As in the previous year, the Czech Republic produced the winner of the famous modeling contest's 2014 world finals. In a major boost to her career, the young Barbora Podzimkova has scored a three-year contract with the agencies of the Elite Group.
At the 31st World Final, held Tuesday in Shenzen, China, finalists from Elite Model Look contests around the world competed for the global title. The competition was overseen by Victoria da Silva, president of Elite Model Look International, and Vick Mihaci, president of Elite Model Management.
It is worth noting that some of the world-famous models revealed by the contest at the national level -- including Cindy Crawford, Gisele Bündchen and Sigrid Agren -- did not win the global finals.
Barbora: a name to remember
Aged 15 and measuring 5'11" tall, the Czech model Barbora Podzimkova prevailed over 42 young rivals as this year's international winner. As a result, her pouty lips and slender silhouette are sure to make an appearance in campaigns and on catwalks in the near future.
