SHANGHAI — If the name Elite Model Look was not attached to a modeling competition held in this metropolis on Tuesday night, the competition could have been mistaken as one that was more Chinese than international.
Sure, there were plenty of foreigners. Sixty-three models (two were Chinese), from countries ranging from Brazil to Belarus, competed in the 28th world final of the annual Elite Model Look competition, which is organized by the global modeling agency Elite Model Management.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
