Thanks to Tyra Banks and The CW, the world gets another cycle – cycle sixteen – of America’s Next Top Model. With the network’s release of the first cast photo, my raise-eyebrow-trigger went off. While only the first names of the wannabe models have been released, the beautiful blonde on the bottom left is definitely Kasia Pileciwz. This wouldn’t be an eyebrow-worthy find if Kasia wasn’t already a plus-size model (signed with Wilhemina Models) and Top Model contestants were not prohibited from agency representation during their participation. Wilhemina says she’s “on hiatus”. Are we to assume they will have her back if she doesn’t win the famed modelling contract with IMG and a spread in Italian Vogue? Is this fair to the other contestants?
Lorenzo Bringheli didn’t have to do much to turn out some incredile shots of the flawless SlumdogFreida Pinto for this month’s issue of Italian Vogue. View Post
