Anslee is next. Her profile shot gets raves. Tyra says she'd buy some foundation from Anslee, even though she's the wrong color. Tyra is inspired by Anslee's "cheekboneness." I think we need a very special kind of interpreter for this show. Ren is next, and says the shoot was tough with the contacts and the cold and the trouble breathing. Tyra says that Ren looks like she has a cold in her photo, and Nigel adds that it's the sort of picture that sells H1N1 vaccine. This remark inspires a smirk from Alasia. Tyra tells Ren to fight through the discomfort, and ALT adds that she should take out the contact lenses and go blind. Sound advice.
Next is Krista. Her photo is stunning, and she reminds ALT of Naomi Sims. He adds that it's a joyous thing to see. Nigel says that Krista adds fantasy by opening her eyes when naturally they should be squinting. She gets raves all around, which must be a nice change of pace after last week. Naduah's best shot has a drama to it, according to ALT, but it's stereotypical drama and not true magic. Like a screaming, spoon-throwing fight as opposed to writing in someone's brownies. ALT doesn't think there's any thought behind it. Tyra thinks that Naduah's photo looks like an ad, and that she needs to get past the exaggerated French-accented "advertisement." In other news, Tyra pours some water and instructs Naduah to wipe the clown makeup off her face. Naduah has drawn on eyebrows where Tyra bleached them, which was a really bad call and does not go unnoticed.
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."
