DEDICATED TO DAWSON
FOR seven years, model and television personality Charlotte Dawson was a major and colourful part of Australia’s Next Top Model. When she died in February last year aged 47, production on the next season of the show was put on hold out of respect.
Foxtel is determined to deliver a stirring tribute to their fallen star and the fi rst episode will begin with a homage from supermodel Tyra Banks.
Banks, who hosts the US version of the show, speaks of Dawson’s spirit and contribution to both the modelling industry and ANTM. This season is dedicated to Charlotte.
ANTM mentor Didier Cohen said the gesture was “the least we could do”. “You can’t easily capture what she was to the show. She lived and breathed it. I think every season should be a tribute to Charlotte.”
