How much would you pay to be photographed by this man?

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful... OR because I have the most gorgeously clipped English accent.

A $100 asking price wasn’t enough to dissuade a long line of lucky ladies (and men!) from the privilege of having “America’s Next Top Model” judge, *noted fashion photographer* Nigel Barker, step behind the camera and snap away during Fashion’s Night Out earlier this month in New York City.

Passion for fashion: Lloyd Boston proves style and New Jersey go hand-in-hand

If the only thing you know about New Jersey is what you see on television – aka “Jerseylicious,” “Jersey Couture,” “Jersey Shore” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” – you may be under the false impression that everyone in the Garden State wears bedazzled animal prints 24/7.

That’s where you’d be wrong – and Lloyd Boston is proof of that. The New Brunswick native is a fashion style expert with four books and a TV show, “Closet Cases,” under his belt. His latest tome, “The Style Checklist: The Ultimate Wardrobe Essentials For You,” dropped earlier this month. A regular contributor to the “Today” show, Lloyd appeared on the morning program twice last week alone to talk fashion. He will add to his list of TV appearances when he drops by “The Wendy Williams Show” on Sept. 15 (check local listings) and  “The Martha Stewart Show” on Hallmark Channel at 10 a.m. Sept. 22.

Lloyd also took part in New York City’s Fashion’s Night Out on Friday, which is where I met up with him. As spokesman for Jones New York, Lloyd dazzled Lord & Taylor shoppers with a fashion show and commentary, and later offered tips – as well as photos and autographs – to his admirers.

“America’s Next Top Model”: Let’s hear it for the Jersey girls!

For the first time in “America’s Next Top Model” history, two girls from the Garden State are in the final four.

Here's Woodstown native Teyona.

Here's Woodstown native Teyona.

Aminat Ayinde, a 21-year-old student from Union, wowed the judges last night with her rockin’ bod during a photo shoot on a Brazilian beach. Host Tyra Banks said Aminat’s body rivals that of Naomi Campbell. (Hopefully Aminat won’t get into the habit of throwing phones at people.) Teyona Anderson, a 20-year-old loss prevention representative, has consistently impressed Tyra and company with her fascinating face (which makes her look like she’s in a wind tunnel, Tyra has repeatedly said) and ability to show her body’s angles off to its best advantage.

Do Aminat and Teyona have a legitimate chance at winning this “ANTM” cycle? I’d say it’s more than likely. Wide-eyed Allison has certainly stepped it up the last couple of weeks, and she’s got a fresh, different look. But her shyness is killing off any real chance she’s got. And Celia… I love the girl, but I don’t think she’s going to overcome the age thing. Especially since clients seem to notice that she looks older.
