Drew welcomes the model to a grocery store, the location for their next photoshoot. He explains that the shoot is inspired by a Chanel runway show.
Ehh, I’d guess it has more to do with how under-budget it was for ANTM to rent a bodega for the day, but inspiration can come in many forms! Honestly, when I first saw the preview for the shoot, I thought the real source of inspiration was this meme:
Somehow, half the models can’t even manage to hit this mark, though.
Speaking of inspiration, the designer responsible for the day’s outfits is Nicola Formichetti, the man behind Lady Gaga’s outrageous looks. To determine which model will wear which dress, he meets with them one-on-one to discover their essence.
Nicola repeats a phrase we hear a lot this episode, and countless times in Top Model past: “Wear the dress, don’t let the dress wear you.” It’s a meaningless cliché at this point, but the intent is obviously to indicate that the models shouldn’t let the dress overpower them. That’s a lot easier said than done in avant-garde dresses that are designed explicitly to steal all the attention.
When Nicola meets with Giah, he wants to transform her into a bombshell. Possibly literally.
Actually, she’s assigned something equally as explosive: balloons. We can’t even tell that she’s got balloons under her tutu until later, though, which made this quote especially outrageous:
Is Giah smuggling cocaine in her anus?! The winner of ANTM 23 truly has to be it all: a supermodel, a brand, a business, a boss, and a drug mule.
Because the balloons aren’t visible unless Giah is literally tipped over for an upskirt shot (classy!) Drew has her lay down on the meat section and he finds the results surprisingly unsatisfying.
Yeah, well no duh it looks like shit! This whole thing is shit! She can barely move around either or her dress pops!
The judges are more receptive to Paige’s shot in the same location, calling it:
That doesn’t even make sense, although I suppose the steak has a longer shelf life than Britney’s first marriage. For my money, Paige looks about as dead as the meat products she’s reclining on.
India is criticized for looking “short.” When they dress you to look like a blob, it’s important to look like an elongated blob!
Drew chews out Kyle a good deal for not reflecting the environment she’s in. Apparently, he wants her to be ecstatic to wear deadly shoes in a grocery store. “Pretend you’re at the store opening!” he instructs her. Kyle smiles but the reaction is not good enough. Drew stresses the excitement of being at a store opening, but who the hell gets even a tiny bit excited at a grocery store opening?
If this is really how Drew reacts to a store opening, Whole Foods should hire him quick!
Nicola gets one look at Krislian and decides she’s too sexy. (An exasperated Krislian finally wonders aloud, “Is it because I’m Latina?” Sadly, probably!) Telling her that “oversexed becomes cheesy” and tries to play against her image by putting her in over-the-top funeral garb.
The editors try to make Krislian look incompetent during her shoot, but of course her veil is going to get stuck on her crown if they make her throw it over head. They actually show this exact clip twice to make it seem like it keeps happening, too. Drew thinks she’s not doing right by this “million dollar dress.”
You know how we know these aren’t really million dollar dresses? No one seems to give a shit when Marissa drenches herself in milk.
The judges adore Marissa’s photo, even though it’s pretty much an ass shot. They think she captured the right mood for the shoot and I can’t disagree because, again, it’s an ass shot.
All in all, though, I love how bizarre these photos are. That’s some vintage WTF ANTM right there, and the reason I continue to tune in.
5 Funniest Moments from America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23 Ep. 5
It was released on November 7, 1995 and was the follow-up to the highly successful Dirt. The band relies less on metallic riffs and more on melody and texturally varied arrangements, integrating some of the more delicate acoustic moods of their EPs. This is the band’s last studio album to feature vocalist Layne Staley before his death in 2002. It received double platinum certification from the RIAA and has sold over three million copies worldwide.
About music and lyrics
Cantrell, in an interview around the release of the album, said, “Our music’s kind of about taking something ugly and making it beautiful.” With the exceptions of “Grind”, “Heaven Beside You”, and “Over Now”, the lyrics are all written by Staley. Staley said, “I just wrote down whatever was on my mind…so a lot of the lyrics are really loose.
