IMPORTANT NOTICE about the LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR contest


Dear friends, partners, sponsors, judges, and participants,

This is to inform you that we have decided to postpone the LOOK OF THE YEAR contest this year.

Paris and I have to devote more time to our real life for important reasons. To make this possible we need to postpone the competition for a year.  Our LOTY represents a huge workload and there is no question of doing things by halves.

However, our fashion house will remain active and dynamic, and we hope to take advantage of this break to refine our activity and gear up for the 2024 LUXE Paris Look of the Year. We will also continue to support all the SL fashion events that are close to our hearts.

We thank you for your wonderful and faithful cooperation and hope that you will understand our situation.
It's not a farewell but just a goodbye.

Gratefully ♥
Paris & Mika
LUXE Paris

Model for only a few months LATHILDA JANSSEN, LOOK of the YEAR 2nd runner-up A NEW STAR IS BORN!

A novice in the world of modelling, Lathilda Janssen surprised many, including herself, by obtaining the third-highest score in the LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR competition.

An interview by Ely Catronis
Photos by Mika Palmyra

EC: Before we get to know you, what was it like to hear your name called as the second runner up? 

‘’I was in shock to be honest! I am very new to the modelling world, and I do not have a lot of experience on a runway.  I never expected to be 2nd runner up in the first fashion contest I entered!’’  

EC: I can still feel your excitement! That is so incredible Would you share a little about yourself and how you found this world of Second Life?

‘’I discovered Second Life by chance. I played a lot of games before and saw SL advertised on a website and it sounds interesting.’’

EC: While being in SL, what brought you to the world of modelling and fashion? Are there models or designers that inspire you?

‘’Last April, I started thinking about the possibility of doing something else apart from building, my other passion, and I realized that I would love to learn more about fashion. I always enjoyed creating new outfits. A friend told me Naar Rexen had a modelling academy, 
where she offered a free taster course. I joined straight away!

''One of the designers I admire the most is Iris Van Harpen because she does not only create fashion, but she also creates 3D works of art’’. 

EC: Do you have any advice for people interested in fashion or modelling?

‘’If you are passionate and serious about being a model or want to learn more about fashion you can find a lot of modelling courses here in Second Life. Join one of them and 
start learning something new.’’
E.C.: What is your favorite memory from the LOOK of the YEAR Contest? Or what will be your big takeaway moment from the experience? 

‘’The best memory for me is meeting so many nice people! I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, from the designers who created our clothes and jewellery, LUXE Paris and ZURI, to ONE On ONE Agency team who helped us throughout the challenges and also the other eleven contestants!’’ 

E.C.: Aside from those wonderful memories and great experiences, are there any other events or organizations that you are involved in?

‘’I am currently attending modelling classes at Naar Rexen's In-Nova Models Academy, and also, I have been working for many years as an interior designer and landscaper together with my friend and business partner Cloe.’’

Elegance Agency presents LUXE Paris THE LUXURY of DIVERSITY!

Elegance Modelling Agency showcased LUXE Paris fashion in a super chic show illustrating the diversity of the brand.

Renowned for its couture-inspired elegance, LUXE Paris also owes much of its success to its diversity. Founded in 2012 by two designers with very different styles, Parisian Skytower and Mika Palmyra, this brand has constantly expanded its design team over the years to maximize its variety of styles.

Avalon Chrome, winner of the LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR 2020, has joined the creative team after using her reign to learn the basics of the trade, while Liv Anton adds her artistic touch with her exclusive tattoos

The famous fashion house is also expecting a new baby, the LUXE Paris INDIA collection, creations by Valsnia inspired by her country. So the 2021 LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR winner is also preparing to join the design team!

This team brings to LUXE Paris the shine of a multifaceted diamond, the luxury of diversity.

It's a go! The LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR jury has chosen the first group of six semi-finalists. Cricket Palianta, Lokia Float, Rose Fae, Stormy Spires, Trinity Aironaut and Vee2000x are now in the race for the prestigious title and the fabulous gifts that come with it!


The new LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR will win L$50,000 cash and as much in gifts offered by sponsors. The two runners-up will receive L$10,000 cash and numerous gifts too. It is one of SL's most generous contests and it is open to ALL women of style.

