A month ago, Dubai’s most loved fashion brand, Splash and your favourite magazine, Masala!, announced a fun competition that brought together the most stylish stud(s) and diva(s) in town. How, you ask?
Thousands of contestants posted pictures of themselves on social media, in their stylish best. In no time, our Instagram tags were ringing with entries from girls and guys who aspired to make it to the top. Up for grabs was a Dhs 10,000 wardrobe from Spalsh, a complete make over with a photoshoot to be featured in the magazine, and to top it all, a chance to rub shoulders on the red carpet with the stars at Masala! Awards, on the 13th of December 2017. An opportunity of a lifetime, isn’t it?
Skimming through the thousands of fashionistas, we finally selected five girls and five guys who made it to our final list. Once we had the chosen ten in mind, they were quickly called to the sprawling Landmark office in Dubai Marina, for a final round of selection, and boy, was it a fun affair.
Each fashionista and their guy counterparts, answered questions related to fashion, that the judges threw their way. Considering the panel was made up of Splash’s ace designer, Lascelles Symon and Masala!’s Editor-in- chief, Lekha Menon, answering the questions was no easy task!
After a gruelling round, the contestants were asked to imitate a red carpet walk, so the judges could check out their glam quotient, and honestly, they didn’t disappoint!
Needless to say, the selection was no easy process, but our judges did a fab job, and we had the final two! Any guesses? The lucky girl to win this golden experience was Rania Pagarani and the stud Priyank Shah, who’ll be seen on the Masala! Awards red carpet.
