Two challenge shows will then allow the jury to assess the quality of the style and the stage presence of the finalists.

COULD YOU BE THE NEXT LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR? L$50,000 cash TO WIN!

 


A contest for ALL stylish women

Do you have a passion for fashion? Does your style and elegance set you apart? Well maybe
you have what it takes to become the next LUXE Paris ambassador and win L$50,000 cash!

No need to be a professional model because this competition is purely about style and we have the best experts to initiate you to the art of walking a stage so you live a beautiful and rewarding experience. 

But we are also calling the stars of the runway as style is definitely their cup of tea. They just have to have the guts to compete with beginners as every year we have newcomers who make it to the finale.


‘‘I TRULY FELT LIKE A CELEBRITY!’’
                        -Valsnia
              LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR 2021-2022

‘’The best memory of my reign is when LUXE Paris published an article about me and my real-life experiences in the brand's magazine and website, in the SL Enquirer, and in the Spanish magazine SL Confidencial'', confides Valsnia with emotion. 
‘’I truly felt like a celebrity!’’

Valsnia refers to a report recounting her victory in the competition, the final of which coincided with her marriage in real life! 

Valsnia was about to walk for the grand finale when her real-life friends showed up at her house to surprise her and celebrate the end of her celibacy. 

‘’After a moment of panic, I  regained my composure and had everyone sit around my screen while explaining what was happening’’ relates Valsnia.

REALLY EASY TO TRY YOUR LUCK! GIFT TO EACH PARTICIPANT!

You got style? Try your luck and show it to us! It is really easy to participate and everyone who sends their photo will receive a LUXE Paris outfit as a gift upon receipt of their first submission! 

Do not hesitate! Trust your fashion flair! Put on a LUXE Paris outfit, add your charming style, capture a photo, put your official name in the title and send it with FULL PERMISSIONS to the avatar LUXEParisLOOKoftheYEAR inworld.

You can submit as many as 5 photos every week, but each picture must present a different LUXE Paris outfit. Each of the photos submitted will be evaluated by the jury as if it was a new candidate. So the sooner you start participating, the more likely you are to be selected for the semi-finals.

Each week for five weeks, starting May 30th, we will be posting photos of 6 semi-finalists on our website at www.luxeparislookoftheyear.com and in The SL Enquirer. The semi-finalist's pictures will also be published in SL Confidencial magazine inworld. In addition, we will be exhibiting the photos of all the participants in the Hall of Candidates at our main store in Bao/67/72/26.

When we have 30 semi-finalists, our jury will then proceed to the selection of 12 finalists.

EACH of the 12 FINALISTS WILL RECEIVE 10 LUXE Paris OUTFITS and L$ 1500 WORTH of ZURI JEWELRY

The twelve big ones, selected from the photos, will be revealed on July 4th and invited to the Judges' Brunch on July 17th. It is at this event that the finalists will each
receive a L$ 3000 LUXE Paris gift card (approximately 10 outfits) and L$ 1500 worth of Zuri jewelry! This will allow them to create their looks for the 2 challenges/shows at almost no cost. 

LUXE Paris and its prestigious partners are proud to present an inclusive competition where everything is done so that EVERYONE can flourish.




The JUDGES' BRUNCH A FIRST ROLE as an AMBASSADOR 

It is also at the Brunch that the jury will meet the finalists for the first time in person. The twelve greats will be called upon to play their role as ambassadors of LUXE Paris.

Why would they be good ambassadors? What are their assets to play such a role? Each of the finalists will be invited to type a short speech in the public chat to make themselves better known to the judges and will also have to answer questions from the jury.

For this event, the finalists will have to dress in LUXE Paris, as they would if they 
were LOOK of the YEAR and invited to represent the brand at a brunch with fashion VIPs. No marks will be awarded for this event but the presentations of the finalists will allow the judges to get an idea of their personality, which will certainly influence the scores during rounds 2 and 3 of the final.

TWO CHALLENGES-SHOWS

Two challenge shows will effectively follow the Judges' Brunch. The theme of the first challenge will be ''Decades of Fashion 1950-2020'' as the second challenge will highlight the twelve most important fashion capitals of the planet. For each challenge, the 12 finalists will have to present a LUXE Paris outfit with ZURI Jewelry. 

It is the cumulative scores awarded by the judges during these two challenges that will determine who will be LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR 2022-2023 and the two runners-up.

A team of 15 judges from the worlds of fashion, media and entertainment will determine who will be the next LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR. This imposing and prestigious jury ensures a wide diversity of opinions and a transparent and fair process.

LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR 1st Runner-up BECKY KENAAN United States


MOST PERSEVERING COMPETITOR!


LOOK of the YEAR finalist in 2012, 2018 and 2020, Becky Kenaan was in her fourth final this year when she finally reached the position of first runner-up, setting a record for perseverance in the same breath.

``Perseverance has been something ingrained in me by my parents since I was a small child, explains Becky. They have taught me to reach for the highest goals in my life, and never regret or be afraid to fail or fall short - for it builds upon your character and inner 
strength. Who knows... maybe I'll throw in my hat in the ring again next year!``


What motivates her? Taking up life's challenges. 

``Challenges make you dig deep into yourself, `` she says. ``Every challenge that comes our way takes us off the beaten track in many ways. The challenges of the LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR competition allowed me to expand my skills and knowledge base in fashion exponentially.``
``  
PASSIONATE ABOUT BIOPHILIA

No wonder Becky fell in love with the colors and fashion of Second Life, she is an architect and colorist in real life and has a passion for biophilic design. This new 
path of architecture builds on the fundamental love of humans for what is alive
and promotes the use of colors and shapes of nature, light, and water, to create an 
environment that makes human beings feel good.

``I am specialized in designing medical facilities and in the health care profession, 
color plays an especially important biophilic role for both emotional and physical 
well-being``, explains Becky.

``I find fashion and architecture to be very closely linked. In both cases, the form 
must marry the function but also deploy a fluidity, right proportions, a history and
a personal expression. 

I like to apply biophilia to both architecture and fashion. It is the very essence of our
humanity and binds us to all other living species.``


What does fashion mean to you?

``It is, sometimes, my own form of escapism`` confides Becky. `` It allows me to 
express my mood with conviction, to articulate my self-expression where words 
simply cannot. It often serves as an emotional boost that can make a dull day seem
brighter, and it also serves as a reminder that on even bad days, when nothing is 
going as I had planned, I’m armed. As Diana Vreeland once said, “Fashion must be 
the most intoxicating release from the banality of the world.


 MAKE HATRED AND BIGOTRY GO AWAY

This is what Becky would change in the real world if she had a magic wand.

``I am concerned about where our world is headed these days,`` Becky continues.
``However, as an optimist, I believe that as the world evolves, so does humanity and 
that there is hope that our society will make the necessary corrections to improve the
human condition for us all.``

What was your first thought when it was announced that you were the first runner-up?

``WOW!  LOL...  I was certainly thrilled to reach this plateau in my modeling career!  
Of course, you always strive and hope to win the whole “kit and kaboodle... But the 
judging was very fair… and for me, the outcome served as an indicator as to where 
I ranked in this sensational group of talented women. I am honoured.``



Your best moment in this competition?

``I enjoyed the challenge “Reveal the LUXE Paris star in you'' hands down! I chose to 
embody Audrey Hepburn for her many contributions to French haute couture. Not only
did I admire her grace, beauty and intelligence, but I also admired her belief in helping 
others less fortunate than her.``

The worst moment?

``When my brother-in-law had passed away as a result of the COVID-19 virus. This 
came during my preparation for the finale.  It has devastated our family.``
