The second live audition for the CoC took place on March 30, last Saturday, and I was one of the 18 girls choosen to walk in front of the judges. The theme given was “Soft Alterntive”, one of the fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2012. There were some information that I found on the web but surprising not a lot, not to mention sample images or stylings. With what I managed to find and to digest, I took inspiration from the phrase “graceful sensuality with old-fashioned charm. Compose a refreshing romanticism, without naiveté”.
Soft alternative also means soft colours with a vibrant touch so here is my styling.
I used lace and pencil skirt to express the old fashioned charm, and the deep V collar on the lace blouse to enhance sensuality. However, to remain chic and current, I wore a short bob hair, added a beautiful hair dress, a modern clutch and a signature ring to the overall styling. My pop colour would be the tango or orange colour from the skirt and ring.
It was rather challenging to pick the right runway poses for this lace blouse. As you can see it has a lot of flexi prims from the shoulder to the waist. I had at one point considered changing the blouse but it was such a beautiful, feminine and delicate piece that speaks everything about grace, antique and sensuality, I just refused to take it off, leaving pose hunting as the only option.
Thank god the efforts paid off and I am one of the 7 lucky finalists choosen at the second audition, joining another 9 finalists that were choosen at the first audition, for the finale. 🙂 In the next couple of weeks, leading to the finale on May 6, I will be sharing our activities, progress and my experience as well as styling challenges here, so stay tuned for more!
