If you haven't been watching Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model lately, then where have you been?! We love it here at Lipsy HQ, it's our Monday night Fashion Fix with supermodel Elle Macpherson heading up the judging panel supported by fashion designer Julien MacDonald, celebrity stylist Grace Woodward and (super hot) male model Charley Speed.
This week was a tough one with the famous trip to the hair salon for a makeover. Set for tears and tantrums, all in the name of beauty and sophistication, some of girls had it chopped and some not and what was supposed to be the ultimate transformation was the make or break of wannabe models in the competition.
The pressure was on and if cutting their hair wasn't challenge enough, the girls then had to pose nude for one of Elle's fav photographers Nihat Odabasi. Needless to say that went down like led balloons and resulted in Ufuoma (who we thought was a stunner) getting the axe! However, Tanya and Jessica on the other hand totally nailed it and we think they're ones to watch.
Chipmunk made a brief appearance at the model house and performed one of his songs in the bar area, love it! And while there may be a few weeks left before we know who'll be crowned BINTM we do know that the winner is in for a supermodel treat. They'll sign with major model agency Models 1, be on the cover of Company magazine (like Pixie was last month!), get a £50,000 campaign, plus win a trip to Sandals in Jamaica!
Haaa...it's a hard life being a model...the glamour, the fame...but, Elle does make it seem oh so easy. She always gets the essentials right with her red carpet appearances and though she may be famous for her edgy and sportier styles, when put to the test she knows how to flip her look to be the centre of attention at her A-List events. In true model fashion, copy Elle's LBD look here with Lipsy's top picks and pair with a boyfriend style watch to complete your outfit.
