for lights to change.
The 5'11" redhead shot an editorial for Fashion - part of the prize package that comes with the title - Sunday, with Miguel Jacob. Monday it was David Hou's turn behind the lens, and the shots on his camera looked rather incredible.
Modelresource's profile on the Sutherland newface will be online by the end of the week.
Another Canadian model that has been having an amazing experience in the French capital is Next's Mackenzie.
The Vancouver model was actually discovered in Monteréal, and on her first trip to The City of Lights managed to shoot French Glamour (8 pages), Profile Magazine (12 pages + cover), Madame Figaro (8 pages + cover), a campaign for Paul & Joe and L'Oréal Paris.
The 5'10" new face will return to Paris in September, where she works through Ford."
Meanwhile, another Next Canada model finding success through Ford in Paris is Inès Steinmetzer.
The 6'0" Montréal native is a local favourite, but just completed her first trip to France where she appeared in the Armani Privé couture show, amongst others.

Model of the Week Jessica Jolin
As Modelresource's popularity continues to grow, we want to open it up to allow the real stars - the models - to have more of a voice.
Starting today this site will run a Model of the Week feature, where models can share a bit of their industry experience in their own words, and to select a favourite image from their portfolio.
Last October Tamara McDonald's career started to really take off around the time of Fashion Week.
Almost immediately after dominating the Toronto runways the 19-year-old left for Tokyo, where she was kept very busy, before heading to Paris, and then Milan where she worked in the miu miu showroom and booked some nice editorial (like the Silhouette cover on the right).
A brief homecoming followed, before the Ford model returned to Tokyo for another busy three months.
McDonald is back in Toronto now, with a much more developed book and a ton of international experience.
She will spending a few months at home before a likely return to Europe following the upcoming fashion week.

Little known fact: I went to college for broadcast journalism, hoping to become a sportscaster.
That's why it's fun for me when I get to include some hockey stuff into Modelresource updates.
It seldom happens, but today I get to write, if only briefly, about a high-profile offseason signing by the New Jersey Devils.
Dainius Zubrus (a former Montréal Canadien) is a very skilled Lithuanian forward (so skilled that the Buffalo Sabres traded for him near the end of the regular season, believing he might be the missing piece in their quest for the Stanley Cup), and his wife is a stunning Giovanni model.
Nathalie Sanschagrin was based in Washington D.C., where Zubrus played before the trade, but will now be based in the New York area, which makes getting her to Montréal and Toronto much easier - a fact which the crew at Giovanni are quite excited about.
In addition to her writings, Cleary has also agreed to act as Moderator for the Health & Fitness Section of the Modelresource Discussion Board.
Cleary is the second recognized expert to take on a Moderator role in the past week, joining Jennifer McWhirter (Self Image) whose recent Muse Study has been discussed extensively in recent media reports.
Modelresource is thrilled to have the participation of these two experts in their respective fields, and invites you to register for the Discussion Board to either post questions or add your voice to the discussion.
