It seems Next in Montréal scored a bit of a cosmetics coup this season.

A stroll through the makeup counters reveals three major campaigns, with three different Next models.

Justine Paquette is actually the face of Marcelle's skin care and their cosmetics lines, while Sandra Bérubé is all over Lise Watier's imaging and Isla smoulders in the new ads for Annabelle.

A quick check-in with Montage suggests a couple girls worth bringing to your attention.

Ariane is someone Modelresource showed you in August, as part of Festival Mode et Design Montréal.

The 5'9½" blonde was featured in a recent La Presse article on new faces.

Meanwhile, someone Modelresource has been watching for nearly four years - Geneviève Bouffard - recently returned to Montréal after an extended overseas trip.

Look for her on the cover of the upcoming issue of Clin d'oeil.

Last show season, you may recall, Modelresource was all about Madison Schill (click here, scroll down... you'll see) for the uniquely beautiful energy she brought to LG Fashion Week.

The Ford model took her game south this season, where she did 13 shows / presentations in New York (also with Ford).

Included in the 5'10" brunette's recent string of Manhattan appearances was a hometown turn for Toronto's Pink Tartan, and an opening slot for threeASFOUR.

The recent high school graduate - who has deferred studies at one of Canada's top business schools - was also cited in Youth In Motion's Top 20 Under 20 Awards, in part for her efforts to raise understanding of homelessness issues.

The Fall 2011 issue of Filler is out with new some decidedly morbid content in the fashion department.

Below are images from the story "A Beautiful Death," featuring Sutherland's Heather Peat; and "Lady Killer," starring Next's Mary Brisebois throughout the story, and a trail of male victims.

(updated) The dates are back on the website, and LG Fashion Week is committed to October 17-23, but at a new location.

David Pecaut Square (formerly Metro Square) may be best known across the country as the site of the recent state funeral for former NDP leader Jack Layton.

The Fashion Design Council of Canada is hoping the prime downtown location draws the fashion crowd to their own event, now just weeks away.

That, of course, means castings are just around the corner.

With that in mind we offer these tips to increase your odds of booking the shows:
