Episode 7 of Australia’s Next Top Model was all about the body. The industry these days is demanding both physically and mentally. Not only do fashion and fitness influence each other in trends but as a model being health and fit allows you to perform consistence throughout a long day shooting and also helps with longevity in your career. The relationship between fitness, health and fashion industry has never been closer and so it was a great week filled with lessons for the girls.
This week the chance to become a Fitbit ambassador was on the line and the key to winning this amazing opportunity was movement. When casting for and working with a brand such as Fitbit the key is natural movement and being aware not to over complicate it. Modelling accessories can be challenging. Be careful to stay clear of over posing! You need to ensure the accessory is the focus without forcing it, natural subtly is the essential and this can be tricky. The girls also had to show versatility which can be the difference between a good and great model. Versatility comes from movement and good body awareness. The girls did a great job particularly Kassidy and Aleyna who both showed these quality but there could only be one winner. Kassidy really embodied the Fitbit brand and she took out the win!
This week’s photo shoot was extra special as the girls had to model Jen’s swimwear brand, Cozi – it was really time to pull an amazing shot out of the bag! With this weeks focus about the body, no one could couldn’t rely on their faces. The girls really had to focus on making big bold moves to make their shot stand out. There were a few nerves before this shoot but the girls produced some incredible shots. But it was Sabine who really hit her stride in the photoshoot this week. She sold the bikini to the judges which was no mean feat considering who she was selling to! She made some awesome shapes which resulted in three 10’s.
We are now past the halfway point in the competition and things are really heating up. Each week sadly someone has to go home. This week it was extremely close with the bottom two being Linnea and Belinda. Unfortunately, it was Belinda’s time to go. Belinda had a wonderful attitude and took everything in her stride, which every model needs to learn. We’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing more of you. Take the confidence you’ve gained from the show and take it with you into your career.
So, we now have our top 5! Stay tune as next week we have a guest appearance from one of Australia’s most iconic supermodels, Miranda Kerr.
