It’s another set of Man Lab links. Let’s give this linkdump a Canadian flavour to kick things off. Here’s Canadian model Kim Cloutier. The fact that she was only in the SI Swimsuit Issue once is their loss.

Man Lab Showdown: Adriana Lima vs. Candice Swanepoel

Our third Man Lab Showdown is likely to be the best one we ever do. It’s a battle of the generations as we pit two Victoria’s Secret Angels against each other.

At 22, she’s already found herself near the top of the modelling world.
