America's Next Top Model College Edition: Cycle 19, Episode 12 :: The Girl Who Becomes America's Next Top Model
This week on America's Next Top Model College Edition (Cycle 19, Episode 12), the top 3 girls walk in a ghostly fashion show that determines who will be made the winner of ANTM. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “The Girl Who Becomes America's Next Top Model,” which aired on November 16, 2012, to discover what you missed.
They Call Her Cutthroat For a Reason
During this final week of ANTM, the top 3 girls posed in two photo shoots and walked in a haunted fashion show. Their first photo shoot was for a real client, so Kelly "Cutthroat" Cutrone warned them going in not to mess this up. Then Kelly herself proceeded to get into a heated debate with photographer Jez Smith after making a suggestion on set of Laura's shoot that rubbed Jez the wrong way. As a result, Laura got less frames than the other girls. Luckily she still produced an awesome photo in the end.
The next shoot was for Nylon Magazine, which is where the winner of ANTM will be featured. Leila's unique look was by far the most fitting for the magazine's style, but it's the judges and the fan votes that determine the winner this season. During this shoot, the girls got a surprise that brought them all to tears: each of their families showed up to support them and watch their final fashion show.
This runway was unlike any other. It took place at a haunted estate where all the girls were dressed in $30,000+ gowns, reminiscent of ghosts. Cycle 18 winner Sophie returned to open the show. The runway was a challenge with the wide stairs and gowns that made it impossible for the models to see their feet. Each of the three remaining girls achieved different results. Kiara nailed it, Laura looked stiff, and Leila wiped out twice - yikes! Talk about humiliating.
And the Winner Is...
On past cycles of America's Next Top Model, we've seen Tyra forgive the girl who wiped out on the runway and even award her the title. But I guess falling down has become more of a faux pas these days. Leila, the obvious choice for Nylon Magazine, came in last. So in the end it came down to Kiara, with her killer walk and on-again off-again photos, or Laura with her mediocre walk and striking stills. Ultimately, the judges scores combined with the fans votes awarded the title to...Laura! By a country mile!
