Where are our favourite Australia's Next Top Model stars now?

Okay so maybe these weren't all our favourites, some of them we loved to hate. 

Cassi Van den Dugan

Season: Runner up, Cycle 5
You should all remember Cassi Van den Dugan as the 'bogan model' from Sunbury, Victoria. If you weren't old enough to recall her bullying ways on Season 5, you may remember her skinny frame coming under heat when she walked for Alex Perry in 2014.
Four years later, and she has happily taken to Instagram to announce that she has gained 10 kg's, and is married to her long-term boyfriend and father of her son, Brad Saul


Simone Holtznagel

Season: Third place, Cycle 7
Okay so maybe Simone Holtznagel was a bit of a bully too, but we kind of liked it, I mean she just said what we were all thinking.
Last year you would have spotted her on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, as well as on posters for Guess, Bra's N Things, and Playboy. Doing well Simmy.


Duckie Thot

Season: Runner up, Cycle 8
Easily one of the most successful models post AUSNTM, Duckie Thot has enjoyed a huge amount of success such as her recent appearance as a face of Rihanna's line of cosmetics, Fenty Beauty
Duckie now lives in New York, and has walked for Moschino, Maison Margiela, Helmut Lang, Jeremy Scott and more. 


Izi Simundic

Season: Seventh place, Cycle 9
This girl is on our radar for one soul reason, her amazing style. Izi Simundic finished seventh place, so it's fair enough if you don't remember her, even after her stint on Kim Kardashian's Instagram for a few hours.
Izi now lives in Milan and is placed with an Italian agency called Independent, she is a full time model and editor of her blog, The Editorialist


Brittany Beattie

Season: Winner, Cycle 9
Brittany Beattie was 20 and working as a bobcat driver in Whittlesea, Victoria, when she won Cycle 9. She won a year long contract with IMG Models Australia as part of her prize, but then was seen to be signed with Vivien's about a year later. She did some modelling for Westfield, Alex Perry, One Teaspoon and Fashion Journal in 2015. She’s now 23 years old and has moved on from modelling. Such a shame. 


Tahnee Atkinson

Season: Winner, Cycle 5
Now here's a winner who can stick around for a bit longer. Tahnee Atkinson won her season of AUSNTM when she was only 17, we all remember the moment she was crowned just after getting a 10-minute nose bleed on live television. She’s had a successful career domestically; shooting campaigns with brands like Bras N Things, and magazine covers with Harper's Bazaar and Sports Illustrated.
