These days you can see all the dental work, every pore and every flicker of emotion. It is like a Hollywood screen test. The make-up artists and hair stylists are hard at work and doing a great job. After all, it is show business. To sell tickets you got to put on a show.
I am really impressed especially with Leonova these past 2 years. In the close-ups she has progressed from somewhat boyish teenager with stage fright on the Grand Prix in 2008, to flawless, striking, means business, maximum womanly in her close-ups.
Honorable mention to Vanetina M. once a bit of a plane Jane but now commanding her share of wow!
