Who better to ask for her top tips to help out our Miss Pinup New Zealand contestants, than last year’s runner-up – Miss Charlotte Cake?

Charlotte is no doubt known to many of you as a pinup, a blogger, a baker, a model, a motivational speaker, a television starlet (she appeared in, and won, Come Dine With Me!) – her talent seems boundless!  When I asked Charlotte to share her knowledge and experience, she happily obliged, which I loved – thank you Charlotte.  So here goes:

Tip # 1 – Keep your performance and outfits true to you, what you represent and what you’re all about.

Charlotte’s talent was funny, kooky and it showcased her cake-baking persona perfectly.

Tip # 2 – Think outside the square and do something that’s uniquely you – if you’re singing, how are you going to really make sure that you’re different to everyone else who may have sung before you? What is going to remain in the minds of the audience long after you’ve left the stage?

Tip # 3 – Pay close attention to details – small touches like a perfectly placed sparkly brooch, handbag, earrings or those seamed stockings really add the final glitz to your outfits. Think of it like a cake … you wouldn’t just send a plain un-decorated cake off to a wedding or special event would you?   Nooo – you would decorate the s**t out of it before you send it off in all its glory!

Talk about attention to detail – Charlotte NAILED IT in this stunning dress!

Bonus tip: Believe in yourself, be ballsy and take risks.

Again, thank you so much Miss Charlotte Cake for your tips.  I know you’ll be there, at the Miss Pinup NZ 2016 competition, willing the contestants on …
