The runway coach of America’s Next Top Model, Miss J Alexander discussed his new role on the show with Newsbeat, as well as some juicy tidbits on Tyra Banks’ sense of fashion.Â Miss J changed from being a judge to a coach, as Vogue Editor, Andre Leon Talley is now a judge on this latest season.
Miss J says, “It’s more about not just doing one runway walk and I get slammed for the girls not getting it right.Â So we decided, why don’t we have me go in and just give them little tips.Â I may do a little impromptu fashion show.Â Just to kind of keep them going, just to build up.Â So it should be a process, a stepping stone, not a stumbling block.”
Miss J revealed some of the things that models have done that have shocked him.Â “I freaked out over a girl who didn’t shave her armpits.Â That was my freak-out.”
As for his relationship with Tyra Banks, Miss J reveals that he’s known Tyra since we was sixteen.Â Although great friends, it doesn’t stop him from speaking out if Tyra takes a fashion misstep.Â “There are times when she walks in and I go, ‘oooh girl I don’t know about that one.’ Because I know her stylists, it’s the people she’s hired to work with her.Â So I put a little bug in their ear to say next time, no, no that doesn’t work.Â There has been a time when she actually walked off set and had to change her clothing to come back with something that really works.”
