These are the basics of being a model, who needs to know the right expression to project in each setting as required, for example, wild, sexy, high fashion, vogue, casual, cool, etc. While all the contestants were busy absorbing this new knowledge, it is essential to create one’s own style and look.

the girls clap to encourage themselves

According to Wilson, who would be presented with The 2012 Outstanding Young Malaysian Award this Saturday, to be a catwalk model, one needs to have the height. Besides this, the most important asset would be positive attitude. A successful model has to be humble, self-disciplined, punctual, willing to accept advice and feedback and also be able to handle gossips, if any.
