I don't think she is too thin.

But I don't think she is very attractive either. She has really ugly eyebrows.

I would think there are prettier girls out there (in fact I work with a couple).

I work in a very fashionable district in NYC with models walking around all over the place. I literally see them everyday. Most are rather plain looking, very rarely do I see one I'd call beautiful. Which makes sense - their purpose is to sell a product, not to steal the spotlight.

Considering the theme of this season's ANTM, she seems the perfect pick for winner. This is high fashion, serious editorial photography, couture design, and Italian Vogue. Angles, awkwardness, shadows, quirks, eccentricity. If it was about "classic" beauty I'd agree the other one would've won, hands down. But it wasn't, so Ann was the obvious choice.

I do think she's extremely thin but as others have already said, it seems a more natural thinness than any effort on her part.

Yet another example of how utterly clueless I am about high fashion.

mea culpa

I think she is very thin, but it's only noticeable in the more waifish pictures. She has an interesting face.

^I agree. She's not the typical model that would stand out but she has an interesting face. Height does a lot of things to a person and it seems that she looks normal. I think she is a little too thin. I'm thin myself and I'm short so my height helps me to look normal.

Although she's thin, I don't view her as looking unhealthy when compared to some of the other girls out there walking the runways. And I think she has a beautiful face when done up. She reminds me of Karlie Kloss and that's probably a result of her height. It will be interesting to see how successful she becomes.

Not really. Models aren't really the most traditionally attractive people, or very attractive. And Tyra, especially has always been about finding the non-traditional beauty. Top Model has little to do with actual beauty, and more to do with what you make of what you got.

Personally, though I thought Ann was so overrated all season to the point that I actually got sick of her, she took STUNNING pictures, and I don't think she is too thin at all. I would kill to be that tall and thin.

I did not watch this season, but looking at the pictures AND hearing that she is 6'2"- I really think its probably not anorexia just kind of an extreme body type. That is REALLY tall! I have a daughter who is 5'8'" and growing with size 11 feet and legs like a gazelle. She is a size 6 jeans but weighs 145 you would never guess it. Her bones just weigh alot!

I am not a proponent of emaciated models but I do feel that SOME models are just built really tall and thin and when they are very young and have their metabolism at top force they can stay that slim pretty easily and not have an eating disorder. But in a few years she will pop up to a size 4-6 and Calvin Klein will fire her .

Just one more thing ( that's right girlfriend! ): as the mother of teen and preteen girls I think the thing worth fighting for in the media is DIVERSITY. I am raising my girls so that a super thin model is not going to cause them to quit eating, but they are able to see girls like Whitney who was mentioned, and other representations of healthy beauty. Its much better in that regard than in the 80's when I was a teen and my curvy figure was not in fashion any where. I had to find old pictures of Marilyn and Sohpia to feel better about myself. Anne's gangly crazy tall figure is going to make some girl feel beautiful, and she is. She is more nerd chic than heroin chic.
