Angel Larkin, 14, has been crowned as the South Australian finalist of the Original DOLLY Model Search 2013 roadshow. Angel was amongst 150 teens that attended the event at Westfield Tea Tree Plaza on Sunday, making the trip from Mildura in Victoria to Adelaide for the roadshow.
The expert judging panel – DOLLY Editor, Tiffany Dunk; Westfield Stylist, Donny Galella and Managing Director of Chadwick Models, Martin Walsh – spent time chatting to each and every entrant. Questions on the registration form were based solely on their interests and hobbies, confidence tips and dreams for the future, not on their physical attributes.
“Angel has fantastic confidence and healthy approach to life. She’s got great advice for teens that I think that DOLLY readers will really relate to and I can’t wait for them to get to know her better”, DOLLY Editor, Tiffany Dunk.
Angel will be flown to Sydney for a photo shoot to appear in the June issue of DOLLY Magazine, on sale Wednesday 8 May. The shoot will feature Angel, the additional state finalists and a sixth finalist who will be chosen from online entries at dolly.com.au/modelsearch.
In keeping with their commitment to promoting a positive body image for teens, DOLLY prepared a Body Image Tip Sheet, which all entrants were encouraged to read before entering the competition. DOLLY will also hold a body image workshop for Angel and the additional 5 finalists prior to their debut fashion shoot to ensure that they have all the tools to be at their healthiest and happiest throughout the course of the competition and beyond.
The winner of the Original DOLLY Model Search 2013 will not only be crowned a DOLLY Ambassador, appearing in the magazine and on the website each month over the course of a year, they will also score a modelling contract with Chadwick Models, a fashion and a cover shoot with DOLLY and a trip to New York to meet with Chadwick’s US industry affiliates.
Remaining national dates and locations are as follows.
WA: Saturday, March 23 – Westfield Carousel, Perth
QLD: Saturday, March 30 – Westfield Chermside, Brisbane
