Press Release: April 12, 2010
Models Direct know how life-changing it can be to become a pageant winner, so we have gathered together some top tips that will help you to stand out from the other contestants.
1.SMILE. This is so important but it can be difficult to maintain a natural-looking smile for long periods, so practice and on the day try to relax and enjoy your experience and think about how happy you are to be there.
2.Think about how you hold yourself. Practice walking with grace and confidence, lengthening and slimming your body with good posture. It may help to join a ballet or yoga class to work on this. Yoga will also help with relaxation techniques.
3.Dont waste time comparing yourself to other contestants, focus on getting your best attributes across. Stage presence can be far more important than talent.
4.Never lie during interviews or on any paperwork. Be yourself; you will come across far better if you sound genuine rather than too rehearsed.
5.What is unique about you? Think about what it is that makes you special and build on it. An interesting talent or hobby may make you stick in the minds of the judges.
6.Choose a platform that is genuinely close to your heart. You will be far more passionate if it means something to you and hasnt been chosen simply to impress the judges.
7.Take an interest in current affairs and have an opinion on everything!
8.When choosing your gown, remember the colours and styles that suit you. Cut is also very important. Remember, you are not being marked on the cost of your gown but on how you look in it.
9.Research. Find out as much information as possible about pageants and previous winners prior to the event.
10.Dont give up! If you are unsuccessful at your first pageant dont let it defeat you. Each pageant you attend will improve your confidence and chances of success.
