The CW has done it again and this time they are importing some British inspiration for the 18th cycle of America’s Next Top Model.
America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion is hitting the CW airwaves next week and E! got the scoop on all the drama headed our way from the other side of the pond. In the season premiere, models will be portraying famous British and American icons like the late Amy Winehouse.
Exclusive photos show the British models channeling their roots: Catherine will be Queen Elizabeth I, Jasmia takes on the legendary John Lennon, and Louise gets her own beehive as Winehouse. American models get in touch with their own history as well: AzMarie commands attention as George Washington, Kyle gets artsy with Andy Warhol and Mariah is all original new world as Pocahontas.
The panel of judges includes returning Top Model diva Tyra Banks. She will be joined by the tell it like it is Kelly Cutrone, a personal favorite, and the charming photographer, Nigel Barker. Creative Director and Runway Coaches, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander – respectively – bring the meat to this fleshy battle of looks.
America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion makes its premiere Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 9 p.m. on the CW.
