The comments, which have been perceived by some as shade, come after Harlow told Andy Cohen, the host of Bravo’s “What What Happens Live” that America’s Next Top Model did nothing for her career.
“I really started after the show, ’cause that really didn’t do anything for my career…which, it doesn’t do anything for any model’s career, realistically. A photographer from London hit me up—major photographer Nick Knight—and he was like, ‘Hey, I’ve seen your photos online, and I want to do a shoot with you.’ It went viral, and I got campaigns from there, and it hasn’t stopped since,” she said live on air.
Marcille, who was also discovered on the reality series, had some sobering words for Harlow.
“You know what? It amazes me that people get opportunities and they totally forget who gave them those opportunities. Winnie Harlow is a beautiful girl, but let’s be clear — we know her because of Top Model. The world knows her, Drake knows her, Wiz Khalifa knows her because of Top Model. So to diss Tyra, who gave everyone this huge platform, I think it’s really wack,” she said.
We’re with Eva on this one. Even if things really didn’t get popping until after the show, the photographer likely only reached out to Harlow in the first place after the show shined a spotlight onto her.
