I had the special privilege of getting to know each of these awesome ladies, and I’ve watched them transform from scared students to confident models. Only a select few can say they survived the intensive training and graduated from UCWS in one piece. I do tend to joke, but it truly takes a lot of perseverance to graduate UCWS. I congratulate this graduating class for making it...and making it so stylishly too!

Aislin, I just love to call her first ;), Bella, Chelsee, icatoots, clysa, Uneeque, Nikkie, S3xyt3mptation,Anjali, and Vicky all have worked so hard the past few weeks, and I’m so proud of them all! It is wonderful women like such as these that make my job truly worth it!

A special congratulations to Vicky for her winning Class Valedictorian...not an easy feat with so many worthy candidates, but she was, from what I heard, the mama bear of the group. I want her to be my mama too!

Aislin Jinx took the 1000 L prize for best blog. Take a look at her hard work and dedication to the fine art of blogging at Congratulations Jinx!

I look forward to meeting the next group of students this upcoming month! To UCWS recent graduates congratulations again...and cherish it, love it, and never forget this feeling! :)


I was raised Catholic and in honor of Classic with Style's Queen of Mardi Gras 2011, I was so tempted to indulge..or overindulge..but because I was judging, I had to keep a clear head ;)

This was a difficult pageant to judge because all of the contestants looked spectacular! Queen of Mardi Gras 2010 Aisha Ormega took to the runway to wave a loving goodbye to the audience before she handed over the crown to the next lucky lady. Who will it be...?

Congratulations to Ms. PinkTikiCat Luv! This was her second consecutive win, and it was well deserved as she stunned the audience with her elegant beauty and creative poses and outfits.

Ms. PinkTikiCat Luv
Well done to all the fabulous contestants! It will be one long year before the next winner is who could be YOU! :)
