MVW 2011 Official Press Presentation

MVW 2011 Official Press Presentation

6 Nov 2010 – The finalists nervously queue backstage. At the end of the runway awaits the best read, influential writers of Second Life with tricky questions about hopes and dreams. This is the Miss Virtual World 2011 Official Press Presentation. A favorable impression today adds instant credibility to a finalist’s campaign to become the next Miss Virtual World.

Miss Bahamas – Roe Woodford

What do YOU think about people who may appear to be less “talented” yet aspire to be models or have shops or start businesses with what many would call “crappy skills”?
If SL was gone tomorrow… what would you miss most?
What do you personally stand to gain from entering Miss Virtual World?
If you could be a food item on the South Beach Diet, what would you be and why?
OK. That last one wasn’t really a question.
For three hours the finalists answered questions. It was amazing to witness these beautiful ladies, all trying so hard. I can see in each presentation the personal struggle. How do I stand out? How do I get noticed? How do I make this a positive opportunity? I know those feelings. My heart went out to all.

Tres Beau Katina by Kimmera Madison

The finalists were rated on more than just their answers to the press. All the ladies were asked to add a unique style to the same dress, Katina from Tres Beau by Kimmera Madison, a flapper with a lovely cloche hat. I thought it was a brilliant choice. The dress evoked the classy and fabulous Coco Chanel who cautioned “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

What do I remember today… feathers, flowers, jewelry, eyeshadow… oh, and Roe Woodford.

Today, at the 2011 MVW Official Press Presentation, there were successes and not-so-successes. It’s the start of a long and serious competition. Some of these ladies are already showing strongly. Can they maintain? Some of these ladies have a way to go. Can they catch up? Only one thing is clear. Ladies… it’s on!
