“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] Keep reading »

Derek J Is The New Miss J

If you haven’t been watching the new Oxygen reality show “Hair Battle Spectacular,” I suggest you correct that right away. In case you need any further enticing other than a contestant named Minista (she is actually an ordained minister), I offer up the show’s star judge, Derek J, the Queen of the fantasy hair world.

Michaele Salahi And Shandi Sullivan Could Have Been Separated At Birth

This weekend, while catching up on “The Real Housewives of DC,” I couldn’t shake the feeling that I’d seen Michaele Salahi before, and not just from the White House party-crashing incident. The big, curly blond hair, the beaked nose, the thin, willowy frame. And then it hit me. She looks almost identical to Shandi Sullivan, from season two of “America’s Next Top Model.” If someone told me that Michaele had Shandi as a teenager and gave her up for adoption, I would totally believe them.

Get Ready For “America’s Next Top Circus Freak”


It’s “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 15 trailer time … and I’m scared. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’m thinking they should re-name the show “America’s Next Top Circus Freak.” Keep reading »

“America’s Next Top Model” Finale: The Battle Of The Eyebrows

America’s Next Top Model” has been on for 14 cycles now. At this point, we all know the show’s tropes by heart: At least one girl will always be late after the go-see challenge. The ugly duckling always becomes a swan. The girl dubbed “commercial” doesn’t have a chance. Someone will always have an on-camera meltdown during the final CoverGirl commercial. At this point, I’ve watched the show long enough to have determined that the second girl shown in a solo interview in each episode is INVARIABLY the one eliminated. Don’t believe me? Watch. It is just a fact. And yet, the magic of “ANTM” is that, even though we can easily predict what is going to happen, we still watch and are even surprised. Keep reading »

America’s Next Top Vampire

Anyone catch “America’s Next Top Model,” the vampire edition? While I’m shocked they never thought to do this before (like back when vampires were a huge craze and stuff?), I am super glad they waited until Andre Leon Talley was on the show and could call out specific moments of “dreckitude” involved in shooting these looks.
