antmjudges

With the return of America’s Next Top Model, we are revisiting our favorite moments, including all the winning photo shoots, from the first 20 cycles of the series. While we ranked the cycles according to Tyra Banks’ hair, we didn’t take into account of all the judges that have served on the show’s panel. Since they’ve helped Tyra decide who would become America’s next great fashion hope, it’s important to examine all 13 of them.

Every Cycle of America’s Next Top Model Ranked According to Tyra’s Hair

View Photo Gallery

After 20 cycles of tears, hair, and Tyra mail, America’s Next Top Model is showing no signs of slowing down. The show is returning with cycle 21 — the second competition featuring guys and girls premieres on Monday, Aug. 18 — and promises to deliver everything we love about the show. Of course the main draw is Tyra Banks herself.

A fierce supermodel in her own right, she has always made sure that she is the star of the series. And in order to be on top, she has to always model from “H to T.” But she hasn’t always gotten the “H” part right. Tyra can certainly smize but her hair hasn’t always given her reason to. With that in mind, we decided to rank every cycle of the series according to the model’s signature hairstyles.

Every America’s Next Top Model Winner’s Photo Spread

View Photo Gallery

After 20 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, it’s hard to believe the show is still chugging along. But given the appetite fans have for seeing Tyra Banks teach girls week after week how to model instead of pose, the series shows no signs of slowing down. While there have been some down cycles, most of them have been ups thanks to the host’s wild antics and the personalities that fill each round of competition — some were winners, while most were losers. But it was those winners we want to enjoy the success awarded by the show.

Of course, by now, we all know the fabulous prizes include a modeling contract, a contract with a cosmetics line and a photo shoot with photographer Gil Bensimon in the selected magazine of that cycle. Over the years, winners have won fashion spreads in Elle, Jane, Marie Claire, Nylon, Seventeen, and Vogue Italia. While each publication holds its own esteem, it’s ultimately the models that make those prized spreads a success. McKey for Seventeen? Just eh. Jaslene for Seventeen (again)? Oh no. But then there’s Laura and Jourdan for Nylon. So hipster cool. But that’s just our opinion.

Check out shots from all 20 shoots in the gallery above and decide who made the most of their big prize.
