Ann Ward Named America's Next Top Model

by at . Comments

This absolutely epic, historic, life-altering cycle 15 finale of America's Next Top Model aired last night.

As over-hyped by Tyra Banks ("Do you understand how serious this is?" she asked. "This is Top Model – elevated."), the concluding episode pitted Ann against Chelsey, as the women competed to earn a spread in Italian Vogue.
