superstud*18 “Wow I really like It!! I thought it was really well put together and I am sad it might be the last issue Great job!”
“AMAZING ISSUE Kebin! I'm honoured on so many levels. To put Roxy on the cover to give her an editorial and an interview. Not to mention but honour her as one of the iconic dolls in the eLouai world means so much to me. I loved how her editorial turned out with all the effects I also love what you did with the interview although you forgot the middle finger part.”

From the editorâ€™s desk. I know it took a while and I didnâ€™t get all the content I wanted, but welcome to issue #8 of eL Magazine! As the lights of summer begin the fade and the winter starts to emerge, we hope to provide you with inspirational fashions for this fall and winter season. Speaking of inspiring, look who we have on our cover this issue! None other than top model Zoe Elgin, who, after being dormant for a while, has made her comeback in the industry. She dazzled in front of the camera with a gorgeous backdrop of Paris in some chic pastels that we hope will make their way into your fashion wardrobe. On top of that, we have some sexy appearances from the likes of Mischoux Johnson and Baja Rivera, as well as the stunning winner of ENTM 12, Aaliope Riverstone, and ENTM 13 favorite Rhea Pitera to top things off. Enjoy!
Who is your favorite
eLouaiatmodel the moment and why?
“I must say I love Bridget [Windflakes], she is stunning never failed to amaze me, and she can do no wrong”
reberr “definitely Wakuani's Katarina Voldermort. she's a rising star that outshines everyone else wherever she goes. she has a really unique look that works really well on almost every single photoshoot she does and rocks the runways. also to me, she's the most memorable eLouai model.”
keau “There are so many amazing dolls right now... it's hard to say, but I think Rika [Ayame] is my favorite. She was an underdog at first, but now she is booking show after show. That's a model.”

he’s the supermodel of the future. To some, she’s a supermodel of now. Currently in The Industry 3, Hailee Smalls caught my eye when she produced one of the most iconic images in Candybar Doll history during the first week of the competition. With this single shot, she caused both controversy and awe. However, I think the bottom line is this; regardless of whether or not you think Hailee Smalls crossed the line between Candybar Doll and realism, this is a spectacular shot. It’s hard for a doll to emote a strong emotion in a photograph, and yet Hailee does it spectacularly here. What makes a new model stand out from the crowd is, of course, one that pushes the limits while respecting the traditional. I think with every shot of Hailee I’ve seen, she does exactly that.

current vibrant red hair, I guess it would be save to say that Zoe Elgin has always left an â€œedgyâ€? impression on me. Yet watching her perform in front of the scenic views of Paris, France, she nailed a romantic, soft look that only emphasizes her versatility and her skills as a model. But besides that, it was just great to see her perform in front of the camera. It seemed so long since weâ€™ve seen Zoe, who, after being pinned as the next big thing in fashion and putting herself high on the Top 20 models, seemed to vanish from the fashion scene. The opportunity to help her in her comeback was definitely a decision I do not regret, because Zoe Elgin proves that she still has it. Not only does she have the body and the look, but she truly has the elegance and the grace in front of the camera. Her stunning face on our cover will only be one of the first in many career highs!
