Top Model of Colour crowns its winners for 2010
Top Model of Colour (TMC) is a modelling competition with a difference. It’s been going strong for 5 years and takes competitors from black, mixed, Hispanic and other ethnic minorities who are typically under represented in the modelling world. One male and one female winner is chosen from a honed, toned and stunning mix of finalist’s who have been whittled down from hundreds of applicants. With the backing of the TMC corporation the winners are guided towards supermodel greatness within the UK and Worldwide (former winners have had shoots and catwalk opportunities as far reaching as Gambia and New York). I headed down to the finals this weekend to get in on some front row action as a judge om the night for the men’s category.
The chiseled and lithe contestants were put through their paces in swim, casual and eveningwear categories whilst their catwalk potential and future supermodel credentials were scrutinised by a judging panel that made Simon Cowell look friendly (not me though, I was nice as pie honest!!)
Jason Best and Nana Afua Antwi were named as the male and female winners.
With stunning looks and bodies that place them on par with any budding supermodels out there the sky is the limit for these two.
Jason Best- Winner of the Men's Category
Nana Afua Antwi- Winner of the Women's Category
I salute this enterprise soldier style. TMC strives to get diversity recognised within the modelling world and alongside other initiatives like the Black Vogue Issue, its making great strides in getting the fashion world to stand up and notice the beauty within all races.
