Lauren Utter was eliminated from Americas Next Top Model this past Wednesday (Apr. 23) after failing to impress Tyra Banks and her fashion posse with her runway skills and Cover Girl commercial.
Throughout the show, Utter had trouble learning how to walk like a model, especially in high heels.
She explains, I had never walked in high heels in my life. I didnt grow up practicing my runway walk or wanting to be model. I never walked in my moms heels, because she wore boots! I just wasnt brought up in a model environment.
Utter gave walking in heels her best shot, but admits the Top Model set isnt the best place to perfect ones catwalk.
She says, They expect you to know all these things about runway and dont really train you. I want to be trained in runway!
Utter whos more likely to wear a pair of Converse than heels still practices her walk these days, but admits she doesnt wear heels unless she has to.
Top Model airs Wednesdays on The CW.
