Fantasia Veneziana Magazine Awards Gala Ceremony & Contest
A fantastic time at the Fantasia Veneziana event that took place at ZAVO Mediterranean Restaurant in NYC!
Many stunning models attended and were a part of the contest. Hearts pounding with excitement everyone put on their best.
First came the ceremony to everyone who helped make Fantasia Veneziana magazines come to life.
Then came the first award for that night! The Veneziana Magazine Cover of the year!
With cheers from the whole room, the award was announced to Ivy Dominique and the whole team who worked greatly to produce her stunning cover!
Finally, the contest for King and Queen of Fantasia Veneziana began!
Men first, and the judges were struggling to make a choice with such contestants! They answered some questions regarding what they would do if they were to win this new found title of Fantasia Veneziana King. Finally, the votes were in, and the winner Gio Delavicci gathered with the hosts to take a photo! Congratulations!
The Women were next, and if the judges were struggling with the male models, now the real trouble came. Five beautiful models took their turns displaying fashion walks before taking the stage. Ms. Dominique walked with style and grace when demonstrating her abilities to the judges, then answered the very same question asked of the male models.
Everyone waited anxiously while the judges spoke to each other in hushed tones. It felt like ages from anticipation! Finally the votes came in. Handed down to the wonderful host Steve Silver, the Queen was announced! Zhanna Victoria stepped down to claim her crown and place as Fantasia Venezianas Queen!
The whole night was stunning and the guests were all dressed just as beautifully as the contestants. Everyone was deserving of a prize!