No need to be a professional model since the organization benefits from a team of mentors and professors to guide newcomers.

That said, the LOOK of the YEAR competition is also a place where professionals in the trade shine. The ones who are not afraid to compete against beginners since each year a few rising stars reach the final. The 1919 crown was even won by a debutante. For the professional, this competition is therefore an unusual challenge, a little destabilizing, but how exciting!


The jury will select 6 semi-finalists every week until end of June so applications are accepted until Thursday June 23 midnight.

We remind you that LUXE Paris is looking for an ambassador, a stylish woman who will represent the brand with elegance and charisma. Could it be you?

Very easy to participate: Put on a LUXE Paris outfit, add your charming style, capture a photo, put your official name in the title and send with FULL PERMISSIONS to the avatar LUXEParisLOOKoftheYEAR inworld. Gift to all participants!

Grap your diary! LUXE Paris and One On One Agency are presenting INTERSTELLAR, a super fashion show that will take place on October 11th, 9 AM SLT, and where are the guests will receive a beautiful mink coat as a gift!

Yes it is THE fashion rendez-vous of the year and no, it is not a futuristic collection. The name INTERSTELLAR here refers to the poetry of stars and distant planets which inspired the LUXE Paris fall 2020 collection.

''As planet earth battles COVID-19 and chaos, we have decided to look to the stars, imagining them as so many little glimmers of hope that watch over our capsizing world''. explain Parisian Skytower and Mika Palmyra, LUXE Paris designers and co-owners.

This vision translates into a collection with soft and reassuring colors but also with shocking, destabilizing effects, combinations of unprecedented shades and surprising amalgamations.
Dress, gowns, pants, swimwear, furs... LUXE Paris INTERSTELLAR explores all facets of fashion with that wonderful aura of chic and class that has made the reputation of the brand.

But if the fashion presented will be faithful to the image of the refined elegance so dear to LUXE Paris and eminently wearable, the show will certainly transport us to another world. It is in the heart of a night filled with stars that the One On One Agency will welcome us, exploding the classic concept of the fashion show with delicious poetry that borders on magic!

Arrive early as places are limited and the event is highly anticipated.

Quinte, LOOK of the YEAR 2019

- Nany Jurado, LOOK of the YEAR 2018

''Winning the LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR contest was the best moment of my Second Life'', confides Nany Jurado, a soccer mom from Medellin, Colombia, who has been a top model in Second Life for 10 years.

''When I think about the moment they said my name, I get excited again! I have no words to describe the power of the joy which filled me suddenly. I was crying and laughing in the arms of my RL daughters as the IM were coming from everywhere!''
For Quinte, our 2019 winner who comes from China and live in Las Vegas, the experience was surreal. 

''My favorite part is also the winner announcement'', remembers Quinte. ''It was such a shock!  My tongue would not work! So many top models in the competition and I was the one? Wow!''I never thought I could win! I had never been on a fashion catwalk before! But I worked hard to learn quickly. And the incredible happened!

All the experience was fabulous. The LUXE Paris team treated me like a queen! I would encourage anyone who enjoys fashion to participate, pros, and beginners!''   
Quinte was selected as the best ambassador for LUXE Paris among 196 entries. Elegant and very stylish with a lot of character, genuine and friendly, Quinte represents the LUXE Paris spirit perfectly.  We were really pleased to have her as our brand ambassador throughout the year.

The judges will give a score to each finalist for each of the two challenges at the final show and the total of those two scores will determine the winner.
The contestants will be judged on their style, elegance, and originality by a prestigious jury of 14 members: Parisian Skytower and Mika Palmyra, owners-designers of LUXE Paris, Quinte, LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR 2019, Adonis Lubomir, owner of Swank Events, Frolic Mills, founder of BOSL magazine, Chemak Kamala, owner of SL Confidential magazine,  Ahn Avion, owner of the WomenStuff Group, Ava Jhamin, owner of L'Amour Diversity magazine, Naar Rexen, owner of In-Nova Modeling Academy, Nany Jurado, owner-designer of Bon Amour Hairs, Zuri Rayna, owner-designer of Zuri Jewelry, Ponchituti Boucher, owner of ProPose, Ever Courtois, owner and designer of Tone Makeup, and Lanai Jarrico, owner of The Second Life Enquirer.
