Tyra Banks announced during the finale party that Linkletter has been chosen by photographer Gilles Bensimon to be shot in Paris for an entire year to do the couture collection photo shoots. Said Tyra, "People don't understand what that is, but in the fashion world, to shoot couture for Elle magazine, with Gilles Bensimon, is huge!".
Tyra also said of Nicole: "The one thing about Nicole is she has the model 'thing' more than any of our other winners -- the body type, the face type and the attitude," Tyra explains. "She really is a fashion model. She reminds me of the girls I modeled with when I was in Europe when I was 17 years old. Some of the girls were a little shorter, had big bubbly personalities, or certain things were off or different, but Nicole has the model 'thing.'"
