“I never dreamed I would win!,” said Lorelei Maggs-Myer, Look of the Year 2015 winner. “Winning the LUXE Paris Look of the Year was definitely an unexpected surprise for me. I never dreamed I would win when I entered the contest, with so many other very talented models competing.”
Maggs-Myer also confided that being the LUXE Paris Look of the Year has been far more than she ever imagined. “It took me to events and shows I would not have gotten to participate in otherwise. Most importantly, I have met new people and gained some very dear friends in Mika and Parisian. It’s been an amazing adventure and I will be sad when my time is up but happy for the next talented winner knowing the kind of experience she will have.”
