A Video Tribute: André Leon Talley’s Best Moments On “Top Model”

After four cycles, 45 judging panels, 54 different contestants, and many of his beautiful, signature capes, André Leon Talley bids farewell to theAmerica’s Next Top Model judging panel. Wednesday night’s cycle 17 finale, was his final episode (next season, Kelly Cutrone will take his seat). His addition to the panel last year for cycle 14 was heralded as a new, high-fashion direction for the show. …

Along with serious fashion credentials, Talley brought sass, made-up words, and a fascinating dynamic with Tyra to each episode. He also, of course, wore great hats, chunky jewelry, and disdainful expressions where needed; he once even waved a cane faux-threateningly, which was wonderful. See a video compilation of ALT’s best moments on the show in this video…

Tyra Cops To Playing A Role On “ANTM”

“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character … So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character … I don’t do that, like, in real life; I’m passive aggressive. I’m anti-confrontational; I’m even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational. It’s a character, but people think it’s real. I’m so not sexy. I know how to turn it on for a picture, but I’m not sexy in real life.”

Tyra Banks on her “ANTM” alter ego. I wonder if she calls her alter ego Tookie. I wonder if she looks in her mirror each morning and whispers, “I am Tookie” to her reflection.  I want to believe this so badly — that Tyra is really humble and meek and not the egomaniac she comes off as. Really I do.  [Clutch Mag]

“Top Model” ["Pot Ledom"] All-Stars Go Viral

Watch Video

Last night’s episode of “Top Model” (or should I say “Pot Ledom”?) was “absolutely epic” to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to “go viral.” Best catch: they had to work the hook “Pot Ledom” (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of course, Tyra  made an appearance in every video along with internet sensation Keenan Cahill (I somehow have no idea who he is). There were many deliciously cringe-worthy moments — like watching Alexandria Everett try to dance. Rapper The Game, who directed the videos, referred to her as the Tin Man. Okay, getting to the nugget of gold in the episode — because there is always a nugget in every “ANTM” episode. The Game, oddly enough, became obsessed with Allison Harvard, who wrote  an emotional and haunting song called “Underwater” about her deceased father. I’ll admit, I have been singing it all morning and annoying my co-workers. I just can’t stop! In judging panel, The Game called Allison (who obviously won best video) “the most weirdly beautiful person he’s ever met” and admitted to Tyra that he was attracted to her. It was just … wow. All these cycles and “Pot Ledom” never loses its appeal.

What did you think of Allison’s video? The other girls? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Just What You Always Wanted: A “Top Model” Fragrance

If you thought the all-star season of “America’s Next Top Model” was indication that the model competition show had jumped the shark, think again. Now Tyra Banks is releasing an ANTM fragrance called Dreams Come True … Uh, that’s not exactly what happens to the winning model on ANTM, but we’ll let Tyra have her delusions. You know, there’s a whole generation of ANTM viewers still willing to give Tyra their ratings and money, and they only have to wait until January when the fragrance will be released. We’re not exactly sure what Dreams Come True will smell like, but Racked has some ideas. And let us know if the idea of an ANTM fragrance entices you. [Racked]
