'You Don't Know My Name'
EVA & TYRA Photographed together
for the first time, since Eva became
"Next Top Model".
Not bad for a shy lonely and
confused lil' black gal who decided
one day to change her life and
stepped out on Faith defying
everybody who told her "you can't".
The 19-year-old student from Los Angeles was left
the last pretty young thing standing on the season
finale of Tyra Banks' catwalk-strutting reality show
She triumphed over legally blind Amanda Swafford,
who finished third and Yaya Da Costa Johnson,
from Harlen, New York, in second place..
Pigford was rewarded with a
$100,000 contract with CoverGirl, a
spread in Elle magazine and a
contract with Ford Models.
"I am a cover girl," Pigford said after
her win. "This little tomboy from L.A.
that has never been beautiful. I was
not the cute girl in school. I came
here the shortest and the one that
had the most insecurities inside of
them, and now I'm America's Next
