9:00pm Monday, January 3 on LIVING
Season 15 of smash hit fashion fight series America’s Next Top Model brings a new twist to the popular formula – plastering the winning girl’s image all over the magazine that represents the very pinnacle of modelling success, Italian Vogue. The girl will also get a contract with top agency IMG, home to Gisele Bundchen and other supermodels at the top of their game. Which 14 girls will win the chance to compete for these extraordinary honours when the judges make their first cut this week exclusively on LIVING?
Host and producer Tyra Banks chooses a diverse group of 32 model wannabes to start out on the road to superstardom this week, including a pair of bubbly sisters, a beauty queen, country belles and ‘a rich bitch’. Whichever of these big personalities is chosen, she will need to have the modelling chops to flourish in the ultra intense world of edgy high fashion. In preparation the girls learn not only how to strut and pose, but also to handle jealous competitors straight away in Ms Banks’ crash course in catty comments and backstabbing behaviour.
This week, it all gets started on LIVING when the girls work fabulous frocks from designer Cynthia Rowley on the runway. After being grouped into types, the model hopefuls must prove they can stand out in a garden party photoshoot to win the judges approval. Which girls will prove they have what it takes to grace the pages of the world’s most exclusive high fashion magazine when the mother of all TV modelling competitions kicks off this week?
