Ann Ward, an 'America's Next Top Model' contestant from Dallas, was crowned the season's winner in last night's finale episode.
Ann's figure has been a controversial topic throughout the season. At 36", she has the smallest waist seen in the show's 15 seasons!
In a promo before the season began, judge Miss J placed his hands around the 6-foot-2 model's small waist. "You have the smallest waist in the world," host Tyra Banks exclaimed. "Look at that waist!"
Tyra later said that the scene was "edited in a way that misconstrued our overarching message."
"I am committed to expanding the definition of beauty which includes ALL shapes, sizes and proportions, from skinny to curvy and everything in between," she added.
Since there has been a plus-size model winner in past seasons, we'll take Tyra's word for it.
