“Aslaug wasn’t hip and cool enough.”
Nigel Barker is no stranger to reality television, having worked with Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model for 18 seasons. He’s the new host of Naomi Campbell‘s The Face, and was surprisingly not jaded about the whole idea of a modeling reality series when we caught up with
the noted fashion photographer him before the Mara Hoffman‘s gypsy-inspired show.
As coach of the new series “The Face,” supermodel Coco Rocha has imparted some hard-earned wisdom to her team of wannabe fashion models. Apparently, a thick skin and a healthy dose of quirkiness are must-haves.
Last night, Solange Knowles, Alek Wek, Nigel Barker, and more came out to celebrate the opening night of the American Ballet Theater‘s fall season. Thankfully, no one took to the night’s theme and dressed in a tutu or bodysuit.
America’s Next Top Model underwent a major facelift for its 19th cycle, the most drastic change being the replacement of the judges we all know and love: Jay Manuel, Miss J. Alexander, and Nigel Barker. Now Barker, a respected fashion photographer, has come out with a few things to say about the show’s executive producer, Tyra Banks.
Can you guess who? Hint: neither of their names are Tyra.
Miss J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker have been dismissed from America’s Next Top Model after 18 seasons. Now who’s going to teach aspiring models how to walk a runway and take fierce photographs?
We sort of expected to see Nigel Barker at the Whitney Eve runway show this morning, since it’s just been announced that he and designer Whitney Port will work together as judges on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model this year. But it turns out that Barker has worked with Port (he photographed her campaign) and he’s a legitimate fan of her career.
Sometimes, after a particularly intense weekend of couch lounging and America’s Next Top Model marathons, we’ve found ourselves dreaming of a world in which hottie photographer extraordinaire Nigel Barker waxed poetic about his deepest feelings while we cradled his beautiful and scent-free feet in our hands. Apparently, in Mary Alice Stephenson’s world, that’s called real life.
There are no shortage of actors and actresses who got their start — or at the very least, paid the bills — as models because obviously the two professions share a love for photogeneity and symmetrical features, but what about other now famous people? Despite modeling’s frivolous reputation, it turns out that more than a few titans of industry, politics, and media once posed for the camera — including the late President Gerald Ford.
