Top 15 Winners Elite Model Look World Final 2017
Overall Boy Winner: Antonio from Brazil
I am very, very happy to have won Elite Model Look, I could never had imagined it, it was such an amazing surprise! I was quite nervous before the show started, when I was waiting to go on stage, but I felt really excited when I walked on the runway. I found out about the contest because at my school, there was a flyer about a scouting trip in my city, and I decided to go, but only out of curiosity. I never thought I would ever do modelling before, or that I would win the Elite Model Look contest. Before that, I wanted to study agriculture, or to be a mechanical engineer, or go into the army. Being a model is a completely different life from all of that, but it’s an amazing experience. Outside modelling, I am interested in all kinds of extreme sports, anything that gives me adrenaline. I am part of the Brazilian Boy Scouts, we go on trips and learn how to do things outdoors. I like wild camping with them, I love swimming, football, handball, and all kinds of sport. And of course, I like partying with my friends! I will celebrate with them when I get back for sure.
Overall Winner: Valeria C from Russia
I am very happy to have won the competition. When they first called my name, I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was a mistake! But then I realized that I am really the Winner, it was amazing. The show was good – at first, I was a bit scared, because it’s a very big, very important show, but then I started to enjoy it. Apart from winning, my favourite part of the show was taking off the hoods, it was really dramatic. When I was first scouted in Russia, I was not tall enough to be a model, but my mother encouraged me to be a model. I hope that when I become a top model, I will work with all of the top brands, it’s my dream! I am from Moscow, from an area called Lublino. If I was not a model, but perhaps I would go to MGIMO, one of the top universities in Russia, to study Global Economics, I think it’s very interesting. Outside modelling, I love reading books. Twice a week, I go to the swimming pool for lessons, and this contest, I want to learn to sing. My parents were watching the show live online, they couldn’t be at the show. After the show, I called my mother, she was just saying, “oh my God!!” She was so happy. I won’t have time to celebrate with my friends when I have exams, but at Christmas time I will have a party at my grandmother’s house with my family.
