Classic With Style is growing fast, they added a new sim by popular demand, and grand opening will takes place soon. Anrol continue announcing that CWS is the num 1 Blog in SL. Yes, it's true coz i keep on browsing CWS blog everyday. If you wish to visit their blogs, I attached one of the link,
http://classicwstyle.blogspot.com/. They have 6000's visitors and more than 500 members linked to CWS blog. Oh, what a great number.
Anrol reminds the spectators to tune in and prohibit from voice chatting during the finale, in order to hear the live announcement of amazing DJ/ Emcee Wildrose. She added to remove scripted items that can help to lessen the lag.
The most awaited moment was about to begin. Anrol greets and welcome all of us. Anrol captioned, "Greetings, Everybody, and Welcome to the final event for the Ms Top Model Pageant. Tonight we will be giving away more than 200,000 lindens prizes, "YES" more than two hundred forty five thousand lindens. Most of you probably know me, but for those who don't, my name is Anrol Anthony and I'm the CEO of Classic w/Style. Also let me introduce my partner -- a loving and hardworking husband -- Steve101 Mccullough the CEO here at Classic W/ Style" . Awww, so sweet of her. Before the program proceed, she make a few announcement and remind again the spectators to remove some scripted stuff and refrain from voice chatting during the event. Anrol and Steve was thankful to all CWS staffs who work hard and dedicate themselves to be an inspiration by countless people. They are grateful for the amity they have for a lifetime.
I heard several applauses from the spectators, when Anrol quoted "all our finalists in this pageant have had the opportunity to learn the finer points of modeling and stagecraft." CWS is truly awesome. While Debbieboo screamed "lag is a models best friend" makes me laughs. Debbie is a funny person to be with. Anrol continue to quote " Our regular contests have given each of our finalists the opportunity for countless practice sessions -- honing their craft the only way that matters -- on the stage in front of the judges. Today, marks the culmination of work and months of dedication to the art of modeling for these finalists. The she introduce the judges. "Before we meet our contestants, let me take a moment to introduce our 3 judges who hold fates in the palms of their avs. Our judges will give our top finalists from 1 to 10 score and ten is the highest score."
The judges are well familiar about on how to judge on each category. Anrol introduce the first judge, Ms Lillou Merlin, a woman in pink gown an i chatted with her a little bit. It's a pleasure meeting and knowing her. She is approachable and fun to talk with. " Ms Lillous Merlin One of the greatest designers in SecondLife. Binging the gap from real life artisan to second life fashion designer came very naturally for Ms Merlin. She love the outfits of so many real work fashion designers, that she can't name one particular favorite. In Second Life, she finds that there are too many wonderful creators to name just one. She love the diversity of styles here. Anrol introduces the 2nd judge, Ms Harleybeth28 Amoufhaz, she was been their friend since they started sl. Ms. Harley been in SL for 4 years. She co-own DIA Photography with Kyra Ishtari and CEO of DIA MODEL INC. She loves building, scripting, and whatever is thrown to her and she will take the challenge and do her best I as she can . She belong to the Golden Heron League and the Open Gates Support community, these two groups were developed to help the mentally and physically challenged that she have joined her family in SL. It gives them the opportunity to be able to feel part of the SL family. She offer her knowledge and support to anyone that needs help or she's there to just listen to them when they are down about anything and everything in SL or RL. Wonderful, lucky to be Ms. harley's friend. Anrol further quotes " In that thing we call RL, she is a 46 yrs young single mother of two beautiful girls and one loving but trying boy with special needs, we live in upstate NY. She work as a teachers asst. in helping autistic children. She have been working with autistic children for 15 years and love her job entirely. She do a lot of charity work with my biker family, these charities are usually for children or families in need. She have love to ride and build harleys, and have been in many cross country rides. To sum it up she is a very open, honest, and loving person in both worlds (sl & rl) and try to live each to its fullest. The 3rd Judge is Ms Sage Pixie. Oh, applauses fills the dome. Sage has been in SL for almost 2 years, building her brand and sim. Her style is sophisticated but always sexy and fun. She tries to create designs which are accessible...so the SL Women can go and do anything without breaking her bank. She is innovative, bringing most everything that women needs to her shop and island. Hard work is her approach as she designs new releases more than weekly and has wonderful clothing for the beach or the ball. Sage always has discounts and games to make the "experience" fun . She focuses her efforts on her sim but her brand is sold on several of SL's best known retail spots. Sage's red hair is an indication of the fire in her soul which drives her to make SL more fun for everyone
Again Anrol announces to those who will blog the event, she makes sure to send an application. Two bloggers will be chosen and will win 5000L each. Geeee, my hands are shaking, and hushed up to blog the said event. Who knows, i might win. (giggles)
The event started. Applauses and cheers to the contestants makes my eardrums to explode. (laughs). The first event in today's pageant is the Swimwear competition and the Theme is 1960's. Each contestant has been asked to create a look of their own -- and based on something that inspires or moves them -- and to present it to us. In addition, they have written an explanation of the outfit and what it means to them. Anrol clarifies that all the information being copy paste on the local chat are exactly the same note what was written. She also send notes to the judges for their reference and the basis for the finalist score to score them from 1 to 10. The names and categories been organized. Anrol instructed the judges to save the score before sending her the copy of score in every event together with the comments.
