- What particular qualities, personality & style should Miss Colour of Couture posess?
There are so many answers and people have different thoughts on these but I believe that Miss Colour of Couture should posses the ability and wisdom to go thru life’s situations as a strong woman of great understanding and knowledge. She should be friendly, outgoing, passionate, charming, educated, have a sense of humor, able to hold her own, a teacher, learner, listener, compassionate and a friend. Her style compliments who she is as a woman and changes daily. She can be bold one day and classy or casual the next. Style should always compliment who we are and not over power it.

I LOVE IT ! Fashion in SL has rocketed to levels of utmost importance as in RL. It’s trend has expanded and never ceases to amaze me .

- What sort of impression would you like people to have of you if win the title?
