MR SL 2018 – Challenges, results and winners !

photography by Lim Moen Ling

 

Last Saturday we have held the first runway challenge for the MR SL 2018 Candidates and got surprised by a group of very disciplined candidates, interesting outfits and learned about famous men of their countries, they were inspired by. This first challenge has been an ultimate check for us, to see how far the candidates experience and imagination in their styling goes and at which points we may have to raise the bars for each candidate individually.

 

 

The candidates have earned 623 points into their competition scores for the “Men of History” challenge. Four outfits received the highest score of 10 points from at least one judge. The majority of the points were assigned in the middle field of the scorecards, at 03 to 07 points for each individual candidate and styling. The candidates in MISS SL 2017 achieved 719 points in their first runway challenge, with 4 more participating candidates, hence we believe that our male counterparts have delivered an excellent start into the MR SL 2018 competition. We may thank the judges, who certainly had a hard task evaluating our candidates in this first opportunity.

 

 

We also thank the audience, who have joined the challenge show. The venue was filled and we may apologize if not everyone have found a seat. We are grateful for the many pictures, that have been posted after the show on the social networks, which mean a beautiful memory to the candidates and us also. We may extend our deepest gratitude towards our sponsors for the MR SL 2018 pageant, for their invaluable continued support.

 

After the challenge we invited the candidates, the judges and the audience also to the Rezzday party of Hikaru Enimo, Editor-in-Chief of the L’Homme Magazine SL and one of our strongest supporter to MISS SL Organization. In this event the candidates also had the opportunity to present their styling for the first mini challenge, a ‘black&white’ styling, meeting the events dress code. Additionally the candidates had to upload a picture of their styling to the MR SL 2018 Flickr group. After an extended deadline and some technical delays we have now the result. Three judges, representing the L’Homme Magazine SL, have reviewed the picture submissions and chose their three favorite styling, as seen below, in no particular order but alphabetical by their country name:

MR SL ♛ Czech Republic 2018 – Wassaabii

MR SL ♛ Czech - First Mini Challenge

MR SL ♛ Ecuador 2018 – – Mishi2223

MR SL ♛ Ecuador - First Mini Challenge

MR SL ♛ India 2018 – Paradox Messmer

MR SL ♛ [ India ] 2018 – First Mini Challenge

We congratulate this three winners of this first mini challenge, who have received each equally 30 points towards their competition scores. We thank all candidates for their participation in this mini challenge and also for their appearance at Hikaru’s rezzday party.

 

 

Before we reveal the second runway challenge, we certainly do not want to get the candidates feeling bored, so we have a first (regular) photo challenge for the MR SL 2018 candidates. The photo challenge differs to the mini challenges in the amount of judges who score the picture submissions and the amount of points that an individual candidate can earn towards their competition scores. A photo challenge gets judged and scored like a regular runway challenge, with 10 judges and 100 points as highest possible scoring per candidate.

MOVING PICTURES

The first photo challenge may sound easy at first glance, but we do hope for a boost of creativity and inspiration with this challenge. We are asking the candidates to choose their favorite quote in their favorite film and to reproduce the scene in a styling and a picture.

Julia Seton (Doris Nolan) and Johnny Case (Cary Grant) in Holidays (1938)

  • create a styling inspired by the actor in the film, whom the quote originates from. ATTENTION: Your favorite quote must be from a male actor.
  • create or find a scene in SL, in which you can take the picture in, more or less resembling the scene in the film. You are free to alter a scene as you wish or need to, depending on the capacities we have in SL to realize such settings. Just, the TITANIC film didn’t play in a forest and the TERMINATOR never visited a baroque palais setting. Other than that you are only limited to your own imagination, creativity and possibilities. Premade backdrop scenes are allowed. You may want to avoid green- respectively white screen settings for the picture.
  • Choose an editorial pose that shows your outfit well and matches the character of your actor and the scene, your favorite quote originates from.
  • Take a picture of your styling, with the chosen pose, in the scene. You must take your own picture.
  • You are allowed to enhance your picture with Photoshop or other editing software.

  • Upload your picture to Flickr and add it to the MR SL 2018 group.
  • The title of your picture must be: MR SL ♛ (your country) 2018 – First Photo Challenge ; e.g.: MR SL ♛ France 2018 – First Photo Challenge
  • Write in your picture description, what your favorite quote is, from who and from which film it is. (maybe add a link to a video clip of the scene, if available – optional)
  • Please describe, why this is your favorite quote.
  • Finally, add a complete credit list to your description or add a link to a post on your blog, where the credits are listed.

