You wanna be on top? If so, the standards are on the rise on America’s Next Top Model where contestants will now have to work to compete on a whole other level: their high fashion sense. That’s right, popular Vogue editor André Leon Talley has signed onto the judging panel for the next three seasons of the show. Tyra has been pursuing Talley since before the show’s first season but Talley declined the offer in the past, as he was unsure of the show’s future. Now, after thirteen successful seasons, Talley hopes to bring a high-fashion edge to the panel, a perspective that they have lacked almost entirely in the past. So congratulations André and good luck ladies because now it looks like we’ll be watching to see who can stay in the running to become America’s Next Top Model and fashionista!
