ANTM: Wearing China's fashion export too literally

This week, one of the greatest logical defeats was ever purported on 18 seasons of ANTM. That’s saying something for a show helmed by a woman who doled out modeling superpowers this season, but still, it happened. Want to know what this feat of mental dissonance was? An American model called her other model “too vain.” The rest of the Brit models chimed in to agree that, yes, this model liked looking at herself too much in the mirror.

Am I missing something? These are models. Of course they like staring at themselves in the mirror and/or thinking that they are the most beautiful creatures on God’s earth.

But I digress. I watch ANTM for the stupidity, after all. In other news, the final six contestants traveled to Macau this week, which is a special administrative district in China, similar to Hong Kong. Nobody seems to know much about Macau, if there is anything to know, but the girls shrieked with excitement when noted fashion photographer, Nigel Barker, informed them of their trip, and pretended to know that Macau was a city in Asia.

Once in China, ANTM proceeded to attempt to cram every Chinese stereotype into its short hour time slot.

First, they met with a Chinese aura reader, who told each of the models that she loved her mother and had a strong personality. Then, he told them what colors they should wear based on their auras. The girls were then assigned to dress themselves and put on makeup that best represented their personalities. They all returned looking terrible, but Laura still won a day at the spa.

For their photo shoot, the models had to pose in colorful silk dresses made by Hong Kong designer Barney Cheng in front of a Chinese screen wearing black-and-short-with-bangs wigs. Great, Shanghai in the 1920’s, but with black and white girls! To make matters worse, they had to pose with silkworms creepy-crawling all up and down their arms. It was a pretty terrible shoot, and none of the girls walked away with particularly great pictures, except for Laura, who took away best photo of the week.

Tyra punishes Catherine and Alicia with worst photos of the week. Alicia, who won best photo the week before, apparently made the dress look even worse than it did on a hanger. Yikes. Catherine is in the bottom two because she looks really terrible in her photos each week, but also has a strange looking nose. In the end, Queen Catherine is sent packing because she isn’t vain enough to win.

 

"ANTM": Posing with fish

After last week’s episode of insane music videos and booty tooching, this week was totally lame in comparison, and actually included something resembling a real message. Why, Tyra? I don’t want to tear up; I just want my brain to continue dissolving into the puddle of mush it’s become after eighteen seasons of this show.

Anyway, the obvious next step after making a video called “Stop, Drop N Tooch” is to assign a PSA focusing on encouraging positive body images in young girls! The models all talk about how hard it was for them being ugly young girls, blah blah, and then talk to a couple of actually-probably-teased girls who certainly feel great having thin-and-tall models tell them that beauty doesn’t matter. Learning that beauty doesn’t matter from a model is a great lesson! Give me a break. The Brits win the challenge and get a lame prize of a video message from their friends and family back home.

Next comes a strange and inexplicably-crafted photo shoot. The girls are supposed to be live sculptures at a dinner party hosted by the Brit songstress, Estelle. Like I said, the shoot was really strangely constructed—the models were in high-end dresses posing on a table while holding fish or grapes and smashing meringue into the other girls’ faces. Plus, they had to booty tooch while on the table, which, apparently, is painful. It was almost camp, but stopped short to just be strange and pretty awkward. Estelle probably thought that she was better than amateur night.

In the end, Sophie ends up winning best picture for breaking her back, letting Estelle into the shot and getting one of the other girls to pick gum or something off of her high heel. I guess she won, and I like her, but the shoot was truly awful. In the bottom two are Kyle, who is universally hated in the house and was in the bottom two last week, and Alicia, who won last week’s challenge but can’t seem to pose well on still film. In the end, they send Kyle home because she only has a single deer-in-the-headlights pose she struck in every picture. It got her someplace, though. Alicia got to stick around because she posed well in the backgrounds of the other girls’ pictures.

Looks like next week the girls are going to Beverly Hills with Kelly Catrone. She better make some mayhem.

ANTM: Death by Booty Tooch

The number one lesson that ANTM teaches us each and every season is that we cannot, should not and will not disobey authority. Namely, Tyra Banks’ authority. If we do disobey that authority it means that a.) our heads have already grown far too large or b.) we have some sort of disability that does not let us recognize shining geniuses, aka Tyra Banks. Regardless of our reasons, if you, model, disobey Tyra and her infinite wisdom, you will—without question—be eliminated.

 

I can spot these eliminations miles away.

