Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model, which kicked off at 9pm this week on Sky Living TV, has a hot Dubai connection and we've got more on it! Finalists on the show were jetted off to Dubai to impress the judges with a sultry swimwear photoshoot and they were styled and ready for beach glam camera action wearing Dubai’s very own Bare Essentials swimwear. Check out the pictures right here.
Filmed at Atlantis the Palm, episodes one and two have the girls modelling the latest gorgeous collection from Moontide at Bare Essentials. With the panel of celebrity judges featuring Elle Macpherson, Tyson Beckford (American supermodel and a former frontman for Ralph Lauren) and Whitney Port with guest fashion designer Julien Mcdonald, swimwear boutique owners Jan Curtis and Cheryl Mason said, “It’s a fabulous opportunity for us at Bare Essentials and for the Moontide label which we sell exclusively here as the show made its debut filming in Dubai for some unprecedented beach glamour. The feedback we’ve had so far from both the stylists and the girls has been very flattering and the whole film crew and models seem to have so enjoyed their stay here. Dubai is made for this kind of show so it’s wonderful to be part of it all and we wish all the contestants the very best of luck as the competition heats up.”
While filming in Dubai, the excitement built as two of the 20 finalists were eliminated and another had to leave due to pressure. As head judge Elle is in her third year of leading the show now in its eighth season, expect lots more twists and turns like the surprise trip to Dubai.
And there's sure to be more excitement in next week’s episode two featuring Bare Essentials as the girls fight it out in Dubai. We can't wait to check it out! Tune into Sky Living on Mondays to catch more of the girls competing in Bare Essentials.
