Schwarzkopf Elite Model Look Finale: The winner learned how to walk from Cara Delevingne! Peštová and Babišová both made an appearance
The four whose life has been turned upside down
A jury composed of fashion, culture and media experts and international modeling agents voted that representing the Czech Republic at the Elite Model Look World Finale will be Klára Binderová and Sebastian Klimeš. The Slovak Republic will be represented by Charlotta Kušnírová and Andrej Chamula.
"I like Cara Delevingne, I like the way she walks, that's how I've actually learned to walk,"
winner Klára Binderová told us before the finale.
Perhaps that's one of the reasons behind the successful start of her career in the Spanish Hall at Prague Castle where, along with the three other winners, she managed to beat further 19 finalists.
Babišová left Andrej at home
Thanks to the exclusivity of the gala evening, there was no shortage of celebrity guests. The winners were announced jointly by top models Denisa Dvořáková, Michaela Kociánová, Daniela Peštová and the director of the competition Saša Jány.
Saša Jány revealed what all was in store for the winners now:
"After the finale, the winners will be preparing for the world finale, which will take place in Paris in November. That includes mainly walking, photo shoots, communication courses, work with social networks, it's going to be like a modeling course from now on."
The TOP 15 finalists of the world finale will split guaranteed contracts with the Elite agency in the total value of CZK 20,000,000.
