Sorry, B-I-NTM. The best fashion reality show since, like ever - Britain’s Next Top Model - is baaa-ack! And this time, it’s camper than ever. Just look at Julien’s hair!
Grazia Daily was given a sneaky screening of the new season at London’s swanky Soho Hotel, where we got to hang out with the luminous Elle Macpherson along with her fellow judges Grace Woodward, Julien Macdonald and Charley Speed. And – AND - George Lamb, who acts as one of the guest judges for this season, and who’s jacket we gently stroked on the way out of the screening. Stalkerish, moi?
Now expanded to include Ireland (lots of ‘very pretty, pale and interesting girls’, according to Grace Woodward) and with the judges going on the road to find talent (cue some VERY confident but decidedly plain looking girls mouthing off at Elle), BINTM has been fully rebranded and repackaged for cycle 7 and having seen the first episode, let us tell you this for nothing: it’s brill.
Almost as brill as the series, in fact, is the amaze trailer which we have for you below along with some VERY helpful crib notes. Enjoy!
0.11. The ghost of Elle Macpherson stalks the halls of BNTM dressed in Anna Dello Russo's cast-offs.
014. This totally rains on Tyra. Pah!
0.28 How lovely that Victoria Beckham has become a judge for the new season! David looks nice in that green bow tie, too.
0.32. Not in the face, Grace, NOT IN THE FACE…
037. Is that Nancy del’Olio?
038. No! It’s Steve Strange!
0.42 Or is it Ollie from Made in Chelsea?
0.52. Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
1.01. A level of insanity hitherto untapped. We. Can. Not. Wait.
BINTM starts on Sky Living HD on Monday 4th July, and Grazia Daily will be reviewing the series as usual, as well as bringing you exclusive chats with the evicted girls.
