The World’s Top Model contest

22 October 2008


What happens when the world's biggest modelling agency Elite - which represents 800 models from 5 continents, including supers such as Coco Rochas, Aline Weber and May Andersen - hosts a competition to crown one winner amongst their own? A lot of legs, some fierce style and a serious case of mere mortals ducking-from-photographers perhaps? But come November 1st, the hottest and newest Elite girls will be descending on China for the final of the Elite Model Look. And if you're a wannabe Kate or Agyness this is, like, huge. Previous winner Charlotte Di Calypso became the face of Chanel ‘Chance' perfume, for example, so for one lucky (and probably very tall) lady, this is the chance of a lifetime. So who's our tip? Watch out for Prague's Anna K. Bearing a striking resemblance to top model Suvi Kopenen, she'll no doubt catch the judge's eye. But whilst we love looking out for the newbies, there's nothing like some Old Guard nostalgia. Check out Naomi, Cindy, et al. showing the youngsters how it's done here. But be warned - it will make you realise how little they have aged!
