Vintage Lindsay Lohan fans, rejoice! A sequel to the oh-so-fabulous Disney film “Life Size” is in the works, and I am thrilled. The made-for-TV-movie, which came out in 2000, stars Lindsay as troubled pre-teen Casey and Tyra Banks as Eve, a doll that comes to life. It’s every little girl’s dream (or nightmare)! The two ladies go on an adventure of self-discovery and lots of girl talk as Eve faces an existential crisis while trying to accept that she is, in fact, a doll and not a human. Keep reading »
Someone get Tyra Banks on the phone! There’s a hot “new” trend in posing ridiculously for photos called “squinching,” but I’m pretty sure Tyra’s go-to “Top Model” tip — SMIZE! — has just been stolen and rebranded under a different name. According to the Daily Mail, which shouts out Tyra’s smize in its intro, photographer Peter Hurley “claims the squinch is the act of squinting your eyes in such a way as to ooze confidence and self-assuredness.” Squinching is more subtle than squinting; when you squint, your eyes appear too closed, but, explains the Daily Mail, ”when you ‘squinch,’ however, you’re lifting and tightening the lower eyelid and only allowing the top eyelid to come down slightly.” Keep reading »
Did you forget about Tyra Banks for five seconds? Because she’s got a plan to make herself talked about once more. The “America’s Next Top Model” host and smize-ing overlord created a series of photos for photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth’s exhibition, Tyra Banks Presents: 15, in which Tyra “transforms” herself into several iconic models — Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford to name a few.
Tyra being Tyra, couldn’t wait to share the photos with the world. “I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW w/a photo tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw,” she tweeted. Keep reading »
Hard to believe, but “America’s Next Top Model” is now in its 20th cycle. Yup, Tyra’s been lording it over wanna-be models since forever. This season’s a little bit different: She’ll have both male and female contestants competing against one another. Will there be catfights and sexual tension? Probs. Sigh.
To gear up for this latest season, premiering August 2, we’ve taken a look at the competition and given you an imagined backstory for each model hopeful. Take a look, and tell us who, in Tyra’s immortal words, you “wanna be on top.”
It took you long enough, Tyra Banks: for the past 19 cycles, “America’s Next Top Model” has been all about teaching the ladies how to booty tooch. Last season we were lucky if we got a little bit of Rob Evans with his shirt off. But on August 2, Cycle 20 debuts with all whole new look: male models are competing. (And yes, Rob’s back as a judge — don’t worry!) I wonder if they’re going to make the guy with the hipster beard shave his face. It would only be fair. They make all the girls change something drastic. [YouTube]