Nigel Kipling (Stanley Tucci) in The Devil wears Prada (2006)

Your picture must be submit to the MR SL 2018 Flickr group, properly titled and with the complete description and credits, until Thursday, October 19th, at 12:00 PM SLT.

We are looking forward for your submissions and wish all candidates much fun, success and luck with this first photo challenge. Please know, that you can use the MISS SL Pageant group and the pageant or general channel in the MISS SL Organization Discord server, if you need help, have questions, concerns or problems.

The second RUNWAY CHALLENGE will get posted on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 12:00 PM SLT.

Kind Regards

MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 – The Grand Finale – Introduction

Hello dear candidates,

it is not much time anymore until the finale of the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant! We are very excited and look forward to organize the very first YoungStar finale for and with you.

WELCOME TO LONDON

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale will be ‘situated’ in one of the most exciting capitals of the world, in London. The 2000 years old city is popular as a multicultural melting pot, from where newest trends spread over the world quickly. Many movements and streams originate from ideas born by creative minds from or in London. The global city London is not only the home to the royal family or numerous of leading museums but the epicenter of many cultural branches like art, entertainment, music and certainly fashion, too.

Many Youth Cultures have found their vastness in all variations and colors in the streets of London, tolerated and welcomed by the liberal and cosmopolitan minded London citizens.

In our first trip to London we pay tribute to the titles, that you have chosen for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar pageant, as London is also the place in many books,  films and songs. Ready to depart from the King’s Cross Station’s 9 3/4 platform?

The Title Costumes

The Title Costume challenge in the YoungStar pageant is similar to the National Costume walks, that you would see in other pageants. You have chosen a fictional place from literature, film or music for your pageant title and in the title costume challenge you are asked to represent this place from your title. It is the challenge, in which you need to showcase your creativity and ability to think ‘outside of the box’.

Thinking outside of the box does mean, that you create a one-of-a-kind mix and match styling, to incorporate the theme that stands for your title. To represent i.e. Hogwarts and to wear a magician cloak and holding a wand in the hand may just not be enough.

With your title costume, you have unique ability to tell a story on the runway, using all your imagination and creative skills to express yourself.

Do not be fooled by the term ‘costume’. The Title Costume challenge is not a carnival, but a parade of culture, in which you represent a certain fan base or more even, a community. If you are not taking your title serious in the way you represent it in the pageant, you may be upsetting those, who are identifying as fans. Extensive research and your love to the detail will make your title costume the oustanding and unique styling that lets you represent your title worthy and inspiring to others.

In the Title Costume challenge you may go wild with your posing as well, you may use expressive up to articstic borderline poses, but you may want to make sure, to follow standards that still apply also for this challenge.

  • Check your hover height, always – you cannot hover or fly on our runway, not even if you are a magician.
  • Your poses should not stretch or break the fabric or textures of your clothing
  • Hair and body parts should not go into the clothing or into other body parts
  • Make sure, that accessories are properly attached, in particular those you are holding in your hands, but in general also.

Summer in London

This is our fashion challenge, in which you can showcase your sense for style and trends. We’re returning to nowadays London and more explicit in the summer months. You are a tourist in the City of London and all you know is, that London’s weather is very inconsistent with rain and clouds also at the height of summer. The question what to wear to come dry through a day is almost not to answer, the only way is to be prepared for all possibilities.

Style as a tourist, that goes out to visit the historic sites of London. Of course you don’t want to attract negative attention to the British people by looking like a cave man or women with white socks in sandals or leggings that let your legs look like sausages. To discover all the luxury stores in Knightsbridge or Saint James, to go into a bar in Soho or to  discover the landmarks of Westminster you may want to dress CASUAL CHIC and up with the trends of the current summer 2017.

You must use at least one color in your clothing, that is not black, white, gray, beige or blue. Accessoires, Jewelry, Hair and nails do not count for colors.

Your accessoires may be that of a tourist, but hold right there. As mentioned before, the weather in London is rather unpredictable, so you may be prepared for the case it`s getting colder or rainy during the day.

Show us, how you prepare for the unsteady weather for a day in London. Be careful if you are i.e. carrying an umbrella… it’s not very handy when taking the crowded tube and it’s quite a challenge to pose on runway with as well, because you must avoid that your accessoires break into your clothing or body parts. Or maybe it’s a stylish hat that helps you not to get wet if it rains, make sure that the hat does not cover your face.

