Drag queens are just so much more fun than a bunch of women dressed as dudes, as last night's episode of "America's Next Top Model" proved. After all, men dressing as women get to play with lots of flamboyant makeup and wigs, but skinny girls doing the opposite have little to work with beyond painted-on facial hair and an inability to fill out a suit. I mean, this photo of Tyra is cool-looking, but she's obviously a woman, not a sharp-dressed man. (Who did you think made the best dude?)
Between that and the Sears clothing challenge, I thought last night's show left a lot to be desired in terms of competition. But it did provide plenty of priceless moments with Natasha, the resident Russian mail-order bride/Angelina Jolie lookalike. For more details and to see a gallery of photos from the shoot, read more
Lights, cameras and a heck of alot of action! No wonder Hollywood's A-listers always look so good. Check out this cool time lapse video of Michael Grecco shooting Martin Scorsese for OnDirecTV magazine. You'll see just how much time, effort and technology goes into one photoshoot. No wonder he looks so great at his age!
The contestants on "America's Next Top Model" (which, by the way, The CW is now calling a "dramality" series) had a bit of trouble with last week's political photo shoot. I particularly love this clip of Kathleen saying fur is ok if it comes from when "animals fight each other in the jungle."
So, this week, the show posed a challenge more in keeping with the girls' true talents: acting like high-schoolers. First, there was the prom-dress fashion show, where one model flashed her boobs to a gym full of students.
Then, for the Breakfast Club-inspired photo shoot challenge, the models were each assigned a high-school stereotype — the bookworm, the class president, and so on — and asked to pose in that persona. Ironically, the most immature model in the bunch, 19-year-old Samantha from Alabama (above), totally blew it, since she was so uncomfortable playing the school slut. And oh my god, how uncomfortable did Natasha make you? (For more discussion, check out the "ANTM" group on TeamSugar.)
