Elite Model Look Organisers: Inside Elite Model Look
Eleonore Vanden Eynde, Elite Model Look Belux
This is the first year we have run Elite Model Look in Belgium and Luxembourg. We found some really good contestants - I'm so proud of Xanthe and Han. It was a challenge to do it for the first time – but a good one! As we are a very young team, we wanted to make something very modern. We took them into the woods for the National Bootcamp, like they were Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, so they can learn the tough life, being a model is not always about being in five-star hotels! We were inspired by England, so we aimed to do something in that cool, simple, English style.
Marc Robinson, Elite Model Look India
It’s great to see Finalists from all over the world come together as one large family at the World Final, to make their dreams a reality. We look for that freshness in the Finalists, their passion, drive, confidence, style, desire to succeed, individuality. Arya and Mustafa are great Winners. An all-round unique personality. The World Final is also the opportunity to consider and improve our national Elite Model Look in India, and to meet our colleagues from around the world.
Elizabeth Aisien, Elite Model Look Nigeria
The Elite Model Look World Final is always an experience! A good model is someone who walks into a room and gets noticed instantly. Amazing striking features, friendly, sweet to people and most important, humble - nothing beats being humble. This year, Elite Model Look Nigeria celebrated 10 years. My favorite moment was seeing my National Finalist become as the overall winner in 2016. We made history! Tobi and Stephen are fantastic, we're very happy with them.
Sasha Jany, Elite Model Look Czech Republic and Slovakia
Each year, I love seeing the new Elite Model Look talent from all over the world. I have been attending the World Final since 1991, and I enjoy seeing colleagues, some of whom I only have a chance to see at the event. It´s great to see the Finalists all together, see them establishing new friendships and exchanging experiences. In new models, I mostly look for the complexity, it is not only about beauty, it´s a lot about energy that a person gives out. A Finalist doesn’t have to be an obvious extrovert for me. I enjoy discovering other skills that the contestants have besides modeling. This year, for example, Vaclav from Czech Republic rides motorbikes, and Natasa from Slovakia plays guitar. Leontyna from Czech Republic and Matus from Slovakia are super talented too!
