The Early Stages Of The Elite Model Look Casting

As the models were arriving, they were required to write their names at the entrance. There was a long ques really and it seemed the queue was never going to come to an end. As a scout of The Elite Model Look Casting I was assigned to control the traffic of models and make sure they wrote their names in the proper places.

Measurements And The First stage

A lot of models had their heart broken as they did not reach the required height for a fashion model. As a result, they had no choice but to leave, those that scaled through however got to go upstairs where the real casting was. All they had to do was walk to where the judges were and if they were impressed, the models got shortlisted.

The shortlisted Models with their Aquafina-Elite Model Look t-shirts had to walk again, accordingly, the good performers with strong looks were picked, but it wasn’t over yet. At any rate, the Models had to show that they had clear skins, after all, a model’s skin has to be clear. So they took to their bikini and they flaunted their skin. It was a sight to behold really.

To cut the story short 50 models were shortlisted as the semi-finalists and Davidson, The winner of Elite Model Look Nigeria 2016 and Elite Model Look World 2016 made an appearance. Consequently, he was a source of moral support for the contesting models and he answered so many of their questions.
