Miss TWA 2011

Posted in Contests by Piper Hanriot on October 6, 2011

In May this year Bee Dumpling at The White Armory announced a modelling contest for “Miss TWA 2011”.  Unlike last year’s contest, only one model would win the coveted crown and title.  On 1 June 2011 the contest opened and I started to receive applications from women only in the TWA family.  I received over 30 applications.  From this, 14 women were chosen to go through to stage two, which was a styling contest.  This took place in July.  From the photo entries posted on flickr only 5 women were chosen to go through to the third and final stage.  Unfortunately one of the women had to pull out, so we were then left with only 4.  For the final stage, we held a fashion show at the TWA runway on Monday 28 August.  All of the women are winners with third place going to Wynter Frostwych, second place was a tie with Aphrodite Brianna and Enelya Swansong and in first place and the winner is Irina Strazytski.

After the contest, I met up with this fabulous lady, together our good friends Eleya Kenin and Synthel Roxley for a photoshoot.  Whilst in the shoot, I also interviewed Irina about The White Armory contest.

How do you feel being Miss TWA 2011?

Awesome! It’s a dream come true to me. Gah, I don’t know how to say this right in english, but I also auditioned in MVW and I didn’t make it, but to me, becoming miss TWA was a bigger dream come true than making it in the MVW finale.

What was going through your mind when you heard that you had won?

I was speechless of surprise and of course really really happy.  I’m not good at winning anything, cause I’m always speechless and then I just stand like a retard without being able to say anything.

Are you excited about being in fashion week this month?

Yup! I love these pretty gowns and it’ll be amazing to present them on a runway, too.

What or who inspired you to go into modelling in sl?

My best friend Eleya Kenin. She started to model long before me, and then after I got back from 6 month-ish break, I decided to give it a try, too, cause I had found it interesting what she was doing. You gotta change my wording into a bit better english, too.

So what is next on the agenda for Irina Strazytski?

Today dinner (yes, always cooking 😛 ) but seriously speaking I have my MVW 105 class coming in the weekend.

So there you have it folks, a classy supermodel, wonderful photographer in SL and also a down to earth, fun loving lady who loves cooking.  All the gowns you see in this stunning collection of photos were designed by the amazingly talented Bee Dumpling at The White Armory.
