Australia’s Next Top Model – And Now There Are Six.
It was the style challenge tonight and it did not take long for Harper’s Bazaar Fashion Director, Claudia Navonne, to rasp in her voice that must have smoked a 1000 cigarettes that Cassie Van Den Dungen was a bogan.
To be fair to Cassie she has little money so probably shops at Supre and payless shoes. Personally I thought Claudia should have had a go at Lola who looked very big (for a model) in a micro mini dress and she was standing pigeon toed.
The girls were then divided in to three groups and the challenge was to style the other girl in a current trend. One was floral english, one was urban traveller, and the other is power dressing rock chick style. But the catch was they only had five minutes to do it in so the result was horrendous.
Lola and Cassie at the end of the challenge looked like they had grabbed clothes from their local salvation army store rather than the designer racks of Harpers Bazaar.
Next it was off to a Alex Perry casting as he had a couple of spots he had left in his show which was going to be on the Queen Mary 2. Does Franky do anything but bitch about everyone. Franky was snippy about Clare’s walk, which I interpreted as jealously which would have intensified when Clare was picked to do the show. Adele was picked as was Tahnee.
I loved the way Cassie thought that Clare’s personality which she thinks is “bland and mannerish” may stop her winning the competition. Then Cassie with a straight face to camera thinks her “bright and young” personality has what it takes.
It was interesting to see all the mother’s, especially Cassie’s. And of course there were tears flowing etc. Host Sarah Murdoch again showed she was all class with her mingling effortlessly with the mothers at the high tea they put on for them.
The Queen Mary looked fabulous, and one of the perks for Alex Perry was to get free labor from the modelettes to finish setting up the catwalk.
Lola thought putting numbers on a chair demeaning. What does she do in her day job. She is only 20 years-old, I thought you only did drudge work at that age anyway.
Clare did an amazing job and Tahnee looked so curvaceous in her little black dress. My prediction is Tahnee, Clare and Adele will end up being the top three.
The photographic shoot was beachside wearing Chanel. Cassi choked and Johnathan Pease said “she was making it look more Jeans West.”
Richard Freeman the photographer had a go about the size of Lola’s thighs. Clare who has had a dream run through the competition also faltered.
I thought it was interesting that Johnathan Pease thought Adele and Tahnee were now the front runners in the competition, but at the judges table the photographer said that most of Tahnee’s shots were catalogue. Your shots being called catalogue appears to be about the biggest insult in the modelling world.
Adele’s name was called first, and it was no surprise that Laura was sent home, as she has been awful for weeks. Now they are down to five it must be getting close to the overseas location shoot. And since it will be sponsored by Virgin it will either be Los Angeles or Hong Kong. My pick is LA.
