Aimee, Barbara, Gani and Monika will be donning fashion styles through the eras and with Kenneth Goh, the Editor-In-Chief of the magazine himself observing the shoot and joining the panel, the girls need to step up their A-game if they want to be part of the series’ finale.

The four girls went directly to their go-sees. Kenneth Goh thought Barbara lacks confidence which is her main issue (the girl has been a working model for a long time it’s a wonder why she still lacks self-confidence). The casting includes clients from Pois and Liv Lo, Braun Buffel and Triumph with Barbara and Gani getting the worst critiques from both clients and Kenneth.

As expected, Monika won this go-see challenge – reliable model right? And she got prizes from the clients and wanna know who’s hating?? hahaha

At the photoshoot, the rest of the girls struggles a lot while trying to depict fashion styles from different era. I’m honestly not liking this shoot much and I hope they would re-shoot it whoever wins. By gods, it’s totally not working!

At panel, the judges are trying to analyze the models’ potentials.

Gani Ayu

The best photo went to Gani (garnering her third first call out in the season) – now the question is, will this be a repeat of season 2 and will Gani overcome the panel’s criticism about being of a short stature?

Monika Sta. Maria

Monika took second best photo with Kenneth Goh envisioning her doing well in the European market. Is this an indication for a win and a possible trip to London for Monika in the future? I hope so.

Aimee Bradshaw

The third girl to advance in next week’s final episode is Aimee! I loved Aimee and like Georgina said, I also think that she’s the smartest model in the house.

Barbara Katsuki

Barbara loses her steam for the final stretch in the competition. It’s a sad thing really for her to leave the competition – like she’s almost there. But hey, good things comes for those who waits. I’m pretty sure, a lot of great things are ahead of her future! (it’s like you never stopped working at all) Keep the cash rollin’ girl!

With Barbara leaving us…who do you think will claim victory next Wednesday?

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 3 Episode 3 – Makeovers and Photoshoot

The episode this week was all about transformation, attitude and lots of tears from girls who are more worried with their hair than staying one more week in the competition.

Pre Makeover Cast

My personal favorite transformation are from Melissa, Aimee and Chesca – gah – Melissa’s exceptionally gorgeous this episode I feel like she should just get the title this early…LOL but yeah – we’ll have to wait and see…

At the photoshoot, the girls wore diamonds – some of them were like diamonds in the sky and some simply couldn’t make the cut.

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 3 – Episode 1 Photoshoot (The Girl In A Spin)

Bias aside, I think Amanda totally killed this shoot! I'm so inlove with it!!!!

Bias aside, I think Amanda totally killed this shoot! I’m so in love with it!!!!

The first episode saw the the fourteen lucky hopefuls settled into their new house. They then meet with host Georgina and fellow judge Joey to evaluate their runway walk which will be part of their very first challenge. As per Top Model outrageous tradition, the girls were asked to walk the runway with a turn table at the end. Barbara (JPN) won the runway challenge although the judges were unanimous about Monika’s runway prowess. (just gotta get that out yeah? home girl and all LOL) Their first shoot was a swimsuit shoot where the youngest contestant Amanda from the Philippines easily stood out from the rest along with Barbara and Monika. Meanwhile, Shareeta (so gorg btw) struggled so much which led to her untimely demise on the show >a bit extreme I know< but I really loved the girl and thought that she’d go so far!!!! Too bad really!!!

Barbara

Barbara

I loved the proportion of her body although I was a bit distracted by the angle of her face. This was a beautiful shot overall.

Monika

Monika

The girl whom the judges thought was born for runway! I couldn’t agree more. Loved this shot but found her waist too thin! Still, that face! that face!

Tahlia

Tahlia

I’m not really a fan of this shot but I loved her face so I’m okay with her position so far.

Gani Ayu

Gani Ayu

Gawd! You gotta love that Asian flavor! Not my favorite shot in the bunch but I so love her oriental beauty!

Aimee

Aimee

I’m not that impressed with her facial expression here but the neck below was almost perfect!

Loretta

Loretta

This one though reminds me of an underwear catalog from Avon – dunnowhy?

KB

KB

This for some reason reminds me so much of a GUESS? ads!

Chesca

Chesca

Gaaahhh. I don’t understand this one. It’s too pedestrian.

Melissa

Melissa

A wee bit cliche yeah? Remember Anamaria from America’s Next Top Model Cycle15?

Kiana

Kiana

I actually loved this shot!! The feel is very “Tropical” and I loved the contour of her body. What drag this down though was her eyes. Too bad really.

Rani

Rani

Not exactly a good shot of her – proportions were off and the styling. Just tsk.

Celine

Celine

Great face. Lacks inspiration.

Shareeta

Shareeta

As much as I loved the beauty of this girl, I just have to agree with the judges. It’s the weakest photo in the bunch. I won’t be blaming it all to Shareeta though. I thought her styling overall does not suit her.

In Focus: Alexander McQueen

It’s been exactly 10 months since Alexander McQueen’s body was found hanged at his home in London. A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss.  Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!

Karlie Kloss

A Few Things About Lee:


He was awarded “British Designer of the Year” four times!

Camilla Belle

He was the creative Director of GUCCI.

Rihanna

He was the head designer of GIVENCHY from 1996-2001.

Katie Holmes

He was discovered by Isabella Blow who also committed suicide in 2007.

Lady Gaga

His patrons includes Lady Gaga, Camilla Belle, Katie Holmes and Rihanna to name a few.

His creations will be immortalized next year at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that will stage Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.

He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing – from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss. – Anna Wintour

Local magazine, PREVIEW also paid their tribute on their 15th anniversary issue last June with model Georgina Wilson wearing recreations of McQueen’s most iconic looks.
