Brittani Kline, the 19 year-old trailer park girl who resides at Beach Creek, Pennsylvania triumphed over Molly O’Connell in the season finale of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 16.
For the finale, Brittani and Molly participated in a Vivienne Westwood “Anglomania” runway together with eliminated contestants Kasia, Alexandria and Hannah. Cycle 15 winner Ann Ward also joined them in the runway. Both Brittani and Molly also did a Covergirl shoot and Commercial and had their Beauty in Vogue photoshoots.
Brittani was noted for her urban style runway by judge Andre Leon Talley despite the giggle and the fall. Her covergirl photo was deemed stellar because of her edginess and she had definitely improved in her commercial. Judge Nigel Barker noted how her profile shots were amazing – one side having a sexy smirk while the other side being fresh and wholesome. Tyra Banks also loved how asymmetrical her face is and saw her as a true example that not all models should have symmetrical faces. It was a neck and neck fight as Molly O’Connell was a strong competitor for she had stunning photos that the judges deemed as high fashion and “Vogue Italia” worthy. In the end, it was Brittani Kline who was victorious. She received a 100,000 contract from Covergirl, a contract with IMG Models, a spread in Vogue Italia and the cover of Beauty In Vogue and a feature in vogue.it.
Congratulations to Ms. Brittani Kline for being America’s Next Top Model.