And right at the end of the day, you will return to the hotel to get ready for the

Prom Night

The prom night is the event of the year, a formal occasion, to finish the (school) year, for which you will don yourself into the best attire, luxurious and elegant. It is the event, in which you shine bright and where you are the star. Obviously, it is also the highlight of the MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant, perhaps resulting into your coronation as MISS or MR SL YoungStar 2017, hence you may want to make sure to look stylish, flawless and perfect for the occasion.

Prom Dress Code

(copied from a catholic school, please ask if you have a question about)

  • Dresses may be strapless (if they fit properly) or include spaghetti straps.
  • Dresses may be backless, as long as they are not cut below the naval.
  • 2-piece dresses MUST overlap at the waist: meaning top MUST overlap with skirt waistband.
  • Midriffs will not be exposed. This includes both front and side. With arms down at your side, if skin touches skin, the dress is inappropriate.
  • Dresses may not have a slit that exceeds mid-thigh. This is fingertip length.
  • Dresses may not be cut below the bust line.
  • Undergarments should not be visible. See-through apparel is not permitted.
  • Garments that are tight or low-cut are also unacceptable.

  • Gentlemen, you are expected to wear formal attire. Formal prom attire may be classified as a tuxedo or dress suit, including a tie or bow tie, a dress shirt, which may include a vest or cummerbund, and dress shoes.
  • Shirts are to be worn at all times.
  • Tennis shoes and athletic shoes are unacceptable.

For the finale

Once every candidate has presented their prom styling, all candidates need to give an answer (shout into local chat) to question, that will be given to you in the rehearsals before the finale. All receive the same question. You have then time until the finale to prepare your answer.

In the following Question & Answer rounds with the top rated candidates, you will receive an individual question asked live by a present judge, which you need to formulate while you are on the stage. If you require translation from English to your native language, you must bring your own interpreter.

The Question & Answer round repeats if we are narrowing the the top scored to a top 3 for the selected candidates.

After we will announce the winners, MISS and MR SL YoungStar 2017.

For all challenges

  • You require for each challenge outfit a different walk, suitable for your styling, a default pose and a pose set of each approximately 40 seconds. (3 outfits = 3 walks, 3 default poses, 3 pose sets)
  • Please do not repeat a walk or a pose in two or more challenges.
  • You are required to submit a styling description for all three finale outfits. The styling descriptions get submit via a form on our website. The required information will be sent to you on Monday, July 24th personally in a notecard.
  • The styling description must contain a credit list, containing all elements that you have used for your styling, incl. the brand/designer name.
  • The styling descriptions must be submit by Thursday, July 27th, 12:00 p.m. SLT LATEST.
  • The participation in one of the rehearsals on Friday, July 28th – 10:00 a.m. SLT or 05:00 p.m. – is mandatory. The finale event is to complex to walk without rehearsal.
  • You must come to the finale venue after Saturday, July 29th 12:00 a.m. and rezz all three outfits and play all poses and walks, to store all information into the sim cache. This will minimize potential lag significantly and the judges as well as the audience will be able to see you without rezzing issues.

I hope, that you are as much excited for the pageant as we are. We are well aware of the effort that you put into your participation and and do hope, you will enjoy yourself and the event. Even though, at the end of the finale, we only will have two winners styled with a title, MISS and MR SL YoungStar 2017, we strongly believe, that you all are winners already by taking up on the challenge to participate. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the finale, please do not hesitate but let us know!

The date and time(s) for the ‘Meet and Greet’ event will be announced soon in the pageant group. We are likely to schedule two events to cover your different timezones.

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale – Welcome to London – event is scheduled for Saturday, July 29, to begin at 10:00 a.m. SLT and open for public.

I wish you all good luck and much fun!

MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 – Picture Challenge “Back to School”

Hello candidates to the MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 Pageant. We hope you are all well and up for the challenges to come. Before we reveal the styling themes for the Grand Finale to you, we want to distract you a little, with a picture challenge. Please know, that a picture challenge is voluntary for the participation in the pageant, but it allows you to gain a few extra points towards your final competition scores.

Source: Pinterest

In our picture challenge we want you to imagine, that you go back to school (or college) the first day after the summer holidays again. The first day of the new session clearly is an exciting one, where we get to meet our friends again, where new students join classes, new teacher get introduced and eventually you have made yourself the promise to succeed this time better than in the previous year. Of course, you want to show yourself to everyone from your best side, recovered and fresh from the holidays, some beach tan, a new hair dress, these fancy shoes that everyone wants to have and surely a little more grown than before the holidays. It’s the day to dress and impress.

