Just after 2 days, we shall be having our new winner for Top Model of the World 2014. We have been covering this pageant exclusively and had been keeping all the updates of contestants followed closely. We have been impressed by the quality of girls, host city El Gouna, the unique activities conducted all these days and the best part about Top Model of the World organisation is that they listened to us instantly regarding the improvements we wanted to see. They acted on each point we pointed out in our post of Midway Analysis on the pageant.
We had 5 judges to score each delegate in beauty, attitude, personality, body and X-factor department. The combined score of each judge in each section was taken and we could finally arrive at our Top 15 delegates. Each of these 15 girls could be a winner in the finale and the ranking is just an opinion. Here we present, the first ever hot picks for ‘Top Model of the World 2014’.
#15- Russia, Anzhelika Iakuseva:
Russia has got a sweet face with bit of Chinese inspired feature. She seems to have a personality of a humble girl and can easily standout in a group if properly glammed up. She was one of our top 5 pick in Swimsuit which itself says that if there is a swimsuit round, then this girl will certainly excel in this portion with a virtue of her feminine body and sweet aura. She resembles to Miss USA 2007, Rachael Smith who placed in top 5 of Miss Universe 2007. Will Russia to place in Top 5?
#14- USA, Miraka Eralda:
We pointed out USA as a wild combination of Disney characters Raphunzel and Mermaid in our swimsuit review. USA has got very fierce facial features which can do very well into modelling world. Placing in Top 15 of Top Model of the World 2014 final should be an easy task for her. However, what she needs to focus on is to emit more radiation out of her personality. We hardly see her smiling, unlike Russia who always is found with million watt smiles. USA needs to bring more liveliness to go further in the competition.
#13- Paraguay, Vanesa Barcelo:
One of our front runners in the beginning, Paraguay went down into our list just because of her weaker body. She was way too skinny, however healthy though, then our expectations. Facially she was locked into our Top 5 and she is another girl who can easily stand out in the group. We just wish that she does everything right on the finale and she will be again on the top slot competitors in the game.
#12- Germany, Alina Moch:
Germany hasn’t got eyes, she has got Diamonds…!!! Yes, this is what sets Germany apart from other girls. Her beauty lies in her diamond like eyes which shines in any pic we see. She is beautiful form the pageant point of view and shall do very well in modelling. Placing in top 15 will not be a difficult task for Germany yet we would like to see how far she can go in the competition.
#11- Canada, Sara Winter:
Sara is one of the bubbliest and sweetest faces of the pageant. What set Canada apart is her cuteness, which may not be modelling’s demand however we could not stop noticing that. Canada has little shyness and is most of the time with her roomie Miss USA. It would be interesting to see both these roomie into the top 15 and checking who places better?
#10- Portugal, Joana Peta:
Portugal is a pageant veteran and has got a maturity. She has previously represented Portugal at Miss International and now is in Top Model of the World. She never fails to stand out due to her attitude and her mannerism. She is poised and has got sophisticated aura. However, having little sharp features which need to be projected in correct direction, it can go either way. Hence, if properly glammed up in finale, she can even crack top 5 or just have to be contended with Top 15 placement.
#9- Australia, Brooke Hamill:
We could see one of the pictures of Miss Australia with past Miss Universe 2004, from Australia, Jennifer Hawkins, it was really a beautiful combination adding Jennifer Hawkins’s stunning look with extreme cuteness with Brooke. Australia is very young and one can see that rawness into her and this is what excite us. Sometime raw talent has more potential than polished talents. Although fresh and young, we dare to keep her into our Top 10 pack, let’s see how far she goes in the competition.
#8- Honduras, Sirey Moran:
Honduras is almost a winner material, when glammed up and she can be converted into a stunner in coming few years. She has got much matured styling and this sets her apart quite easily. She doesn’t rely on her facial beauty to stand out instead her attitude speaks in her silence. If you are given a lot of 100 girls where Honduras is included, it’s very easy to spot her. This shows our confidence on to her and we believe this may take her as high as Top 3, just that she needs proper styling and little luck.
#7- Montenegro, Edina Balic:
Top Model??? Well, then you are at right pageant…!!! We found this diamond just 2 days back when we were going through few pics of the pageant, realised that we were ignoring this girl till now. However, we see an immense potential into her and do believe that she has all those qualities that can create an upset in the finale and walk away with the crown. She is tall, she has slender frame and she has beautiful and photogenic face; this are the requirements of Top Model pageant. We would be happy to see this girl doing well in the finale.
#6- Tanzania, Niler Bernard:
Tanzania has given a new definition to the word ‘Modelling’. It seems as if she is saying, “ Boy..! Attitude sells, not just the look..!” We love how unconventionally beautiful this girl is. She has brought a new charm to the Top Model pageant. And what we like the most about her is that she doesn’t have those girly long hairs yet she doesn’t fail to stand out from the bunch. In fact, her ‘No’ long hair is her biggest strength. We can easily see her shining on the finale night. Go Tanzania…!!!
#4th Runners Up- India, Swati Nanda:
Well, India is one of those girls whom you don’t feel as much in pic as you can in person. If you see India in motion, you can feel how this girl cannot win? She is tall, she has winning attitude and what we see in her is her determination. She is a silent killer and she personifies the proverb ‘I came, I saw and I conquer.’ Indian girls are known for their intelligence and wit in pageants and Swati is no exception to that. We believe if she reaches Top 5, which she certainly will, she will ace the question and answer round. The only thing she needs to take is with her styling on finale. If she is styled well, she will be a bang on…!
#3rd Runners Up- Italy, Giulia Campesi:
What a surprise….!!! Italy is one of the best faces of this pageant. If this was any other pageant than modelling, she probably would have been our top 2. She is young and fresh beauty and her angelic aura is difficult to skip. We believe if she had competed in any other year, she might have won this pageant. Although, she is less of a model, a top 5 without her will be so painful. She is little shy and may need to open a bit to upgrade her position during finale. We are sure that she is locked in the top 15 in worst possible case.
#2nd Runners Up- South Africa, Anronet Roebfsz:
South Africa had always been in our radar and there has been a single moment when we thought that she won’t be in our Top 3. It’s very rare to see a balanced combination like her where a perfect mix of beauty, attitude, charm and wit is found. She doesn’t overdo anything. She is playing a safe game and her entry in Top 15 is guaranteed as per our experts. The best thing we like about her is her humble and down to earth attitude and she is for sure a threat to the crown.
#1st Runners Up- Colombia, Tania Valencia:
Her sash speaks itself. Colombia celebrated her birthday in Egypt last week, will Crown be her gift?? Well, we certainly can see it happening if she does it right during finale. Colombia is an experienced candidate and she knows how to handle pressure of the page and we are sure that she won’t let any moment of her presence go weak. She has sometime messed up her styling, but her beauty has been a saving grace to compensate. We suggest Colombia to avoid curly hair in finale if she wants to go high. Colombia is tall and with a combination of her beautiful face, perfect body and proper styling, she stand out like anything in the finale.
#Winner- Puerto Rico, Jailenne Rivera:
And the competition ends here…!!! We believe that Puerto Rico is everything that any pageant would be looking for and yes we are not exaggerating. When all the girls are fighting for the crown, she is fighting to retain the crown. This girl is 18 and has got infinite potential, just imagine if she is such a stunner at this age, how she will be after 3-4 years? She has best styling, best face, best body and down to earth personality. If she doesn’t commit a major blunder on the finale, she will by default go home with the crown on her head. She has this star quality about her which can never go wrong and we see her having a great career into pageants and modelling ahead.
Few honorable mentions:
