From Scotia to America's Next Top Model

Fierce in the face of British competition.

The upcoming season (er, "cycle") of America's Next Top Model includes a contestant from Scotia, Laura LaFrate. She's 20 years old and a Scotia-Glenville High School alum.

It appears LaFrate has already been working as a professional model for a few years, and now lives in New York City. Here are photos from a recently posted shoot.

This season of ANTM (the show's 18th) is set up as a showdown between "seven amazing British all stars" and "seven up-and-coming American models." Fierce trash talk ensues.

The first episode airs February 29 at 9 pm on the CW (channel 15 here in the Capital Region).

(Thanks, Jessica R!)

Excellent homegrown model material. They will work on getting her to connect more with the camera.
