Tatianna is next, and Rachel thinks her photo is absolutely gorgeous. ALT loves the fragility and vulnerability in her body, and commends the romantic photo. Brenda is next. She won the challenge, but her photo would definitely hit the reject floor at Vogue, according to ALT. He adds a, "Slap!" for emphasis. In person Brenda looks fresh, edgy and strong, but when she's sidelit she looks old. Jessica is next, and her photo is just okay. What saves her is her way with a scarf-like wardrobe. Rachel says that she doesn't get Jessica's youth, freshness or energy in her photo. Then there's Angelea. Her hair is in her face, and ALT says it's a mess. Nigel tells her that the photo would have been better and sexier if she'd opened her mouth a bit.
Alexandra is next. Nigel thinks that her shot works as a photograph, but he doesn't get it as a photograph. However, Rachel thinks that her face is gorgeous. Tyra asks what happened at the fashion show, and we get to relive both the fall and the pendulum swing in sepia-toned glory yet again. Alexandra cries, because she doesn't want to go home. Rachel points out that, on the runway, Alexandra's anger and sadness was visible. She needs to keep that on the inside. Models fall all the time [There's a great youtube montage to prove it. -- Angel], and it's how you react afterwards that matters. Simone is next, and Nigel likes her body language. ALT wants Simone to relax, and says that they haven't seen the real Simone yet. Last up is Raina. Her photo is gorgeous, stunning perfection. She looks like a wolf, and Tyra wants to howl. Raina is smizing, and generally proving that she has "it."
The judges deliberate. Ren is an unspeakable trainwreck according to ALT. Rachel thinks that the shot is cold and depressing. Krista's photo is classy, and she's one of Rachel's favorites. ALT thinks that Naduah is dreckitude. Her pictures are average, says Nigel, and Tyra adds that she's flat. Tatianna expresses a beautiful fragility and looks much younger than she is. ALT thinks she did a great job. Rachel is nervous about Brenda being a model on her website. Tyra assures her that Brenda actually can take a picture, even if this one wasn't very good. Jessica's photo is not exciting, and ALT says he wants to be etonne. That means astonished. Nigel likes Angelea's photo, and everyone is surprised that she's able to deliver a feminine shot two weeks in a row. Alexandra's photo is very "Modeling 101," but ALT thinks she can learn. Simone is a pretty girl who has always been told how pretty she is, and needs to learn how to work harder. Raina is the greatest. Anslee is only evoking a jutting chin, according to ALT, but he adds that "sometimes a great, jutting, WASPy chin is needed." That may be my favorite thing he's said yet. Alasia doesn't stand out in the photo or on the runway, according to Rachel. But Tyra likes her photo, and how she looks like she's about to open a can of whoop-ass. Girl, that can has been opened and is now in the recycling bin. As Nigel says, "The smell of whoop-ass," the judges have reached a decision.
