The rumors are true, Rita Ora will in fact host America’s Next Top Model when the show makes its comeback on VH1. And she will be joined by model Ashley Graham, “Paper Magazine” chief creative officer Drew Elliott and celebrity stylist Law Roach.
Former host and exec producer, Tyra Banks spoke with USAToday and explained how modeling has changed and the revamped show will showcase that.“It’s no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair. My goal is to really get into these girls’ heads that I’m not looking for some successful model and I’m not looking for some social-media star. I’m looking for both. I’m looking for a hybrid, because that’s where the world is.”
And just when Tyra thought Top Model was dead—Vh1 brought it back to life. “I thought we were done with the brand. But the fact that the brand still has viability, and that VH1 really truly sees a strong future with it, how could I say no to that?”And of course Tyra will make a few appearances.
Th new “America’s Next Top Model” will premiere on VH1 this fall.
