Let Them Eat Steak!

March 14, 2008 5:33 PM

You wanna be on top? Of a bunch of cold, raw meat?

Even if they didn’t want to, the ladies of The CW’s "America’s Next Top Model," now in its 10th cycle, had to look happy to be posing in a meat-themed photo shoot this week. The girls had to work their stuff among giant racks of beef and even wear some slabs on their body. It isn’t high fashion unless an animal dies.

Here we have some of the girls who received positive feedback for their pictures. Anya molded her body like a true model and worked with her surroundings.


Meanwhile, Whitney wore meat panties.


And to think, it used to be that the most uncomfortable thing models would get stuck in their underwear was sand.

Then there's Amis, who a-missed the mark while shoving some meat around and was sent home.


While a picture may be worth 1,000 words, the only word Amis suggests is "vegetarian." And Tyra Banks was not having any of that—she likes her meat.

Coming up next week, PETA stages an "America’s Next Top Model" boycott.

Is The Daily Blink the only one who finds it confusing that at the beginning of the last cycle of the show Tyra was all about having a “green” competition, forbidding the girls to smoke and shuttling them around Los Angeles in a smog-friendly bus? That trend didn’t last very long. But then again, no trend in fashion ever does.
