I have a good news to share with all the pretty ladies out there. If you have been wanting to pamper yourself with a makeover by a professional makeup artist and stand a chance to win the coveted title, read on.
This April, Malaysian beauties can have their moment to shine in the glamorous spotlight as well as showcase their beauty and personality to show that they too have what it takes to be an ‘It’ Girl! That’s right – the search is on again for the two winners of Estee Lauder Model Search 2011 where fabulous prizes await, including an all-expenses paid trip for two to Korea!
This time round, the Estee Lauder Model Search Contest 2011 goes Pure Color for its search of its very own ‘It’ Girl. An important element in makeup, colours can make all the difference in how you feel and look, as well as give you completely new looks each time, igniting your beauty and personality. With this in mind, the Estee Lauder Model Search Contest is on the lookout for the two women who embody the spirit of Pure Color – fun, glamorous and modern!
Starting 25th April 2011, the search for this year’s winners takes place with the Estee Lauder Model Search 2011 road shows at respective shopping malls in major cities nationwide. All hopeful candidates have to do is go to any of these Estee Lauder Model Search 2011 road shows and sign up for their chance to win overnight fame as well as prizes totalling over RM240,000. The Estee Lauder Model Dream Team will be at hand to find the women who embody the Estee Lauder Pure Color beauty philosophy: timeless beauty that represents today’s take on allure as well as someone who has the Estee Lauder It factors – confident, modern and elegant.
Like previous Estee Lauder Model Search competitions, two winners will be announced from the two categories – Category A for ages 29 and below, and Category B for ages 30 and above. That’s not all – subsidiary winners will also be announced from both categories, winning titles such as Estee Lauder-Andrews Models Most Promising Catwalk, Estee Lauder-Carven Ong Most Couture, Estee Lauder-Canon Most Photo Perfect, Estee Lauder-Galere Hair Ambassador and Estee Lauder-Miss Smile Korea.

The entry forms received from the road shows will then be put through a semi-finals judging round whereby the Estee Lauder Model Search 2011 panel of judges will select from the two categories the 10 best entries from the first six road shows.

The top entry with the most votes from each category will be the finalists representing the location for the Grand Finale.
But wait, there is a twist to the competition, with the Wild Card judges round thrown in to make the search even more interesting. During this round, the judges will select from the two categories four more finalists from the last two locations to join the other finalists in the Grand Finale. And to make up the 10 finalists, the judges will also make their final selection from the overall semi-finalists from all locations, picking their top favourite for each category.
From there, the finalists will be given a two-day catwalk training by Andrews Models’ professional catwalk experts. They will then showcase their catwalk and modelling ability as well as their beauty, elegance, confidence and style during the Grand Finale held in Suria KLCC Concourse on 12th July 2011. The Grand Prize winners from both Category A and Category B as well as the subsidiary titles winners will be announced at the exciting and star-studded Grand Finale.
Selecting the 10 finalists will be a gruelling process, which is why Estee Lauder Model Search 2011’s panel of judges consists of industry experts who know what it takes to be a winner and will be able to find the two shining stars the be the Grand Prize winners. The judges are Katrina Liew, Brand General Manager for Estee Lauder Malaysia; Erra Fazira, award winning actress and singer, Andrew Tan of Andrews Models; designer Carven Ong; Miko, the talented hair stylist and founder of Miko Hair Studio & Academy; Mr. Yun Jaejin , Managing Director Korea Tourism Organization Kuala Lumpur office, Brunei and Philippines; Simon Wong, Director, Imaging Communication Products Division of Canon; and Aaron Lee, noted fashion photographer of Myth Studio.
