Alberta may often be considered the coldest province in all of Canada, but there are many things that this frontier western region has makes it quite a hot spot.
Whether it is busting hockey-mad oil towns such as Edmonton and Calgary, to it’s multi-cultural communities, one wouldn’t think of this region of 4.1 million with sprawling mountains, prairies produces some of the hottest models on Earth.
Famous Albertans include fashion models and actresses such as Tricia Helfer, Michelle Beaudoin and Meghan Collison. Could former Playboy model and actress Lindsay Reynolds be the next one?
A proud and spirited western Canadian frontier girl through and thru, Lindsay channels a sense of fierce edginess in modeling a wide range of genres such as nudes, glamour, portrait, fitness, bodyscapes, fashion, lingerie, bikini, runway, underwater, editorial and conceptual.
Despite being 25, the feisty and petite Lindsay has posed for brands such as Playboy Mexico in 2014 in Cancun and Ravish Sands Swimwear.

This has been a major issue that I have kept close to my heart. As a model I get slut shamed all the time. All because of the clothing and content I portray.

Many people are very uneducated on this manor.
