Was Tyra Banks an editorial or commercial model when she was working?

foxybrown - 16 Mar 2011 18:53:05 (#7 of 965)

She did runway in her early days AFAIK. Does Sports illustrated and Victoria secrets count as editorial or commercial?

ottoline07 - 16 Mar 2011 19:10:24 (#8 of 965)

Yes definitely commercial.

There was one episode where she sat around scarfing pizza with the girls at a kind of slumber party. She shared that she was catwalk until she was 18 or thereabouts and developed BOOTY, when her managers told her to lose a few pounds. Then her mom stepped in and said "Screw that, let's get pizza". So they RE-SMIZED her career into commercial modelling.

I think she is really beautiful. I never think any of the girls get anywhere near her really.

foxybrown - 16 Mar 2011 19:39:49 (#11 of 965)

She's going to Harvard business school

I don't know, there have been some right stunners over the years, although they don't always win. Some right mingers, too, though, like Lluvy, Xiomara, Jaeda, or Janet. Or the one from New Orleans who looked like a hammerhead shark.

I might take ANTM a leeeeeetle too seriously.

foxybrown - 16 Mar 2011 19:42:22 (#13 of 965)

Who was Janet?

doctorsyntax - 16 Mar 2011 19:47:37 (#14 of 965)

Oooh, about series 6 or thereabouts. She worked in a waxing salon and simulated giving Ty-ty a full Brazilian on the desk at her audition.

(I should point out I don't set out to remember this stuff, I have a stupidly retentive memory for this kind of crap).

Edit: Here she is:

I take it back, she's not as fug as I recall.

foxybrown - 16 Mar 2011 20:06:37 (#15 of 965)

I still don't remember her! she's rather plain like that Brenda from not long ago. More catalogue than catwalk

doctorsyntax - 16 Mar 2011 20:10:18 (#16 of 965)

Wendy Wiltz, that's the hammerhead shark girl:

foxybrown - 16 Mar 2011 20:25:41 (#17 of 965)

I remembered this one she had some beak on her

Ann shouldn't be anywhere near this final. Her walk is ridiculous, she has to be one of the worst finalists of all time

KittyKarateRedux - 22 Mar 2011 08:20:06 (#19 of 965)

Her walk has improved - she's gone from 'Day of the Dead' to '28 Days Later' zoombie.

foxybrown - 22 Mar 2011 10:16:20 (#20 of 965)

HahaHa Kitty, I don't remember her walk early on tbh but this was so bad for the final.

Krista was a bit blue steel on the runway

You mean Chelsey right? I didnt notice she had a tat tbh. Both finalists bored me. Krista was last years winner she was stomping down the runway last night too.

ottoline07 - 22 Mar 2011 22:20:23 (#23 of 965)

Big ears? Adams' apple? Spots on chin? Yes. Where can I sign on to become America's Next Top Model?

doctorsyntax - 23 Mar 2011 19:20:12 (#24 of 965)

Big ears? Adams' apple? Spots on chin?

C'mon, Isis wasn't that bad ;-)

(actually, while I applauded the sentiment behind Isis's presence on the show, I did think she was one of the fuglier contestants over the years. Not a patch on Andrej Pejic).

Surely having a boy with no chest, arse or hips modelling women's clothes is the ultimate insult?
