Out of three beautiful young ladies,Laura James emerge as the winner of Americas next top model cycle 19.This 22 year-old country girl is all set to begin her modeling career, having beat out finalists Leila Goldkuhl (who won 3rd place) and Kiara Belen (runner-up) in the race to the finish.
This fierce blonde student of Paul Smith’s College,proves that she has what it takes to win the hit reality tv show.Being the daughter of actor John James and Australian model Denise Coward who is also the second runner up in Miss world 1978,Laura is in a lot of pressure entering the competition.But her beauty and natural modelling talent brought her to the top.
I never really expected Laura to win because I’m a fan of Leila Goldkuhl,but when Leila became surprisingly and unexpectedly eliminated,I turned all my hopes of winning to laura.Even though Kiara belen is also a top competition Laura’s fierce smize(as tyra banks always say)out shine her.
