America’s Next Top Model is back and cycle 24 promises to deliver fashion, fierceness, drama, and the most diverse cast of models in ANTM history. The latest trailer for the all new season shows a bevy of beautiful models in, as returning host and queen Tyra Banks puts it, “every shape, every size, every color,” not to mention every age, since TyTy has lifted the age restrictions for the latest cycle.
They’re not just looking for the NEXT top model they’re looking for a model who is, in the words of supermodel and body activist Ashley Graham, “Next. Level. Fierce.” This cast features blondes, brunettes, dark skin women, light skin women, curve girls, athletic girls, and even a stunning bald beauty. Paper magazine’s Drew Elliott returns to the panel and to direct edgy and fashion-forward shoots. (Meanwhile screaming “More power!” at one unsuspecting model.) Celebrity stylist and self-proclaimed “image architect” Law Roach is also back, ready to whip these girls into shape, while delivering quotable lines for days.
This cycle it’s not only about runway, photo shoots, and redefining beauty standards, but of course, there will be plenty of drama mixed in, for good measure. One woman says the competition is the hardest things she’s ever had to do while another model proclaims, “This is deeply rooted psychological warfare!” So, we take it not everyone leaves the house BFF? This season is sure to be
sickening next level fierce with amazing guest stars that include former ANTM judge Nigel Barker and cycle 3 winner Eva Marcille, among others.
