Such a shameful, guilty pleasure, but yes I am still watching ANTM, and Cycle 19 (seriously!) just wrapped up tonight. This season’s brand new judging panel of Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone, and Rob Evans crowned the winner of America’s Next Top Model: College Edition…Laura James! The 21-year old model was named the winner over runners-up Kiara Belen and Leila Goldkuhl, both of whom I preferred.
In addition to bragging rights, Laura also won a revamped line-up of prizes. She takes home with her a modeling contract with LA Models & NY Model Management, the opportunity to be the face of the America’s Next Top Model perfume product “Dream Come True”, a spread in Nylon magazine, campaigns with Nine West and Smashbox Cosmetics, and a $100,000 cash prize.
We at The Backseat Stylers were cheering for Leila all season and were sad to see her end up in 3rd place. Check out Laura’s complete ANTM portfolio below – did she deserve the title of America’s Next Top Model?
