Sandra Shine Wins 'Babe of the Year' Honor

BUDAPEST Hungarian star Sandra Shine won's "Babe of the Year" award during one of Thomas' renowned "model-get-togethers" last week at the Bali Café.

Every year Thomas has a tradition of thanking the models for working with the team and 2011 was no different.

"I was trying to tone it down this year but the models just seem to love it," Thomas said. "We had over 20 girls here tonight and they all had a blast. There were more photographers than at the Royal Wedding! Not to mention two live streams running on various web sites. The real reason we have this party is to thank all the girls and guys for their hard work with us and to have a look for some new talent."

In addition to Shine, the beauties in attendance included Sophie Moone, Blue Angel, Eve Angel and regulars like Jo, Lisa and Vera.

Stunning Welsh newcomer Lexi Lowe grabbed the Newcomer of the Year statuette and went on to coin the term NOTY2011. Jo was awarded the "Most Enterprising Model" in recognition of her hard work with her new site which is a VivThomas/Jo joint venture.

Vera took home the lifetime achievement award. She started with Viv Thomas back in 1999 and has worked not only as a model but as a make-up artist as well.

"She keeps the crew in stitches on location," Thomas said. "Thanks to all the models for another super successful year."
