Britain's Next Top Model Live 2010 - A first for London
Preview by Jack Foley
THE ultimate weekend shopping extravaganza comes to London for the first time ever when Britain’s Next Top Model Live arrives from October 22 to 24, 2010.
Based on the hugely successful international reality TV show – presented by international supermodel Elle McPherson – Britain’s Next Top Model Live is set to be London’s biggest fashion and beauty fix, and every girl’s essential event for this season’s trends.
Taking place across three days at the ExCel Centre in London’s Docklands, the event promises to offer every dedicated follower of fashion and beauty the chance to experience a range of fashion shows, exhibitions, shopping, beauty, health and fitness, and interactive features for this Autumn and Winter’s trends.
Visitors will be able to strut their stuff down the red carpet entrance to the Central Champagne Bar and into the largest selection of the UK’s leading high street brands and premium designer fashions, offering some of the latest stylish collections from the high-street and beyond.
This year’s event will also host a series of stunning hour-long Catwalk Shows.
The catwalk shows will feature an inspiring range of fashion, designer gowns and unique creations from up and coming talent, as well as special appearances from all of the girls from Britain’s Next Top Model: Series 6, top music acts and spectacular live entertainment, within the 3,000 seat auditorium.
In addition, visitors can come and learn how to walk the walk like the professionals on the purpose-built Open Catwalk, while the BNTM Live photographers capture your debut on camera.
Alternatively, if you prefer to stand still, why not come and pout, pose and feel the fame of being a model as you work the camera in the Paparazzi Zone with Company Magazine – an area dedicated to re-creating backdrops and photo shoots from Series 6 as well as special locations from around London.
The Powder Room, meanwhile, offers the opportunity for you to indulge in free hair and beauty makeovers, pamper treatments and advice from experts, exclusively tailored to each individual, while Style Icon Workshops offer the chance to come and learn the tricks of the trade from top industry experts.
This year’s event is also offering visitors the unique opportunity to win a place in Living TV’s Britain’s Next Top Model Series 7 in 2011 with the BNTM Application Studio.
Living TV will be recording Live auditions for applicants for the next series of BNTM.
Alternatively, if you prefer to be behind the lens than on a catwalk, you can head for the Live Casting Couch where Models 1 will be seeking out the new faces for their future fashion and beauty campaigns.
