Matos Look of the Year is an event to celebrate the 13th Anniversary of Matos. This festive event was held on Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 by inviting the winner of Indonesian Idol 2018 Maria Simorangkir as the guest star.

Matos Look of the Year 2018 is to find the Brand Ambassadors to introduce and promote Matos. In the previous years, the event was called Miss Matos. This event changed its name because the participants were male and female, and because of the high enthusiasm of the young generation in Malang to be the Brand Ambassador of Matos. The audition began on July 1st, 2018 which was attended by 80 participants of which the 20 people were selected as finalists (10 male and 10 female). One of them was a student from the French Language and Literature Study Program, Faculty of Cultural Studies (FCS) Universitas Brawijaya (UB) named Savira Trisna Fitriani, who is usually called as Vira.

Vira told that to join this competition, she prepared several things. “The most important preparation for me was diet because weight is the main concern. The ideal weight is 45-46 kilos, meanwhile I was 49 kilos. I also practiced public speaking because it is very important for this kind of pageantry event,” said Vira.

In addition to diet preparation and learning public speaking, Vira also prepared the gown that would be worn for the Grand Final themed Exotic of Espana. Because it carried Spanish theme, at the time of quarantine, they were also taught Salsa dance which was presented in the opening of Matos Look of the Year 2018.

“The quarantine lasted only a day but the activities were plenty and solid, including Salsa dance, interview, photo-shoot, beauty class, personality and ethics class and the last one is visiting some tenants at Matos such as Hypermart, Matahari, Bulan Purnama and Java Dancer,” said Vira.

Due to her excellent preparation and hard work, Vira was able to win the 2nd Runner Up of Matos Look of the Year 2018. Vira received a reward of 2 million rupiahs from OVO application, English course in TBI (The British Institute), trophy, sash, gold necklace, as well as a parcel of cosmetics and parcels from Matos.
