LAST SLIDE

Highlights From Elite’s World-Famous Modeling Contest

Yesterday in Shanghai the Elite Model Look competition was won by 15-year-old Julia Schneider from Gävle, Sweden. The contest, you may remember, used to be the subject of a riveting documentary-style show on either E! or the Style network years ago, and is probably the biggest in the world for modeling; past contestants have included Gisele, Alessandra Ambrosio, Cindy Crawford, and many more top models working today. The event is an odd one, part modeling battle, part musical extravaganza, part pageant, only the only talent the models must exhibit is fancy runway walking, rather than singing or playing an instrument or juggling or whatever it is the Miss America girls do these days (text super-fast, like?).

Sadly for the winner, she's already drawing criticism for her weight, and she does look quite thin, yes, but most important for this contest: modelesque. See her, Kylie Minogue, and the other contestants in the slideshow.
