Melissa Wins Australia's Next Top Model
Melissa, the 16 year old from Victoria, and the youngest model in the series has been voted Australia's Next Top Model.
Melissa competed against the judges' finalists Shanali and Duckie, and despite being amongst the shortest in the competition, was voted Australia's Next Top Model by the public. The budding beauty was officially announced as the winner in front of thousands of fans tonight at The Star in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
As the series eight winner, she will take home $20,000 in cash, a Nissan Dualis, a cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, and a contract with IMG Models – home to fashion powerhouses Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss.
