Chiara’s image for Moscow is being taken care of by a team of professionals with whom she has worked over the past months and years. Chiara will be representing Malta in Moscow with the ballad, ‘What if we’. The ballad-Queen will be competing with herself as she is determined to improve her previous two results at the same contest – second in 2005 and third in 1998.
Leading Maltese fashion designers, Charles and Ron from C&R will be taking care of her outfits. Chiara’s team also includes award winning fashion make up artist, Diane Nikolic, OPI nail technician Angele Stafrace and hairstylists Alexander’s (Gzira) and Warren Tabone.
