The photo shoot for this week's episode of America's Next Top Model
made me slightly suspicious. After last week's shoot, it seemed patently obvious that the lower half of Clark's face was simply not going to ever photograph like a model. Then this week, the shoot conveniently covers it. Clark has seemed to have some good drama potential, so I can't help but raise an eyebrow at the timing which keeps her in the competition another week.
Well, regardless of why the shoot was structured how it was, we have to make some picks, so here are this week's picks for Best and Worst photos on America's Next Top Model.
I do have to give it to Clark as her photo does look like it could be easily put into an ad right now. Lauren Brie’s body movement is great and her eyes have good intensity. It’s not as good of a photo as it could be (her nose is at an awkward point in the water, that bit of nostril showing makes her look a little less gorgeous than she is) and, by no fault of her own, the makeup is too pasty-white and off-balance which makes her appear asymmetrical. But she has strong presence in front of the camera and it carries the photo. Samantha also managed great body language; I think her youthful physical exuberance is good, even if it got her into trouble on the runway.
Nearly everyone else falls into this category. I liked Analeigh’s experimentation with her body language, but her eyes didn’t have the intensity and this particular pose makes her look foreshortened. Elina, McKey and Sheena are ho-hum. Joslyn’s just doesn’t look like anything in particular. Marjorie’s photo is interesting, but more Gollum than I care for.
Kudos to Isis for being brave enough to attempt the competition. I hope she finds a way to become the person she wants to be and can continue to model. But it was time for her to head home from this cycle of America’s Next Top Model
, and this sleepy photo shows why.
