CariDee English stunned millions of viewers when she became a finalist on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 7, and captivated many hearts as the first blonde winner of the competitive reality show. As a model blooming with potential, she became CoverGirl of the week in at least four occasions and even had the opportunity to land a substantial role in an episode of CW’s One Tree Hill. Her ability to strike a pose finally earned her a contract from CoverGirl Cosmetics, a representation from Elite Models, and a spread in Seventeen Magazine.

Immediately after earning the Cycle 7 crown, English caught the attention of several media outlets, becoming the subject of news and having numerous interviews. She also guest starred on The Tyra Banks Show. Apart from being the cover girl on Seventeen Magazine’s February 2007 issue, English had acquired her own series exclusively featured on CW’s official website, which showcases her life as a CoverGirl. After her stint on America’s Next Top Model, she landed several modeling gigs such as a photo shoot promoting CoverGirl’s cosmetics, a shoot with fashion photographer Angelika Grundler, a beauty shoot in Nylon Magazine, and a photo shoot with Top Model photographer, Nigel Barker, joining past Top Model contestants like Naima Mora (Cycle 4 winner) and Danielle Evans (Cycle 6 winner), for Cover Magazine.

At present, English continues to represent Elite Models and remains to be a promoter of CoverGirl cosmetics and a campaigner of its ad, “Every woman is a queen.” She has also signed as a spokesperson for the nonprofit organization, The National Psoriasis Foundation, in which she will participate in various events over the next year, including The National Psoriasis Foundation National Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
