Lights, camera, action! The 23rd of January 2017 was the date that every fashionista in Romania saved in her calendar, because it was the day when the second season of “Bravo, ai stil!” (“My Style Rocks”) aired on TV. Four demanding judges, a gorgeous TV host, 14 super stylish contestants, jaw-dropping outfits and lots of surprises – this new season promises to be legendary.
A career in television, 100.000 lei and the title of “Most stylish woman in Romania”. Now, who wouldn’t be tempted by such an opportunity? But keep in mind that this journey is not for the faint-hearted, therefore only 14 ambitious glam women have had the courage and determination to go all in, and have succeeded in becoming part of the biggest and most beloved fashion competition of all. Among them, two shiny big blue eyes and an angelic smile stole our hearts immediately after the first episode. Her name is Angela Carp, and she’s there to steal the show.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”
Who said that an engineer can’t be as stylish as a model off-duty? Angie graduated from the Faculty of Biotechnical Systems Engineering at Politehnica University of Bucharest, but her passion for art and fashion was too big to suppress, therefore she also decided to enroll in Istituto di Moda Burgo, Pattern Making in Milan. The 25 years old golden-haired angel is a mixture of creativity and intelligence, of strength and innocence. But under that seemingly shy mask, lies a volcano of energy and joie de vivre, which has determined everybody, from the judges to her colleagues and the audience, to irredeemably adore her.
Her fine taste in fashion has proven to be indisputable right after the first episode of the show, when she managed to obtain two positive votes, which brought her a golden star – which has been followed by many others in most of the episodes. She really is a contestant to be feared, so make sure to keep your eyes on her!
Angela’s style, which she proudly and masterfully presents in the contest, focuses on minimalism, she likes to build her outfits around a statement piece and with those clean lines and natural makeup looks, she has already built a strong and well defined image of herself in the eyes of the judges.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great” is her motto, and “Bravo, ai stil!” is her way of proving to herself and everybody else that you can do anything if you’ve got enough nerve. She dreams of becoming an actress, she loves traveling alone, learning new things everyday and constantly developing herself. She is determined to reach the stars.
“I love making patterns, I love being different, I want to become famous!”, said Angela Carp on the first episode of the show. If you believe in her dream and if you think that she’s got what it takes to become the most stylish woman in Romania, show her your support by voting with the code 12 at 1206.
