America's Last Top Model

Okay, so I think I'll be labelled a huge loser for this blog for two reasons. One being my second blog of the day and two it's in response to the last season of a reality show (just tacky). But I'm obsessed with glamour. If a model looks flawless in a picture, I literally stop and gawk. But it has to be EVERYTHING about the picture that grabs my attention; if I find even the smallest flaw, I'll hate the picture forever and whatever or whomever is in it.

So, because I am addicted to America's Next Top Model (thanks Jamie; no really, THANK you) and because this season is rather addictive, but the photos are not the best; I'm gonna comment on last season's photos and models, hilariously.

Ah Christina. This photo is perfect! Here she is protraying the deadly sin of 'Lust' and I think she does it flawlessly. It's not just that she's in red lingerie but it's her pose. The hair is perfect (gives it a 1940's touch I think; and we all know they were mad-horny back then) as is her make-up, it is over the top, but that's to accentuate her sexiness. Her look reminds me of seductress, not a whore or hooker, but just class. Sex and Class. Lust is so much more than sex, it's everything before sex - and she got that.

Michelle is representing the deadly sin of Pride. Again, another winner. It's completely over-aggregated and almost has a snobbish feel to it - and it's THIS that makes it perfect! That's what pride is, making others feels that little bit of insecurity about any accomplishments they have; because someone has some that are so much better. Her make-up is too much but it works again, she needs it to make herself feel proud. You can't see it in the picture, but she's holding a trophy and her pose (her legs up and one sort of crossed over the other) is a perfect pose. It's almost like she's in mid leg-flick do to be so damn proud of herself.

I've heard perfection it's called "Ain't No Sunshine" by Christina Christian. I've tasted perfection it's called "Dairy Cream Ice Cream Cake" but by God, I've now seen it and it's called Kahleen. I'm absolutely in love with this picture! The look on her face, the pose her body takes (she's trying to get out of the coffin, her arms and legs hitting hard against the coffin) her make-up and I think what seals the deal here, is her teeth. They're almost fang-like - if she finds you, she's gonna get you. The outfit is another stunner - a corset with a thick collar - sexy but not cheesy like she belongs to the Addams Family. Flawless.

Hard to believe this Sun Goddess of the Forest is the Deadly Sin of Wrath, no? But they are! Her hair, her look (although I admit, her mouth is slightly agap, but that's what touch-ups are for!) the way the sun reflects off her hair - another amazing photo. Her pose as well, she's lying on a log in front of a waterfall. Looks like she's heard something and is checking it out; just like an animal, dare I say Lionness? Perfection again.

Naima, the winner of America's Next Top Model Season 4. And I have to admit, if the title was given based on this photo it was well deserved. It's not her face (because she poses the exact same face, EVERY time; you need a cheetah? the sin of envy? an alien on her carhood? no problem naima can do all three! just put a new backgroud in and poof you just saved yourself a mighty pretty penny) but her pose. She's sold this picture based on her body alone. She's looks incredibly tall, looking straight in the camera, knowing she has all those men wrapped around her finger and it looks like she was just caught doing an incredibly sexy dance. The arching of her back and flick of her wrist (which unfortunately got cut off) was perfect.

Now my pick for America's Next Top Model Season 5 will be announced soon, I'm conflicted right now, none of the pictures are something that have made my jaw dropped. But I think after this episode I should have my top 2 (and I'm fairly certain they won't be Jayla or Nik) At most I'll have my top 3. Stay tuned.

It's Kahlen, not Kahleen - DAMMIT Darek, get your shit together or so help me I will slap you 'til my hand hurts, then slap you some more for making it hurt.

Also, I think Lisa is a misunderstood drunk and deserves to win. She has some personality issues but between Bree's horse trot walk, Jayla's hidden bitch persona and Kim's cooler than thou uber-dyke approach it should be a Nik, Lisa, Jayla finale....maybe Kyle.
