Who was able - in Tyra's actual words - to "reclaim her immortal smize?"


"I've been dreaming of this for such a long time," James said upon earning the title and winning $130,000; a spread in Nylon; and a contract with two model agencies.

As the champion of the first-ever college cycle, Laura also be the face of the fragrance, Dream Come True.
