a good model can advance fashion by ten years.

Sometimes you have to be bold.

Recently, I attended the America's Next Top Model: Live event. There were vendors from various jewellery, clothing, makeup, and hair companies, as well as a fashion show featuring some of the contestants from America's Next Top Model: All Stars. As a long-time fan of the show, I was instantly intrigued by the idea of a day devoted to beauty, as well as seeing some of my favourite models!


After receiving enough hair product samples to last a lifetime, purchasing a clamp-free curling iron, and taking in my very first fashion show, the Top Model contestants were ready to do some press and meet some fans.

It being the first day of the event, however, things were horribly organized. The fashion show was 45 minutes late, and meeting the contestants became a free for all. There was a barricade separating the contestants from the fans, and the models were encouraging fans to duck underneath the barricade and take pictures with them.

My only goal was to meet my all-time favourite Top Model contestant, Alexandria. I knew if I didn't duck underneath that barricade, I would regret it. So, I nervously did just that. Even though it was scary, I am very glad I did it.

Here are some of my photos from the event!








Despite the poor organization of the event, the America's Next Top Model: Live event was a fun experience. Have you ever gone to something like this?
