Will Isis’ Sex Change Help Her Chances On “Top Model: All-Stars”?

We’re mega excited for the season premiere of “America’s Next Top Model: All Stars,” set to go live next week. And we’re especially stoked to see how one of our favorite past contestants, transgender model Isis King, is going to fair. Especially because, after her first appearance on the show, Tyra Banks generously paid for Isis to have gender reassignment surgery. In 2009, she appeared on Tyra’s show to talk about the surgery — and received a marriage proposal. “It’s almost like I was supposed to have it,” said Isis. “Although it was swelling and bruising and everything, automatically I felt more comfortable. I was ready to walk around the house in my little shorts. I just felt more confident.” Her boyfriend of three years, Desmond, also proposed on the show, noting that, “When we were just friends, I had a dream I was getting married. As the bride came down the aisle, it was Isis … She’s strong, she’s beautiful, she’s my soul mate.” Keep reading »

“ANTM” Challenges Girls To Conveyor Belt Runways Of Death


Sometimes we think “America’s Next Top Model” should be renamed “America’s Next Top Indiana Jones In High Heels.” Some of these challenges are absolutely insane! And dangerous! In the latest episode, Tyra sends the girls down a runway with super speedy conveyor belts. Mix that with high heels and floor-length gowns and you’re asking for it. [The Cut]

After the jump, some of the most dangerous model moments in “ANTM” history. Keep reading »

“ANTM” Cycle 15 Winner Gets Vogue Italia Photoshoot

The winner of next season’s “America’s Next Top Model” can look forward to the standard prizes — a contract with a major modeling agency, up close and personal views of Miss Jay’s legs — but also an Italian Vogue cover. “ANTM” followers will know that the standard editorial prize offering is a shoot with Seventeen and the switch to Vogue is a major upgrade. Don’t get us wrong, Seventeen is a decent magazine, but it’s no Vogue Italia. Where Seventeen features models trying to make it, Vogue is more or less for the ones who’ve already arrived. Given that “ANTM” has always claimed to be a career-maker but generally had limited success in actually launching a successful career, this seems like a step towards making good on the promise of being a real supermodel machine.

Miss J’s New Book Tells You How To Be Supermodel-Like

Anyone who’s seen Miss J Alexander in an episode of “America’s Next Top Model” won’t soon forget the man-diva’s swagger and unusual style. Whether pantsless in stilettos or rocking a hair bow bigger than his head, the boy’s got a look. And now you can read about his childhood, his son, and his tips on how to live with the poise of a supermodel, even if you’re not six feet tall and 12 pounds, in his new book, Follow the Model. [Modelinia]

If you ask us, anyone who attached bottle caps to the bottoms of his Converse on his first job interview (to give them that special stiletto heel sound) is worth at least a quick read. Plus, the writing is actually legit in a light, fun way (first chapter here), the cover image makes us literally giggle aloud, and he’s got a pompadour to rival Simcha’s. So yeah, grab a copy to peruse and then use as a rather cute coffee table adornment. Keep reading »
