It seems that Canada’s main export is its extremely beautiful men and women who eventually join the modeling business.
Alana Zimmer was a waitress at East Side Mario’s in Ontario, Canada when she was discovered by a modeling scout. The owner of the restaurant said in an interview that Zimmer was very good at her job and was loved by the customers and her co-workers. But as fate has it, life had more in store for the striking beauty. The new Canadian model debuted for Schouler, Chanel and D&G in 2006 and she rocked the runway from there. Another model from Ontario is Amanda Laine was discovered at the age of 15 when she landed in the top 5 of V/A magazine’s online contest. She flew to New York for a crazy week of interviews, casting rehearsals and photo shoots.
Doll-like Canadian supermodel Heather Marks also hails from the province of Alberta. After her swift discovery in Mode Models she debuted in the year 2003 at a Givenchy show in Paris.
Supermodel Andi Muise is a native of North Bay, Ontario who rocked the runway the first time for the fall show of Mischka. She later walked for premium designers such as Victoria’s Secret, D&G and Lacoste among others.
The Canadian synchronized swimmer and actress turned model Estella Warren is also a native of Ontario. This Canadian has wowed not only the runway but the tv series and the movies.

Indeed the Canadians were ruling the runway. Do not think however that only the women from Canada have walked the model walk. Ultra-elegant and ultra-gorgeous French-Canadian Gabriel Aubry is a male supermodel. The gig that launched his career is being the official face of Hugo Boss. Today, Aubry has a pay rate of $30,000 per day. Handsome show stopper Alex Loomans, the face of Polo Ralph Lauren hails from Toronto, Canada following the footsteps of other Canadian male models that have made a mark in the fashion industry.
The beautiful, Irish dance enthusiast Coco Rocha danced her way to the runway figuratively and literally. Rocha hails from Toronto, Canada and was only 14 when she started modeling. The beautiful young lady is one of the forefronts of going against eating disorders. One of the few models who is not only extremely pretty but is smart and opinionated as well. Many have gone loco for Coco and other supermodels and models from Canada. And I have to say thank you Canada!
