Arielle Moses is the Face of T&T 2013
Arielle Moses emerged as the winner of the inaugural Face of T&T Competition at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad on Sunday.
Competing as a Top Ten finalist, the stunning 22-year-old Moses from Carenage wowed the judges and audience with her command of the stage and her grace and poise on camera during her interviews.
Chelsea Mohamed of Trincity was awarded second place, and Belmont resident Mauricia De Peza came in third at the Grand Finale showcase.
Among her winnings, Moses will now become the Face for all local initiatives for Revlon Cosmetics Trinidad and Tobago. She will also receive prizes from the Hyatt Regency Trinidad and Hyatt Spa Esencia, whose intraceutical package is valued at $12,000. In addition, the Psychology graduate has been selected to be a Carnival Brand Ambassador 2014 with the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago, alongside another Top Ten finalist, Brettney Romeo.
Other prizes for the top winner include a round trip to Grenada courtesy Caribbean Airlines, a weekend stay at Flamboyant Hotel, a portfolio courtesy Gary Jordan Photography. A pair of Tiffany & Co designer sunglasses was also awarded to each of the Top Three winners, courtesy Optometrists Today. The Fan Favourite, sponsored by bmobile and voted by supporters online, was won by Chelsea Mohamed.
Moses, a teacher and counsellor from the LIFE Centre, remains humbled by the opportunity to be the first Face of T&T, and is excited by this new achievement which she hopes will inspire her students, who live with autism.
“I have grown tremendously and learnt so much from the other Top Ten finalists, who all beam beauty in their own way.” She credits her soaring confidence to staying grounded at all times, which is made easier with the sturdy support system from her family and friends, many of whom were in the audience to offer their unwavering support last evening.
