Winnie Harlow Anthem
She has modeled for Marc Jacobs, Coach, Elie Saab, and tons of other big-name designers and fashion houses. But little do fans know, the 23-year-old’s introduction to the modeling industry was actually on Tyra Banks‘s reality TV competition, “America’s Next Top Model.” On a recent episode of Andy Cohen‘s “Watch What Happens Life,” Harlow opened up about her time on reality TV, and let’s just say, she isn’t exactly pleased with people who credit “ANTM” as her big break.
She insists that her success came after leaving anth because the reality show never impacted her career. She also admitted that she signed for the anthem with expectations to better her modeling career. She then says she was disappointed because the show was only advocating for reality tv stories rather than models success. However, in the end, she doesn’t see it as a total waste of time as it did profit her career in one way or the other.
Six months after supermodel threw some shade at the hit reality series America’s Next Top Model, saying it did nothing for her career, host Tyra Banks has responded. When she had appeared on Bravo watch what happens live with andy cohen, Tyra banks were asked by caller heer take on the supermodel comments on her reality show and she said she saw it on the Instagram.
Still, Banks went on to say that she has, ‘nothing but love for my girls, and my girls come from so many different walks of life.’
‘A lot of the time when people express themselves in certain ways, there’s a reason,’ Banks added.
‘I will respect her confidentiality and her life but I have to give love to her,’ she said.

‘They’re my babies,’ Banks went on to say. ‘They’re all my babies, even the ones who act out, are still my babies.’
Cohen added, ‘That’s how I feel about the Housewives,’ referring to Bravo’s sprawling Real Housewives franchise of reality shows.
Winnie Harlow Wiz Khalifa
Though rapper Wiz Khalifa confirmed his relationship with the model on Instagram over the summer, the pair have rarely been spotted publicly since then—forgoing the usual relationship milestone of walking the red carpet (seriously, literally any red carpet, even the Met Gala if your relationship is in its infancy) together.
Until now: On Thursday night, they arrived together to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party, posing prom-style—Winnie in front, Wiz behind her with an arm around her waist—in front of the vivid pink step-and-repeat. Having just walked her first-ever Victoria’s Secret show, Harlow changed into a pink and silver fringed mini dress by Dundas for the after-party. Congratulations to Wiz and Winnie: you made it this far.
The two had been rumored to be dating since the beginning of July when the rapper posted a photo of himself with Harlow captioned “Winnie & Wiz” with two red heart emojis. Seems pretty unambiguous. In the photo, Khalifa wears a nameplate necklace that Harlow would later be photographed wearing; he’s also since been seen wearing a necklace that says “Winnie” in a cursive scroll. Khalifa’s ex-wife Amber Rose chimed in the comments, offering her endorsement: “Wait. Winnie Harlow as Sebastian’s stepmom?!?!?” she wrote. “#LitAF”
Khalifa rejected the notion that he was dating Harlow in a subsequent interview—“That’s my homegirl, she’s super sweet,” he said, when a Breakfast Club host asked about their relationship—but then, before the month was out, he posted another, even less ambiguous photo of the two of them, captioned, ““YOU CARE WHAT ANYONE THINKS,” with the thinking-face emoji. “HER: “NAW NOPE‼️” WINNIE & WIZ,” he continued, again flanking his caption with the red heart emojis.
After Victoria’s Secret show, Harlow reposted a photo from Trevor Noah’s Instagram stories of the three of them; in the post, Noah congratulated Harlow on her Victoria’s Secret debut and added, in the top left corner, the words “Favorite couple,” the “o” in couple replaced by a red heart emoji. Seems to be a theme. Anyways, there’s no sign of official couple-dom like your significant other showing up to support you at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
