Kristy Scholler chose to model River Island in a beach wear category of the Top Model UK finals.

Kristy was chosen from thousands of applicants to compete for the title of Top Model UK 2018 and after several rounds she was shortlisted for the final line-up in the commercial category.

She had to attend several rehearsals and a dress fitting in London before the final competition which was held on April 6 and 7 at the London Hilton Metropole Hotel.

Kirsty had to walk three times on the catwalk, twice wearing designer outfits and once in the category beach wear which she chose herself.

The photographs here were taken by the official Top Model photographer Colin Chau.
