Early life

Celia Ammerman grew up in Cynthiana, Kentucky. She realized she wanted to work in the modeling or fashion industry at age 14 after trying on her mother's wedding gown.[1] Her mother, a seamstress, made Ammerman outfits and dresses from her birth throughout her childhood, which she also said helped develop her love of fashion.[2] Ammerman took part in every runway show or photo shoot available in Lexington, Kentucky, including at the Bella Rose clothing boutique and the non-profit Beaux Arts Ball.[1] When she moved to Brooklyn in July 2006, she lived in an apartment across from a chicken slaughterhouse.[1] She has previously worked as a Thom Browne specialist for the Bergdorf Goodman department store.[3]

America's Next Top Model

"I'm still a little shy and awkward but sometimes rely on my clothes to speak for me. I'm obsessed with researching designers and analyzing street style from all over the world. I have an unconventional look and am a huge nerd. I just happen to be somewhat attractive."
Celia Ammerman[1]

In 2007, at age 23, Ammerman tried out for the CW Network reality television show America's Next Top Model, but was not chosen as a contestant. In 2009, an acquaintance who tried out for Stylista, another CW reality show, introduced her to an America's Next Top Model casting agent, who encouraged her to submit photos and attend a closed casting call.[2] This time she was chosen to perform in the show's twelfth cycle. It was during her time on the show that she learned she was cross-eyed, a fact she was not aware of until judge and photographer Nigel Barker told her.[1]

At age 25, Ammerman was the oldest contestant in Cycle 12,[4] and judges repeatedly expressed concern that she might be too old to be a model.[4][5][6] However, she was also complimented by the judges on multiple occasions for her elegance, her love of fashion and its reflection in her personal styling,[6] and what Paulina Porizkova, a judge and former model, called her "non-traditional model looks".[4]

During the March 25 episode, after the judges voted to keep contestant Tahlia Brookins on the show, Ammerman told the judges she felt Brookins should be dismissed because she had been expressing a great deal of self-doubt and questioning whether she should stay on the show. Banks criticized Ammerman for making the public statement, claiming that decision should come from Brookins rather than her.[7][8]

Ammerman was among the final four contestants when she was eliminated from the show on the May 6 episode. During the same episode she was eliminated, Ammerman ranked first place in a dance challenge and was complimented by Banks for her bone structure and strength. The day before the episode ran, several reporters predicted Ammerman to win the competition.[9]

Modeling career

Prior to Top Model, Ammerman had been featured in Exposure &, Kentucky, CiN Weekly Magazine, Ohio, CCQ Magazine, deliriusdesign.com, NY & Borderline Magazine. Her runway credits included: Belvedere Vodka, NY, Aveda Hair Show, Ohio, Beaux Arts Runway, Kentucky.[10]

Following her appearance on America's Next Top Model, Ammerman shot her first fashion spread for the New York Post style section. She showcased her top five looks for the spring season, including a Juicy Couture swimsuit, a Brooks Brothers prep jacket and trousers, a Matthew Williamson nightdress from H&M, an Alice + Olivia belted halter dress and a Kate Moss Topshop jacket.[3] In addition, thanks to challenge wins on the show she has appeared in an ad for CoverGirl on Walmart.com and in the June 2009 issue of Seventeen. She has also been featured on Racked.com[11] as well as in the September 2009 issue of Allure Magazine[12] and Short Hair Magazine.[13]

Ammerman appeared in the Vogue accessories supplement in the September 2009 issue of Vogue Italia, modeling Prada sunglasses.[14]

Ammerman collects coins, stamps and Star Wars action figures.[1] In April 2009, Ammerman was working at the Intermix fashion store in Manhattan.[15]
