Effortless in 2017: The Ten Men To Watch For At Mr International Málaga 2018

As we stated previously, what makes a male competitor great is his charisma. He needs to project approachability, to be kind of man that men want to emulate and women (and some men) want to be with. Charisma has to be EFFORTLESS, it is not something you can learn or practice.

On October 21, 2017, a very strong group of 45 young men will compete to become Málaga’s representative for the title of Mr International Spain 2018. In our opinion, these are the 10 EFFORTLESS young men to watch for (in alphabetical order, according to the locality they represent) in this competition:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like we said, it is a very strong group of contestants, so anything can happen. You can meet all the guys at the competition’s Facebook page.

NOTEWORTHY: Team Málaga

Recently I had the honour to become acquainted with Team Málaga, the group of young professionals responsible for the selection of the delegates from the province of Málaga to the national competitions Miss World Spain and Mr International Spain. Team Málaga’s work is world class and they surpass that of many well known national competitions.

Their contestants are selected through various local competitions, as well as a rigorous casting process. They promote their contestants extensively through social media and events and attract renowned sponsors for their activities.

Once selected Miss World Málaga and Mr International Málaga can count on the support of the whole team with a tight, yearlong agenda of activities and in their further preparations for their national presentation. Seeing the winners interact with the Team, the mutual respect is evident.

In addition, Team Málaga has also prepared a number of Spanish delegates to international competitions such as

The other members of the Team are Virginia Álvarez, Hairstylist/Make-up Artist, Darío Ávila (Choreographer) and Luis Manuel Gómez Pozo (Photographer).

 

 

Be on the lookout for Team Málaga, as we foresee you will be hearing a lot from them in the years to come.

 

 

NOTEWORTHY: This Is How You Do Pageant Photography

It is that time of year again when the most successful national pageant in the world, Miss Venezuela, gets underway. The unveiling of the official photos of this year’s contestants reveals the reason for the success of Osmel Sousa’s enterprise. Venezuela always manages to take the contest to new heights, this year through photography.

Miss Venezuela photographer Alejandro Lee captures the imagination which images that look made right on the (IMG) Miss Universe stage.

Everything is on point, the styling, the shoes and the retro swimsuits, which highlight the hourglass figures.

It shows the care and attention to detail that goes into the planning of the Miss Venezuela pageant and the performance of their winners internationally.

Regretfully, most national pageants chose to hate rather than emulate the Miss Venezuela Organization. Yet, nothing succeeds like success!

 

Effortless in 2017: Leonardo Nobre, Vice-Mister Brasil CNB 2017 & Mister Brazil International 2017

Together with the Mister Polski competition, the Mister Brasil CNB contest is the very best in national male competitions. It has proper preliminary rounds, excellent social media exposure and its contestants are highlighted in an exemplary way.

One young man, we have followed for months in the Mister Brasil CNB competition is Leonardo Nobre, who first won the local leg of the contest competed in his hometown of Natal. After securing the Mister Rio Grande do Norte title he was set to compete at the national level. This was Leonardo first foray into the world of modelling and male contests.

Leonardo prepared meticulously, a process he shared with the world in his social media account. You could see the earnestness and dedication with which he took on representing his home state.

In this whole process his charisma was clearly evident, he was being himself, not taking on any persona, being effortless and even somewhat shy.

We predicted Leonardo as the one to beat in the national competition and ultimately he was bested by only one other participant.

Leonardo will be representing Brazil at the Mister International competition in December of this year and for us he is a definite front runner in that contest.

 

Effortless in 2017: Leonardo Menegon, Mister Mato Grosso and Mister Friendship at Mister Brasil CNB 2017

In the lead up to the Mister Brasil CNB 2017 competition, we published on our Facebook Page our list of 10 young men to watch.  These were the guys we would describe as having the charisma, being EFFORTLESS, to make it to the top of the competition. One of these was Leonardo Menegon, Mister Mato Grosso. Furthermore, we predicted Leonardo would be one of the Top 3 in the competition.

Leonardo made it to the Top 20 and was also voted Mister Friendship by his fellow contestant. Leonardo’s reaction to winning this title is a vivid illustration of why he is one of the best male contestants we have come across.

 

You could say that Leonardo is too down to earth to be in the world of modelling and contests. Notwithstanding, he fits in excellently.

 

You get the impression that he is just being himself, exploring life’s opportunities and being open to all sorts of new experiences. A regular guy living his life outside the box, without compromises.

We are disappointed that Leonardo will not be representing Brazil internationally and it would be great if he were to take another shot at the title of Mister Brasil CNB.

 

 

GOWN PORN

Another welcome deviation from the Bling Wars, is this creation by Pinoy designer Mark Bumgarner. It is smashing, as it does not contain any decoration. This allows the simplicity of the material to highlight the design, a modern interpretation of a timeless classic. As worn by newly crowned Miss World Philippines 2017, it could have been a masterclass in evening gown presentation. Sadly, she chose to wear this beautiful creation with the most inappropriate footwear, cheapening the overall look.

GOWN PORN

In this time when it seems that designers are trying to see who can put the most bling on a gown, this toned down version by Pinoy designer Mak Tumang really catches the eye and sets the one wearing it apart from the crowd.
