Thanks to everyone who voted for their favourite faces in the Instagram ELLE Canada Model Search in honour of our 15th birthday this spring.

The judges chose 15 semifinalists and the public chose these final five Insta-stars:


Natalia from Greenwood, N.S.
McKenzie from Edmonton
Meg Celeste from Whitby, Ont.
Emily from Montreal
Maire Cait from Richmond Hill, Ont.

Their fate is now back in the hands of the judges, who are from ELLE Canada, Saks Fifth Avenue and Chantale Nadeau Model Placement.

It’s going to be a busy few months for our five finalists. In late February/early March, they will be flown to Toronto for a live photo shoot at Queen Street Saks Fifth Avenue. The photo shoot will be published in the 15th-anniversary issue of ELLE Canada (May 2016).

The winner will be announced on Instagram on March 28. In addition to appearing in the ELLE Canada anniversary issue, she will be profiled in an exclusive editorial feature on and may be managed by Chantale Nadeau Model Placement.
