Modeling Contests

Here is a nice post over on the Second Style Fashionista blog, detailing all of the modeling contests and links to get more information.

First, Style Guru and Second Style columnist Isabella Sampaio has revealed the 20 competitors (and 3 alternative participants) for her Miss SL Tropics contest. The winner will be crowned at a pageant that will take place at noon SLT on August 26, 2007 (when I will be at SLCC, alas.) You can see close up head shots of the 20 lucky finalists on Isabella’s blog post here. Good luck to all of the models. Source: Who’s the fiercest of them all?
