The annual Ford Supermodel Of The world finale in NY is always an extravaganza and this year was no exception as the Ford machine was in full effect mode. From the client castings and final judging on Tuesday night to the blow-out finale at Skylight studio, even the somewhat overwhelmed Laforce and Stevens staff was had to concede that “spectacle” was the name of the game. The relentless Betty Sze was in the midst of things and here are her exclusive snaps.
