Sutherland has gone and put together a very stylish show package again this season. Seriously, it's fantastic.

Maxime Bocken www.maximebocken.com was the talent behind the lens for this very elegant presentation.

On the other side of the camera were several Modelresource favourites, including international phenom Addison Gill, Claire Oleson (who also styled the promo) and our very own Editorial Assistant Chelsea Coyle, who is currently in Paris.

To see the entire package, flip on over to Sutherland's website... it's well worth it.

Spot 6's Mella graces the fashion section of October's More magazine.

The Toronto modelling legend recently turned 40, and as her Manager Cynthia Cully puts it, "it's nice to see that the mature lady is hot, and that her agent from 20 years ago can still get her out there."

Crista Cober
Next's Crista Cober
Still more tearsheets are finding their way back to Next's offices in Toronto and Montréal, including the newest issue of U.K. Bazaar featuring Crista Cober's perfect face.

Southwestern Ontario's Cober recently returned to Canada after seven months in Europe, and will be in Toronto until early October.

Kim Cloutier shows up in the latest IN Magazine from New York.

Not surprisingly, the popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit model recently joined the esteemed ranks of those appearing in print for Victoria's Secret.

Montréal's Fannie Dulude meanwhile, picked up her first Parisian tearsheets just a month after arriving in France.

Pictured below are images of the 5'8½ brunette with the striking blue eyes, from Jeune et Jolie.

I can't recall the last time Modelresource got this much content out of one magazine release.

Next's Marie-Justine makes her second straight appearance in Z!NK Canada, this time photographed by Martin Tremblay (www.lepinch.com).

This is the fifth editorial we've featured from the current issue (here are the other four: 1|2|3|4); testimony to the amount of talent in Québec.

Modelresource - in Alberta all last week and this - got an email this morning regarding Edmonton's own top model.

You may have noticed the release of the new Levi's 501 campaign on Models.com recently, featuring Meghan Collison and the U.K.'s Josh Beech.

This morning Oli McAvoy from Chadwick Tyler's studio sent along links to campaign video, shot in Brooklyn's Naval Yard, for release in Europe.

Pop them into full-screen and watch Mode's Meghan in HD.

Modelresource told you Thursday about the team of Donat, Jenn Finkelstein and Steven Turpin combining for two stories in the current issue of Z!NK Canada.

This, then, would be the second one.

"The Naked Truth" features Giovanni's lovely Marie-Hélène McCormack (light blonde) and Montage beauty Ruby Brown (dark blonde).

Former featured model Isabelle Giguère tipped me off a couple weeks ago that she had two editorials coming out in the near future, but wondered if I would recognize her.

This is definitely a different look for the Montage model, but that remarkable face is unmistakable.

Montréal photographer Donat (dfoto.ca) shot this story for the new Z!NK Canada, along with another pair of phenomenal talents, Jenn Finkelstein and Steven Turpin.

Donat, currently in Croatia, actually has two gorgeous stories in this issue of Z!NK with Finkelstein and Turpin.

We'll have the other for you before the weekend.

When these images arrived in my email Tuesday afternoon, there was no doubt in my mind they were all going to be included.

Yann Ostiguy (www.yannostiguy.com), whose work impresses me time after time, worked with stunningly beautiful Doriane Monnier in the new issue of Z!NK Canada.

Brilliantly, as far as I'm concerned, he chose the theme "Multiplicity," which allowed for the Giovanni model to appear dozens of times in just eight pages.

If you were following Modelresource on Twitter last week, not only would you have been alerted as soon as Modelresource was updated, but you might have already learned that Toronto's LG Fashion Week will not be held at the Nathan Phillip Square this season (now at an abandoned car dealership on King St. W.), and that a new online magazine was on its way.

Filler has now arrived, and it's looking pretty spectacular, with homegrown content by the likes of Koby (www.koby-inc.com), featuring Marie-Eve; and Javier Lovera (jlyphoto.com), featuring Laura Kell.

Welcome, Filler!

NEW FACE ALERT


So the story goes something like this, as told by CoverModels' owner Viresh Pujara:

"Yesterday Brian [Ypperciel] was in Ottawa and dropped by the studio. Amanda happened to pop in after school, in her beautiful natural state and Brian was so taken by her that he pulled her out and did some impromptu shots of her.

Brian's a fan! Hopefully your readers will love her too!

Isla
Next new face Isla
NEW FACE ALERT


Isla offers proof that persistence pays off.

The 5'10" 20-year-old was scouted by Next's Montréal Director Didier Belleguic while she was visiting the city in May.

She was approached again by Next scout Frank Begin... then a third time by Next Canada's owner, Thierry Tally, after moving to Montréal at the end of August.

Since officially joining Next last week, the gorgeous brunette has already confirmed her first job and has had several requests.

