Transgender model Isis King was snipped from Americas Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Sep. 24), after failing to sizzle during photo shoots.
However, King did work it as the queen of the catwalk.
She was praised by the Top Model judges for her fierce runway strut, something shes been perfecting for years.
She began walking back in 2001 in high school and college fashion shows, and has practiced pounding the pavement every day since.
For daily drills she likes to put a mirror at the end of the hallway and strut it to accompanying music.
She says, Walking gives me so much confidence. Nothing beats the adrenaline when youre walking down a real runway and everyone is clapping for you. I love it!
King hopes to take the modeling world by storm with her runway skills, and is working towards getting gender reassignment surgery so she can finally be all woman.
Top Model airs Wednesday on The CW.
