The 3rd Task: Milan

Hello there everyone,

let's start off with announcing the last task's winner of the week, Isabella8103, Inessa..., maria-0077 and Pau.Cam.Arena. You all delivered striking entries and beautiful looks but one of you convinced us the most with an stunning entry, leaving almost no flaws. The one person who we think deserved to be winner of the week of Task 2 is maria-0077, Congrats!
Your price will be a nice treat from my closet that will be reserved for you in my bazaar.

Now, let me announce your third task!

For the third task our exclusive topmodel jet flew us to Italy, visiting the beautiful fashion capital Milan! It is recognised as one of the world's most important and influential fashion capitals and is of course known for its beautiful runway fashion shows and also impressive architecture.
Just the right settings for this week's two-part task.

1) Prêt-à-porter Runway Task
Create an outfit that is supposed to be Prêt-à-porter, based on the latest 2015 S/S runway trends and present it on the Milanese runway. Imagine you are on a fashion show, the spotlight is on and all eyes are on you. You have to present the outfit perfectly, you need to sell the clothes you're wearing and make them stand out!
I hope these pictures will help your imagionation.

2) Sedcard Shoot 
As a Model you will travel around the world and visit many castings in an attempt to get many jobs and be successful in this business. There fore you need something like your own business card to promote yourself to the customer, which is called Sedcard.Create a Sedcard Shoot, featuring your doll only to the chest, posing simply/naturally in front of a simple/blank background.
A Setcard is supposed to inform the customer directly about the model's quality, versatility and c
ommerciality which means that your face has to stun out and be cleary visible, don't use too much makeup, your face should be like blank canvas, giving imagination of the facets diversity of your face to the customer. Wear your typical hairstyle and makeup look but keep it simple.Choose wisely, the hair (tip: create your own one!), as well as the face and makeup are very important for this task, they will be your signature look.

I hope you'll have fun with these tasks!
Post your finished entries in the comments below with a or link, thanks.
The Deadline is Saturday, the 6th June, 2015.

Please everyone try to be punctual this time and if you can't please try to send in your entries in the course of two days after the deadline.
As always, if (!) there were any time extensions needed, please contact me soon and I'll try to change the deadline.

Good Luck everyone and stay tuned,
Manda El Rose

Results Task 2: Cape Town

Good day everyone,

I hope you've had a nice weekend. Sorry for the late elimination ceremony but yet again, a few contestants didn't send in their entries on time and also exodus27, nounacoolrock and hsm3rocks11011 decided to leave us.
Whereupon, I'm glad to welcome MissFoxyRoxy913 for a second time, who took the place of one of the three persons above.

So, let's have a look at your entries!

Due to temporary and personal reasons Cathy and Tania weren't able to judge this task, therefore let's all welcome Aeon_Flux_96 aka Giselle, the winner of MMM's last cycle.
She will be the guest judge for this task and give you all constructive criticisms. As winner, she knows what is necessary to be successful and achieve the title 'Manda's Next Mission Model'.

Beach Sunset Setting


Manda: Hats off, you delivered a way stronger entry than last time! I really like the way your doll is posing on the old driftwood, it looks very cool and also brings the bikini into a great spotlight, even though your doll looks a little uncomfortable sitting there.
About the bikini itself; I love the cut and style of it and the slogan fits the striking bikini well but I'm not a very big fan of the pattern. I think if you used more brighter and
harmonizing colors like orange, yellow, pink that would have resembled the sunset sky, your doll would look a little fresher. Anyway, you suceeded to make the bikini stand out from the crowd, so well done! 
Rafael: I do like your photo, the pose is nice and you perfectly fit into the gorgeous scenery. The hair looks nice (although it looks like it could be taken from a dress-up site... maybe it is?).
The swimsuit is not really pleasing, I believe there could have been a better one or one with a modern or appealling pattern. Not the worst entry though so keep going and do work on your graphic/editing skills. Hoping to see more improvement in the next round.

Giselle: You make your doll look uncomfortable with the shoot to be honest. The proportion of the head is terribly wrong! And I find the position of the arms werid, ignoring that you used stardoll's hands. Try to add more layers of shading and light and work on your own hair for the next time.


Manda: I love this! Alina, you look stunning - your pose is very sensual and self-conscious and your green eyes give a great contrast to the rest of the color scheme. I like the bikini you've choosen, the soft pink looks great on your smooth pale skin and it emphasizes your body.
Techniquewise, you could overall work a little on the depth in your shading, especially in the hair and also a little on skin and bikini. They look already really good but I think if you'd use a few more shadow layers it would look even better and give your photo altogether a better quality.

Rafael: What a lovely photo. It's really ... well, lovely, that's all I can say. I love the bikini and your skin looks flawless and very soft. The hair could have been better though (more detail in the shading) and the face seems to be a bit blurry. All in one it's a lovely photo so well done Alina!

Giselle: This looks cute as hell! The shading looks so nice but in my opinion I would make the last layer a bit darker and not blurred. The bikini and the hair are on point and you've choosen a great pose, hair and background. Amazing work!


Manda: WOW - was my first impression when I saw this. Inessa, you look so amazing. The pose is sexy and fierce, the bikini is beautiful and you've choosen just the right color to underline your breezing dark brown hair.
I love how you've choosen almost no makeup except the purple lipstick which reflects in the bikini. The golden details on your two piece match th golden jewelry on wrist and fingers and give a glamorous touch to your photo.
Also, this is one of my favorite backgrounds from this task.

Rafael: This is absolutely stunning!! Okay, I have to admit that it irritated me a bit at first glance because I thought you were somewhere on the northpole, but then I realized it's the beach haha.
The pose is awesome, the bikini is modern and very fashionable and the overall vibe just screams sexyness and luxury. This is definitely one of my favorite tasks!!

Giselle: Your shoot looks good and you have improved so much since the last task, well done! I can't stop staring at your shading, it looks almost flawless, just like on the hand!
I would try to darken the layers a little bit on both the skin and c.othes. Also, try to make a hair of your own! I feel like this one doesn't really fit the theme.


