Here they are!

The CW has released introduction videos for the 14 aspiring models who will compete for the title of America's Next Top Model when Tyra and her crew of fashion tyrants return for cycle 15 on Wednesday, September 8.

Like any ANTM cycle, this group is full of serious competitors and lots of wacky characters. But this time around, each girl needs to prove just how "high-fashion" her look is, thanks to this cycle's brand new, career-launching prize: A contract with IMG Models, one of the top international modeling management companies in the world, and a fashion spread in Vogue Italia (plus the standard $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics).

Cycle 15 also includes even more drama thanks to the fact that two of the aspiring models are sisters. Terra and Chris are bringing their own sibling rivalry to America's Next Top Model.

Check out the models and hear what they've got to offer Tyra, in their own words.
