It's coming! The 16th cycle of America's Next Top Model is set to premiere on Wednesday, February 23, 2011 and is sure to be entertaining! The prize is the same as Cycle 15's: a spread in Vogue Italia and contracts with IMG Models and CoverGirl.
Some of the faces will be the same, of course, including Jay Manuel as Creative Director, Miss J Alexander as Runway Diva Extraordinaire, Nigel Barker on the judging panel and often behind the camera, and Tyra Banks leading the team. But there will be many new additions to panel for Cycle 16! Famed stylist Rachel Zoe will join in on the fun, as well as international designer Lana Marks, model/stylist Erin Wasson, model/actress Alek Wek, Lori Goldstein, Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini, model Sonia Dara, Gossip Girl's costume designer/stylist Eric Daman, and designer Daniella Issa Helayel, and Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani, who has famously talked smack about ANTM since she made an appearance on Cycle 15.
