Birnie’s winning tips
– Dress in a stylish, elegant and age appropriate manner.
– Wear shoes you can walk in and always feel comfortable in what you are wearing.
– Don’t wear too much make-up – it should be natural. I love natural beauty.
– Personality is very important – you need to have fun and just be yourself on the stage.
– Enjoy every moment.
Holder has almost 9 years of modelling experience. She has won various competitions such as model of the year, Mr en Mej Jansie, Mej Persoonlikheid and Top 1 Model. She was part of the HmH School of Modelling and Deportment.
Holder’s winning tips:
– When walking on stage always look at all the judges as well as the crowd. As nerve-racking as it might be, it is very important to interact with the judges and crowd.
– Spend a few minutes on stage as it give the judges enough time to check for all the points.
– If wearing open shoes or high heels, you need to have a strap as flip flops and the sound of shoes clicking will cost you points. Those from older groups can wear high heels without a strap as long as it fits properly and they can walk in them.
– Bra straps should not show and no underwear should show through your clothing.
– Have fun and smile.
