Julia Schneider: Winner of the Elite Model Look 28th World Final

Fifteen year old Julia Schneider from Gävle, Sweden is this year’s winner of the prestigious international Elite Model Look competition. The crowning of Julia took place December 6 in Shanghai after castings in some 800 different cities in 70 different countries on five continents.

“We’re so happy and excited. She has the perfect face for a model,” Kristen Lane of Elite Model Stockholm said in a phone conversation.

The spectacular win means that Julia could well follow in the footsteps of other former winners of the same competition, such as Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Gisele Bundchen, Fei Fei Sun or Constance Jablonski.

To win first place in the world final also means a three-year contract with the Elite Group, and a guaranteed salary of 150,000 euros.

Julia was just a typical Gävle teen before the competition, a girl with a pet rabbit who played ice hockey for years until she broke her arm. She loves her two horses. But Julia, who is a statuesque 1m79 tall (5 ft, 9 inches), may find things changing a bit when she becomes a professional model.

“I’m very happy but also a little bit in shock,” Julia said one day after the the win: “I was the girl who was always in the stable with horses. I’m still going to do that but my life has been completely changed. Now I’m going to go home for Christmas – it’s really nice in Sweden. As for the future, we’ll see what happens!”