Manda: I see your concept of this photoshoot was definitely to be sexy and sensual, but I think sometimes less is more.
The bikini itself is incredibly beautiful and the pose works perfectly with it; I just wished it would have covered a little bit more of your breasts, because we might do a Nude Shoot in this Cycle some time anyway, so you don't need to show us all of yours at once. What I also like, is your natural makeup and I like the fact you did red nails which reflects the color of your lips and brings a little eyecatching color to your photo.
Rafael: Well, this is very sexy ... I guess? I mean the photo is good but in my opinion it's a bit too sexy, like in an aggressive and offensive way. I also don't like that you don't seem to have a neck in this photo. I do like the pattern of the swimsuit a lot!
It's not my favorite entry this week but there are worse. I appreciate the effort though.

Giselle: The lighting looks great, but I'm not a fan of your pose or bikini, in my opinion it doesn't fit the sunset theme. Also, try to make your own hair the next time. It's really an important thing to do your own hair if you want to be successful in this competition!!!


Manda: I am LIVING for this photoshoot! Your pose is super seductive and diva-like, the hair looks fantastic, the ombré bronde tone is fabulous and it works oh so well with this sunsetting beach theme.
The most stunning thing in your shoot has to be the bikini, you make it look a million dollar worth, the pattern is extraordinary and the striking colors are supported by your pink nails and the colorful bracelet.
I like that you added the sign for Cape Town Tourism, which makes it clear that you're shooting an advertisement. For sure the one who walks besides this poster, will definitely go to see Cape Town for the next vacation.
By the way, I love how u played with the sun's light on your doll's body and added shadow to the non-lighted spots but you could have shaded the face more fitting to the body.
Rafael: And here we have another strong entry: sexy pose, a gorgeous bikini and flawless hair! I really like the skin shading. I have nothing more to add, well done!!

Giselle: That hair, that pose that everything, girll! Love it so much, especially the bikini you've chosen!
I'm not really sure about the shading of the body and your face, like separate they look so fabulous but together not that much, even though Otherwise you prove us that you can do great hair!



Manda: I'm a little confused about your photoshoot, first of all you're wearing a huge black sombrero hat and a red kind of cape/cloth is flying to the left - being the total eyecatcher of the whole picture. Complementing this your bikini is kept in a plain white color, being a normal two piece, mostly hidden by your wild weave.
I don't completely get your concept of this photo and it leaves me questioning why you kept the bikini so simple while the red cape and the black hat are almost overwhelming the observer's eyes.
On a positive note, your makeup looks on point and the hair is beautiful but sadly you didn't sell the bikini for me. 

Rafael: Well, first of all, I can definitely see improvement. You fulfilled the task and the graphic itself looks quite good... but I can also see a bucket. In the sea. And a hand on that bucket.... Um... Wow okay, this is so unrealistic. This could have worked as a surreal artwork, but not as an advertisement shoot. I'm sorry but your "beach bucket challenge" - as I like to call it - distracts me so much from that actually beautiful photo. The pose and the hair is nice, I also like the idea of including a hat. But that hand and that bucket... Gosh.

Giselle: Well your shoot looks kinda nice on a first glance, but then it doesn't convince me at all. I would add more layers of shading and lightings and lowered them a bit, so the quality of the graphic has a better outcome.
Try to work on the details so your graphics don't look like plasticine and take your time!

Waterfall Exotic Setting


Manda: Aaah this is impressive!! Yet again another oustanding entry, Isabella! I really love how you convert the tropical feeling of the waterfalls in your photoshoot, reflected in your bikini, jewelry, hair and pose.
It's one of my favorite bikinis, even though the bikini top almost looks like a crop top actually, but I totally love the pattern. The jewelry fits really well into the color scheme as well and the many golden jewelry give such an exotic and fierce feeling which gives your photo an even more extraordinary feeling. Beautiful makeup and hair as well. Your skin and hair shading is perfect!
Rafael: Bam! This photo slayed me on the first look, it looks very tropical and makes me want to go on a holiday in Cape Town! Love the shading of the skin and I especially love the detail on the hand and the accessories.
My only negative point is that the chest looks a bit weird... are you hiding watermelons in your bra? I don't know, there's just something odd about the breasts. Aparts from that, your task is breathtaking and definitely one of the best! Well done Isabella.

Giselle: You should go and sit in a corner to think about of what you just delivered to us. This. Is. Perfection. In so many levels!! The details are so well done! Can we talk of how you are someone who just took her time to work on every single accessory? Your makeup, hair and pose are on point and the bikini is to die for!!! Totally amazing Isabella! Well done my dear.


Manda: Gabriel, you look so beautiful in your photoshoot! I love the bikini itself, the color is fascinating and the purple vibes look awesome on your doll but I think they don't necessarily match the tropical feeling and all in all it looks a little off. I wouldn't have choosen roses for a tropical pattern as well, I guess some more exotic flowers and leave would have worked better.
The shining silver body chain is a great accessoire though and gives a great detail to a in general simple bikini look.
In addition, I think you should have removed the flower wreath in contrast to the chain, it it kinda irritating and is a bit too much. I would have liked to see more of that flawless hair.
On another note, your face looks beautiful, I love that soft and pale makeup. Good job on the skin shading as well, even though the arms look a little deformed.
Overall, this is a good entry, just work a little on the things named above.
Rafael: I like the swimsuit and the photo looks nice to me at first sight, but looking closer I detect some flaws. Okay, maybe not exactly flaws, just a general feeling that something's not right in here. It's probably the arms that are bended so weirdly, I doubt that this can be correct. When creating a graphic where your doll strikes a pose, it is important to study the anatomy of the human body first so that you know what you're doing. The hair looks pretty good to me, it's shiney and the shading is great.
I see you have potential, just keep working on yourself and don't lose faith. I believe in you!

Giselle: Your shoot looks so good! The choice of the pose is great but I'm not really sure about the bikini or at least the color scheme...
The shading is amazing an nothing to complain about, you've been working with hair and this time looks great. Maybe next time try to draw the graphic all by yourself e.g. the flowers crown!


