MISS SL 2017 – The Third Runway Challenge – Miranda is back!

MISS SL Organization.

Hello Ladies, official candidates in the MISS SL 2017 pageant,

in your fourth challenge we are paying tribute to the film The Devil wears Prada, which was greatly received by the fashion and modeling community in 2006.

Meryl Streep was celebrated and awarded for her role as Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of the Runway Magazine, in The Devil wears Prada. While the film mainly plots around Andy, an aspiring journalist, who has applied for a job as personal assistant to Miranda,  and puts up with Miranda`s excessively demanding and humiliating treatment, hoping it will be the addition in her curriculum vitae to open doors for better jobs at other media companies.

The role of Miranda Priestly is not only important but crucial throughout the entire film. While Andy gets an exclusive insight on the ‘private’ side of Miranda too, it`s especially that the film shows the tough and demanding work, that such a job position comes with, including the sacrifice it means for a woman`s private life. How can a business woman compensate better, but with top-notch of fashion. The Paste Magazine wrote:

Pretty much every ensemble Miranda Priestly dons is to die for. Who can forget her evil spin on such a classic sweet-girl move when she peers over the top of her sunglasses and spits, “Oh don’t be silly, Andrea. Everyone wants this. Everyone wants to be us.” Miranda’s knack for fur and neutral snakeskin, her over the top coat collection and sky-high heels all make this modern day Cruella de Vil all the more terrifying. Still, among the fur and stacked heels, her ice blue accents are a consistent addition to this ice queen’s look. These pieces play perfectly against her blue, chilled stare and ice-cold heart.

 And this is your challenge:

  • Please create a business chic styling, based on the S/S 2017 trends seen at the fashion weeks around the globe. Style like you will style in a position as CEO of a fashion company, modeling agency… or Editor in Chief for a fashion-related media giant.
  • Using Meryl Streep`s Miranda Priestly as an inspiration, do add the extravagance and luxury touch, that lets a woman in a power position appear bold and visible. This would be done with accessories, high qualitative and rare fabrics, edgy clothing elements etc …by not loosing the classy and chic appearance, that a boss needs to have.
  • In this styling challenge, you must use two colors and your are limited to two colors only also. Black, gray, white, jewelry, hairs, nails, shoes and hand held accessory do not count for your color choice.
  • Please prepare a walk, a default post and a pose set of 40 seconds, that work best for your styling. Please have a reverse pose prepared also, just in case…
  • Please submit your styling description until Friday, March 24, 12:00 PM SLT at the web form like in the previous challenges too.
  • In your styling description include your favorite quote by Miranda Priestly in The Devil wears Prada. The quote does not have to be in context with your other styling description and does not add to your word count limitation. However, choose a quote that is limited to 30 – 40 words at the most – we do not require a lengthy statement about cerulean sweaters or belts in all its length.

 Rehearsals for the Third Runway Challenge are scheduled for Friday, March 24 10:00 AM and 05:00 PM SLT. As always, you are required to attend at least one of the rehearsals to be eligible to walk this challenge. The walk order and instructions notecard will be sent to you inworld during Thursday, March 23.

The Third Runway Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 10:00 AM SLT and open for audience.

Please do take this challenge with the right approach. We do not wish to see, that you are copying a Miranda Priestly style from the film, we do not wish to see you as Meryl Streep and god beware, we also don´t want to see Anna Wintour clones on the runway, you will go to hell if you dare that. The idea is, to take this figures as example indeed, but to create your own styling, as if you are the the boss of a leading fashion or media company.

That´s all!

MISS SL 2017 – The Second Runway Challenge – Spring is in the Air!

Hello Ladies, official candidates in the MISS SL 2017 pageant,

First of all, it is my honor and pleasure to congratulate you all again for performing a beautiful and fabulous show with the first runway challenge “Women of the World”. Not only have you shown very interesting minimal chic styling ideas, but we also had the opportunity to learn about the situation that women live and work in and your thoughts on, what can or needs to change, or what has been achieved already. I want to thank you, for sharing this important messages with us and our audience in our event.

