As we recently noted, it’s been reported that cycle 9 America’s Next Top Model winner Saleisha Stowers‘ agent said that she needed to be more “seasoned” prior to appearing at New York’s Fashion Week.
But that doesn’t mean that America’s Next Top Model didn’t represent at Fashion Week. At least three alum from recent seasons of America’s Next Top Model appeared on the runways – including one of Saleisha’s cycle 9 competitors.
That’s right, that’s the bad girl of cycle 9, Bianca Golden, was, apparently, seasoned enough to hit that runway. So was cycle 8 winner Jaslene Gonzalez, and “Dani” Danielle Evans, who won cycle 6.
And it was a reality crossover for the America’s Next Top Model alum, as the show they were appearing in was the Project Runway fashion show for the five remaining designers on that show.
Those three are not the only America’s Next Top Model stars keeping busy lately. There’s another film in the works for Yaya Dacosta from cycle 3. We recently reported that she was appearing in the John Sayles film Honeydripper. In the film, she worked with actor Charles S. Dutton.
The two must have enjoyed working together, as he’s also starring with and directing Yaya in a Lifetime TV movie called Racing for Time. The film is based on a true story of guard at a female juvenile offender who starts a track club for the young women. Yaya is playing a “gifted young runner.” Elizabeth Pena is also starring in the film. The tv movie will be appearing on Lifetime on Saturday, February 16 at 8pm, and playing again the next two days at the same time. Initial reports say the film is “grittier and more stylish than the average Lifetime movie [but] nevertheless provides the mandatory melodrama and feel-good ending.”
