America's Next Top Model Cycle 19 Winner Announced!

America's Next Top Model has been and continues to be the most loved fashion-related Reality TV series, following a series of aspiring models hoping to impress the gorgeous Tyra Banks.

ANTM was one of the highlights during my childhood and when I returned to watch cycle 19, I fell in love once again.

Can I just say how amazing the panel is? Undoubtedly, there is a huge hole in the production with Nigel Barker missing, but BryanBoy (LOVE), Kelly Cutrone (LOVE, LOVE) and Rob Evans (*Almost dead from thinking about good looks*), definitely do a good job with filling it.

So, the winner was... Laura! The top 3, Laura, Kiara and Leila, were rightly chosen, yet a part of me was rooting for Kiara more than ever, knowing how much more she needed the experience and the money. However, there's no doubting Laura's modelling skills. She's a commercial goddess with a glowing look about her. Challenge winner time after time, Laura consistently proved that she had the ability to embrace a modelling contract, be the face of several beloved campaigns, yes... Smashbox and Nine West etc.

Looking forward to seeing Laura James' spread in NYLON and upcoming features in campaigns!
