The 32nd Elite Model Look contest has been won by Tristan, a 21 year-old Frenchman, and Anouk, who is 15 and from the Netherlands.
Both of these aspiring models have won a three-year contract with the Elite group agencies.
The international final contest was held in Milan, Italy, before an invited audience and a jury that included Victoria da Silva, president of Elite Model Look International, Vick Mihaci, president of Elite Management Worldwide, and Marilena Borgna, casting director at Vogue Italia.
After months of castings, street-scouting, catwalk training, photo sessions, fittings, and interviews, the names of the two winners of the one of the world’s most prestigious model contests have now been announced.
Tristan and Anouk have signed a contract with the Elite group agencies, which should quickly put them on the catwalks of biggest designers on the planet.
Anouk won over the jury with her slender silhouette (1.81m), “her photogenic quality and her natural beauty”, while Tristan stood out from the 19 other finalists because of his “athletic silhouette” (1.91m) and his “piercing stare”.
The contest previously launched the careers of such fashion icons as Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, and Gisele Bundchen. – AFP Relaxnews
