Asia New Star Model Contest 2012 Semi Final

Was invited to witness the Asia NewStar Model Contest both Semi Final and Grand Finale of year 2012, the semi final was held at Stage Club, Avenue K. Of course, since I'm one of the model invited to the event, of course have to dress up a bit.

Chains deco toga black dress and metal plate necklace from H&M
smokey eyes and plum red lips. 

Admits two, but I went solo. lol.

A lot of my friends joined the contest, it's gonna be a tough one to predict who will win the contest as all of them got high potential in making it big. I support all of them, but I know there'll only be one winner, but process and the friendship behind the whole contest is what matters most I think.

T Stage of the Night

To become a successful model in Malaysia, you need to be able to fit into various style and image in order to become as versatile as you can. If you got more than one talent, the better. Guess who was the emcee of the night?!

None other than our beloved Catwalk Guru Benjamin Toong and Wafa De Korte, previous winner of AMFA 2011

After the whole club were filled with guests, here start the show:


My friends were all screaming and whistling throughout this session because oh boy, the guys do really have very nice and toned body shape! Imagine all the efforts they put in by resisting to eat oily and fried  food plus non-stop of body building. Diet is an essential part to a beautiful body and radiant skin that glows from inside out. 

All the contestant models danced during the swimsuit session with G-Dragon's Crayon which made everyone screamed. Those moves were choreographed by Ryan Foo Joe, a singer, dancer and performer in Malaysia which is good in singing Korean songs!

After the dance performance, of course there's self-introduction time:

Carmen and Gwen

I didn't bring my dslr to the event due to it's kinda hard to lug a big bag with me especially in a club, looks totally uncool! Gotta make do with my phone's camera, hence the blurry and overexposed of some photos. Sorry for all the eye sore after reading this blog post.

But of course, there are some good ones as well, I especially love this one:

The colourful lighting really build up the mood

The casual outfit session, sponsored by A Loft Of Things.

Look at all the models and how they strut the runway + posing!

The finale

Since there are so many contestants and judges, of course there will be some Q & A session for the model contestants. If you really know how to score in Q & A session, it's kinda impossible to be eliminated from the semi final stage because to become a successful model, it's not just about looks, but must be a model with brain too.

Kelly asking questions now...

All the model contestants are actually feeling nervous because it's the elimination time

Judges went up to stage one by one to vote and eliminate contestant from this round

Just when all the judges finished wrote the name and we're waiting to know the result from Wafa and Benjamin by counting the votes, my mum being anti-climax, reached the venue and fetch me home, so I didn't know who got eliminated!!!! FML!!!!

But anyway, luckily we took plenty of photos that day, thanks to Kelvin Sing who just won an award in MMFA as Fashion Photographer! Congrats!!! 

Leather Jacket Group

Fun night with all of the models and judges, keep on screaming for Jun. Next, gonna write about the Grand Finale, which I got lost in the huge Putrajaya for almost an hour. lol. I can never figure out the Putrajaya routes, even with GPS. 

Stay tuned!
