Elite Model Look, the world's most prestigious model search, was held for the fouth year in the UK last week. The competition that has produced some of the world's best known supermodels including Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bundchen, continues to search for new talent each year.
After launching their men's board in 2010, Elite Models London took the very good decision to include boys within the competition in 2011, where they discovered Matthew Bell, the first male winner. Very good decision indeed!
This year, partnering with some of the UK's leading music festivals, the Elite scouting team donned their wellies to search for the next supermodels and also searched throughout the UK in shopping centres. The result was 12 stunning male finalists in this years competition. We present them all below, including the winner of Elite Model Look 2012.
The male finalists were all photographed by Cecilie Harris and styled by Laura Harvey in all Topman goodness, with hair by Billy and Bo, and make-up by LOOK Beauty. Photographic Assistant & Digital Operator: Benn Healy.
The winners were chosen by six judges: Michaela Goddard-Quesada (President of EML Worldwide), Michelangelo Chiacchio (CEO, Elite Model Management London), Tori Hainey (Director of New Faces Division, Elite), Charlie Clark (Director of Mens Division, Elite), and guest judges, Sophie Beresiner (LOOK Beauty) and Eddy Martin (File & Parade Casting).
Above is this year's male winner, Conor Doherty!
Favourite movie of all time?
We are excited to see Conor follow in the footsteps of Matthew Bell, and can't wait to follow his journey. We can confirm that he is pretty awesome, having photographed him already. And we promise more camera time with Conor to be shared in the next few weeks!