Tara Jean
LizBell's Tara Jean
DNA Showcard - S/S 2010
When the couture shows hit Paris in July, Modelresouce had the opportunity to remind you of someone we started tracking the year previous.

Tara Jean is a LizBell model who this summer caught the attention of Karl Lagerfeld, and has been seeing the positive spin-off ever since.

Now HintMag.com is also taking note of the 5'10" Vancouverite, adding her Thursday to the popular ModelMania feature.

Tara Jean appears in this season's DNA show package, so we're hoping for big things in the days to follow.

Julia Dunstall
Mode's Julia Dunstall
Julia Dunstall may not be appearing in Women's show package this season, but don't mistake that as a sign she's taking it easy.

The Northern Albertan's stunning face has been popping all over the globe, including right here at home.

Glow's most recent issue features the Mode model on the cover, photographed by Chris Nicholls (www.chrisnichollsphotography.com).

Dunstall has also made recent appearances in German Elle, Vogue Nippon and for Coccinelle (more here).

Charlotte Le Bon
Folio's Charlotte Le Bon
For the longest time I would not accept that Charlotte Le Bon was real... well, that was the running joke, as her face is nearly too perfect to be believed.

Knowing this, the Folio mannequin introduced herself to me in March, and although I have since been able to verify her existence, I'm still in awe of those doll-like features.

Among the projects keeping 5'9" Le Bon busy in Europe this summer was NAF NAF's campaign, shot in Madrid.

The making of the project is documented on the French label's website, www.nafnaf.com.

Le Bon is also appearing at home in the new swimsuit collection by SHAN.

Pictured below is an early look.

Modelresource Editorial Assistant Chelsea Coyle continues her ascent through the industry.

The 17-year-old, starting her final year of secondary school today, had a very busy and lucrative summer.

Pictured on the right is the Chantale Nadeau model in the latest issue of Glow, photographed by Geneviève Caron (www.genevievecaron.com).

Her Toronto rep, Sutherland, also booked Coyle for Ashley Rowe's Fall 2009 lookbook, a selection of which appears in the latest Elle Canada.

Adding to the income is Coyle's appearance in the latest Yellow campaign, arranged through Giovanni in Montréal.

Chantal Stafford Abbott
Chantal Stafford-Abbott
for Yellow Shoes
Versatility, of course, is a huge asset in the modelling industry, and is a quality of which Chantal Stafford-Abbott has plenty.

Pictured on the left is the Specs model in the latest Yellow Shoes campaign from Québec.

Below, showing a much different side of the Laurentians area model, are two outstanding images from Nelson Simoneau (www.nelsonsimoneau.com).

Stafford-Abbott is on stay in Tokyo until mid-October, but the 5'10" redhead - whose career is already on a solidly upward trajectory - should get another boost when she returns to North America, as she has recently joined the roster of Marilyn's in New York.

Dana Drori
Next's Dana Drori
I used to think you had to meet her to understand how remarkable Dana Drori really is, but this story in the latest Flare illustrates both her captivating presence and absolute beauty.

The Next model - currently Modelresource's Featured Model - is someone I first met in December in Montréal.

Since then I've seen her a couple of times in Toronto (she has been visiting often, as the bookings pile up), and each occassion serves as a reminder of how incredible this 5'10" blonde, who spent the first half of 2009 working in Europe, truly is.

"Extreme Divide" was beautifully photographed for Flare by Chris Nicholls (www.chrisnichollsphotography.com).

Expect to see much more from Drori in the coming months...

Clara Settje
Trump new face Clara Settje
NEW FACE ALERT


Despite spending most of her young life south of the border, Trump's lastest impact girl has bona fide Canadian roots.

Clara Settje calls Rhode Island home right now, following a childhood spent mostly in Texas... but her birth certificate say Calgary, Alberta.

New York booker Lisa Forsberg (another beautiful Canadian prairie export), tells Modelresource the 5'10", blue-eyed, blonde started with Trump in March, and shortly after booked her very first job; Vogue Pelle (Italy), with Scott Schuman, creator of the insanely popular fashion blog, The Sartorialist.

Now in show mode, 16-year-old Settje has already been requested by DKNY, Charlotte Ronson and Philip Lim, as well as major casting directors like John Pfeiffer and Ashley Brokaw.

Andrea Brouwer
CoverModels' Andrea Brouwer
You have to love when good things happen for good people, and Andrea Brouwer is one of those.

Modelresource had the chance to work with the 5'10" blonde a bit last summer, and she's truly charming.

This summer has seen the Ottawa teen spending time in New York, building her book while meeting Manhattan's clientele.

Response has been favourable, we're told, so the CoverModels product has elected to do some e-schooling and head back to the Big Apple for the month of September.

Modelresource is wishing you all the best, Andrea.
