If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model, you accept the fact that there’ll be at least a handful, if not more, completely bonkers photo shoots per cycle. They may have some kernel of modeling truth to them, but for the most part, they’re exercises in reality excesses and serve as a way to test how the models handle extreme circumstances. There have been fun/unique photos that come from the messy themes and circus atmosphere, though for the most part, it can get pretty dire.
On the next episode of Top Model, titled “The Girl Who Cries Home”, the girls have a taxidermy-themed photo shoot that they have to conquer. Using only their neck, different angles, and a variety of facial expressions, they have to bring life to a concept shrouded in the dead and the inanimate; it’ll be a shoot that tests a lot of baseline fashion knowledge, only gussied up to be pretty silly and Top Model-y. The guest photographer for the shoot, the first after the top 13 was decided last week, will be 90210′s Shenae Grimes, who gets into the moment with creative consultant Johnny Wujek and even has a photo of her own taken.
I wonder if she’ll be hanging that on the wall when she gets home.
