The cover of Vogue is the pinnacle of any model's career. The honor can lead to high-end fashion and beauty contracts, film, TV and commercial roles and entrepreneurial enterprises.
If you are currently reading this, then I believe congratulations are in order! Yes, pat yourself on your assumedly emaciated back -- you deserve it for having survived the most boring cycle of America's Next Top Model ever!
I don't know what kind of maltreatment has been going down in the America's Next Top Model house this time around, but everyone looks severely wounded and desperate to escape.
