Very often, the reality show Next Top Model presents girls that are not selected according to the fashion models criteria but only because they have a strong personality, says the designer Christoforos Kotentos for the OK magazine. Mr. Kotentos is in the jury that will select the next Greek Top Model. The last year’s title was awarded to the beautiful Greek-Swiss Serayna.

It is very likely the show to distinguish a girl that will really become a top model, but usually wanna be fashion models go to the casting only because they want to be on television, believes the famous designer. He warns that fashion models are always with suitcase in hand and ready to travel, but there are opportunities in Greece too because there are many fashion magazines to work for.

In the interview for the OK magazine Kotentos bombarded that Greek women are quite behind in their dressing style and their perceptions of fashion. Yes, they are well dressed, the fashion designer admits, but their style is more oriental and this is a matter of upbringing and way of thinking. 'Women make a lot of efforts to deck themselves. It is all exaggerated. Of course, it is necessary to take care of themselves but not to exaggerate. There is no need to wear provocative clothes and low necks and mini skirts. It is not necessary to take off your clothes to be sexy," says Kotentos.
At the same time, the most famous Greek model of all time having a worldwide career and working for Karl Lagerfeld - Vicky Kagia, who is the head of the Next Top Model jury, married a few weeks ago and says she is ready to have child. This year the show creators are concerned that it is broadcasted when the over-watched new series of the Greek The Island is running. So, the producers have to figure out how to take their piece of the pie – the last week one of the participants in the show tore Vicky Kagia’s hair because they quarreled. The girl grabbed her hair and they say the cries of Vicky filled the neighbourhood, but no one has recognized whether this act was spontaneous or it was a trick to attract more curious viewers.