Manda: Actually, my jaw dropped when I saw this. On a first impression, the colors are so intense and shiny! Your photoshoot lives for its variety of several blue shades which serves underwater-sea-cave-waterfall realness and I am loving it!
Out of all bikinis this one has to be part of my favorites. The vivid deepsea blue looks perfect on your doll's skin tone and it harmonizes so well with your sensual and seductive pose. The golden waist chain looks fantastic and works so well with other golden details.
Your hair looks all wet like you just emerged from the water after you took a deep dive. You're totally selling this bikini for me and it's amazing how you succeded to make the blue bikini actually stand out from the blue background.

Rafael: This is my absolute favorite photo this week, period. The scenery is a dream come true and you look endlessly sexy and sensual. The bikini is very lovely, it looks expensive and precious. The skin and wet hair look flawless and ... ooh the whole damn advert looks flawless to me! If I was a woman I'd buy the bikini straight away. And if I had a girlfriend, I'd buy her this bikini straight away.
Very well done Maria! Lovely boobs by the way.
Giselle: Shading, pose, background. You made the shoot so sexy but lovely at the same time! Love your face and how you came up with an amazing work! The bikini is totally amazing and the shoot looks so professional! You make me fall in love with this one! Nicely done, beauty!


Manda: I like how your bikini waterfall advertisement is totally different from the others. As most of them are mainly colorful or feature a green/blue background, yours is quite minimalistic with neutral, calm colors.
Therefore, your photoshoot is giving me heavy Mulan vibes and your doll reminds me of an Asian beauty!
Your bikini is very interesting and complex, I just think you should have shaded it way more. I think I don't see any shading on the bikini at all, sadly it doesn't stand out from the photo as well, it's not eyecatching at all. Also, your face is very blurry which makes the photo lack in quality a lot. Never use a blurry head, it will always worsen a graphic! I wished you had shown us more, I see potential in you and I think you can prove it, but this time you slightly disappointed me.

Rafael: So first of all, welcome back in the competition! You were given another chance but unfortunately you didn't really use it, sorry. The bikini is not really my taste and the graphic is very blurry. But that's not really the worst thing. What I find very sad is that the bikini which should be advertised is not in the center of the photo. If I didn't see logo of the swimwear brand I wouldn't even assume the bikini is important or being advertised.
Please remember, as a model you have to advertise the clothes you're wearing and make them naturally stand out. In a photo/advert, you should compliment the clothes by doing a pose that presents them in the best way possible and by a fitting facial expression. Of course this doesn't mean that you have to change your doll's face for every single photo, but you can use make-up to make your face look stronger or softer, whatever is required.
Please keep this in mind and I hope I'll see you in the next round so you have a chance to improve.

Giselle: The pose looks nice but the graphic not that much. The face looks blurry and the rest kinda pixelated!
I would have add layers of shading in the bikini as well. The hair is not my cup of tea.


Manda: Unfortunately, I think this bikini advertisement is the most boring one. The two piece looks like random lingerie from the supermarket, it doesn't really underline your doll's body, neither do I think that the black and magenta/pink don't harmonize so well with each other. You should have went for an either complete pink OR black look.
The pose is kinda awkward, I think the arms are was too short, it's like half of the arms are hidden behind the small head which very unrealistic.
Also, you should add some more depth into your graphic, that way it looks pretty average.
On a positive note, I love your face in here, it looks amazing all natural. 

Rafael: Whoa, what happened? I know you can do sooo much better than this. The bikini looks like you didn't even bother to put effort into it, the skin shading is a mess and the pose/arms... well, let's not talk about this because you can hopefully see what went wrong yourself.
Oh Virginia, I'm actually really disappointed by your photo because I was expecting something great from you. I hope you can return to your old standard of graphics in the next task!
Giselle: Love how your skin looks kinda darker because of this shoot! The idea is great but Im not a fan of the pose or the outfit. The neck bone looks so harsh. You've choosen a nice background but it doesn't fit anything else. Also, we know you're improving with the hair and we know you can do better than a stardoll one! ;)


Manda: Your bikini photoshoot belongs almost to my favorite ones, the pose is super fierce and cool, you did a perfect job on the body propositions and I like your skin shading a lot, it makes your skin look super smooth, even though you could add more depth into your shading, so it would look even more defined.
The bikini is perfect, I love the style of it and it fits so well into this waterfall scheme. Your hairstyle works superbly with the style of your photoshoot but next time please try to draw your own hair, I am sure you can do it! What I don't like so much about your advertisement is that I think it turned out a little boring, almost average, you should definitely try to stand out in the future.
Rafael: I like it. The pose is great and the bikini looks cool. There's actually nothing wrong with this photo, I guess what bugs me is that it... well, it's boring compared to some other entries. Not that it's bad, it just doesn't stand out from the crowd. And if you want to become a successful model, you HAVE to stand out, otherwise you will get sucked into a black hole. No wait that's bullshit. You will blend into the big grey crowd. I know, that's not better, at least not if you want to become a model.
I mean you definitely have the potential, you have a beautiful face and also talent. I'd love to see you in the next round and maybe then I will look at your task and say "WOW, that's the absolute best this week".
Giselle: Your bikini suits the theme perfectly and your shading is so nice, you shade the right areas but I would love if you could define them a little more, 'cause I could barely see them That's just my opinion, the technique is great tho. On another note, I would work on hair the next time!


The Elimination

Now I will tell you who will enter the next round of Task 3 and will have another opportunity to fight for the title of Manda's Model Mission.
You know with each task, at least one person has to leave us, regardless of how many people had to drop out of the competition.

Let's start with those contestants who convinced us the most with their task's entries. The first four that will enter the next round are Isabella8103, Inessa..., maria-0077 and Pau.Cam.Arena. Congrats!! You four delivered us the strongest and most striking entries of this task.
As always,
one of you four has the chance to be the winner of the week of this task, who will be announced by the introduction of Task 3.

Let's move on with our Bottom 3. In this week's Bottom there are
MissFoxyRoxy913, Rei1981 and SandyHermosa. Sorry girls but your tasks were convincing us the least this time.
Therefore, all the other contestants that weren't named yet; Black-Lady-1, Dreamiiiii, LuluTeres, julia-changDiva. Tadi_12; are safe and can join the others in the next round! Congrats!

