The list of contenders in Emerging Magazine's Top 100 International Models Competition is expanding. Those models receiving high vote counts online will move on to compete in Malibu, California during the Models For Charity Celebrity Luxury Ball.


Those moving on to the finals will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with celebrities attending the extravagant fashion event, while modeling vendor fashions on the runway.


A celebrity panel will judge the Top 100 International Models Competition finalist as models showcase designer gowns, swimsuits, casual wear and under clothing. Winners will be announced simultaneously on Facebook and Twitter. The event will stream live here on Emerging Magazine.

Kelliana Virkutis

Actress, Artist, Model Public Relations, Writer

Pompano Beach, Florida

My name is Kelly. I love art, and I love art with purpose and depth. I haven't had any formal training; most of my work is from class notes from High School and University.

I prefer working in pen because it allows me to work with my mistakes, rather than correct them... Often I find that my mistakes make for more dynamic imagery.

I also model. Like my artwork, I strive to model with purpose and depth. I find it vitally important to portray emotion, character and thought through imagery, not simply something pretty to look at.
