As you may or may not be aware, Amy Willerton is more than just a model to us, she’s part of our UK Model Folios family. We are so proud of how she has conducted herself in the jungle thus far, despite being a victim of some clear mistreatment by other camp Members.

We met Amy through sponsoring the Miss London beauty pageant (regional heat for Miss England and Miss World). We spotted from the offset she had that certain something; the ‘X-Factor’ if you will, and we were right.

Travelling to Thailand with Amy after she won a photoshoot with us and Alan Strutt to shoot there was a real highlight. It was on those stunning beaches we shot her debut calendar and spent time really getting to know the real Amy.

Here’s some of our highlights! #TeamAmy x


There is beauty in a woman whose confidence comes from experiences; a woman who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and move on.

Behind-the-Scenes At Miss England 2011, Birmingham NEC


The Miss England 2011 finals are almost here, just one day away. Today sixty stunning finalists gathered at the Birmingham NEC to rehearse for what is the biggest event in the pageant world and UK Model Folios were there to capture it all exclusively to share with you.

This year UK Model Folios have been offered the opportunity to offer their services independently at the Miss England finals capturing those ‘what really goes on behind-the-scenes?’ shots and professional portraits of the ladies in That infamous evening gown. We advance our thanks to our amazing photographers Roy Strutt, Costas Constantinou and Antony Michael for their photography skills and support of UK Model Folios, and of course this event.

Today we wanted to share with you a quick glimpse of what happened at the rehearsals for the Eco Round- the opportunity for finalists to showcase their bespoke creations from recyclable materials. The rehearsals give them an opportunity to learn choreography and strut their stuff on the catwalk to a panel of highly credible judges who tomorrow evening will have the extremely difficult task of choosing the lady who will represent England for the year ahead and at Miss World 2011, which even more exciting for us Brits will be held in London.

Check out just a few of our shots below snapped by the fabulous photographer Roy Strutt and come back tomorrow for the result and first-hand shots of what happened at Miss England 2011!

It’s Not Too Late- Miss South West London Shows Why…

Since UK Model Folios discovered blonde bombshell Margarita Nazarenko and encouraged her to enter the Miss London 2011 contest, it was no real surprise to see her phenomenal journey since…


After Margarita, sponsored by promotions agency, Front UK came second in the Miss London final to supermodel-esque Rissikat Bade, she was handpicked by Miss England to participate in their semi-finals and run for the title once more. Winning a place there she will now represent Miss South West London in the Miss England grand final on July 19th 2011.

To maximise Margarita’s chances of winning, she is determined for the Miss England judges and the world to see her in her best light, and so after detox and some hardcore fitness training Margarita is looking in the best shape of her life, and feels amazing. The only thing left for her now is to update her portfolio so she has something to represent her properly on her profile on the Miss England website and during promotions for the competition. The last time Margarita updated her portfolio was over a year ago, so in her own words it needs ‘an overhaul’, and who better to help but her very good friend UK Model Folios?

Shoot producer and director Fay, co-styled Margarita’s shoot to create something commercial, high-end and sassy using inspiration from campaigns for Agent Provocateur and Marks and Spencers. Combining pieces from highstreet favourite Topshop with a classic blazer from Dolce & Gabanna, alongside stunning hair and make-up from celebrity stylist Krystle Gohel, Margarita looked every inch the born star she is.

Fay believed it was important for Margarita’s shoot to reflect her energetic and sensual side, whilst maintaining her sophistication and natural beauty, and she sure chose thought right as an overwhelmed Margarita chose a whopping 109 shots for her portfolio! Noteably she’ll have to filter this down for fear of boring the client but it proves how far UK Model Folios go to ensure your true beauty is reflected in the picture and moreover, how pleasing it is when you love what you see.

Margarita left our London studio yesterday ecstatic with the outcome of her day and judging by the shots below (specifically chosen for the Miss England competition) we can see why- best of luck Miss South West London, we know you are going to go very far!
