Tang Triplets Edmonton (first posted 29 September 2009). Ford Models Supermodel of the World Canada has got itself a unique triple threat in the persons of 18-year-old triplets Jade, Joelle, and Mariah Tang. Will these girls be the next Kim Cloutier? That remains to be seen but we think they’re going places.
Trivia: Joelle and Jade had small parts as “mirror mutant twins” in the summer blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine alongside the sexiest man alive, Hugh Jackman. The Calgary Herald reports that the two were supposed to be movie extras but got “promoted to paid roles”. Check them out in this photo with the tank top-wearing Hugh Jackman [Related: Hugh Jackman Wolverine Tank Top Shirt by Zimmerli Richelieu]
Now, if you are wondering if Joelle and Jade had a fight with Mariah and ditched her so she’s not in the movie, the answer is a big fat NO. Mariah is not in the movie because she was reportedly busy at that time with some modeling gigs in Asia.
To make up for Mariah’s absense in the pic above, here’s her looking gorgeous in her jeans and suspenders ensemble.
We’re happy to note that she’s not committing that fashion sin of wearing a belt along with her suspenders. [For related story see, Suspenders Fashion Tip: No Belts Dummy.
Tang Triplets Edmonton (Update: 23 July 2016). According to avenueedmonton.com, Jade Tang established a modeling agency in Edmonton. You might want to check it out, it’s called Vivi Bombshell.
In addition, we learn more about the girls in this avenueedmonton.com interview:
How did you start modelling?
Mariah: I was scouted when I was 14 in Southgate Centre by an agency — twice actually. I told her I was a triplet and she was like, “Oh, my God. I want to sign you right now.” I didn’t think of doing it at all but my mom said, “Try it once. Always try something once. Try it, and if you don’t like it, at least you did it.” So we did it. We tried it once and loved it.
Jade: I didn’t want to do it. It’s funny because I like modelling now and I started a modelling agency. But when I was younger, I had no confidence whatsoever. None of us did.
What is it that you enjoy about modelling?
Mariah: It’s a passion for me. I just think it’s fun, and there are lots of opportunities for travelling. It’s also a big rush.
Jade: I like meeting designers, and the feeling you get after you see your tear sheet.
Joelle: I just like the outcome. I hate standing there in one pose for a long time but then, after, you see the photos and are like, “Ohhhh.”
Jade, tell us about running your own modelling agency.
Jade: I love it. I started the agency here in Edmonton last year and it operates in Las Vegas as well. We have about 24 models and are still scouting.
Mariah: You see a lot from other agencies when you go overseas, you watch and learn and take it in and soak it up like a sponge — that’s what she did.