The pageant begins and Anrol call out the 3rd Place Finalists Mr Reese Shawbridge. Applauses and cheers rocks the dome when Mr. Shawbridge comes out.
Anrol called the next finalsit Ms. Sunrae Suntzu. Her Second Life began on 11-27-2005. There are many things she enjoys about SL but her favorites are modeling, shopping, talking to people from all over the world and listening to live singers. Sunrae's modeling career began in February 2010. She had never considered modeling, but just kind of fell into it. She received a group notice from Classic with Style fashion that noted they offer free training in modeling, so she contacted them and began a line of questions that ultimately led to her attending their university. Their grooming paid off. After she graduated she begin entering contest which escalated into more opportunities, including fashion shows, photography and other styling and modeling. She says to become successful in the modeling universe models have to have certain accomplishments in nature and nurture. Natural accomplishments merely have to be trimmed and fostered, but nurtured accomplishments have to be fixed and insisted into the mind through habits and actions done on a regular basis. She has accomplished these two streams through a combination of poise, very careful precision, good style and ongoing training. Her most significant love for modeling is doing pageant competitions and she is the crown winner of the Ms Hollywood 2011 pageant and has placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in other pageants. She also enjoys doing fashion shows and photo modeling. In addition to modeling she and her partner own a live music venue and they also breed and sell horses. Her avatar selection was based on general physical attributes such as height, body shape, facial features, and color of the eyes and hair, and skin tone. She designed her avatar to have an appearance of beauty, elegance and poise. Her Swimwear outfit: Style 1960's bikini. In 1960 Brian Hyland's #1 hit song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" inspired a bikini buying spree. The market couldn't put them out fast enough. Even though not as risky as those of today, the bikini rage moved young women from the more modest swimwear to a more revealing bikini, and polka dots were popular. The song is about a very shy girl wearing a revealing polka dot bikini to the beach. She is afraid to leave the locker where she has changed into her bikini, then she makes it to the beach but sits on the sand wrapped in a blanket and she finally goes into the ocean, but is too afraid to come out and stays immersed in the water despite the fact that she's turning blue. Sunrae says she isn't sure why a girl would buy a bikini that she is too embarrassed to wear, but not her; she flaunts her yellow polka dot bikini. This bikini is sexy, even if it does date back to the sixties. Sunrae's itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini is by designer Iota Ultsch of Tres Jolie. The bikini bottom is typical of the sixties, falling below the naval, at the hip. The bikini top is trimmed with a bow in front and fastens with a slip clasp in the back. She digs this bikini because it makes a bold fashion statement and it stands apart from the others on the beach, and yellow looks fab with her boss tan. And isn't this 60's flip hairdo by Sebass Easterwood groovy? She styles her yellow polka dot bikini with a hip sun hat from D&T designs. These far out canvas yellow polka dot sneakers are by Jinkies. (pic not uploaded because Sunrae's hair is not completely rezzed.)
