Organized by Beth Model Management Limited in conjunction with Upfront and Personal Global Management Consultants, the Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria team is thrilled to reveal the 24 finalists for the 2017 competition. These young models will compete for the opportunity to live their dreams while following in the footsteps of international supermodels like Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bundchen, as well as Nigerian top models like Mayowa Nicholas, Victor Ndigwe and Davidson Obennebo whose journeys started with Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria.
The national casting for the 2017 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria took place in Lagos on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 at the Eko Hotel and Suites with over 1000 young aspiring models in attendance. A total of 100 contestants were pre-selected and had their images sent to the Elite Management in Paris for final selection.
The semi-finals will have the 24 selected models undergo a unique experience supervised by a team of professionals at the Aquafina Elite Model Look boot camp. The models will be accommodated at the boot camp for 7 days up to the date of the final event. 4 contestants will be eliminated at the boot camp. The 20 models who will go on to the final event will be selected based on their natural beauty, photogenic quality, poise, personality, attitude & character.
Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria is unique in providing a launching pad for young boys and girls to enter the fashion world and build fabulous modelling careers. Last year’s winner, Davidson Obennebo went on to win the Elite Model Look world finale and is the first African to win in 33 years, making history as the first black model win the competition and is still considered to be a new face in the industry.
