“Top Model”‘s Classy Makeover Is Missing One Thing

“America’s Next Top Model” is supposedly getting a “high-class makeover” for its 15th “cycle,” which premieres September 8th. Last season, the long-running series debuted a new judge, Vogue‘s posh-accented and imposing Andre Leon Talley, and he, well, seemed a touch out of place amongst the otherwise campy production. So this season, instead of winning a spread in Seventeen (the show’s former print partner), the winner will get a spread in Vogue Italia, which is a big high-fashion step up. Additionally, the show will have more well-respected guest judges joining Talley and Tyra on the panel, like photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Francesco Carrozzini, and designers Zac Posen and Roberto Cavelli. All of this does add up to a pretty classy makeover for the show, which has, let’s face it, been running out of steam. Still, there’s one more tweak that needs to be made in order for “Top Model” to be taken seriously — FIRE JAY MANUEL. The silver-haired Oompa Loompa’s utterly asinine “creative direction” has got to go. [Deadline]
