Apparently the Australian version of Top Model has a lot more credibility and clout than the original. Unlike the American version, in which "top" models get a short-lived cosmetics deal and a photoshoot in Elle, the Australian winner, Alice Burdeu, has landed a September Vogue cover.
Winners from America's Next Top Model usually hit the party circuit for a few months and then fade quickly, unless they can score another fifteen minutes by humiliating themselves on lowest-tier reality shows. Also, on ANTM, neither the contestants nor the winner actually look like top models (like the Gemmas, Darias, Doutzens, Frejas, Stams and Sashas of the world). The contestants look like catalogue models at best, which would be fine if the show was called America's Next Top Catalogue Model.
The stunning and versatile Burdeu actually looks like she could do couture runway, land competitive campaigns and do beautiful editorials. (And she's Faye Dunaway's doppegänger, too.)
