Some catwalk action, some toothpaste and a shoot with Simon Upton was ALL it took this week, for Natalie Portman look-alike Maddie to come undone. GEE THAT GIRL WAS PRETTY! Bye M. *Sad face*
Before we get into the nitty gritty, I believe this week's Academy Award goes to…THE RECEPTIONIST! How funny was he? From his, 'Do you have a lazy-eye?' to his 'She has a dirty collar,' the LOLS were hard to deny.
Now we're down to the top eight, let's talk shop.
As Charlotte says, this girl has the nineties supermodel thing down. She looks a treat but I suspect her confidence is stopping her from hitting the heights of Cindy.
Why-oh-why is this girl not hitting it out of NYC's Lincoln Center week-on-week? She has model written ALL over her (except for maybe her height) and I'm not willing to let go of my hopes that she will be the next Gemma Ward. Seemingly, neither are the judges.
Little Duckie got lucky last week with Taylah's disqualification ensuring she stayed in the comp and after this week's shot, I'm SO glad she did. This girl has it. And will be heading to Milan whether we like it or not. That smile. *Swoon*
The more Abbie opens her mouth, the more I fall in love with her. Having said that, the judges are a little concerned about her upper lip. And she can look a tad awkward in photos. But I reck' she has the catwalk thing down. PS. Did you see she was wearing Taylah's infamous 'GEEK' shirt while in Hair + Makeup?
Good on her for landing the campaign. My fave Jade-ism this week was:
"Eight weeks ago, I was just chilling in Blacktown!"
Have a dream? Jade is proof that you should go forth and conquer!
Like all the best contests, there's that one girl who sneaks up from behind and takes the cake from all the others and this is Shanali, every single week. Can do no wrong!
I feel for Ashley. She seems to be having a hard time. Despite that, she still puts the G in Glamour and is one of the more naturally beautiful girls.
Beauty shots. Catwalk. Challenges. This girl is, in her own words, 'fierce' and puts 5000% into every. single. thing. But beyond these talents, for me it's really about one thing: the brows. Oh and her turn of phrase, "What. Just. Happened?" (!!!) Love.
Yours SO excited that it's getting down to the top model wire!
