I did this with Jaslene and Natasha, and now I’m going to do it with Nik and Nicole, who probably make up one of my favorite Top 2s in any Top Model show. Basically, I’ll just critique their shots week by week. Please leave comments =)

Week 1- Superheros

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Easily Nik. Her pose enlogates her body and her big puff of hair works well with the crazy styling. Nicole’s doesn’t suck, but it’s stiff.

Week 2: Country Couture

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Yikes. This one is so close… They’re both easily the best of the week and two of the best of the cycle, but Nicole takes it by a SMIDGE.

Week 3- Fashion Monster

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nik. Nicole’s is fine, but considering the brief- ‘RUN on a treadmill from the fashion monster’, she falls short a bit. She basically just looks like she’s standing there.

Week 4- Freak Plastic Surgery-

Nicole- Tanning Addict

Nik- Crazy Weave

Edge- I like both, but I’m going to give it to Nik here. I think Nicole’s expression is a little dopey, whereas Nik looks really sexy and confident.

Week 5- Secret Ads

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nicole. Nik had her worst week here. Her shot isn’t bad, but Nicole’s is beautiful… Her porcelain skin, long wavy hair… Perfect for a commercial brand but also sexy enough so you know she’s a model.

Week 6- B&W Beauty Shots/Pin-Up Girls

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nicole, just slightly, for both. I actually love the little glint in Nik’s eye in her pin-up shot, and her black and white picture is divine. However, Nicole’s black and white picture is hauntingly beautiful, and her cute little butt is just perfect in the pinup shot!

Week 7- Wildboyz

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nik. She really went for it… Ugly expression, interesting body shape. Nicole’s is funny, but she sort of looks like she’s not trying hard enough.

Week 8- Phonebooth Paparazzi Shots-

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nicole. Nik looks vaguely lazy-eyed and the 3/4 profile doesn’t really do her justice here. Nicole looks sweet, dollish and hot.

Week 9- Modern Interpretations of Art

Nicole- ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earring’

Nik- ‘Vitruvian Man’

Edge- Nik. She really impresses here with the straight on face and the beautiful, streamlined limbs. Nicole is pretty, but bland.

Week 10- Bollywood

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nik. The colors of her background look stunning with her skin, and she really looks the part of a Bollywood actress.

Final Week- Covergirl

Nicole-

Nik-

Edge- Nicole. She really does look easy and breezy. Nik looks good, but her smile is a little fake.

Final Score-

Nicole- 6 (If you count the pinup/B&W shots separately)

Nik- 6

Not surprisingly, a very tight race. Either would have made a worthy winner.