Roxanne, last week you were in the Bottom, you came back and we gave you another chance, but now unfortunately you're in the Bottom again. We feel like we gave you another chance which you didn't quite use but on another note you probably wanted to delimit from the others and show us something complete different. Also, you added a slogan which matched your advertisement.
Virginia, I know, you had to rush your graphic but still I think you could have managed to do something more creative. We all know that you can do something better than that, but you can't get further in this contest when we only know that you can do better, but you actually don't ever do it.
, your entry left us perplexed, confused and definitely not happy. Just like Roxanne you're yet again in the Bottom. We couldn't find out what your advertisement was supposed to deliver, therefore sadly you couldn't show us any improvement in this task at all.

who of you will have another chance to fight for the title? Who will be in the next round? Roxanne...Congrats, you're in the next round. We want to give you a last chance, use it!! Don't be in the Bottom of the next task or you might eventually have to leave this competition forever.
Virginia and Melanie. Still one of you has the chance to fight for the title. Who will it be? Who do we want to give another chance and from who do we even expect that she really can use another chance?
The judges decided and we came to a conclusion.
Melanie..., I'm sorry but it's not you. This means, Virginia is in the next round! Congrats, you barely safed yourself from elimination my dear. Show us what you've got in the next Task!

Melanie, don't be too sad, you have a beautiful face for modeling and we enjoyed our journey with you, but every little journey has to come to an end.

So my dear contestants, congrats again to everyone who made it!! We've reached the Top 11 which means next task we will have our Top 10 - how exciting!

Task 3
along the winner of the week of Task 2
will be announced very very soon so stay tuned!! 

Hope you'll have a wonderful day and keep shining,
Yours Manda

The 2nd Task: Cape Town

Hey there everyone,

so first of all let's announce the cycle's first winner of the week. As you know, the contestants who achieved to be the most outstanding of Task 1 were exodus27, Isabella8103, maria-0077, Rei1981 and tadi_12.
You all delivered strong entries but at the end of it all it was a tight race between Isabella and Jailer. The one who convinced us altogether the most was ... Isabella8103, Congrats!
Your price is a nice piece from my closet, coming soon to you as soon as I'm superstar.

Now let's move on to your 2nd Task!

Thanks to our exclusive topmodel jet, this week we flew over to South Africa and landed in Cape Town! Well known for its Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town is one of the most influential urban areas South Africa's and an indispensable part of the fashion world.
Delivering us the most beautiful nature sceneries, incluing fairylike beaches and waterfalls, we're having the perfect setting for this week's task!

Bikini  Fashion Advertisement
For this task, you'll be split in two groups. Group A and Group B.
Your task is to create a striking bikini advertisement, wearing the most fashionable and trendy bikini summer clothing that should be the eyecatcher of your photo. Also, if you feel like a slogan would support your advertisement, then you're of course free to add a tiny, catchy slogan!

Each group, A and B, will get their own natural scenery, one group will have to perform at the ravishing Beach while the other will be posing in their bikinis in front of a wild Waterfall.
Your pose, makeup, hairstyle and possible, eventual slogan should fit and support the bikini you're wearing.

You are free to choose any bikini you'd like to wear BUT you should make it be in the forgreound
and set it perfectly in scene - it should fit your natural setting. 

Group A
Beach: Sunset Setting
(this is NOT the background you have to use, this is just a sample to help your inspiration)

Group B
Waterfall: Exotic Setting
(this is NOT the background you have to use, this is just a sample to help your inspiration)

Again, the backgrounds given above don't have to be used but they are meant to tell you which scenery we want to see you in. This means, you can use any background you like as long as it follows the task.

I hope you'll have fun and I can't wait to see how you'll work this advertisement out!
Post your finished entries in the comments below with a or link, thanks.
The Deadline is Friday, the 15th May, 2015.

I know it's just a week, but we need to quick up this game a little since the finale is scheduled to be live in Dollywood's Success Arena in about 2-3 months.
If (!) there are any time extensions needed, please contact me soon and I'll renew the deadline.

Good Luck darlings and stay tuned,
Manda El Rose

Results Task 1: Los Angeles

Hello everyone,

finally finally finally here are your results. I'm really sorry for the huge delay, but I promise the rest of the competition will be delivered mostly on time!
Actually I was pretty disappointed by four contestants that didn't send in their entries even after I've adressed them several times. Oh - and one tip - before you apply for this competition, next time think twice rather you're "made for this".

And before I forget it, here are two tiny sidenotes for everyone:

Please, don't spread your entries on any social websites before the Results of the given Task are official.
Also, you're not supposed to change your doll's face by major changes throughout the competition. This is a model contest after all, isn't it?

So, let's have a look at your entries!

(Due to temporary and personal reasons Cathy wasn't able to send in her judgements of the second part, so her comments are missing in some points of the results.)


Manda: I like your first outfit, it's cute and fashionable. My favorite thing about the outfit are the lovely shoes and the fact that the colors work very well together. Also the makeup is beautiful.
Your second outfit is pretty, but I don't really see spring in it. You did use floral patterns, but the bag, the shoes and also the jeans make it look autumnal. I also don't think the combination of the top and pants works that well.
Your rodeo drive photoshoot is okay. It's not great but it's not really bad either. I like your hairstyle but I miss the crazyness in everything else. The pose looks great on the upper body but the arrangement of the legs just doesn't work for me. You look wobbly and unsteady which unfortunately makes the fiercness lack in this shoot.
Rafael: The outfits are gorgeous! The first one looks flawless to me, I can't find anything that I dislike. I'm a little bit on the fence about the second one though. Don't get me wrong, it beautiful, especially the top and shoes. But I just don't get any spring vibes, it rather reminds me of late summer/early autumn.
The photoshoot on the rodeo drive is good, the pose is kind of weird though, but I love how you went for a short ice-blue/grey hairstyle! I also love the shoes! Well done.

