Don’t ask me why I started watching Season 5 of Australia’s Next Top Model on YouTube, but I did and now here we are. I guess somewhere along the line of scrounging around for dirt on the incredibly hypocritical Charlotte Dawson, I stumbled upon this show.
Lola Van Vorst was a contestant in the 2009 season of Australia’s Next Top Model, and if you’ve watched it you will understand how different she looks in this shoot. I barely recognise the former brunette, she literally looks like a different person. I find there’s something really beautiful about this shoot, it feels very glamorous but there’s actually something really raw that lies beneath the surface. Maybe it’s Lola’s strong jawline and piercing eyes, but I think it’s something a little more than that, I just can’t place my finger on it.