 

Source: https://www.pinterest.de/ELLE_Germany/

We ask to style an outfit that you would want to wear for one of this first school days after the holidays and to take a photography of it, in any way you see fit. That may include a decorated scene, which supports your outfit (i.e.  a classroom) but does not have to. The focus in the picture has to be your clothing. A fashion (blog) photography makes only sense, if details of the clothing are recognizable. If you wish to edit the picture with photoshop or other software, please make sure not to overprocess the colors and fabrics of your outfit with unnecessary filters.

  • Your picture must have a least size of 1024×1024 pixels. Fashion photographer and social media experts do recommend pictures ratio of 4:3 (i.e. 2048 px wide x 1536 px high) or 3:4, to photograph a complete scene a ratio of 16:9 or 16:10 may be required.
  • Upload your picture to your Flickr account and add it to the YoungStar group. You must be member of the group, to be able to add pictures.
  • Give your picture the title as following: MISS (or MR) SL ♛ (your title) – Back to School – Picture Challenge, e.g. MR SL ♛ Hogwarts 2017 – Back to School – Picture Challenge.
  • Add to your description a detailed credit list or a link to a post on your own blog, if you have one, where all credits are listed.
  • You may add more than one picture to the group, but please be aware, that your last submit picture, that is labeled as  “- Back to School – Picture Challenge” will be taken as submission for the judges.

Your picture must be submit by Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 until 12:00 p.m. SLT. Five independent judges will review your pictures for the quality, focus, scene, overall impression. The picture must be a photography taken by yourself. It is not allowed to submit a photography done by anyone other but yourself.

 

Source: https://www.pinterest.de/source/lookbook.nu/

The judges will give 1-10 points for each picture they review. The amount of points given to one picture gets divided through five (number of judges) and multiplied by three, to receive the score that will be added to your competition score ahead the Grand Finale. The result of the judges scoring will be disclosed within the finale.

Please note:

  • We may ask you kindly to refrain from manga inspired ‘lolita school uniform’ looks. This is not a challenge to make old men drooling over lollipop sucking cute girls, or boys.
  • Our judges panel are experienced photography and social media experts, who will not measure your photography based on faves or groups you add your Flickr picture to.
  • Please know, that even if you feel, that your photography skills are not that far yet, everyone has begun at some point and our judges too. They are able to recognize and will acknowledge your effort with their scoring. Please don’t be afraid to show your picture with a screenshot to our team or me in a personal IM before upload and we may give you advise, how to improve, if necessary.
  • You may post your picture to other social networks and blogs, please make sure to refer to your Flickr upload and the picture challenge.
  • Please do not use logos from any brand, organization or event in your picture.

We wish you much fun with this styling and photography challenge and look forward to see your submissions.

Good Luck!

Also,  the above list indicates the walk order for the Grand Finale, but depending on the sequence of events within the pageant, we may or may not reverse the walk order, if we see required.

For all finalists, please do take note, that we are scheduling a ‘greet and meet’ event for you, a picture challenge (voluntary) and three final challenges (mandatory). This amount of challenges is required in order to receive a representable scoring and hence result. We will post all information in the pageant group, beginning tomorrow, in the order that we see necessary to make it easy, fun and not overwhelming for you.

I want to thank everyone, who have put their energy and support for the YoungStar pageant so far, foremost all my partner Hikaru, who has helped me to realize the runway idea for this second audition. Special thanks we may extend to Spiked Land Holdings, who have generously offered us their land to use. We offer our deepest gratitude to all our sponsors for this new pageant, whose support is so crucial for the success of our events. We do hope to meet your expectations with your sponsorship.

Always and ever I will be grateful for the hard work, that the #MISSSLOhana team put into this audition, as well as for all events. Their full dedication and commitment are the key to a flawless and perfect event organization. We do thank our guest hostess, Stormy Somerton, for taking up on the challenge to host for us her first runway show ever and may assure her, that everyone was extremely pleased with her performance.

I am kind of blown away by the massive positive feedback, that we have received since we announced the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant. While I am quite aware of the sensitivity that the question of the apparent or assumed ‘avatar age’ comes with, I am even more confident with all the kind and supporting comments to my team, by and to the candidates and to me, that we will establish the YoungStar pageant annually.

