Last night in London's Shoreditch ELLE's Fashion and Beauty Bookings Editor, Cathy Butterworth was among the industry insiders chosen to help select Elite Models newest recruit. She was on a panel to judge who would win the Elite Model Look competition.
From 10 finalists Nyasha Matonhodze, 15, from Northampton (far right) was chosen, and will now go on to represent the UK in the global model scouting competition, Elite Model Look World Final in China in October.
'I cant believe Ive just won. When they said my name all I could think was wow I won. Where Ive come from, this just a dream for me. The idea of going to China is just out of this world.' Nyasha said last night.
ELLE's Cathy Butterworth said Nyasha stood out because she' has the presence and walk of a top catwalk model'.Elite Models has launched the careers of Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Gisele to name just three.
Nyasha, who reminds us of a young Naomi Campbell, is now certainly one to watch.More