Cathy: You really thought of a concept for both your looks and the concepts work! The circus outfit is creative and you've delievered a good entry. With other trousers for the flower outfit or a red belt for the circus one, you could have scored even better!
Tania: I like a lot the first outfit, it seems like a fresh modern spring outfit that i'd wear for sure, I'd might change the shoes though, to some more colour fitting. As for the second outfit I'm really not feeling it, the pieces really don't go well with each other, at all.
About your second task, tt's a bit of an awkward pose, it'd be difficult for the model to pose like that without any support. The graphic feels rather rushed, there are quite some things that don't feel so right to me, like the right arm, the not-worked-on pattern of the dress and the lines around the doll.


Manda: I like your outfits a lot. They are very simple, but the choices of colors are just right. In general your style is one of my favorites, because it is so casual, simple but eyecatching and high fashion at the same time. I think you can do even better. I miss some accessoires and the special something. Love the makeups, great job.
Your photoshoot is good. The pose is nice, it brings motion into the picture which I like a lot. Your outfit is not my favorite. Instead of going for a crazy high fashion look, you look more like you came from a children-birthday-halloween kinda party. Luckily, your striking face expression, makeup and hair make up for it. All in all this is a solid, fine performance but we all know you can do better.
Rafael: You're outfit task is so cute and dreamy! The outfits are a bit too simple for my taste but still lovely!
The photo looks great, the pose is amazing! I don't like the outfit because it looks rather childish. Even though the choice of clothing isn't very good, the make-up makes is very stunning on the other hand. It's very edgy and high-fashion. What I like best about the photo is how strong your face looks on it! Well done Alina

Cathy: I love your second outfit, it is so cute and stylish and definitely one of the best outfits from all contestants. You first outfit is good, too. You could have improved your entry a lot by not cutting of your doll's head, it's hard to imagine the overall look if the head is just missing, even though it's put beneath the outfits.
Tania: Very sweet and cute outfits, they fit perfectly into the spring theme and the pieces look great all together, great work!
The graphic looks a little rushed , I know you can do much better. It looks like it's unfinished and that's why it seems kinda awkward. It is surely not your best work, but it is still a nice photoshoot.


Manda: Your outfits represent your unique and fierce style very well. They are nice, but sadly I don't necessarily see spring style in both of them. The nude body and the jeans skirt for sure look springlike and fresh but I think you overused black a little.
Oh my god, your rodeo drive shoot left me gagging. You look breathtaking and you really understood this task and made it your own. You challenged yourself with this amazing and CRAZY piece and the pink latex outfit looks so pretty! Your makeup is fierce, though I have to agree with Rafael that the hair isn't my favorite as well.
Rafael: I have to agree with Cathy that there isn't really a connection to spring trends, I don't really get them spring vibes. Nonetheless I think they're so nice and definitely your style, so well done Jailer.
Wow, what a breathtaking second task! I absolutely adore the rodeo drive shoot, it's daring, high-fashion and unique. I love the make-up and the shading of the dress which looks flawless to me. I'm not really a fan of the hair though.

Cathy: I don't really see a connection between your outfits and the latest spring trends, the black&blue outfit would rather fit for an autumn theme and the other outfit just seems unfinished to my eyes. As much as I respect you for having your own style, you didn't really convince me at this task.
Tania: Surely both outfits show your unique style very well. Everything is in sintony, the pieces go perfectly with each other, the backgrounds are very fitting and I'm loving the hairstyles and makeup.  BUT I don't see anything of a spring outfit, by far. You were able to only do half of what the task told you to, I'd have liked to see you incorporating something as soft and vibrant as spring into your style, it would have been a interesting mixture.
Your photoshoot, it's perfection, Not only you're good with graphics as we all know, but you totally got the idea of what we wanted for this task. Great work.


Manda: I was very very happy with your first task, you were actually one of the few that literally understood what was meant by saying to create a lookbook. You're really selling the outfits and they look amazing on your doll. My favorite outfit is probably the first one, I just adore that blazer so much and the blue shades works oh so well with your makeup and hair. Oh and for a second time, let me add how I can't stop looking at the beautiful presentation of your lookbook.
Your rodeo drive shoot is one of my personal favorites, because it looks so so pretty, yet so fierce and powerful. I love the patterns on the top and skirt and I think the whole color scheme is gorgeous. I think you could have went for an even crazier look, though the hair and makeup are on point!!
Rafael: Wow, first of all I love how you executed the first task! The idea of making a lookbook worked so well here. In my opinion the outfits aren't exceptionally good/fashionable but they're not bad either. To be honest, the way you present them makes them look better than they actually are. And that's exactly what a model has to do: make the outfit look a million dollars worth, so twelve points for that.
Your photoshoot was definitely one of the better ones! I love the hair and I'm a big fan of the make-up. The rest is quite good.
Cathy: A large thumbs up for the effort you put into presenting your outfits! Just make sure that the outfits are still at the center of attention, maybe by removing the label informations. Your outfits are perfect for spring, I only wish you had chosen another top for the yellow skirt. But well done.
Tania: Very spring alike outfits again, cute with a bit of an edge. I like the edit you made, the makeup fits perfectly and the looks are very well accessorized.
When I see your graphic I see quite some potential. The shading might not be totally perfect but it's pretty good, the makeup & hair color is perfect and I really like it that you dared to use patterned clothes, not many graphic designers would do so, so great work Sarah!


Manda: I'm not a very big fan of both your outfits. I think you can do lots better, your outfits do seem springlike but you're just not selling it to me. The first outfit is nice, the crop top is really cute and I like your doll's makeup in here, but I feel like the first look is just too basic with that flower crown, crop top and shoes. Such a combination I've already seen a milion times on stardoll. Your second outfit is better but still I find it a little hard to look at, probably because I just really don't like this dress and those shoes.
On a better note, your rodeo drive photoshoot saved you. The outfit and hair are crazy as hell. While personally I don't like the style of it, I think it does fulfill the task, even though I'd liked a more high fashion, kinda crazy look better (like ones from Alexander McQueen or Dior by John Galliano).
Girl, step up your game, I know you can do it!
Rafael: I really like both of your outfits a lot!
The first one is so cute, I love the crop-top, the shoes and the flower crown. Usually I'd say that high-waisted lace panties are for grannies, but this one worked well in here! The second one is great, too. Everything matches and I don't have any complaints.
About the photoshoot: wow, that's what I call crazy fashion! Love how there's two outfits in one. The hair screams "bam!" I mean style-wise it's really not my taste (especially not the hair), but the task is fulfilled up to 100% so I can't really complain, right?
Cathy: I like the outfit with the dress, it's creative and in style. The other outfit doesn't work for me, the colours seem randomly put together and the tattoos look like sleeves at first sight. The backgrounds themselves are nice, but don't match the outfits. You can do better!
Tania: I like the second outfit, the pieces go really well with each other and I'm loving the tattos but the first is a bit too basic for my taste, sorry.
Even though your rodeo drive photoshoot is not super edgy, I'm liking your entry. The idea of the outfit is very nice but the left arm & foot seem a bit strange to me, also the hair needs quite some more details and shading. Nice entry overall though.


