Photo finish for model Kellie
Kellie Forde, 21, from Glanmire was the latest contestant eliminated from Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model.
Kellie is "delighted to have lasted eight whole weeks in the show. I loved my picture this week so I feel like I went out on a high note as it was my favourite picture so far," she told the Cork Independent.
Kellie beamed that she loved every minute of her experience in BINTM, saying:
"It's hard to define one favourite moment because there were so many. Paris and Dubai were great and meeting Lisa was a huge highlight".
When asked which judge was her favourite, Kellie replied, "I liked them all for different reasons but I probably respected Whitney the most because she is a huge style icon of mine and she was a big fan of my style too".
Although Kellie was friends with all the girls in the house she says she became closest to Lisa and is rooting for "Lisa all the way!" to win. Since the show wrapped Kellie has remained close to all the girls. "I speak to Lisa nearly every day", she added.
Now that Kellie is out of the running she is looking for work again and she has had some agency offers already.
Kellie also hopes to build a good portfolio without the pressure of having a film crew around her at all times. "I felt like I was holding back a bit on the show so I don't think those pictures are good enough".
Kellie is not all about the hair and make up side of modeling, saying "I love the creative aspect of it too and I love styling. I'd love to have my own collection in Cork Fashion Week this year."
