Life and career
1988-2007: early life
Analeigh Tipton was born on November 9, 1988 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When Tipton was 8, her family relocated to Sacramento, California, where she later attended St. Francis High School and the New York Film Academy's Film School program at Universal Studios, Los Angeles. She studied at Marymount College in Palos Verdes, California. Tipton was also a supporter of the Invisible Children. She participated in the Global Night Commute in the Cesar Chavez park.
Prior to America's Next Top Model, Tipton was signed to I Model & Talent in Los Angeles and walked in Los Angeles Fashion Week Fall 2008 for designer, Kelly Nishimoto for her Fall 2008 collection, Imasu.
Tipton began skating at the age of two and a half, and competed in four U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships. Later, she and her pair partner, Phillip Cooke, became two-time regional champions, and competed at the U.S. Junior Figure Skating Championships twice on the Juvenile level. She retired from competitive skating at 16 but continued to skate in charity ice shows for AIDS foundations and to rebuild a rink damaged in a fire.
2008-2010: ANTM and modeling career
Tipton placed third on Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model in 2008. She was recruited through Myspace and was asked to audition in Los Angeles. At the beginning of the show, Tipton revealed that she once encountered sex traffickers posing as modeling agents. She was then sold to a Saudi Arabian prince but managed to get out of the situation before the deal was finalized. After landing in the bottom 2 in the episode "You're Beautiful, Now Change" for not using her ice-skating moves to her advantage, she rebounded and appeared in the top three for seven consecutive weeks. Tipton was called first twice, one for the first CoverGirl commercial, which Tyra Banks deemed "the best CoverGirl commercial in the history of America's Next Top Model." She also won the go-sees challenge, by booking all three of her go-sees she went to and getting back on time. In a challenge won by Elina Ivanova, Ivanova shared her prize with Marjorie Conrad and Tipton; they appeared alongside each other in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of Seventeen magazine. She was subsequently eliminated in the finale after forgetting her lines in the second CoverGirl commercial, which left Samantha Potter and McKey Sullivan to walk in the finale runway show.
Tipton signed with Ford Models in Los Angeles and Abrams Artists Agency, in both the commercial and theatrical divisions. Additionally, she appeared on Spain's Marie Claire, Seventeen magazine's December 2008-January 2009 edition, and a several page spread in Maxim. She has also done catalog work for Forever 21, Guess, Three Dots and featured in the CampusGirls USA 'Girls of Pac 10 Conference' calendar which is published by her cousin and raises money for breast cancer.
In 2010, Tipton modeled Geren Ford's pre-fall 2010 collection. For Los Angeles Fashion Week she walked for Skingraft and David Alexander for the S/S 2010 season.
