Noelia Castro and Álvaro Silveira, faces of the Elite Model Look 2013
Álvaro Silveira and Noelia Castro are best male and female models of the Elite Model Look 2013 contest. They modelled in front of a jury of specialists in the fashion world, who considered the value of the 11 candidates of this year's edition. The final of the contest was held in the DHUB building, in the frame of the 080 Barcelona Fashion, and it rounded off the 12th edition of the Catalan fashion show.


The jury consisted of the professionals Gael Marie, director of Elite Model Management; Miguel Rodríguez, manager of the Consortium for Trades, Crafts and Fashion of Catalonia; Victoria Da Silva, international director of Elite Model Look; Esther García, casting director at the 080; and Wall Torres, director of Uomo Elite. They were in charge of evaluating the 11 candidates of the current year's edition. 


Noelia Castro and Álvaro Silveira's image and personality on the catwalk, together with their clear potential, were the characteristics that the jury highlighted about them. Besides, the young Galician female model will represent Spain in the world final, to be held next December in Shanghai . 

The models wore outfits by Le coq sportif, McGregor, Naf-Naf, Seafollie and Arthur, showing three different looks: casual, swimwear and formal.


This competition aims to offer year after year young girls and boys the opportunity of entering the fashion world and starting an international modelling career. No doubt, it is an ideal springboard that once helped models such as Nieves Álvarez, Cindy Crawford, Stéphanie Seymour, Linda Evangelista and Gisele Bundchen launching their careers.


The search was made through 5 castings, which were open to the general public and went over the Spanish territory: from Barcelona to Madrid, through Alicante, Málaga and A Coruña. The semifinal, during which the 11 final candidates were chosen, was held in Madrid in the last month of July.
