Charmaine’s SUPERMODELME.tv Blog Diary – after today the girls will be competing for final 3….

Things are sizzling up and I can sense the models are becoming mindful of the battle ahead.

In my experience, walking into work in the morning and observing your reception gives you a rough gauge of how the day will turn out. Right before Geoff Ang, Marcus AC and I gave the models the brief for the photo shoot, there was an odd silence in the makeup room. Game On.

As nonchalant as they tried to act when told about their challenge involved squid and partial water submersion… each girl was plotting their own impression and execution of the shoot.From start to finish.I could see, as a model, how well they ALL dealt with the situation and performed as best as they could.

Evelyn started, got into the mood immediately and slammed the picture looking hot. Kathlene squirmed and resisted a bit but worked well with her expressions. Even Geoff Ang commented on how she had improved. Fiona is so consistent, it works against her and she appears boring with only one look and Christabel still couldn’t get her face angles right although her body looked incredible in most of the pictures. Anna transformed into a sea goddess and made the whole task look effortless.So as challenging as the task was, each girl knew, even before they were told, which areas they had neglected.

Compared to the usual banter in the changing room, and the giggling that use to be hushed silent regularly, there was a sleepy, contemplative mood.

I sense alliances forming and I can almost see the girls plotting in their heads how to work their assets to their best advantage.

There are only 5 girls left and after today…. The girls will be competing for final 3….

Singapore’s 1st SUPERMODEL – Charmaine Harn

Tongue in Chic – Q+A: Charmaine Harn

Harper’s Bazaar Singapore ranks her as one of Asia’s most fashionable women. Actress Maggie Q places her “right at the top” of the modelling circuit. And this year, Charmaine Harn can add her starring performances on the Audi Fashion Fest ’09 runway into her ever-growing list of plaudits and milestones.

This 31-year-old supermodel can thank her lucky stars when she was personally chosen as Singapore’s sole representative in the “Ford Supermodel of the World” competition in 1996. Since then she has continued to sizzle for high fashion brands on the catwalks and editorial spreads in Paris, Milan, Taiwan, Shanghai, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Jakarta to name a few.

Currently based in Singapore, this jetsetter is also the host of Singapore’s reality model search, SUPERMODELME.tv. Charmaine lets us in on why she almost left the modeling industry, who she got star struck by and whether she is winding down on her modeling career.

Are you GAY in the closet need a HandBag Date . . .


Watch SUPERMODELME.tv become a fan: Starts June 16th 2009

http://www.facebook.com/pages/SupermodelmeTV/80974482419

Found on mUmBRELLA.com.au

Feel that joining a traditional dating website is too much of emotional commitment?

Then Dr Mumbo has just the Aussie website for you.

Blind Date II blind date

– “no commitment, no strings, just great company” is the latest atttempt to tap into Australia’s dating scene.

Aimed at professional singles who have a function to go to and don’t want to turn up on their own, the service provides the “handbag” of a date to join them.

While it all sounds vaguely reminiscent of the Bruce Willis – Kim Basinger movie Blind Date, Dr Mumbo can’t decide if this particular idea is brillliant or barking.

Naturally you can follow it on twitter @handbagpartner

APLINK thinks the name ” Handbag Partners” suggests it’s a great way to cover up being gay by registering at Handbag Partners and being able to HAND pick your blind date (handbag) for your next business function 🙂 so if Are you GAY in the closet need a HandBag Date . . . maybe signup with www.handbagpartners.com.au
