Of her picture taken by photographer Fadil Berisha, reporter Riza Ornos wrote: “In this glamour shot, Arida transformed from her exotic sultry look into a high class fashion model. From her frizzy mane to her pout and down to her skin stone, Ara Arida is a force to be reckoned with as she can transform from different looks as long as she wishes.  She’s now major favorite for the crown and if she continues to wow the judges, she could be the next to wear the Nexus crown.”