Manda: Your outfits are so so pretty. They are definitely my favorites from this task. I love your denim street look and the shoes give a perfect edgy tone to the it. Also your make-up and hairdo are on point. Your second outfit gives me coachella vibes and I live for it! Your hair is the prettiest I've seen and the bohemian style works just perfectly with your doll.
I'm so in love with your rodeo drive photoshoot, this is perfection. Your look is fierce and that dress suits you like nothing else. Yet, I think you could have went for an even crazier look, because even though I think that dress is definitely super fabulous and exceptional I'm still missing a hint of crazyness in here. All in all, you blew me away this time.
Rafael: I love your outfits! The double denim outfit looks very pretty, the purse is gorgeous! I love the bohemian vibe of the second outfit and THAT HAIR.
My jaw dropped when I saw your photo! Gurl you rocked that rodeo drive shoot! The pose is edgy, the dress is super gorgeous and your make-up is spot on. It's definitely one of the strongest entries and a flawless first task!

Cathy: You've created the best spring outfits in my opinion. Both the outfits themselves, which  are very trendy, and their presentation convinced me. Especially the outfit with the skirt is something I could see my doll wearing!
Tania: While your doll has one of the most striking faces in the competition, you've also such great sense of style it amazes me. I'm in love with the two outfits, there's nothing I can comment about that doesn't fit, they're just perfect spring outfits. I'm so looking foward to see more of you in this competition.
Your rodeo drive photoshoot... well, so as I was saying... you're the 'perfect package'! You're not only immensely stylish and fashionable but you're also great with graphics. I really like what you did, it's fashion foward but still very feminine and modern, perfect shading & outfit & background - again my favourite work of this task.


Manda: First of all, I really like your idea of doing a day and night look. Your day outfit is sweet and pretty but I think the lower part from the pants looks a tiny bit better than the upper part. I am not a very big fan of the flower tee, it looks a little quirky and the hat doesn't necessarily make up for it but I guess that's just my personal taste. The second outfit isn't that much of a big deal as well, the idea is really nice but the flower crown is out of place and in my opinion the top looks a little too funky for this look.
Your shoot on rodeo drive is fierce and casually cool, the makeup is awesome and it definitely gives the crazyness in this shoot. Your pose could have been a little more extraordinary, but I think the color scheme of your look kind of makes up for it, even though I can't decide whether I find the colors just fitting or completely miserably put together. I looove the hair tho!
Altogether I think you did an okay to good job but I am sure you can do way better.
Rafael: I really like the ideas of your outfits, I think the day outfit is very cute and nice. The night outfit looks gorgeous at first sight, but looking closer I feel like the flower crown is too much in combination with the flower top. I actually think that the flower crown is  generally irrelevant/unnecessary. The pants look awful to me. I do like the jacket though.
The rodeo drive photo is very cool and edgy, I love the pose and the hair. The outfit could have been better if you didn't choose this painful color-combo. Seriously these colors just don't match, it's too much. Sorry.
Overall your tasks were nicely done but you should definitely work on your style and fashion sense and also watch out to combine the colors wisely!
Cathy: Your day outfit is quite average, it's something I've seen a dozen times and the clothes don't match that well in terms of fitting. Your night outfit is better, although the silhouette is quite awkward.
Tania: While I really like your first outfit, I'm not at all sure about the second one. At a first flance the combination is really nice, even though I don't feel the background really matches that well, the items do overall and are giving a nicely soft and cute vibe. As for the second one I don't think it's working at all the combination you've put together, it's not only one item that doesn't really match but all of them,if you wanted to go for a night outfit, i'd rather use some skinny leather jeans and some loose top without any flower wreaths and keep the coat as it's already quite a statement piece itself, so maybe keep it a little classy.
About your rodeo drive photo, I can say I'm loving your makeup also I think you've lots of potential in the graphic world but it feels not daring enough for me, specially the pose, as Manda said that was the most important. But with that said I'm loving the mochino suit & purse, your doll is rocking it.


Manda: Your style seems to be very minimal and simple but it does look good as proven in your first outfit. I like the concept of it and I think the white suits your doll perfectly. Your second outfit though is plain boring. I like the shorts but thats the only positive thing I can say about it. Just as Tania said, the outfit looks way too basic.
Your rodeo drive shoot is great, I love the pose and outfit. The shoes are amazing and I think they are the craziest piece in your photo. The hair fits nicely but your makeup is average and I have to agree with Rafael on your facial expression, it wasn't very wisely choosen.
Rafael: The outfits are very simple but nice. While the first one is chic, the second one is rather playful. I also like the pose.
The rodeo drive shoot looks gorgeous, I love the shoes and the pose. The hair fits the outfit quite well! Only negative thing is that your facial expression ain't the best, you look quite lost here.
Cathy: Your black&white outfit is cute, but I see your doll's bra which is a complete no-go, and the second outfit is just too simple for me, I'm not sure whether you put much thoughts into the second combination. Try to work on your makeup and hair styling, they have a childish vibe.
Tania: The outfits are a bit too simple and basic for me, specially the second one, it seems unfinished. I'd like to see something more daring, I feel like they're too boring sorry.
I like the concept & the pose you chose for your rodeo drive shoot and I see you've potential but some parts of the graphic need a bit of work, specially the arms & hands, they look a tad weird to me. Nice entry though!


