Fashion News: WTF? ANTM Gets Upgraded to Italian Vogue?!
Is Nothing Safe From Reality TV?
The CW held it’s annual upfronts today, where the president of entertainment for the channel announced that the winner of next season’s America’s Next Top Model will grace the cover of Italian Vogue, instead of Seventeen Magazine like the season before. Jay Manuel confirmed the news on his Twitter five hours ago.
Italian Vogue is the world’s most influential fashion magazine. America’s Next Top Model is a reality show depicting a very inaccurate portrayal into the fashion and modeling world. It is meant for entertainment purposes and the very few models that do actually work after the show do commercial modeling, not fashion. How did this happen?
LA Times Entertainment Editor, Joy Press, wrote on her Twitter saying “The next America’s Next Top Model winner will get cover of Italian Vogue, not 17. Which means they actually have to find…a top model.” Hopefully this next season they will be looking for a model with a more editorial look..
