MODEL WATCH: Ottawa beauty Amanda Nimmo wears Versace, Dior in FASHION Mag’s 35th anniversary issue

Amanda Nimmo appears in a spread in FASHION Magazine called "A Canadian in Paris."

It’s been over a year since we first reported on Ottawa model Amanda Nimmo. Back in fall 2011, she was featured in an 8-page spread in LOULOU Magazine and was jet-setting around Europe doing the fashion week circuit. This season, the hometown beauty added runway walks for Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, and J. Crew in New York, as well as long list of others in Milan, Paris, and London.

Plus, this month’s edition of FASHION (part of our St. Joseph Media family) has Amanda cloaked in couture by legends like Gaultier, Dior, Versace, and Chanel (sigh). Shot at the historic — and luxurious, bien sur — Hôtel de Crillon, it’s FASHION‘s 35th anniversary issue, and Amanda’s feature is but one of the gems in the hefty book. Get thee to a newsstand and pick it up!

For now, check out this video of Amanda talking about getting scouted in Ottawa, her career so far, and being a Canadian in Paris.
