AUSTRALIA’S NEXT TOP MODEL FINALE - HARPERS BAZAAR EDITOR KELLIE HUSH & JENNIFER HAWKINS
With rockstar performances from Rudimental and Ricki-Lee Coulter, the star studded finale of Australia’s Next Top Model was like no other.
Held at Sydney’s The Star last night, the event featured the top 15 next top model contestants, judges Charlotte Dawson, Alex Perry and Didier Cohen and of course, glamorous host Jennifer Hawkins.
The top 3 contenders Shanali, Melissa and Duckie were welcomed by an ecstatic crowd and fireworks display, before we checked out some video packages of their next top model journeys.
And by the end of the night, we had a verdict… Australia’s Next Top Model is 16 year old from Melissa.
She was selected by the judges for her unusual look with what she herself described as a “7 finger forehead”. She was the shortest and youngest contestant in the 2013 series. Yet Melissa has taken out the fashion title that has launched the careers of next top model alumni Montana Cox, Tahnee Atkinson and Jordan Loukas.
Here are some of the hottest social media shots from last night’s finale.
Of course, ‘I Am Starstruck’ was there to support the sassy models and check out the live action, and you can see what Leeshie wore by heading over to our spin off fashion blog, 'I Am Starstruck: Fashion'.
Congrats again Melissa!