 

This week, the models learned that they would be forming girl groups and making music videos. Model favorite AzMarie is peeved because she would never form a girl group. She implies that girl groups are cheesy, and she’s way too good for the cheese because she writes some of “her own stuff.” This I’m-too-good-for-a-girl-group statement coming from a woman currently appearing on a reality television show that has also featured a judge who wore a bow tie that increased in size each week until it would have been fit for Bozo. Dignity is not on ANTM found.

 

Tyra came to talk the contestants about the proper way to “booty tooch.” If you don’t understand what that means—and I really hope, for your own sanity, that you don’t—it entails sticking out your derriere in a way that looks like you are in a fashion shoot, not taking a dump or trying to pick up a dude. That’s the way Tyra explained it, at least.

 

One piece of advice: when Tyra teaches you, be willing to listen to everything that she says with an unearthly amount of enthusiasm. Lay down at her feet. But this week, when Tyra told the contestants that she would teach them to booty tooch with training-bra-esque butt pads, AzMarie refused to participate. After she refused, we all knew she was a goner.

 

AzMarie pouts through the video session, which requires the girls to dance and mince through some rap-like “singing.” No surprise here: the U.K. girls are better because we’ve already sent AzMarie to the gulliotine. The editors sort of half-heartedly throw in Kyle’s poor performance on the music video set, but all long-time viewers know AzMarie’s fate is sealed.

 

In the end, there’s no twist, shocker, or lesson from Tyra about listening to everything that Tyra says. The one shock for me this week? I can’t get the stupid booty tooch songs out of my head.

 

 

 

America's Next Top Model: "The Models Get Branded"

Will another model go home?

This week, the girl’s are still reeling from British model Louise’s sudden departure from the competition. The Brits are crying, but the American girls seem to be more and more at each other’s throats. Particularly angry is 18-year-old Seattleite, Eboni, who doesn’t want fit into the little girl mold that Tyra assigned her.

 

They don’t get to stew in their anger juices for long because instead they get to sell things! Martin Lindstrom, a Brand Futurist (yet another title that can’t really exist), tells the girls that they will be selling products to determine how likeable they are. Remember this guy? He was on last season to call Sheena stupid and Angelea ghetto? Yes, there will be more of that now.

 

The girls are assigned to sell really inane things, like tissues that glow in the dark and a television remote that also serves a dumbbell. They have to create their own commercials, which in Modelland translates to blabbering at the camera until Martin tells them to stop. After they’re finished, the commercials are shown to a really-harsh focus group of consumers, who rip almost every model down.

 

Kyle, who does well with the panel despite her terrible performance, is berated by the other models because she can sell things with her girl-next-door looks. She storms out the room, and says that she, too, wants to go home and quit the competition. Miss J calms her down temporarily, but she’s not over it yet. Thankfully for Kyle, Annaliese wins the challenge, for being likeable in selling the remote/dumbbell.

 

Next, the girls have to pose for Nigel Barker (who is definitely not in high demand as a fashion photographer, after umpteen seasons on ANTM) next to pimped-out American cars and in swanky British hats and dresses.

 

In the panel, AzMarie wins best photo again for her butch aesthetic stuffed into a long dress and high heels. Runner-up is Laura for a pose that bitch judge Kelly Cutrone called “a drunk Mae West.” She looks really good, and actually gets on the ground to pose between the cars.

 

The bottom two are Brookylnite Candance and “fiercely real” Seymone. Candance can’t do anything but pout her enormous lips in photographs, and looked really, kind of nauseous in her photo, but tried out for the series eight times. Seymone looked like somebody’s wife in a parade this week, according to the judges.

 

Who goes? Candance, even though she tried out for the show EIGHT times. That seems like something Tyra should have and would have exploited, but she didn’t. What’s in store instead?

 

Miami Beach International Fashion Week

Yearly people flock to Miami to catch a glimpse of the beautiful scenery, and the beautiful people to go along with it. This coming Wednesday creates another reason for people to come out to South Beach. The Miami Beach International Fashion Week kicks off on Wednesday bringing with it an array of fashions. Designers from around the world will come to the shores of Miami to put their fashions on display for everyone to see. 

Miami is known for its blatant disregard for clothing. Visitors and natives walk up and down South Beach in little to no clothing. Therefore, it will be no surprise if more swimwear lines make it down the runway than actual clothes. With summer coming up it may not be such a bad idea to start looking for nice summer pieces. For students on Spring Break this serves as a great opportunity to see what else Miami has to offer aside from the beautiful beaches and people. For other people looking for a short vacation this may be the perfect opportunity.

Miami Beach International Fashion Week happens to be the largest International, and Hispanic fashion event in the United States. The event kicks off with a swimwear showcase, followed by a show by some of Miami's local designers. Native designers like, Viviana G. and Kayce Armstrong will both be in attendance. Miami Beach International Fashion Week lasts all the way through March 24. Tickets to the event cost anywhere from $50 to $500. More information about the event can be found at miamifashionweek.com.

