These are the photos I have done for the Donna Flora Style Contest. The most challenging part of the contest is to style around a certain sets of clothing and jewelry, so the challenges are not just on styling and adjusting prims but also on creativity. I really really wanted to win this contest, not because of the cash prizes but for the complete courses with the Mimmi Boa Modeling Academy and the opportunity to work with some very talented models in the industry eventually. I have met some really stylish and experienced teachers and models from the Academy and the SoloEvane Agency and I am very keen to polish my modeling skills by learning from them. This will be a big bonus on top of being able to indulge myself in all the Donna Flora clothing and jewelry.
Hence, I have spent sometime working on the style and pictures and following are the results. As we are allow to submit three photos so I took full advantage of that.
Here is a close shot of my first style. I kept the colors but let the picture remain as vintage looking. For my style, I glammed up the look by using two necklaces and tinted them to look gold. I also add on a pair of gloves and wore a vintage / venetian looking hair.

The second photo is a complete old picture effect. I did not add too much of dust and scratches in the photos in order not to distract the looks of my avi and styling.

My third submission is just a simple picture with a daytime look that I put together around the Donnatelle Mesh Dress. I love how the dress is shaped and how all the colors like black, gold, white with a little dots of blue all come together and I added a drapping pearl necklace to bring more attention to the upper body. I also tinted one of the necklaces to black so it looks like the collar of the dress.