If you asked me to sing the lyrics to probably any one of them right now, I couldn’t do it. I’m not sure what they are because they’re still that fresh.” Staley added, “For a long time I let problems and sour relationships rule over me instead of letting the water roll off my back…I thought it was cool that I could write such dark, depressing music. But then instead of being therapeutic, it was starting to drag on and keep hurting. This time I just felt, ‘Fuck it. I can write good music, and if I feel easy and I feel like laughing, I can laugh.’ There’s no huge, deep message in any of the songs. It was just what was going on in my head right then. We had good times, and we had bad times. We recorded a few months of being human.”
Of the album’s four singles, “Grind”, “Heaven Beside You”, “Over Now”, and “Again”, three feature Cantrell on lead vocals. Cantrell also wrote the lyrics for the songs for which he sang lead vocals. Regarding “Grind”, Cantrell said it was written at “pretty much at the height of publicity about canceled tours, heroin, amputations, everything, thus it was another ‘FUCK YOU for saying something about my life’ song.” “Heaven Beside You” was written by Cantrell after the break-up of his girlfriend of seven years. He described the song as “Another attempt to reconcile the fact that my life and paths are tearing me apart from the person I love.” Commenting on “Over Now”, Cantrell said of the song: “A lot of deep shit in there, a big epic number. Plus you can get away with a hugely long tune near the end of a record.”
Nyle’s been toward the back of the pack so far in the competition, but all of that is about to change. It starts out with an invitation from Lacey to “chill” in the Tyra Suite. I like how she thinks she can just make up sign language to convey the message to him, like pointing at the ceiling means Tyra Suite.
Hey, unlike some of the others in the house, at least she’s trying. Nyle must have taught her how to say “sexy” in real ASL, too. It’s an important word to know, I guess, when you have a hot deaf friend.
Last week, there was a moment when Kelly Cutrone seemed to quietly fall in love with Nyle after she asked to see his (bare) waist. She clearly liked the view because this week she’s asking for a repeat performance. When Nyle tugs at the bottom of his tank top, Kelly’s like, you might as well take it all the way off, then. Hmm… might as well?
Kelly can’t control her excitement when he strips it off. It’s interesting that Kelly suddenly sees model potential in Nyle now that she knows she can make him take his shirt off whenever she wants. She names Nyle the challenge winner “simply be”cause mamma like, mamma like.
Nyle’s confidence carries over to his photo shoot, where for the first time, Yu Tsai is impressed with his posing. Separately, both Devin and Bello curse over the fact that Nyle might be bigger competition than they thought.
Tyra loves the picture; I think she meant to say “Fifteen Chapel,” though. To be honest, I don’t see why this photo is any better than the others. What I do see is probably the real reason Tyra is enamored — and it’s the same reason she was enamored with Keith: a big old crotch. There is an unmistakable penis bulge at the center of that photo, and I don’t have to tell you that the judges want to see more.
For what it’s worth, Nyle seems happy to comply. Soon after, Tyra awards him Best Photo and congratulates him for being a “pimp daddy.” Remember - Ramon has to sign that to him. Whatever they’re paying Ramon, it’s not enough.
It seems like Nyle and Lacey will have an extended stay in the Tyra Suite, so look out, Lacey’s hymen! Also be sure to lock the Tyra Suite doors if you don’t want a surprise visit from Kelly Cutrone in the middle of the night. I doubt that Kelly’s childhood friend taught her how to sign “I want to fuck you, Nyle,” but given that Kelly’s facial expressions have already communicated that much, I’m sure she’ll find a way to get the message across.
everyone. I wanted to talk about to you about Supergirl’s last ep 2x06
“Changing” and especially on how and why Maggie reacted like that. I heard some
of you say that you didn’t get why she said those things, who were even angry
with her for rejecting our sweet baby gay Alex. Also heard RIP Sanvers … They
aren’t done … Far from that. I have true faith in the storyline. So yeah I want
to talk about that :D Buckle up cuz I’m gonna do a post explaining this with
gifs ♥ Don’t hesitate to comment it too ♥
So … Let’s start with the general overview of Alex’s story ^^ I’ll get to
TV is all about conflicts … angst. TV shows
(and movies too actually) almost never do long-lasting, happy, perfect
relationships. It’s all about challenges, misunderstandings, obstacles …
What are the steps … The storyline … The
scenario of a story ?
First, there’s a starting position : Alex
aka badass woman working with the DEO, protecting her sister, confident about
herself. She found her place at the DEO with Hank and her sister.
