The CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” has lined up a cavalcade of stars for the 13th cycle of their show. I’m sad they’ve bumped Paulina Porizkova (right) off the judging panel because I liked what she had to say most of the time, but I do like some of the guest judges they have scheduled, like Lauren Conrad from “The Hills” and model Marisa Miller. The show premieres on Wednesday, September 9th.
Remember, this is the Short Girl Cycle. Only girls 5’7 and under could apply. I wonder if we’ll notice? Like, if it were a mixture of tall and short girls, the shorties would definitely stand out but if they’re all under 5’7, maybe it won’t make a difference in the photographs?
