Congrats to Grace, too

I just wanted to take a moment to recognize the fact that Grace won a competition last night as well. Grace, an unconventional beauty always walked the runway with such elegance. Who can forget when she easily reversed that jacket in the Banana Republic challenge? Or how natural she looked when wearing a cap covered with leaves? Or how much she resembled a ballerina when wearing the skating costume? And last night when modeling Chloe's finale dress, she gave you the illusion that she was all curves rather than angles. Well done, Grace! You won us over, too!

Grace was always memorable, in every challenge. She has such a distinctive beauty about her. Her spread in Elle is much deserved!

She was a great combination of graceful and fun-loved her little booty shake on DD!! So happy for you and Chloe, Grace-

Congratulations to Grace, so perfectly named. She did carry herself well throughout the show and I admired her walk for the banana republic challenge as well.

My best friend Amber is a six foot tal red head herself, so we were both rooting for her.

Also, I love seeing her stand next to Chloe.

Plus she looks like such a sweetheart.

I liked her "happy dance" when she found out that she and Chloe had won!

I have to say, even though I was disappointed that Chloe won, I am very happy for Grace... I always thought she stood out from the pack of models.. Very distinctive and beautiful...

Congrats Grace!

She is great. I love that she's a redhead. Can't wait to see her Elle spread:)

Grace was the best model on the show. :D I loved her. It's great that my favorite designer AND my favorite model both won.

When exactly will Grace's spread be?

My favorite images from Season 2 were always when Grace and Chloe were standing next to each other. What a great pair. She was the perfect model for Chloe's style.

much deserved kudos to Grace. Like everyone else, when is the Elle spread going to be published. My wife and Ib missed Jay's spread on Elle.

Grace was truly beautiful. The red hair stole me from the start, I just have a thing for red-heads. It will be incredibly interesting to follow the models too. As we know Tarah has already kind of hit it big. What will happen to Rebecca, Grace, Heather, Danyelle(sp?). Should be interesting. My three favorite models were Grace, Rebecca and Tarah.

Thanks for pointing all that out about Grace. I had forgotten that GRACEful switcheroo of the Banana Republic jacket. I remember reversing my TIVO just to watch that smooth move again and again.

Congrats Grace! Be lookin for ya in Elle!

She's so elegant and really works whatever she's wearing. Loved the way she switched the BR jacket.

Last season I really didn't care about the models. This year I really started to watch how different they were - which is interesting because there was less model-drama (a la Morgan and the craziness with the wedding dresses) but I was more into watching how they worked the designs.

Jon said...

Agreed. I wanted grace to win from day one because she is a perfect high fashion model. She has the right look and the right attitude to make it.

I think if she went on Top Model she'd be top three if not America's Next Top Model.

how tall is grace?

yawningdog said...

At least two feet taller than Chloe!
I rewound the end of Chloe's show just to watch her walk out behind Grace. I just loved it.

PhillyKat said...

i didn't realize grace was so dang tall! out of the 3 final models i felt grace was the most versatile, but quite frankly, they were all funny looking.
