As the season continues next Monday at 9pm we’ve got news of the latest online challenge for you!
In Monday’s episode, the pressure was on, as Wilhelmina Models President Sean Patterson (the winner’s boss!) interviewed each girl, with the help of ANTM favourite, Nigel Barker. Lulu failed to impress Nigel, stating she loves fashion, but not photographers! Nigel expresses his concern over Jennifer’s eye condition Ptosis, where as the pressure is too much for musical Rachel, who freezers when asked to perform. In a shock to all, Sean Patterson sends Rachel home, a lesson learnt; first impressions count!
Next week the girls try to elongate themselves in a variety of poses, and learn techniques to help themselves "walk tall" on the runway. Learning how to walk tall is one of the most important skills for a model to master. So for the third ANTM challenge they want to see you strut your stuff.
This time ANTM would like you to send in a video (rather than stills) at www.antmchallenge.com of your fiercest runway walk. So unleash your inner diva and work it ladies!
When filming your entry get a friend to help or make sure the camera is in a fixed position. Walk towards it, turn and walk away. Make sure your clip is under a minute long.
For inspiration on how to walk tall watch the models at ASOS on the ANTM challenge website - www.antmchallenge.com
Here are ANTM’s top five tips for perfecting a walk that would make Miss Jay proud.
* Be Confident
There is nothing sexier than being comfortable in your skin. Love the person you are and embrace any and everything that you consider flaws.
* Flaunt Your Personal Style
It's great to be fashionable, but always wear what makes you feel good. Let your personality shine through in your wardrobe.
Watch your posture. You must create beautiful lines with your body. Elongate your neck and keep your shoulders back. Hold your head high. Use your core.
* Lead With Your Hips
Lead with your hips as you walk in a straight line crossing one foot in front of the other.
* Be Comfortable In Heels
You must make the walk look natural and effortless. Make sure to get comfortable in heels. Otherwise, you'll appear awkward when you walk like a runway model.)
