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.
