Style Kingdom Magazine – Results of 3rd styling challenge

Dear all,

The casting continues and this time, on the 14h Sept, it was decided by me that the 3rd styling challenge was to be Gareth Pugh WINTER inspired.

Gareth Pugh is well known to bring his emotions to his designs and this particular 2013 F/W collection that I chose for the candidates was no easy task to style but it was THE challenge that differentiated the quality of each candidate’s styling skills & creativity!

I would like to personally congratulate the candidates, every one of you showed us the efforts put into researching, thinking and styling for this challenge. I felt every one of you was a winner that night but this is still a casting so here are the results…

————————————————————————————————————-

Judges name – Paradox Messmer

Candidate’s name – Ashia Denimore

1) First impression = 10/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 10/10

Additional remarks – Poses conveyed class, glamour and confidence, and showed off the outfit in a most striking way. The best runway performances are when the poses work harmoniously with the designs and really sell them to the audience. Great stuff.

3) Styling = 10/10

Additional remarks – Very commanding style, glamorous, high end a spot-on tribute to Gareth’s gothic extravagance.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Amoreashly

1) First impression = 5/10

Additional remarks – Very safe

2) Runway = 3/10

Additional remarks – Pose with foot up made the skirt stretched, and the other poses were very “dainty” and just not fierce or glamorous to suit the style. She needed to stand closer.

3) Styling = 5/10

Additional remarks – I can see what she was doing but I feel it was quite flat, too safe and lacking the edgy boldness that Gareth is known for. Her face and skin are problematic as well, she needs some help with it. Her answers for the question of inspiration revealed nothing.

———————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Caesar Langer

1) First impression = 6/10

Additional remarks – Interesting but questionable

2) Runway = 4/10

Additional remarks – Floating 3 inches above the ground. Tops and sides of his boots were sticking through the mesh pants. He was breathing and leg was moving during his poses, didn’t look good to me. Hip swinging walk? Not a good walk anyway.

3) Styling = 7/10

Additional remarks – The purple skirt was too bright and old design. Could’ve picked a better design. I liked the mask but I’m not sure how well it fits with Gareth, though the shape of it is sort of in fashion with him. Tulle was digging into his shoulders. He needed help with boot adjustments and other prims, but it was a nice styling effort.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Locuala Madruga

1) First impression = 10/10

Additional remarks – Amazing!

2) Runway = 10/10

Additional remarks – Professional posing, excellent flow and worked with the outfit in perfect harmony.

3) Styling = 10/10

Additional remarks – Absolutely a stunner, something that would light up a whole runway. Very seasonal for the winter style, she nailed the designer’s influence with the fur layering and the jacket and still made it her own. Brilliant.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Odelissa

1) First impression = 5/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 6/10

Additional remarks – Very dull poses. Too safe.

3) Styling = 5/10

Additional remarks – Bad shoes. The little diamond hearts give it a tacky touch. The symmetry of the dress was very loosely fitting with Gareth’s signature style, but too loosely. The shoes and hair which didn’t look anything Gareth ruined it for me.
————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Roxy Osbourne

1) First impression = 8/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 8/10

Additional remarks – Quality poses, good flow between them and classy fit for the outfit.

3) Styling = 9/10

Additional remarks – Styling was good, it was inventive how she modified a part of a dress to make a hat, lots of points for ripping apart. I’m sorry, I know it’s something of a trend right now in SL but I think the teeth with mouth open really makes the avatar lose some class. Just my opinion. But she looked fab otherwise.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Silly Avro

1) First impression = 10/10

Additional remarks – Blown AWAY!

2) Runway = 8/10

Additional remarks – Very good attitude poses for the look, suiting the mood. I saw no prim sinking or other problems. Excellent walk for a Gareth show. There was a noob turn noticed briefly however, so a couple of points were taken for that.

3) Styling = 10/10

Additional remarks -She put a tremendous amount of thought and care into her styling with intense attention to the details of Garethe’s designs, which absolutely payed off. Nailed it to the floor and made me want her to come back for more.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Tandra Parx

1) First impression = 7/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 6/10

Additional remarks – She was on the steps and her skirt was being cut off by them. She needed to be in front of the judges, don’t know why she stopped there. Interesting choice of poses though. Different. Points for being different.

3) Styling = 7/10

Additional remarks – Hair was spot on. Eye makeup was fierce, appropriately goth. Beautiful mesh worn, but it’s an exact replica of an outfit of his right down to the makeup and hair. She didn’t do anything in the way to make it her own so she loses points for that but gains points for trying to do his style justice.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – xxpollyannaxx

1) First impression = 10/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 9/10

Additional remarks – Good avant garde and fierce, commanding attitude poses.

3) Styling = 10/10

Additional remarks – Downright menacing style, she really stood out and made it hers while capturing the more avant garde side of Gareth’s collection. Her outfit embodied all that is cutting edge about Pugh’s creations. Excellent.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Zionp

1) First impression = 5/10

Additional remarks –

2) Runway = 5/10

Additional remarks – Feet sunk into ground. Was not close enough to judges. Poses lacked character.

3) Styling = 5/10

Additional remarks – Very bad hair, old looking and not Gareth style. Eye makeup looked like war paint done by a child, but I suppose I get what she was going for with how sunken the eyes look in the Gareth models. She didn’t really make it her own and it was loosely Gareth inspired, I felt.

————————————————————————————————————-

Candidate’s name – Zoomy Bluebird

1) First impression = 10/10

Additional remarks – ART

2) Runway = 8/10

Additional remarks – 1st pose was good for the outfit, 2nd pose was a bit awkward, 3rd pose excellent for the outfit.

3) Styling = 10/10

Additional remarks – A real work of exquisite artistry. The curved edges and symmetry to the outfit captured the essence of his signature styling and composition. The classic gothic elegance meets the future blew me away.

Hey everyone,

I think this post will be my last post for the year of 2012 as I really want to enjoy my vacation 100% and not need to think of anything else, not real life work, not SL commitments…nothing 🙂

As mentioned in my previous post, I have lots to be thankful and grateful for. It’s been an awesome 2012, both in real life and secondlife. Once again, thank you to everyone in both real life and secondlife who went through this year with me, in good times and bad times. Love and appreciate all of you <333

To end things off, here’s my last style. Have a merry xmas and happy new year, enjoy!
