ANTM Judges Nigel Barker and Miss J Alexander Visits the Philippines

According to Tim Yap, two of the judges of America's Next Top Model are coming here in the Philippines. Tim Yap tweeted:
America's Next Top Model's Nigel Barker is in Manila, shooting someone from GMA-7. Who is it? Secret. You'll see it in the next few months" 
"America's Next Top Model judge&coach Miss J Alexander will be in Manila April 14-16,going around Ayala Malls for a series of talks on beauty "
"Getting ready to meet Nigel Barker &see him in action. Interesting to see passionate&talented people@ work. Plus, he loves the Philippines!"
I don't really care who Nigel is shooting (That person is very lucky). I wanna meet him and see him and hear his loveli-eh British accent. God, that photographer is hot! Also, I wanna see Ms. J in person. He might notice me in the crowd and have one-on-one teach with him on how to nail it on the cat walk.

To those who didn't know,  Nigel Barker is a world renowned fashion photographer who's been described by Tyra Banks as "lovely, sexy"on ANTM. He shot numerous top models and owns StudioNB in the Meat Packing District of Manhattan. He modeled for 10 years while pursuing college. He's married to the CoverGirl representative Cristen Chin Barker, who also have guested in some episode of ANTM.

Ms. J Alexander, the ultimate "runway diva coach extraordinaire", is a former judge (replaced by the current Andre Leon Talley) and the current resident runway coach of ANTM. He is famous for walking the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier and had coached models in the runway including Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks herself. He also designs his own outfits in ANTM except for the nurse outfit. Last year, he released his first book Follow the Model: Miss J's Guide to Unleashing Presence, Poise and Power that "shares his story and offers tips on how to be confident".

  7. Both Nigel and Miss J are on a book tour. I was not able to attend the Ayala event but was able to ask one of the managers of the sponsor if she can ask Miss J to sign the copy of his book I bought. Much to my delight Miss J signed with a cute message. A big thanks to the lady who helped me out and Miss J for being gracious! :)
