HER first appearance on Americas Next Top Model caused controversy when a judge showed he could fit both hands round her tiny waist. But model wannabe Ann Wards ultra slim physique did not deter the judges in tonights finale of the hit TV show. The 62 gangly model from Dallas was declared the winner of the programme, landing a modelling contract, a spread in Italian Vogue and a $100,000 contract to advertise Cover Girl cosmetics. The 19-year-old was overcome with emotion after judges including designer Roberto Cavalli, Vogue magazines Andre Leon Tally and host Tyra Banks told her she had beaten 22-year-old finalist Chelsey Hersley from Idaho. 'Im so honoured right now, said Ann who told Tyra she was bullied at school because of her unusual appearance. 'All those comments about being tall and just not normal. Theyre going to look back and feel I should have been so nice to that girl. However, Chelsey, who says she has wanted to be a supermodel since she was three-years-old, did not take her loss well. 'I feel cheated. I feel I have the whole package, she said. 'And I dont think Ann does. But, after watching the show back Wednesday night, Chelsey admitted Ann definitely took better photographs than she did. She said: 'I had time to realize I made it to the final two. Im the runner-up to Americas Next Top Model. I think thats a huge accomplishment. Im really proud of myself. I think the Cycle is more elevated, more high fashion. And I find myself to be very high fashionable and editorial, but Ann took amazing pictures. When it came down to it, Ann took better pictures than I did. Daily Mail
