Ann Ward is America s next top model cycle 15 winner… no surprise!
Right from the first episode, Tyra and her crew wittled down their pool of tall, thin beauties to just the right group of 14 “high fashion” models.
Ann definitely fits into that “high fashion” look.
If you remember the first episode when we first met Ann, the talk was all about the size of her waist being the size of our wrists? And Tyra’s reaction to seeing her? “For some reason I really like this girl!”
Ann credited her 6’2″ figure to a fast metabolism. But I’m sure that her peers thought she didn’t look normal growing up… a good lesson to teach our daugthers that “not normal” is also beautiful.
The judges liked Ann right from the beginning because of her unique high fashion look.
But she proved herself time and time again. She had five straight top photos from the photo shoots. Althought her runway performance wasn’t the best, she still came out on top.
Tyra Banks told Ann Ward after winning America’s Next Top Model: “All those comments about being too tall or just being not normal … they’re going to look back and think, Man, I should have been nice to that girl.’ ”
The awkward-looking girl comes out on top! Maybe a good lesson for our daughters?
