America's Next Top Model (Cycle 10)
Five other full-figured models tried before her but it was the Twenty-one year old student from Atlantic Beach, Florida who became the first full-figured model to win the coveted title of America's Next Top Model Cycle 10.
Whitney received favorable reviews on her looks and photo shoots on and off. She was often accused of being too beauty pageanty and was even once compared to Anna Nicole Smith (who's idea was it to turn her into a blonde anyway - oh yeah, Tyra's). Despite the negativity she managed to maintain her composure and apply what she learned about herself and the other models to the following week.
As a winner of ANTM, Whitney received a contract with Elite Model Management, a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl Cosmetics and a six page spread and cover in Seventeen magazine (July 2008 issue).
I look forward to seeing and hearing more of this beauty.

According to US standard clothing size Whitney falls into a few categories. Based on her chest size alone she can either be a Misses size 14 or Catalog size 8. Because her hips are bigger (making her pear shaped) she falls into Misses size 18 or Catalog size 16. According to a quote in her Seventeen spread she is size 14.

The perky authority on all things girl since 1944, Seventeen magazine still provides advice and encouragement to masses of young misses. Although the primary focus is fashion and famous folk, this teen zine is not mere eye candy. Mixed among the cutting-edge styles (and multitudinous ads) you'll find short but plentiful articles. Topics range in import: fluff stuff like "What Will You Wear Back to School?" and "The Ultimate Ponytail Guide" is balanced by heavier fodder, such as "No One Believes I Was Raped" and pieces on having a gay sibling and the dangers of binge drinking.

Share your stories, sightings, thoughts, rants, raves...
Some of you leave some great comments but they never see the light of day because you choose to add the "F" or "S" word (or some other derogatory word). If you can't make your point without using it then no one is going to take you seriously anyway. Especially in this format.
I use swear words in the day to day all the time so no I'm not a prude but when it comes to this lens swear words can turn this lens into a "R" rated one which is something I don't want.
So here's the deal. Tidy up your language and your comment gets posted. It's as simple as that. Thank you for your cooperation.
