Here's What Krista White From America's Next Top Model Is Doing Now

After auditioning for 12 cycles, Krista White finally got her spot in the 13 girls selected for "America's Next Top Model" Cycle 14. She is one of those people who worked extremely hard for what she wanted, and what she wanted was to be a model. Before "ANTM," the Arkansas native was signed to BMG Model Management for over a year after competing in a local modeling competition. Then she came onto "ANTM," earning top photo four times consecutively and ending up taking first prize. Her prizes included a $100,000 Cover Girl contract, a Wilhelmina Models Management contract, and a cover and spread in Seventeen Magazine (via her website). Soon after her win, she did the spread in a 2010 issue of Seventeen (via Instagram) and walked in BET's Rip the Runway in 2011 (via Entertainment Weekly). 


In an interview with People, soon after winning the cycle, she says she felt very normal after the win. "As soon as I came back from New Zealand [where the show went abroad to], I went right back into going to work ... I still feel like myself, so going back to work was a breeze. I was still being the boss like I normally would."

But, like most models after "ANTM," Krista White had other things in mind for her future career path.

Krista White is a fashion director for a magazine

While Krista White hasn't been in the limelight like past winners Sophie Sumner and Naima Mora, she's been hustling. Currently still signed to Wilhelmina Models, White has been modeling from time to time (via POPSUGAR). Her most recent editorial appearances have been in Seven Tribes Magazine and Deluxe Version Magazine (via Entertainment Weekly). However, she's mostly gone in a different direction since her "ANTM" days.


Besides not looking like she's aged a day since "America's Next Top Model," she's trying out a few different avenues. According to her website, she is currently working on branching out into TV hosting. In 2016, she was a judge on the short-lived TLC show "Global Beauty Masters" in Season 1 and returned as a student mentor for Season 2. Afterward, she basically got the bug and since then, is looking for more money moves like that. But as of right now, she is the both Fashion Director for DLXVRSN Magazine and partnering with Eelece Beauty.
