this photo triggers emotions, which a good photo will do.  This photo is grotesque, but stunning.  Best photo of the season.




eerily beautiful





I've shared my experience with eating disorders so this photo although it won't win will always be my favorite of C7. 






This picture is chilling. I feel like it’s not exactly my place to speak on the concept, but Michelle really took the narrative to a dark place, and that’s why I think this works so well. The outstretched hand that plays with perspective, the vulnerable body positioning, the ashamed look in her eyes, it’s just all very heavy. She truly produced an unforgettable picture this week.




I know the narrative of the season for the Twins was that Amanda wanted it more but Michelle was naturally more talented and that was never really on display more than picture one (of the real photoshoots). Easily one of the best shots of the cycle. 




When Mr. Jay walked up to the girls and said this would be one of the most controversial photoshoots ever, he wasn't just referring to Monique pretending to be Naomi Campbell well, Tyra probably thought he was lol. Taking shots of the models pretending to have eating disorders or be an intravenous drug user was actually kind of a big deal. The effect is just dulled a bit when you have seen girls in graves and in blackface, etc. I think this particular concept in another model's hands might have been a miss, but Michelle stepped up to the plate and delivered. I do think it works better as a set with Amanda's shot from this week, but if I'm judging them individually, this blows Amanda's out of the water. Not surprised to see it in the Top 2. Dee's cryptic write-up that he never finished sends me, lmao




Such a disturbing picture that shows what some models actually go through. It's so disturbing that it works.




The concept is still a bit yikes for me and I find portraying serious illnesses like this to be a bit exploitative, especially when you're having CariDee read a book upside down in the same photoshoot. However, Michelle really delivered here. Her photo is so ugly and so hard to look at, but I guess that's the point and she did her job. Michelle really blew me away here.




I feel bad for being so torn on this photo. I think my issues come more with the photoshoot itself than how Michelle did. It is undeniably a harrowing shot and she captures it well, but it never felt like a model shot for me. I guess I could say that about a lot of the shots on this show however lol.

One of the best photos from any cycle




one of my favorite shots ever :wub:




There’s a lot I could say about this picture, but ultimately, I could boil it down to one word: genius. The tension in her hands, the hunched-over back, the daring look in her eyes, it all comes together perfectly. She completely threw herself into this concept, and her commitment paid off. 




Duh. The definition of iconic. Like Nicole two cycles ago with her B&W shot, this helped clinch CariDee the win.




STUNNING. Easily my favorite photo of the cycle.




I thought this had the chance to go for the record for our game, since this cycle was crunchy. But there were still some detractors here.




Haunting and chilling photo. It's so striking. It's a perfect example of "ugly pretty".




It's iconic and incredibly powerful. Go Tyra for getting such an excellent shot here from CariDee.




She succeeded.