Manda: Your outfits are very nice. Your first outfit looks gorgeous, it looks like pink and denim meet coachella which is a striking and beautiful look. Also your second outfit is very pretty, the look is very fresh and I like how the whole outfit seems to fit together like the green/blue scarf matches the dress and the light blue belt perfectly.
Oooooh girl, I'm getting Lady Gaga - Love Game vibes from this shoot! You are rocking rodeo drive! I'd never expect such a unique and over the top representation from anyone in this task - which is a good thing, Maria! You look fierce and crazy as hell and I can't complain about one thing.

Rafael: I'm in love with your first outfit! It's so playful and pretty and cute and accurate and well-accessorized and aaah I luv it! I also like the second outfit, the green looks very fresh and spring-y and it's very fashionable.
The photoshoot is stunning as well. It's very daring and crazy, you look like one hell of a badass chick. Me gusta!
Cathy: I really like the backgrounds you chose, they really match your outfits. Your blue-grey-pink outfit has a fresh spring vibe, it would have been even better if you had removed one of the bracelets, it looks a bit too overloaded with all the eyecatching accessoires. I'm not a big fan of the dress outfit, it doesn't seem to match your doll's style.
Tania: Very nice outfits, quite spring alike and very glamorous. The combinations are perfect and I really am very glad that you acessorized it very well, that is forgotten so often!
Is Edgy your middle name? This work is so totally over the top, I'm loving your rodeo drive shoot! Not only the picture in itself is awesome but also the fact you dared to put a side face. Great work, I'm excited to see more of you in this competition.


Manda: I like your first outfit, I think the floral skirt works really well with the rest of your outfit and I like how the tone of the roses reappears in your lip color. Maybe I would have removed the neck tee beneath the black transparent top but it doesn't look too bad and I like it. The other outfit is okay, not very springlike and a bit plain.
Unfortunately your rodeo drive shoot isn't finished so I can barely judge it, but from what I can see, I think you could have achieved a nice crazy fashion shoot but sadly it doesn't exist.

Rafael: The outfits look lovely, I especially like the one with the floral-print skirt. The white one is a little plain though, I'm definitely missing a bag and a colourful eye-catcher.
As the rodeo drive shoot is unfinished I cannot judge it.
Cathy: You're skirt outfit is really cute! It has a Victorian touch which I really like and the makeup is cute. I'm not a big fan of the trousers in the second outfit, but overall, it is quite okay.

Tania: I'm sorry but the first outfit is a total mess. So many textures and patterns all together, it doesn't make any sense to me.  The only two things I'm liking on it is your hairstyle and the lip colour. The second outfit is better but you're really lacking accessories and is a bit too simple, also I don't like so much that you've used (on both) real backgrounds and just blurred them a bit, next time I'd use just stardoll ones.
I read in the comments that you unfortunately had some technical problems and were not able to finish the rode drive task, which will make it a bit hard to judge but from what I see of what you did, I can tell you I like the concept but again I really don't like the combination of patterns, also I don't know if you were still working on it but there's almost no shading at all in the graphic which is super important.


Manda: I think you created two nice spring outfits. While your first look is more chic, the second one is more playful and casual. I actually prefer your second look, I really like the blouse, but I think the bag should have been in similar shades of the top. Some bracelets would have been nice as well but overall I think you look nice even though the outfits could have been more of a statement.
I'm sitting a little on the fence about your rodeo drive shoot. I really like the setting of posing in front of a Chanel store on rodeo drive but I think your pose and outfit are way not crazy enough. I'd even say the post is boring and the outfit is near to that. Though the pants do look amazing and I wish you had put them more into the front, sadly the great effect of the pattern disappears behind the shopping bag. Luckily you've choosen this crazy diva-weave hairstyle which makes you look stunning.

Rafael: First of all, the set where you chose to present your outfits instantly reminded me of "Sound Of Music". The green grass, the mountains, the blue sky.... sorry I'm drifting off.
So, in my opinion, your first outfit is okay, but it isn't my favorite. I don't like how the shoes don't match the nude tone of the bag/blouse. And I would have preferred a different bag as well because this one looks rather lame. But I really like the skirt and the blouse.
The second is better, but not exceptionally good either. I think the colors of the purse don't really match the outfit. I'm also missing some accessories, such as golden braceletts or a necklace.
The photoshoot is definitely better than the first task, I love the outfit and the pose. I also like that you chose to shoot in front of the Chanel store a.k.a. sacred fashion temple.
The hair is not really my fave though.
Cathy: Your outfits are cute and they match the spring theme. Try to think more out of the box for the next task, but this is nevertheless a decent styling, well done!
Tania: While surely both outfits are quite spring alike, they feel so simple to me.. The combinations are nice but I'd like  to see a bit more daring look, also in the first outfit it seems like you're wearing leggins with a top and that's like a big fashion no no.
As for your rodeo drive shoot, it might not be an too edgy pose, but your hair & clothes are really cool, I'm loving the patterns. Gorgeous doll & good technique, you surely have potential in this competition.


Manda: Fabulous outfits!! I absolutely adore the first one, it is such a pretty look, even though it might even fit better into a summer night club look. The second outfit is beautiful. The dress fits your doll so well and I love your makeup and hairdo! Maybe you could have added some accessoires but nonetheless you look stunning.
The outfit in your rodeo drive shoot looks really nice and it suits your doll perfectly, you look great and the makeup is beautiful, BUT I don't really see the crazyness in here. Neither the outfit nor the makeupor hairstyle (which is just real hair, edited onto your doll's heard) scream "crazy" for me. If the task would have been "Fashionably Down the Street" then you would have gotten a full score, but this is kinda underwhelming. The pose is fine, just a bit normal as well. I love those shoes tho.

