Applying the same successful Elite formula for scouting in Singapore, the Elite Model Look Casting Team conducted a Live Castings tour in Singapore malls and selected, from the hundreds who attended, 48 girls and 22 boys to participate in the National Casting. Held at the magnificent Fullerton Bay Hotel, the selection was further narrowed down to 12 girls and 7 boys, who will take the ultimate step of the Elite Model Look Singapore contest and participate in the Grand Final on Nov 9th at the Hard Rock Coliseum, in world-renowned Resorts World Sentosa.
A very special Elite Model Look journey has been planned to prepare our 19 finalists for the Grand Final and to introduce them to the modeling universe. It includes:
• Makeup and skincare workshops conducted by Make Up Store and Pro-Academy • “Re-looking”
• Catwalk training and posing techniques by Gnossem
