Last Friday I was lucky enough to be invited to a media conference for the collaboration of Ford Supermodels and KL Formula 1 happening at STYLO Academy in Telawi, Bangsar. I went there with Wynn as this was my first time being invited to this sort of event (as a small time blogger), plus it could be an opportunity for her since she's already modelling now and perhaps she could join the supermodel search.
Oh anyways the collaboration was held in order to search for the ultimate supermodel to represent Malaysia to the finale which will be held in New York (Can anybody sing with me 'in New York! Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do!') sometime in August next year and as everyone knows Formula 1 is one of the most awaited event of the year therefore as the promotion for KL F1 will be done in 12 major cities all over the country - so will the search for Ford Supermodels will go. You could be living in the depths of Sarawak but still participate in this search if you have what it takes!
Datuk Nancy Yeoh, Organising Chairman of Ford Models Supermodels of the World Malaysia 2011 and Datuk Razlan Razali, CEO of Sepang International Circuit.
This totally reminds me of ANTM - girls from all over the country sending in audition tapes + pictures to Tyra Banks and seeing her pick out all the gems, polishing them little by little and sending them out there to be the best they can be (even if they don't win in the end). Anyways, the winners will get these amazing prices
1st Winner - USD250,000 contract with Ford Models.
2nd Winner - USD150,000 contract with Ford Models.
3rd Winner - USD100,000 contract with Ford Models.
Along with other prizes which will be revealed on 11th January 2011 (nice date eh?) in conjunction of the launching for Kuala Lumpur F1.
If you think you have what it takes to be a supermodel - with the right height (around 5'10" and above) and a good look, you might have a chance! Around 24 models will be picked out for the semi-finals and out of that, 12 for the finals which will happen sometime in April 2010. It is open for all Malaysian women age 18 and above.
If you're interested to know more about the competition, just call Ford Supermodel Hotline at 014-7297541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Apart from that, Sepang International Circuit if currently offering a Special Early Bird discount package for KL F1 and prices can be as low as RM30 for tickets!

Anyways thanks to Daephen from Stylo Academy for inviting me! I also got to meet new people there, I'm the only person who doesn't have a name card (I have my Sony name card but what's the relevance of giving out that one LOL). Never knew being a blogger you'd be asked for your name card as well haha!
