VIJAYAWADA: Talent and beauty combine to give models a powerful flourish. Their passionate appeal radiates a never-ceasing flow of energy and dynamism, so characteristic of girls who set the ramps ablaze.

The city girls wearing colourful designs showed their strengths and capacities to excel in the glamour world at the annual Fete - 2005 organised by the SDM Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala on Saturday. Their talent in looking good for any beauty pageant evoked awe and wonder among the participants, who wowed endlessly all cheerful girls participating in various contests - Miss Siddhartha and Miss Fete-2005.

Winner all the way

The fashion events at the Fete reflected the rising consciousness of glamour and glitz in these parts. V. Vijaya Durga, a student of BSc microbiology second year, unravelled the city girl's sheen and class. Her resplendent dress, perfect gait and good attitude made her Miss Siddhartha. The other girls burst into noisy cheers and everyone applauded as she was declared the winner of the contest.

The college campus saw girls clad in colourful dresses trickling into the college campus since morning. Dripping with a new competitive spirit, the girls seemed to tell the world: "We have arrived." With the encouragement from the management and faculty members, students participated in many other activities to show their calibre. Marketing, entrepreneurship, business acumen and employability were the themes of the many stalls, which featured young girls at work to prove their mettle.

Some girls formed teams and sold cool drinks to all and sundry. The sight of a girl trying to turn everyone's attention to her stall offered a glimpse of her acumen. Another girl went round at the Fete selling cool drinks at the customers' point.

An atmosphere of students eager to take any challenge enveloped the surroundings of all the stalls, which also covered sweets and different kinds of eatables.

The faculty were very appreciative of the enthusiasm and brilliance showed by the girls. Degree principal J. Vasantha Kumari and junior college principal M. Usharani were seen guiding coordinators and senior faculty members in organising the event, which was aimed at bringing out the latent talent in their students.
