Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Allison Harvard, the runner up of Cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model
. Allison was an unlikely contestant and fan favorite for America's Next Top Mode
l with her unique fashion-forward look and quirky personality. Allison endeared herself to fans by being unafraid to show what a "square" she was and for her geeky uncontrolled outbursts, like telling Tyra she was "so pretty" or that she was jealous of her nose bleeds. After struggling with Allison's 'one look,' the judges came to appreciate Allison's edgy editorial features and she won three of the final four photo challenges.
Allison and I chatted about her surreal time on America's Next Top Model
, her dream modeling job, her unique aesthetic, and getting rid of her big blonde mane.
