Perhaps the most popular winner of America’s Next Top Model, Ann Ward captured the hearts of viewers around the world with her quirky look and awkward personality which surprisingly translate to stellar high fashion pictures week after week. Who could forget her historic five consecutive first call outs during the 15th cycle?
And the high fashion queen of America’s Next Top Model is back – she’s alive and rocking these shots taken by Mexican photographer Oscar Valle for her Paragon Model Management portfolio! I am so glad that she’s finally doing some real modeling again after her long hiatus! Ann, as you may very well remember (duh) is the winner of the first high fashion cycle of America’s Next Top Model, the cycle 15 where she was given the chance to work with IMG and be featured in the cover of Beauty in Vogue! I’m dying just by looking at her new shots!!! She’s such a fierce diva!!! Truly a chameleon!
These shots are good but do you guys find these just disappointing? We’ve seen these shots during the final episode of Cycle 15! We were hoping that Franca would do another set of photo shoot -but eeekkk….
Don’t worry Ann, we’re still rooting for you. GET ‘EM!
We hate to spoil it for you guys who are expecting a fierce battle between Ann and Chelsey (there would be) but we couldn’t just help ourselves after COVERGIRL purposively/mistakenly released the CoverGirl photos of the two remaining contestants with a major-major spoiler in it! Here is it… The covergirl shot of the final 2 and your winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 15!

And then there were two! Ann Ward and Chelsey Hersley are to battled it out for the final Runway of Cycle 15 wearing Roberto Cavalli’s creations. Ann Ward sailed through the finale with a historic six first call outs in total while Chelsey who’s been consistent all through out the cycle but never had a single FCO impresses the judges with her determination and obvious knowledge of the industry. With the two girls battling it out for the title of America’s Next Top Model, who really deserved to win it? Whose portfolio is better and whose performance will prevail in the end?
This Week’s episode is the overseas week! The final six girls will fly to Venice to meet with designer and model Margherita Missoni from the house of Missoni who will also judge the girls as they strut wearing the house’s world-famous knitwear.
At the photoshoot, the girls will outshine each other as they pose in the Gondola in pair of three!
Will Ann bounce back from her bottom two appearance last week? Will Kayla or Chelsey finally get the elusive FCO? Will Jane’s personality shine through? Will Liz be more serious this time? Can Chris survive it in Venice?
The seven girls remaining will be doing their very first commercial next week wearing roller skates on the beach that will test their ability to act out on TV. Also, designer Zac Posen will guest judge and will have the girls wear his fall 2010 Collection for a showdown challenge between “them” aspiring models and professional models.
Here are the pictures from the Zac Posen Runway Challenge Owned by CWTV
Next week’s episode is all about versatility. This will test the believability factor of each girls on portraying somebody else. This time, they will be portraying eight of the most iconic fashion designers of our generation. After last week’s shoot by none other than Mr. Patrick Demarchelier; Italian Vogue Franca Sozzani’s son Francesco Carrozzini will shoot the girls paired with professional models.
Will somebody finally break Ann’s FCO streak?
