The Top Model 2021 Awards event was held in September at the 5 star Royal Horseguards Hotel in central London.

Featuring various categories, the model finalists in the UK Editorial and the Over 25’s category wore Aga Couture, Louise Rose Couture and Desire Avenue.

Aga Couture London

Aga Couture is a London based fashion house devoted to creating handmade, beautiful, elegant feminine clothes for the modern and stylish woman.

 Paige from Liverpool and winner of the UK Editorial Fresh Face (under 19yrs) Award sashayed down the runway in Aga’s tropical print crop top and maxi wrap skirt. Paige also won Public Charity Award – raising the most money for the Top Model Foundation charity (see details re the charity at the bottom of this article)

Maisie from Staffordshire, the winner of the UK Editorial Fashionista (20–29yrs) also wore Aga – a rich burgundy wetlook top and brocade print trousers.

Hannah from Craigavon won the first runner up place and looked classically chic in a LBD.

Second runner up Freya from Surrey looked angelic in a white dress with lace inserts but added a dramatic touch with the black corset belt.

Staying with the classic black was (L–R):

Natasha from London who won the Beach Body Award, Holly from Edinburgh in a striking  one shoulder jumpsuit and Zoe from Lincoln in a figure hugging dress with ruffle hemline.

Our Favourites for A Day at the Races

 Katie from Dublin won the Photographic Award and looked a picture in the striking leopard print mini dress. 

Ailsa from Monmouthshire’s chiffon dress would keep you looking and feeling cool on sunny hot day at the races and Julia from Leeds’ strapless red dress with statement bow would look wonderful worn with an oversized hat for any race (except Royal Ascot Rules).

The jazzy ’70s print on Mollie from Surrey’s maxi slip dress juxtaposes glamour and a dash of  festive vibe – great for  Glorious Goodwood. 

Erika from Bedford goes classic with a touch of vintage in a white prom style dress.

For those cooler autumn racedays, Isabella from Merseyside’s velvet jumpsuit will keep you warm and stylish.

Louise Rose Couture is a British evening wear and bridal label, creating stunning unique gowns for ethereal dreamers featuring vintage accents for the modern woman.

Laurita from Surrey won the Over 25’s Award for 36yrs plus and looked ethereal in Louise Rose’s flowing bridal gown which was quite apt as the gown is part of the Ethereal Dreams collection. Adorned with a dash of colourful floral appliques and separate tulle sleeves

First runner up, Joanna from Surrey, also wore a gown from the Ethereal Dreams collection.
