W Models' Noot Seear in Harper's Bazaar (UK), by Yu Tsai
You may have heard a few months ago that Vancouver's Noot Seear landed the role of "Heidi" in the Twilight sequel, New Moon.
What you probably didn't hear was the W Models' beauty has actually been cast for next three movies in the series.
Rumour has it Seear's character may die a "very poetic death at some point" but we're told Summit Entertainment has been very secretive about the project, and even Seear doesn't know her character's fate.
The three-picture deal is confirmed though, according to W Models owner Selena Wallace, and with New Moon having just wrapped, 25-year-old Seear can concentrate on modelling again for a bit.
Last week the 5'9" brunette returned from Saint-Tropez - where she shot a cosmetics campaign for Europe - to be photographed for the cover of German Elle.
Seear also has a Garnier commercial in rotation, and can be found in the current UK Bazaar (pictured on the left).

Jeanne Bouchard, from St-Bernard-de-Beauce (near Québec City) gained a bit of notoriety a couple years ago when, at age 14, she represented Canada at the Ford Supermodel of the World contest.
Now 16, the Mode é Arto model is putting her six years of industry experience (she started young!) to work in Paris, where her appearance in Celine's cruise collection last week created some positive online buzz.
The 5'10" blue-eyed brunette, who is one of seven children, is very involved in dance (jazz, in particular), and is a strong student in a program with a heavy concentration on sports.
Bouchard is placed with Montage in Montréal, and IMG in Paris and New York.

Babar Khan (www.babar-khan.com) really doesn't look old enough to have been around for 15 years.
The Toronto photographer however, is indeed proudly displaying a nicely edited decade-and-a-half's worth of work at the UPC Boutique in Yorkville.
A packed house marked the occassion last night, featuring not just Khan's photos on diplay, but also a book of his work, a recently produced video featuring I.M.M.'s Raelyn, and limited edition t-shirts (the proceeds from which will go to charity).
The event was produced by Femka Van Buuren (www.femka.com), a private art dealer in New York and Toronto who presents Khan's work to collectors worldwide.