It is a great joy to see the social networks filling with pictures by our audience from our events and so some have shared their pictures from this second audition too:

Once again, thanks to everyone for their tremendous support. We are looking forward now, to prepare the MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 finale. Because our YoungStars have deserved no less, we will use all our energies, to make it just as grand and exciting as our previous events, too!

The MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017 Grand Finale is scheduled for July 29, 2017, to begin at 10:00 a.m. SLT.

MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 – Title Assignment

In yesterday’s first audition for the new MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant. we had 8 aspirants walking the runway in their Anime Fashion inspired styling. We believe that the judges did not have an easy task to decide for each individual aspirant, if they should become official finalist for the pageant. All of the aspirants have been eager and determined to show their inspiration, their creativity and their talent just beautifully and all together is has been a fabulous show, one we will remember long.

Even happier we were, when we learned, that every of the aspirants got enough votes from the judges to enter the competition as finalists. We have concluded yesterday’s meeting after the audition with the submissions of fictional places, the finalists want to choose for their pageant title. The titles get assigned by first come first serve basis and so they did not wait but submit their choices very quickly.

As result we are very happy to announce all 8 finalists officially with their title, in alphabetical order by their chosen and assigned title:

MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant 2017 – The search is on!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The MISS and MR SL Pageants have developed to be the most watched styling competition in the last years and we are happily carrying out our aim to raise the bar for each new round again. But while doing so, we think that we miss out on a large part of our community, in which we happen to see many exceptional talents with bold, edgy and unique styling ideas. Those, who are not sporting the avatar “sizes” and “ages” that we consider to be “standard” within the modeling industry, are largely left out from opportunities to showcase their ideas to a wider audience, but blogging.

Many have asked us in the past to think about approaches for different smaller competitions under the aegis of MISS SL Organization, knowing our aim for fairness and openness. Most of this ideas just cannot get realized due to the lack of time, since the MISS and MR SL pageants occupy already most of our annual agenda.

We would like to use the free summer months to open a new competition, aimed to invite those with “younger” or “smaller” appearing avatars, who believe that they have skills and talent, to style their avatars in ways that it may inspire everyone. As in all MISS and MR SL pageants, we are continuously looking for Beauty, Creativity and Talent, but this time breaking the standards and therefor call for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant, the application is open now.

The MISS & MR SL YoungStar Pageant invites those with an apparent or assumed age of 13 – 25 to join our styling competition to become the first YoungStar of MISS SL Organization. While we do understand, that age and size are relative terms for avatars and are aware of the different perspectives in that matter as well as of the controversies that some are confronted with, we do believe and trust to find some exceptional talents within this group of avatars, that we normally would not see on Second Life runways.

“I do beg pardon, but this is not a child contest… it`s a styling competition for those, who appear to be teenagers and young adults. In my travels through Second Life I see so many that are exceptional stylists, but never would consider about modeling in any way, because of the standards that are common for runway modeling in our community. I would be happy, if we can provide a platform to those talents too” – Marcus Lefevre, 2017

The search for MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 starts today and we have scheduled two auditions. After the two auditions we will select official finalists for the MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017 Pageant, which is scheduled for July 29, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. SLT. The entry conditions, the application as well as the entire schedule can be seen here.

Before and between the two auditions we will invite the aspirants for workshops to provide basic tools they may require for an unstressful and flawless performance and hope that it may encourage some to join the competition, who otherwise would not.

We may invite you for a new, fabulous celebration of Beauty, Creativity and Talent, MISS & MR SL YoungStar 2017, and look forward for your application and for an exciting journey ahead!

MISS SL 2017 – The Fifth Runway Challenge – The Golden 1920’s

Source: Glamourdaze

Hello Ladies,

In the last of the regular runway challenges, we are doing a quick time travel and hope, that you will enjoy.

We will celebrate the golden 1920’s in our next challenge. The 20’s are often described as the “roaring” 20’s. After the devastating years of the first world war people seeked to break out of the limits and one tool certainly was fashion.

The 1920s was an era of dramatic changes in fashion; women shocked their men, dress seams rose and  and the twenties flapper style came up. Makeup became popular and the hairstyles became shorter. The notorious flapper girl is known by all and the short sleek hair, above the knee straight shift dress and the boyish figure will never fail to be remembered.

