Chantale Nadeau's Sarah Jackson
One of Modelresource's first Featured Models, Sarah Jackson (August 2007), just returned from London where she shot her second campaign for Fantasie lingerie.
For someone that waited until her late 20s to start her career, the Chantale Nadeau model has had a wildly successful career.
Says Nadeau: "With her gorgeous personality and womanly body, it really shows that if you believe in yourself the sky is the limit. She makes me so proud!!!"
Jackson is with Leni's (formerly Quintessentially) in London, Sutherland in Toronto and Folio in Montréal.

At the end of a very busy summer that saw Laura Kell appearing in Flare, Fashion, Cheek and Filler; as well is in stunning images for Mikhael Kale (www.mikhaelkale.com), the West Vancouver native returned home briefly.
That West Coast sojourn proved to be yet another opportunity to build her book, as the Next model made time to shoot with Jeff Petry (jeffleepetry.com) for NUVO magazine.
Kell - who just started modelling in the summer - is now back in university in Ottawa, where she is managed by CoverModels.

Pictured below is the new cover of i-D featuring Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer, as debuted Wednesday on Models.com.
Photographed by Kayt Jones, this is the first i-D cover to feature the makeup talents of Vanngo.
Modelresource, of course, is super happy for the transplanted Vietnamese-Canadian, who is truly a skilled artist and a damn fine person.

Next's Britt Schafer
Bazaar in Thailand published a beautiful story last week featuring one of Next's West Coast models.
Britt Schafer - who spent her summer working in Barcelona - is the kind of model that makes my efforts with Modelresource feel worthwhile. Anyone who takes advantage of the opportunities this industry provides to enrich themselves as humans, not just clothes hangers, is the type of person I want to write for/about.
"North Americans could learn so much from these amazing people. Everyone here just laughs everything off. No big deal, my friend! Laid back."
The 5'9", green-eyed, blonde tells Modelresource about going to temples, coming face-to-face with tigers and elephants, checking out waterfalls and riding a bamboo raft down a river, for "$35 CDN including transportation and a traditional Thai lunch." Amazing.
As far as work goes, Schafer has done several editorials, a few catalogues, a Marie Claire/Clinique event, Elle Fashion Week and several other shows, but one of the highlights thusfar she says, was shooting on the beach for the label Fly Now. "The teams shoot so fast here... 5 - 10 frames and then you hear, 'ok change!,' and they feed you at least twice on set!"
"I would come back to work here in a heartbeat, and make extra time to enjoy the people, the food, and the country even more than I already am beyond Bangkok. I really want to travel more of Southeast Asia. I feel like I am growing so much with every trip and every experience. I am so thankful I decided to finally commit to this industry after years of debating whether or not it was right for me."
And this goes back to what I mentioned earlier. The industry led Schafer to Thailand, which led her to explore new paths. "I am finding myself growing more curious about spirituality as a result of this trip and am planning on doing a lot of reading. So cool to see Monks in person. Just being on the streets or wandering the mazes of lanes makes you feel like you're on another planet sometimes. The energy and buzz of Bangkok is unreal... and yet there is some sort of surreal tranquility."
