Miss London City 2013 was another night to remember at London’s number one hotspot, Cafe de Paris thanks to our fabulous sponsors UK Model Folios .
The fourteen finalists strutted their perfectly rehearsed choreography on the catwalk to the sounds of Justin Timberlake’s, ‘Damn Girl’ before our carefully selected panel of judges selected their Top Five (in no particular order)- Alicia Caley, Melissa Reeves, Nena France, Jasmine Chahal and Imogen Donnell.
Half-Thai stunner, Nena France, 22 from Kensington and sponsored by Inanch London hair salon then went on to win the Miss London City title by unanimous vote after she wowed the judges in a floor length black cocktail gown with an elegant split to show off those enviable pins.
When Miss England 2008 Laura Coleman, the presenter for the evening, pronounced Nena Miss London City 2013, the beauty shed many a tear and said, “I cannot believe I have won! I’m ecstatic to be an ambassador of the best City in the World and as someone of mixed heritage, I believe I really reflect what modern London is about!”
When asked how she felt about her new Miss London, the official licensee, Mrs Fay Hill said, “Nena is a fantastic example of what makes a great Miss London. Last year she competed in the final against Miss London 2012 Amy Willerton but didn’t place in the final five. I had a lot of confidence in her as a competitor, and so, as I do with all my finalists, I gave her a professional critique- her win tonight says it all and I am so, so proud of our new Miss London City.”
A further congratulations spreads to Jasmine Chahal who deservedly won a place in the Miss England semi finals, placing second in the competition. She also won the titles for Miss London City Popularity and Miss London Charity after individually raising an amazing sum of £825.00 for the official Miss World charity, Beauty With A Purpose.
Furthermore, beauty queen extraordinaire, Melissa Reeves proved once again she has what it takes to impress a judging panel placing third in the final. She will join Jasmine at the Miss England semi-finals so good luck to both of our ladies (not that they will need it)!
Miss London City 2013 Nena France will go on to represent London in the finals of Miss England this June in Torquay, Devon. “I’m so excited to get preparing for this magical experience and of course working so closely with the Miss London organiser, Fay Hill.” Amongst her other fantastic prizes, Nena has also won a photoshoot with number one coveted photographer, Alan Strutt courtesy of our prestigious sponsor, UK Model Folios- Nena said, “I am so excited to shoot with Alan. He is one of my favourite photographers and I know the pictures will be amazing!”
