We all saw the wackadoo, orange-wigged, red lipsticked, purple-eye-shadowed, bathtub photo shoot pictures Ann did for her Vogue Italia editorial spread, but we've just caught glimpses of her Beauty In Vogue May supplement, and, dare we say it, she actually looks like a model.Granted, the shots are all in gray scale and softly lit, but Ann doesn't look awkward, bizarrely proportioned, in pain, or otherwise facially severe in a single picture. Her eyebrows are luxuriously thick and gorgeous (we've... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/djdtD2Olalo/antm-cycle-15-winner-ann-wards-beauty-spread-in-italian-vogue-released
Behold, the very first preview for the next season of America's Next Top Model !

Who would have thought that the squeaky, blonde mop-topped girl from Rockford, who tiptoed into the casting room way back at the beginning of Cycle 15 would have transformed into a fierce, outspoken redhead by the end of ANTM ? Kayla definitely became one of our favorites to win ANTM Cycle 15 before she was cut from the finale, and she's gained hometown prestige as well. Her hometown newspaper, the Rockford Register Star , named her among their top local news stories of 2010. Despite the fact that she didn't win, they thankfully reminded us to watch out for Kayla at the Grammys on February 13th. Remember that Grammy Girl challenge? Congrats, Kayla! Source Here
2010 has been a year of action, suspense, romance, intrigue, arrest, and murder. And that’s just on Dancing with the Stars! We kid!

We've seen some unique people grace the halls of Tyra's School of High Fashion Modeling over the 15 cycles of America's Next Top Model, but we haven't ever seen a winner quite like Ann Ward. The 6'2'' Dallas native was an instant fan favorite on a cycle that was all about being "editorial." From the minute Miss Jay emphasized just how tiny her waist was to when she spilled just how tough it was growing up as the tall, awkward girl, we knew who to root for this season. It came down to photos vs. personality (Ann vs. Chelsey), and thankfully, photos won because it is a modeling competition. We had the pleasure of chatting with Ann about keeping her big win a secret for four whole months and how she was even taller than her third grade teacher. To Read More Click Here.
It was a cycle to remember. The stakes were higher than ever before, boasting an Italian Vogue spread, a cover of Beauty in Vogue, and a contract with IMG Models. One model of the bunch had been reading Vogue from inside the womb, and that bleached blonde, bright-eyed 23-year-old was Chelsey Hersley. We thought she would go all Tanya Harding on her competition when it came down to just her and Ann Ward (The Model With No Waist), but instead, she stomped the Cavalli runway too fast and Ann took home the Top Model title with little shock value. Chelsey, sadly, did not have much of a chance up against fan (and judge) favorite, Ann. We chatted with Chelsey about how she managed her disappointment after losing and why she doesn't regret saying Ann didn't deserve to win. To Read More Click Here.
What's more satisfying than watching Tyra Banks awkwardly embrace your rural American family? Winning "America's Next Top Model," perhaps. It's a tough call for Ann, the very skinny, 19-year-old Texan who cried tears of joy and nerves all the way through the Cycle 15 finale before ultimately taking home this season's bonus-sized trophy... a spread in Vogue Italia. Easily the competition's most high-fashion prize to date, both Ann and runner-up Chelsey wanted it badly. And for a while, it seemed like either could bring it home. Ann, who's wowed the judges all season with her photo shoots, didn't nail the CoverGirl challenge or look as confident as Chelsey out there on the runway. Chelsey seemed confident this would all work to her advantage, and she was suitably shocked when she didn't win. But that's usually the case with the fashion-obsessed contestant who loses out to the natural talent. So what do you think -- will you be paying the grossly-inflated cost for Ann's appearance in the imported fashion mag? Source Here
Imagine watching the finale of "America's Next Top Model" Cycle 15 with the two finalists in the same room? Zap2it did just that at The CW's finale viewing party. There were a lot of giggles from the two contestants during the screening and then some tears when we watched the winner get announced. Afterward, we spoke to runner-up, Chelsey Hersley, about what it was like to watch Ann Ward take the prize again. "It was kind of hard reliving the moment again," Chelsey, 22, told us. "I was surprisingly more calm than I thought I would be watching it. It was a lot harder the first time." The entire finale seemed like a close race. So when Ann was named the winner, Chelsey looked pretty blindsided. Since the finale's taping, she says she has been able to work through her disappointment. To Read More Click Here.