It is now time, to move forward with the second challenge, which is scheduled for coming Saturday, and I really hope, you like this challenge too. In the second runway challenge I would like to see an explosion of colors, a call for the upcoming spring, the happiness and joy that the raising temperatures and blossoming flowers and trees cause in us.

Short to the point, here are the specific details:

  • Please style an outfit, which resembles anything, which commonly is associated with the spring season. This can be literally anything, but as example, it can be a styling associating a flower, a tree, an animal…
  • You may use single parts of flowers or trees, in order to enhance your styling, i.e. petals, leaves.
  • The fabrics used in your styling may have floral pattern. The pattern only may enhance your styling, but should not be the main element.
  • Jewelry in your styling should not be the main element, to achieve a spring associating styling, either.
  • While you may use this elements, they, and accessory, only should enhance your styling. What matters is your creativity to make clothes express the emotion of spring.
  • I may suggest you, to use bold and fresh colors. For your guidance I have added the Pantone Spring 2017 color chat to this post, but you are not limited to those colors.
  • Please prepare a walk, a default pose and a pose set of at least 40 seconds for your styling. Please also have a reverse- (curtain-, back-, 180°-) pose prepared, just in case.
  • Please write a single sentence about spring. What does spring mean to you, what emotions do you have for spring. Limit your sentence to 20 words maximal please.

This is your challenge, ladies, and I do hope that it will trigger your creative skills a little and that we will see again some beautiful styling ideas in the coming challenge.

The second runway challenge is scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 10:00 a.m. SLT. As always, we will have rehearsals on the Friday before, at 10:00 a.m. and 05:00 p.m. SLT. It is mandatory to attend at least one of the rehearsals, to be eligible to participate the challenge. Detailed informations you require for the rehearsals and the challenge, will be sent to you in a notecard on Thursday night.

MISS SL 2017 – The first runway challenge – Women of the World!

MISS SL Organization.

Brilliant Pic Of International Women’s Day

Hello to all official candidates in the MISS SL 2017 Pageant,

finally we can begin with the competition and I am very excited and hope you are too. The first runway challenge is traditionally easy and for us to see, how far we can or need to push your limits within the competition. For each of the challenges you will need to do research on the particular given styling theme, on history and for the country you represent in MISS SL 2017.

In this first challenge you are asked to create a Minimal Chic Styling. Minimalist fashion is clean and it may look simple at the first glance, and for some it can seem like a fancy word for “boring, but do stop right there. Minimalist fashion is everything else, but simple or boring. Minimalism has a Monet effect, in that it might look simple, but there’s a world of things to examine upon closer inspection. From clever cuts, geometrical forms to lovely construction and carefully chosen colors, minimal fashion doesn’t give it all away immediately.

 

 

And that is the practice of this challenge. While you create your minimal chic styling, you need to use the colors, from the flag of the country, that you are representing in the MISS SL 2017 pageant. With this, we make your styling to be a bold fashion statement for your country. We want you to be bold in this first runway challenge, to shout out for the upcoming International Women’s Day, which takes place on March 8 and is celebrated world wide by women of all cultures. This year theme of the International Women`s Day is #BeBoldForChange. While you walk in our first runway challenge, we also would like to know, what you wish to change, to improve and support the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women in your country.

 

 

Please read the details below:

  • Please create a minimal chic styling. You are not limited to a certain season or year, but make it minimal and yet, bold.
  • For your styling you may only use the colors, that are used in your countries flags. Jewelry, hairs and nails are excluded from the color limitation.
  • Formulate a statement for the International Women`s Day 2017 (#BeBoldForChange) to support the women of your country. Your statement should not be longer than 200 words.
  • Please take a raw shot of your styling. The picture should be at least 512×512 large, but not larger than 1024×1024. Raw shots are usually done with a clean, unicolor background.
  • Please fill the styling description form, with all the requested details. Please attach your raw shot also. Additionally you can submit a second raw shot, i.e. a close up.
  • Please message Marcus Lefevre in order to receive the password, which is required to submit your styling description form.
  • Your styling description must be submit and received until Friday, March 03, 12:00 p.m. SLT, latest.
  • Your statement for the International Women`s Day send in a notecard to Marcus Lefevre please. Please label the notecard like this ‘MISS SL (your country name) – IWD Statement’. This notecard also must be submit and received until Friday, March 03, 12:00 p.m. SLT, latest.

