5'9" Alicia Hughes of Guelph, Ontario "was an immediate first choice" for Nadeau.
The natural blonde, who just turned 20 in September, finished ahead of 18-year-old Rachel Jackson, currently studying in London, Ontario.
Jackson (digitals below) stands 5'11" with 34" hips and will also be represented by Nadeau.
The agency owner tells Modelresource "This was our busiest model search ever and we are now adding a new page to our website where you will be able to see all our beautiful finalists."

Modelresource posted the final Sydney contribution from Veronique Landry this morning, as she returns to Montage's care in Montréal.
Replacing the 18-year-old Québecoise is a model we're very excited to have writing for Modelresource. Not only is Drea the cover model from The Canadian Model's Resource, but she is now working with Glamour Women in Shenzhen, a market largely unknown on this side of the globe.
Watch for her first journal entry in the next couple of weeks.

Last year, when Andi Muise appeared in the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show it was a really big deal.
Canadian media clamoured to get her story, and Arena Magazine made her the featured model in their Ultimate Guide to 2006. In reference to her appearance in the Victoria's Secret show, the Brit mag recorded "... far from being nervous, she stood around blithely looking stunning, pretending not to notice while blokes lost it every time they came within nine feet of her."
So imagine how proud Michèle Miller is to learn that not only is Muise a repeat booking for this year's show, but Jessica Stam is joining her.
Both models were discovered by Miller; Muise while walking through a mall in Barrie, Stam in a donut shop.
Another Canadian in this year's event is 18-year-old superstar Heather Marks (Mode, Giovanni) making her first appearance for the lingerie retailer.
Only 27 models are cast for this, the most high-profile fashion show in the world, which happens tonight in Hollywood.

Célestine avec Kaitlyn Vanderkooi
One of the beautiful new faces Modelresource saw for the first time while in Montréal last week was Célestine (left).
The 15-year-old is a recent signing with Folio, and is pictured here in the latest Yellow Shoes catalogue with another of Folio's amazing young models, Kaitlyn Vanderkooi.

Modelresource spent the weekend in Montréal where Model & Talent Search Canada took over Le Centre Sheraton.
A quick update from NAM, which tells Modelresource two of their top models are in London right now shooting Spring/Summer '07.
Andrew Stetson, who is currently all over Calvin Klein Euphoria's ads is in the U.K. doing GURU Clothing's print/TV/catalogue, while Milan Krouzil was booked for Italian label ETRO's new print campaign.

Yesterday Modelresource went on location for a photoshoot involving Hannah Quick from Ford.
The early shots we've seen back from photographer Lindsey Marie look amazing, but we're not sharing them until the profile goes online next week.
To give you a sense of the setting however, have a look at a couple of photos Modelresource snapped.

You may recall back in the summer when Lydia Nyilasi was working in Europe and doing some cool sounding tests.
This would be one of them - the result of a rainy, 12 hour shoot outside of London.

Hannah Quick by Francisco Garcia
Modelresource will be on location today, interviewing Ford's Hannah Quick for an upcoming feature.
Why Hannah? Imagine being 15-years-old and medical experts saying you will never walk again... that's what she faced.
The Calgarian walked eight runways at the recent L'Oréal Fashion Week, including opening Ron & Charles.
We think hers is a pretty cool story.

The strangest thing happened Friday. Montréal lingerie & swimwear label SHAN was presenting in Toronto and the show actually started early. Yes, early.
REHEARSAL Kori (Giovanni) & Jenna (Ford)
Justyna (Giovanni) & Katherine (Next)
David (Specs) & Eva (Next)
What was even more surprising than the early start was seeing the models being served risotto before the show... in real dishes no less!

Was I impressed? Oh yes. As was Judy Inc hair & makeup artist Eduardo Mella who was singing the praises of Show Producer Hans Koechling for running such a tight production.
ALMOST SHOWTIME Christine Garus (Elite), Katherine Target (Next), Kori Richardson, Eva Shaw & Justyna
Robyn Sinclair (Sutherland)