Rafael: WOW your first task is breath-taking!!
The silky long dress is marvelous and it looks great on you. I think it was clever not to use any accessories because the dress already does the whole magic. The second one is just as stunning, I love how you're wearing a net dress on top of a vibrant yellow body. The shoes give the outfit a glamerous touch.
The rodeo drive photo looks like you're a diva strolling around jn LA and then you're suddenly caught by paparazzi. It's very sexy and lady-like. I really liked it on the first look, but looking closer I noticed that the hair is just real hair which you cropped out and pasted onto your doll's head which is quite disappointing to me. Also, the outfit isn't really crazy fashion so you didn't really stick to the task. Next time pay more attention to the task and don't copy and paste things.
Cathy: You know how to style your doll and you've shown this in the entries. I just wish you had paid more attention to detail.
Tania: As for your outfits, your doll looks stunning, it's simple but very beautiful, specially the second outfit but a purse would have made it perfect.
In your rodeo drive shoot your doll looks stunning and I'm loving so much this graphic, your graphic technique is just great. It's not super edgy though, it's a statement but not high fashion type of graphic. I'm looking foward to see more of you though.


Manda: Your outfits are stunning! Your first outfit is a real eyecatcher... the silver fur jacket matches so well with the clean, soft white and grey shades! Lov' it.
Your second outfit is really pretty as well, a very interesting combination of the top and skirt and I think it works really well with your doll's hairstyle, makeup and accessoires.
The Rodeo Drive photoshoot looks gorgeous. I love this outfit, it looks really fashionably crazy and the hair and makeup suit your doll perfectly. I think the shading on the right arm looks really awkward though and you should increase your highlighting on black materials, you barely see there any shading at all.

Rafael: I fell in LOVE with your first outfit!! The hat, the cute crop top + fur jacket, the bag, the hair... everything looks perfect and so fashionable! It's one of the most beautiful outfits in my opinion.
On the other hand, the second outfit is rather boring and kinda... I don't know, it's just not my cup of tea I guess.
I love the photo from the Rodeo drive shoot. You look endlessly sexy in this outfit, hair and make-up are nice as well. The shading is a bit odd though so make sure to work on that
Cathy: I like your dress outfit, it's something different and the clothes match each other well. The outfit is the trousers is extremely posh, maybe a simpler, more chilled top would have made it look less diva-esque, but it certainly is a statement!
Tania: I am really liking the first outfit, very chic and glam, only if you'd have acessorized it a bit more it'd be perfect. The second one if gorgeous as well though having two larger pieces at the waist is often not the best choice, if the  upper part is large the other should be a bit tight and vice versa. Regardless I can really see your style on them, great work!
I'm loving the edginess of your rodeo drive shoot! While there's quite some rough parts than needed to be a bit softenned and some more shading, I really like the idea and your doll looks super fierce!


Manda: You did a great job on your spring outfits. Your first one could have been a little more springlike, but because of the denim jeans in combination with the pastel yellow of the sweater I do get at least a tiny bit of spring vibes. I really like the second outfit tho, I think the trousers are super pretty and your doll looks really chic and stylish in combination of the black blazer and white fabrics.
Your "Rode Drive" shoot is not on Rodeo Drive, which is bad bad bad. You just took a random background of a green meadow. Also the outfit cannot really be considered as crazy fashion. In all honesty, I don't get your concept of this shoot at all.

Rafael: The first two outfits are really pretty.
The "rodeo drive" shoot is honestly catastrophic. The outfit looks rather tacky and the background doesn't look like the rodeo drive in LA (?)... at least to me.
Cathy: Your outfits are simple, but you succeed to look stylish in them and thanks to some flowery details, it's something my doll would definitely wear in spring! I'm a big fan of your hairstyling and makeup, too, looks perfect for spring.
Tania: While the outfits are simple they are very well put together, your doll looks great on them. For the first one I feel like something is missing, maybe a clutch instead of the purse you chose and a leather coat would have made the outfit more complete and with a bigger twist. I loved the shoes you chose though, they go super well with the trousers. For the second one just a purse is missing, but nice anyhow.
The graphic is a bit too rough and the shading needs really more work. I don't know if you're a begginner but if you are, it's a good start but I'd advise you to practise as much as you can, I see potential. On a less positive note, you completely missed this task's topic. No crazyness and no rodeo drive.


Manda: I love the way you presented your outfits! I am literally in love with your first outfit, it is super pretty and the floral pattern works perfectly with your doll. The bag might have been a little too much but it still looks nice overall. Your second outfit is really interesting, one one hand I like the color and style combination but on the other hand I am not sure about the combo of that skirt with the socks and the top because, as Cathy said, it gives the look a kind of sexy schoolgirl vibe which wasn't necessarily part of this task.
The Rodeo Drive photoshoot is stunning! I love this outfit a lot and the hair is perfect. The pose works really well with this outfit and I think you did a good job portraying the complexity of the top and skirt. The beanie could have been left out though, it hides your beautiful hairstyle and in my opinion the shoes would look better in an equal black tone. Technique-wise, the head is a little bit too big in proportion to the rest of the doll's body and you could have stretched the legs more so it would have given your doll an even fiercer look.

Rafael: Your outfits are really great, especially the first one is really gorgeous. I love the color scheme and the combo of the shoes, patterned skinny jeans and the necklace. I only think that the bag doesn't stand out well enough from the outfit because it also has a floral pattern, therefore I would have either kept it simple or made it stand out in a different way, e.g. a purse (either pink or nude to match the shoes).
The second outfit is very sexy and well-combined! I also love how you presented the outfits in a modern and playful way. Overall the first task is well done!
The rodeo drive shoot is equally great. I love this amazing outfit! You look cool, sexy and very edgy. I like the pose and also the hair. Overall I'd say it's one of the best entries so well done my dear!
Cathy: Nice presentation! Your first outfit is cute and has a nice colour scheme, whereas the second outfit just doesn't fit in my eyes. The white socks combined with the risky skirt and the short top have a sexy-schoolgirl-vibe which is not at all what I want to see this spring. Also make sure your makeup and hairstyling fit the outfit, they might be a bit too grunge for your outfits.
Tania: Ugh your doll is so cute I can't handle it! I'm loving your style though, sweet but sassy, I really want for sure see more of you. The outfits are great, my favourite is surely the second (one of my favourite of this task overall) but both are very complete and stylish. The edit, hairs & makeup also really complement them.
I really like your rodeo drive shoot. Dat hair, dat outfit.. At first it seemed that the head was a tiny bit too big for the body but now I'm not so sure anymore, regardless I think you did a great work, while it's not super edgy it's for sure sassy and modern, also i like a lot the shading.