 

 

 

America's Next Top Model: models in charge

I can’t believe that America’s Next Top Model takes itself seriously anymore, but perhaps Tyra Banks has a lower self-awareness than most people. She wrote a book called Modelland about models with superpowers and went to Harvard business school, but still has the humility to wear a plastic superhero cape. What a classy lady!

 

This week, Tyra visits the house to assign the models their superpowers, based on her bestselling (seriously) book. She assigns Laura the title “Zaglicious” because her propensity for living outside of the box, and Catherine something like “Era-licious” because she can pose like she’s from a bunch of different centuries. She gives the other girls other inane titles—by pasting them onto their shirts—and they’re supposed to model with these superpowers in mind. As if models weren’t already confused enough.

 

Next comes a pretty interesting challenge with new and terrifying super-bitch judge, Kelly Cutrone. The contestants have to design their own fashion shoot, and delegating tasks like planning the hair and makeup, casting male models, buying props for the shoot, and designing the thematic elements. Azmarie is chosen as the leader of the American team, while Annaliese is picked to head of the British group.

 

The American team sets up a London-punk shoot with tough makeup and hair. Azmarie proves to be an effective leader, and Kelly Cutrone tells her that she makes everyone feel comfortable. The British team chooses to replicate a simple, 1960’s-themed mod shoot, but Annaliese and the rest of the girls are scattered during the challenge, much to Cutrone’s chagrin.

 

During the shoot, Louise and Kelly have an altercation, with Kelly telling Louise that she shouldn’t be running around the studio. Louise is really pissed off, but gets a stunning photograph in channeling her angry energy. But she’s still mad when she goes into the critique, and the judges tell her that she has one of the worst attitudes they’ve ever seen. She can’t take it, and she storms off of the set, telling some random producer in the back lot that she needs to go home. It’s pretty crazy—the judges seemed beyond shock that a model could be so insubordinate. The hazards of working with pretty girls.

 

In the end, Azmarie takes home best picture for her matador-esque androgynous photo. Tyra chooses four girls as the bottom four. Really, though, they’ve just psyched us out because Louise isn’t coming back, and we knew it. Tyra says she only has one photo in her hands, and the girls look nervous until they see that it’s a photo that has compiled all of their shots into one. Phew.  

America's Next Top Model:British Invasion

"Shake-over makeovers."

This week, the tension between the Brits and the Americans continued, as did Tyra’s reign of terror. This cycle, she assigned “shake-overs”—rather than makeovers—which included some girls getting unorthodox hair colors and others getting haphazard shaves.

The episode starts out with Tyra’s infamous “shake-overs.” She’s been inspired by the pastel colors of the European runways this season, so she’s assigned British contestant Sophie bubblegum pink hair. To American Laura, she gives platinum blonde locks with red and blue streaks. Brit Catherine gets magenta hair, but in effect, it looks like a deep, deep red.

Other interesting hair assignments go to American Azmarie, who gets the letters “ANTM” shaved into her already-buzzed hair. Diva-Brit Louise throws a fit when she gets her long blonde locks cut into a bob and then colored with brownish highlights. She looks really good, but she pouts that she looks like Justin Bieber.

Next comes another really strange challenge featuring Kris Jenner, aka Mama Kardashian, and her two youngest daughters. The models are told that they are to pose as the youngest members of the Kardashian brood—they are to pose like toddlers. At the same time, they are supposed to sell the garments and look like high-fashion models. Don’t worry, I don’t get it, either.

The shoot itself is unbelievably awkward. Some of the models have to pose sitting on Jenner’s lap, while others are fed baby food. With a bunch of creepy baby dolls and the real Kardashian girls dressed up like Wednesday Addams, the whole thing looks like some sort of prelude to fetish porn.

At the top of the pack is Laura—the model with the red, white and blue hair. She poses like a broken doll—a pose we all know that Tyra loves—bent over the side of her crib, reaching for a fallen bottle. The runner-up for top photo goes to Brit Ashley, who posed well with a lollipop.

The bottom two is between two American models, both of whom looked totally boring in the midst of this whacked-out photo shoot. The mean new judge, Kelly Cutrone, tells Native American Mariah that her boring face would have cost her a million dollars if she’d recommended Mariah as a model. Seymone, who won last week, just sat and stared at the camera, looking pretty.

Even though she’s the first Native American ever on this show, Mariah is still sent home second. You’d have thought that Tyra would be all about that diversity.
