Bianca emerges next, looking fly in her teeny flouncy skirt. Tyra notes that Bianca has been working up a storm, and says that she's undergone a serious transformation from hood girl to...whatever she is now. Bianca tells the panel that she's 22 now, and she's trying to be a lady. I just love that "lady" is her conceptual goal. She's like Fancy. Tyra points out that the hood girl will always live inside of Bianca. And sometimes she'll claw her way up to Bianca's mouth and scream something mean at somebody. Nigel thinks that Bianca's photo is stunning, and says that for some odd reason it looks like a vintage picture. ALT thinks that it's TOO vintage, and tells her it reminds him of Foxy Brown. Bianca is all smiles and thank yous, because of how she's so ladylike now.
Bre comes out next, looking every bit the cool, casual girl in her loose blue pants and white tank top. She tells the panel that she's been working as a professional model for the last six years. If you check out her Wikipedia entry, you will be impressed. Nicki asks Bre why she cut her hair, and Bre says, "Because the check looked good enough." Now that is logic you just can't argue with. Nigel jokes that he grew his for the same reason, and adds that he's rocking an all-star weave. He's like a doddering old uncle now, isn't he? It must be something to be the Randy Jackson of America's Next Top Model. ALT is not in love with Bre's photo, and says that it's clichÃ© and can be done by anyone. Nicki Minaj is still obsessed with Bre's hair, and says that if she's going to go short, she should also go sleek. Everything else, however, looks dope. Bre doesn't seem to have much reaction to anything, which leads me to believe that "because the check looked good enough" is the philosophy that has led her to be with us today.
Kayla is next, and announces to the crowd that in her photo she is portraying a supergay. ALT loves her face in the photo, but not the fist. He will have no fisting in his salon. Nicki loves Kayla's dress, shoes, and sexy legs, but nothing else. So, basically, good job wardrobe people and God. Better luck next time, Kayla. Standing on the runway, it must be said, Kayla looks some kind of gorgeous. Laura is up next, and emerges to the biggest reaction we've heard so far. This makes sense, as she is clearly uber-lovable in all of her drunken, cow-castrating glory. Tyra notes that Nicki is all about fashion, and suggests that she ask Laura about the origins of her outfit. Three words: Grandma Wanda Sue! Would you not give one arm for Wanda Sue to appear on Project Runway? I'd pair her with Bert for a challenge in which you have to make a three piece collection using only animal by-products. Nicki tells Grandma Wanda Sue to holla at the kid. She does not, however, put in any orders. Laura's fishing photo is the greatest. ALT tells her that she takes Hee-Haw and makes it high fashion. He also thinks that the House of Wanda Sue is rocking for her.
