Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off this Thursday in New York City, but Nigel Barker has a shoot taking priority in New York this week. Worry not: He left his terrible hairstyle from last year's Fashion Week behind, and is back in prime, bald form. The devilishly handsome noted fashion photog and America's Next Top Model judge cleared his schedule for a very special photo shoot this week celebrating four aspiring models suffering from terminal illnesses.

Through the Make-a-Wish foundation, four lucky young ladies got the chance to be treated like supermodels for a day — from the limos, to the celeb stylists, to a fashion shoot with Nigel, himself.

"They've almost become like princesses in front of my lens," a choked-up Nigel said of his models-for-a-day. "Their heart and soul is in their eyes. And the life they've led, as difficult as it might be, you see how beautiful they are, and that courage that they have just shines straight through."

Check out the vid to see the transformations, and be sure to bring tissues.