The Challenge rehearsals are scheduled for Friday, March 03, 10:00 a.m. and 05:00 p.m. SLT. It is mandatory to attend one of the both auditions.

The first runway challenge is scheduled for Saturday, March 04, 10:00 a.m. SLT and is open for public.

I do hope that you like and enjoy this challenge and do look forward to see, what you will do with this. Please be carefully not to do to less with this styling theme, but also not to overdo it. The Pinterest boards we have used for this post are random examples only, but you really need to do own research and to find an own inspiration.

 

 

Please feel free to ask questions, if you have any, in our pageant group or personally.

Good Luck!

Sincerely

Marcus Lefevre

MISS SL 2017 – Results from the second live audition and all official candidates!

MISS SL Organization.

Yesterdays audition was the last step, after three months of application process, six castings and finally two auditions. While we were not sure how the castings would be received, we do acknowledge that our decision to change the picture selection from the previous years pageants into a process of application and castings, has allowed the judges to select aspirants for the auditions based on more facets, than a simple headshot would allow.

In result we did have two very interesting auditions with even more interesting aspirants, some fairly new to the virtual pageantry. We definitely have seen, that all aspirants were well motivated, which may also be a significant difference to the picture selections, where we have not been much in touch with a potential aspirant prior to an audition. Hence it is our pleasure to notice the success of the application process and will insist on the castings to replace the picture selection for future pageants too.

With deep regret and sorry we have been informed, that potential aspirants had to withdraw from our auditions, because they were forced to by another contest organization. While we understand, that every organization expects prior commitment to their own event from the participants, this particular contest happens to finish long before MISS SL 2017 actually gets into the full array of challenges. We are sorry for the ladies, who were forcefully and unreasonably taken off the chance to participate in MISS SL 2017, but sincerely hope that they will take the opportunity to participate in the following years.

MISS and MR SL candidates are ALWAYS allowed to enter other competitions, but we suggest to consider about and to commit to our event schedule, which is posted prior to the auditions, for everyone to see (incl other organization owners).

In yesterday`s audition we were amazed by the large audience, who have joined the event to cheer the aspirants for their encouragement and motivation. All aspirants, who have auditioned yesterday truly have performed at their best, to their best knowledge and given their possibilities. We want to thank all ladies, who have walked our runway yesterday, for their trust and patience with MISS SL Organization for their participation in the MISS SL 2017 competition.

We also would like to thank our estimated panel of judges, who have offered their knowledge and time to us yesterday, to select the aspirants, they think will be able to proceed and succeed in the upcoming pageant. The judges certainly did not have an easy task with their decision and we understand, that every judge may have different perspectives. The more we are grateful for the overwhelming response on our judges availability.

Finally, the judges have voted for following aspirants from yesterday`s audition, to be eligible to enter the MISS SL 2017 competition, as always in no particular order but alphabetical:

GretaConGarbo
Maile Michinaga
marylinemaby
Melinda Bayn
Rhiananna
Sakura Zimberman
samanthastell
Sequane
Skie Summers
ZionP

We congratulate all the ladies above, as they are offical candidates in the MISS SL 2017 competition now and wish them the best of luck within the upcoming challenges! Please contact Marcus Lefevre, in order to receive the MISS SL Pageant group, which is required for the participation. Please make sure to be available on Saturday March 25, 10:00 a.m. SLT for the general meeting, which is mandatory for all candidates to attend. On this day we will process the country selection for the official candidates to MISS SL 2017 also.

For the ladies, who have not made it as official candidate in this round, we may offer our deepest respect for their participation in yesterdays audition. We encourage you to keep trying, practicing and evolving please. All members, instructors and models in MISS SL Organization are to your disposal to receive feedback and guidance.

We want to thank the team members, who have directed yesterdays audition and made it a fluent and perfect experience for the aspirants, judges and the audience. We also thank our sponsors for the MISS SL 2017 competition – your all support is most appreciated and understood as our warrant for success.
