Finalists fly in for a week of fun-filled flaunting


IF you were at Twin Towns Resort pool yesterday you could be forgiven for thinking you had died and gone to heaven ? if you were a male.

Poolside were the 24 finalists for Australia's Best Model.

The girls strutted their stuff in swimwear, evening wear and future fashion with a special appearance by reigning Best Model Australia, Jana Peterson, who also holds the title of Bartercard Miss Indy.

Yesterday was the beginning of the Best Model Australia National Finalists Week.

The finalists will spend the week modelling as well as being judged, interviewed and photographed.

The culmination of the week's rigours comes on Sunday when 2006 Best Model Australia will be announced.

The lucky winner will take home $10,000 and prizes including a trip to represent Australia in the world final of Best Model of World in Turkey.