|Ms. Top Model 2012, Ms. Janet Brink|
The next finalsit is Ms. Janet Brink. Janet Brink entered Second Life January 14, 2007 skin and hair was still in it's infancy, everyone was hoping for improvements. Her early days were spent learning everything she could about building, she created wonderful, realistic castles, villas, and a second life scaled model of Chateau Chenonceau, complete with interior details. One day a friend told her about modeling, so she searched SL and found the Classic with Style ad, she was so impressed, she enrolled Nov 2011 to classes at UCWS and thinks it was and is a wonderful experience. She just graduated from UCWS Advanced classes and was honored to be the first to have a doctorate for modeling in Second Life. She also participation in many styling events, and strives to give her best. Photography is one of her loves, so taking photography classes was the perfect idea to blend her love of wonderful pictures with her styling. She has seen SL grow and mature, and her love for shopping is a joy for her new love of the runway. She loves to spend hours, finding the perfect shoe for the gown, the perfect hair, the perfect jewelry, the perfect makeup. She is very conservative in her views of fashion, but looks for that distinctive, unique gown or costume. She has a great eye for styling and works hard for that 'Perfect" look that is needed in modeling. She thanks a couple of her friends for steering her in this direction, and she is endeavoring to be a great model and be dedicated to her training and pursuit of her goals. Janet Brink would like to her styling and talent for this wonderful pageant. This first is styling 1960's swim wear, people always get the 50's, 60's and 70's mixed up, so I decided that this was the perfect swim wear, as it could be dated and verified. This is a SL copy of a bikini that actress Ursula Andress wore in the James Bond movie, Dr. No, in 1962. Andress became famous as Honey Ryder, a shell diver and James Bond's object of desire in the first Bond movie, in the well-known scene, she rises out of the Caribbean Sea in a white bikini. This lovely bikini is by SF design called << Ursula >>, the detail is wonderful, a lovely top that hooks in the back, with thin shoulder straps, wonderful details on the cups and front, with lovely edging details. The bikini bottom has the same detailed edging with a prim half belt that has exquisite detail. The outfit is finished with a divers knife with a wooden handle, similar to the one she was wearing in the beach scene. Swim wear: SF design - Ursula bikini

Applause and cheers for the finalist, while waiting for the the judges to tally the scores for their final standing, Anrol call out the newly and fresh CWS gorgeous models which graduated couples of days ago, to give some entertainment. They are Liberty, Nicki, ooSaroo, Aurora, LindaSpice.
| First song that comes into her mind is the wonderful British group "The Beatles" with their famous 'yellow' song, "Yellow Submarine". This song came out in 1966, the British invasion was going strong, as was the 'GoGo' scene with it's unique clothes. Janet is dressed and dances in the style of the day, we watch as she entertains us. The style of the era was short skirts and high neck dresses, this was very popular in clubs and dances. Janet is wearing a lovely yellow dress by Artilleri called << Nadine >> with a sleeveless high neck top and a lovely detailed skirt with several layers of crinoline. A white belt was very popluar at the time and completes this classic dress. A marvelous 60's hairdo << Alide vintage >> by Sonatta Morales complements the dress, as does the lovely necklace << Sunny >> by Donna Flora, well noted for her period jewelry. It has such wonderful detailed white stones in several lovely shapes and of course 'flower power', with it's two lovely flowers. The boots were a neccessary part of the style, a girl always need white latex boots to go clubbing, and Bax's << Prestige Boots >> are just perfect. Her dance is a nice mix of gogo style dance.|

|Janet on her glittery faery wings|
Reese chose this Circa 1920's Mafia Tuxedo, the ~Padrino~ available at Silexe Cores Marketplace store because the trenchcoat and hat add a layer of underworld mystery to the ensemble, which can be whipped off at any time to reveal the tuxedo below to let him make an impression on the dancefloor as well as the New York streets of the 20's.
Mr. Reese *Question: Do you consider yourself to be a giver or a taker? Why?
Mr. Reese *Answer: hehhh give or taker i wonder if thats a gay ? well , hahah it have to be giver, there no way am gonan go for 2nd choice shudders.
Very well said Mr. Shawbridge. A big round of applause to you.
Ms Sunrae *Question: Would you betray your friends for Fame in sl? Please explain!
Ms Sunrae *Answer: Absolutely not!!!! I treasure my SL friends as much as I do my RL friends. There is a real person with feelings behind every pixel so a SL friend is in fact a RL friend. Fame is generally short lived, especially in SL, but friendships can last a lifetime. To me it's about being the kind of friend to another that I want a friend to be to me. Friends who betray their friends are very shallow people and not truly a friend to begin with. I would much rather be called friend, than to be called famous, especially if it meant sacrificing my integrity. I choose my friends wisely and I want my friends to know they have chosen me wisely. That was a mavles question, thank you dahlins. Muah.
