"Midterms!!!! OH MY!!! "Mini Skirts @ CWS Theme

Hello, Gia is freaking out now, time for tests!!!!  Do you have anxiety or get nervous with tests?  Gia does and part one of midterms was December 17, 2010 on the Main Stage @ CWS.  Feel confident I can do it but when someone says test I am the Cowardly Lion on the Wizard of OZ or something.  Yes down deep I am a big chicken.  Going on stage for this part of midterms made me a total wreck.  But I did it, I made it (sorta with a few minor mistakes).  Was great fun, everyone was awesome.  We had some overweight avi's, gorgeous (who says full figure isnt beautiful),  and OH Santa Came too, how much fun is that. And lots of pretty contestants in mini skirts.
First Place: Sidney Abbot,
Second Place: Ntaly Anton and

Third Place Gia Ludlow

"The Red Carpet"

The movie stars came out one after the other to take their place on stage, What a fun night with Indian Princess,  Katheryn Hepburn, John Travolta, Cruella de Vil.  It was a full night with many contestants but fun was had by all.  The real surprise came for me when I was selected by the judge for 3rd Place, 3rd, my very first Styling and I placed, it is so exciting I can't wait till I am able to do it again. 

1st Place Winner:Alelitz Fierenza says "I am here to represent one of my ultimate favorite actresses of this century, she is a chameleon in my opinion when she portrays a character, the time you tend to forget that there is an actor behind the character in the movie! hehe I am talking about the one and only Reese Witherspoon  Reese Witherspoon."

2nd Place Winner Adrianna Applewhyte was "Dressed as Kitten may have been on the night she received her 1st Oscar in 1960 for her role in “Butterfeild 8” as Gloria Wandrous"

3rd: Place Gia Ludlow (oh this was me :)) I pick Cruella de Vil, my favorite movie star Glenn Close. Cruella de Vil is a fictional character and the primary villain in Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians. She played many roles femme Fatale, Dangerous Liaisons and Fatal Attraction are a few , my favorite of course was 101 Dalmatian's. She also did many musicals. Her awards are numerous. She is tenacious and funny. In real life 15 years of her younger life was spent in a cult community. She married in 2006 to David Shaw, Glenn close has a daughter named Ann from a previous marriage. She is fun and mysterious.
This Styling was so fun but only because Anrol, Steve, our instructors and mentors made this possible for us.  A Special Thank you to Veronica for Judging this contest she had the hardest job of the night.   Thank you all so much.    Gia

Blogging Class

Are you confused, Well join the crowd, no I didn't go from newbie island to blogging.  Since I have learned Basic Formation, Beach Formation and will be learning a 123 formation.  When I first heard these terms I was like formation?  Well it is the stages where Actual Fashion Shows take place.  We learned modeling etiquette and the value of modeling and being a part of a family.  Then there was Blogging Class OMG!! what did I get myself into? 

Well Ms Tabytha showed us the in's and out's of blogging and you know what I think I LIKE IT....:))

Follow along and share my journey into the world of Blogging and becoming a model.  If you have a dream to join, click the blog and come be a part of it.


My First Blog, My Second Life Beginning

I landed in a place where new people go in Second Life (newbie island) and did I ever wonder what the heck am I doing here :)     I took my time and I went through each little capsule looking room.  One was for moving, one was for chatting with other confused souls like myself,  I did learn a little about inventory wished I had paid more attention to that one (lol) as I digress I went on to sitting, now if that wasn't a concept I was already exhausted.  Then I think a bird kissed me (a colored parrot), then I took a 2 minute flying lesson, whoaaa where am I going....then I knew this was going to be loads of fun and frustration.   I didn't give up though, I hit a board and it took me to a place called Welcome Island, when I landed the first person I spoke with was Jos Darkfire, I decided this was safe enough I would talk to him, he couldn't hurt me here.  Found out he lives 400 miles from me and we have many things in common.  We spent a couple days roaming there and then one day we met this lady who told us about the things we could do in second life.  Jos said he wanted to explore, I said I wanted to do fashion.  Ms Laylah Lecker told us her favorite thing fashion and modeling.  So she, Ms Laylah adopted me and Jos and we are now proud scholars of  University of Classic With Style. To Anrol and Steve I Thank You For Taking A Chance On Me. So I will follow my journey best I know how. Thank you. Gia Ludlow
