Allison Elizabeth Harvard (born January 8, 1988) is an American model, artist, actress, and Internet celebrity, best known as the runner-up of both cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model and America's Next Top Model: All-Stars. Harvard has appeared on the cover of magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, ONE, WeTheUrban, and one of the Philippine's leading fashion megazines, Mega.

Early life[edit]

Harvard was born in Houston, Texas and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana.[2][3] She attended Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge before transferring to the University of New Orleans, where she studied art during the spring semester.[3] Her artwork is featured in the 2007 novel The Story Told at Night by Liza Kuznetsova.[4]

In 2005, before her appearance on America's Next Top Model, Harvard gained notoriety as an Internet meme on 4chan, where she became known as Creepy Chan.[5]

Career[edit]

America's Next Top Model[edit]

After being contacted through email by a casting agent who had seen her look online,[3] Harvard successfully auditioned for cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model. During the audition process, Harvard stated that she thought nosebleeds were pretty,[6] and that she was fascinated by blood.[7]

Harvard was called first by Tyra Banks four times, in episodes two, ten, twelve and thirteen (the first part of the finale).[8] Harvard was in the bottom two twice. In episode four, she landed in the bottom two with contestant Nijah Harris because she was said to have over-analyzed her shoot.[9] In episode seven, she landed in the bottom two with contestant Tahlia Brookins because of her lackluster commercial and her one-dimensional look, leading the judges to question her versatility.[10]

During the finale episode of America's Next Top Model, Harvard gave a convincing CoverGirl commercial and was hailed for her improvement from the previous commercial.[11] In the final runway walk, Harvard was deemed the most improved despite being deemed the worst walker out of the bunch at the beginning of the competition. Despite her improvements and strong look, Harvard lost the competition to Teyona Anderson, making Harvard the runner-up.

In 2011, Harvard participated in cycle 17 of America's Next Top Model, the first All-Stars edition of the show, where she was the runner-up for a second time.[12]

Like all the other contestants on Cycle 17, Harvard was given a branding word: "unique". During her time on the show she developed her own perfume called "Honey Blood" and performed in a music video for her song "Underwater".

Harvard made an appearence in the season finale of Cycle 21, taking part in a commercial for Tyra's new make-up collection along with the final 4 contsetants.

After America's Next Top Model[edit]

In June 2009, Harvard signed with the Los Angeles-based Nous Model Management,[1] but is no longer included on the agency's current roster.[13] Since America's Next Top Model, Harvard has modeled for KarmaLoop.com, walked at the 2012 New York Fashion Week for Gemma Kahng and Malan Breton, and was featured in a spread for ONE Magazine.[14] She has also modeled for Chromat and Richie Rich.[15][16]

In June 2009, she made an Internet video with fourfour titled "Fake Blood",[17] and was "interviewed" by Winston, the resident cat at fourfour.[18] Harvard is the face of Michael Cinco's "Impalpable" perfume, with international male model Tierry Vilson and walked in the Philippine Fashion Week 2012 with fellow All-Stars contestant Dominique Reighard in the Michael Cinco and Rajo Laurel for Bench fashion shows.[19] Harvard was on the cover of the fifth issue of online publication WeTheUrban.[20] In mid-2012, she appeared in promotional photos for G Fine Body Art, a beauty brand that is set to launch glittery body art services at salons and spas starting later in fall 2012.[21]

In celebration of Bench's twenty-fifth anniversary, Harvard walked the runway at Bench Universe: The 2012 Denim & Underwear Show in September 2012, along with Reighard and this time with America's Next Top Model, Cycle 18 winner Sophie Sumner.[22]

On October 6, 2012, Harvard made an appearance in an episode of I Am Meg: Own the World in Style, a Philippine TV Lifestyle show on ETC.[23]

On October 10, 2012, a behind-the-scenes shows Harvard did a fashion shoot for Bello Magazine, titled "Hippie Trail".[24] On October 17, Harvard walked for NAVEN at the Los Angeles Fashion Week.[25]

On October 2013, it was announced that Harvard would be one of the hosts of the Philippine television show Mega Fashion Crew: Reloaded on ETC.[26] In 2014, she became one of the judges of the Philippine dance competition television show Celebrity Dance Battle, which premiered on TV5 on March 22.[27] In August 2014, Harvard booked another show for Bench called The Naked Truth.[28] She guested as a judge for the grand finals of Miss Earth 2014.[29]

Acting[edit]

On September 21, 2012 it was announced that Harvard would be making her acting debut as the character Carina in the independent feature film Insensate.[30] The film was released early August 2013 on iTunes.