The iconic flapper style didn’t debut quite yet, but the androgynous look was the complete opposite of the previous ladylike from the decades before.The ‘boyish bob’ and the ‘garconne frock’ were staple fashion phrases. The classic flapper girl wore a short shapeless shift dress, short sleek hair. The flapper demonstrated her rebellious style by wearing makeup and playfully applying it in public. She was seen brandishing cigarette holders and exposing her limbs while dancing unrestrictedly in the clubs.

A more sleek and sophisticated look was adopted in the 1920s. Thin spaghetti straps were worn to create a revealing and sexy look. The shift style drop dress was worn by flappers. With no waist, the dress was relatively easy to make at home, allowing the middle class women to blend in with the highly fashionable upper class. The chemise style dress was also worn, usually adorned for dancing to jazz. With the waist disappearing and the bust suppressed a narrow boyish silhouette was preferred. The hair got shorter, curves were eliminated and the line became more simplified.

Accessories were a key part of the 1920s look. The accessories were extravagant, big and opulent. Taken from the art deco and Egyptian style, beaded bags, feather boas and embellished head bands were the accessory of choice for evening. Pearls were a staple accessory encouraged by the designer Coco Chanel. Her simplistic outfits were always seen dressed up with strings of pearls. Women were now been seen smoking in public making cigarette holders and cases an added statement of good style. At the beginning of the twenties women’s shoes still had a pointed toe but were gradually becoming more rounded. Around the mid Twenties the Cuban style and Mary Jane style of shoe gained increasing popularity. The shoes were seen as ‘high heels’ for the era, however, only reaching around two inches. Hats were a popular women’s accessory during this period. They created a simple and elegant look. In the early part of the decade simple hats with brims were worn, later on the rimless cloche hat became fashionable mid twenties. The hat was only wearable with a short and flat hairstyle due to the close fitting design. With the hat pulled over the eyes, the style effected ladies posture as it was necessary for them to tilt their heads upwards in order to see.

MISS SL 2017 – The Fourth Runway Challenge – La Dulce Vida

Hello dear candidates,

we know, that you are excited to know the fourth runway challenge. This challenge is thought by MISS SL 2016, Ivyana Szondi, in her function as reigning MISS SL and MISS SL Agency CEO, to follow the tradition of a challenge, that is initiated by the MISS SL Agency Managment. MISS SL Agency houses only the best models available in our community, winners and top scored candidates from previous MISS and MR SL pageants or hand selected by the MISS SL Organizaion board of directors and MISS SL Agency Management.

We do hope, that the challenge triggers your creativity and that we will be able to see some very outstanding styling ideas on our runway. Here`s Ivyana`s description:

“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”
-Ernestine Ulmer

In the ‘La Dulce Vida’ – Challenge , the candidates will indulge their sweet tooth! This idea was inspired by the collections of the fabulous designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Each candidate will create an haute couture styling based on a dessert from their country. A dessert that is common in your country, but originates from another, is also allowed. This can be achieved by creatively using the dessert in your styling or by putting items together that resemble the dessert of your choice. The Pantone color chart for Spring/Summer 2017 trends can be used, if it makes sense with your look, but remains optional. We would like this to be a head-to-toe styling. Every element in your styling, from your hair to your shoes, should embody this challenge.

In your description, please include information about the dessert you have chosen and why you choose this dessert. Your description will reflect your research efforts for this challenge.

We have provided a Pinterest board for your inspiration. You are not limited to these examples.

Posing for this challenge will be purely artistic/borderline editorial. The candidates should still adhere to the basics of runway posing.

  • Feet must not be off the ground (check your hover height, always)
  • Poses should not stretch or break the fabric of your clothing
  • Hair and body parts should not go into the clothing
  • When holding an item, be sure that your movements are natural (e.g. A person would not hold a bag in midair)

We thank Ivyana for this very exciting and interesting challenge. While we are sure, that it may appear though at the first glance, we do hope that the challenge may expand your horizons and triggers your creativity to realize a styling. Please know, you do require at least one pose set for a 40 seconds lasting stop, but we will let you know, how many stops you need to have prepared, by Monday, April 3.

Your styling description needs to be submit and received by Friday, April 7, 12:00 PM SLT. Rehearsals for the fourth runway challenge are scheduled for April 7, 10:00 AM and 05:00 PM SLT. You are required to attend at least one rehearsal to be eligible to walk this challenge.

The fourth runway challenge is scheduled for April 8, 10:00 AM SLT and will be open for public. Audience invitations will be sent 2 hours prior to show begin in our inworld group.

Good Luck!
