Whitney: C11 finale & CG ad #11
Last week's episode of America's Next Top Model constituted the finale of Cycle 11, and, sadly, also brought to an end Whitney Thompson's celebrated "My Life as a CoverGirl" series.
Whitney's CoverGirl commercials surpassed anyone's hopes. They displayed stunning cinematography worthy of a feature film, and were shot in gorgeous locations whose natural beauty harmonized perfectly with the model's own timeless charms. Moreover, the company filmed Miss Thompson in an attractive and size-positive way.
Whitney's final CoverGirl commercial comprised a series of highlights from past installments, featuring shots for which we have already created screencaps. Please visit the previous CoverGirl threads on this forum to view stills of the images in this ad. However, the following lovely shot of Whitney in a New York taxicab originally appeared in the very first CoverGirl spot, but we missed it at that time, due to a technical glitch. It was fortunately repeated in this recap commercial, so here it is at last, preceding a link to the video of the ad itself.
Besides starring in her MLAACG commercial, Whitney also made two guest appearances during the final Cycle 11 episode--and of course, she completely outshone this season's competitors.
In each season of America's Next Top Model, the winner of the previous cycle headlines the final runway show. Here we see Whitney arriving for this climactic event, the camera taking the opportunity to catch a glimpse of her decolletage.
She saunters forth in her signature, voluptuous manner--the ultra-feminine walk that made her the star of every Cycle 10 runway show.
Barring appearances by Whitney in future cycles of ANTM, this is the culmination of her time with the show. She beat all the odds (odds that were heavily stacked against her) to become the first plus-size winner in the show's history, and remains by far the most attractive and talented girl ever to appear on the program. The odds of there ever being another contestant as inspiring as Miss Thompson are virtually nil. She set a standard that no other model will be able to match, and in the process inspired a whole generation of curvy girls to realize that they are more beautiful, more exciting, and more deserving of the best things in life than their underweight rivals.

It really is a pity that Whitney isn't fuller-figured. If she was, she'd be just about perfect as a plus-size model. The idea that the fashion world resists even her size, which is very thin, is ludicrous.
By the way, I know that everyone here prefers classical music, but I like the fact that Whitney's last CoverGirl commercial had as its soundtrack a cover of "I Melt with You," but Modern English - a song that is wistful and, in its own way, quite sweet. Say what you will, but popular music in the early 1980s was almost tolerable (something it wasn't before, and hasn't been since). It was relatively melodic, and some of the early music videos of the time were quite creative.