The roaring 20's is an era which we associate with the flapper, the bob, strapped shoes and the cloche hat but many of the styles with which we are now so familiar were first introduced by famous designers such as Coco Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin and Madeline Vionnet. These designers changed fashion history in the twenties with designs that were based on simplicity yet elegant. They were pretty but also modest and comfortable making them more desirable to women. The twenties brought a change to how women perceived themselves and the fashions that helped them do it. Women obtained the right to vote, started smoking in public, cutting their hair short and wore drop waisted day dresses with hemlines that were knee to mid calf length to show the ankles. Evening gowns were designed with the same simplicity but longer hemlines and with fabrics such as organdy, silk, chiffon and lace to enhance the elegance. The designers themselves have since passed on but their designs and couture houses are still famous on the runways of today. The women of the 1920's proved that fashion is capable of changing a society. Her gown is designed in the tradition of what couture houses were releasing in the twenties. This beautiful blush vintage gown was designed for Sunrae by Iota Ultsch of Tres Jolie. It is modest but very elegant and it retains the simplicity of the twenties. The upper bodice is elegantly designed of Alencon lace fabric. The gown's drop waist descends to the hips leaving an elegant tapered pleated band of pure silk georgette that gracefully flows from the upper bodice and defines the waistline and mid-drift without chastening so it is comfortable. The delightful soft lines of the gowns pure silk sheer skirt slims the hips and offers ease of movement. She has flattered her gown with a brown Fox Faux Fur Stole designed by Meg Demina.
Sunrae's chocolate brown strapped Mary Jane heels were designed by Ariel Erlanger and very eloquently add an extra 1920s feel to her blush gown. Her blush string pearls echo the boldly sophisticated motif of the twenties. Her 1920's hairstyle is by Curio. She loves the overall uniqueness of this vintage gown and its divine sophistication of the 1920's.
The last but not the least is Ms Janet Brink. Loud applause and cheers been thrown to her upon being called.
Ms. Janet Brink *Question: How far are you willing to push yourself? Would you resort to unethical practices in order to win this pageant?Please Explain!
Ms. Janet Brink Answer: Well Anrol caught me out this time, one of my wonderful talent outfits was by Lillou Merlin, I wonder if this comes under unethical? But joking aside, the minute I heard 'Yellow', I thought of that showgirl style costume that had been in my inventory for several months. I push myself to win thinking ahead and practicing, there is no reason for me to ever resort to unethical practices, I work far in advance of deadlines, have a great organized inventory, and shop all the time looking for that wonderful creative outfit that I might wear at this pageant or the next event. Hmmmmm...with 46 of Lillou's creations, I might find something for the next show!!
She just love the looks of the 20's, and it was so hard to find the perfect gown. She had 3 gowns and had narrowed it down to one, when a friends asked her if she had been to Sonatta Morales....hmmmm a new store to me, and they specialized in vintage clothing. She qouted. Sonatta Morales has designed a totally amazing gown << Holyrood >> perfect for a 1920's formal gown, sleek and elegant, all in black, Janet will be the queen of the ball in this fashionable gown, perfect in the 20's and perfect today. I am amazed and overwhelmed by the artistic flair of this work of art, a breathtaking design. The bodice is a daring deep vee with intricate rhinestone design edging the open front, and is matched by the vee back with the same beautiful edging. Lovely rhinestones circles under the bust, and around the back, finish with a dark 'V' patern accenting your bust and waist. The wide feathering sleeves accent your neckline and give an elegant look to this awesome gown. Sleek and form fitting with a small skirt from the thighs, flowing as you walk and pose. Janet can not say enough about this lovely gown, and several of the closeups she has taken are the very best of her pictures. A wonderful updo in the 20's look called << Aliona >> by Sonatta Morales in jet complements the elegant style of the gown and the formal look of this exotic creation. Shoes in black called << Classic pumps >> by Blaze nice heels to go with this beautiful gown. One could not ask for more lovely jewelry to complete this stunning ensemble, than << Charotte >> by Virtual Impressions, lovely antique pearls with diamonds in an old fashioning looking style, just perfect for this 1920's look.She thanks everyone that came out tonight, and hoped we enjoyed the lovely story Janet has portray with costumes, styling, and talent. She hopes you were as thrilled as she has been preparing this for you, thank you to the lovely judges tonight, also to Anrol, Steve, and the Classic With Style Staff for this place to express our styling and creative expressions.
