Allison Harvard (born January 8, 1988) is best known as one of the contestants of America's Next Top Model, Cycle 12 and America's Next Top Model, Cycle 17: All-Stars

Myspace and Deviantart

Allison Harvard is an American painter and photographer who gained popularity on Myspace and DeviantArt in 2005 because of her stylized paranormal and glam/grunge photo self-portraits[1]. They resemble Daveigh Chase in "The Ring", Mischa Barton in "The Sixth Sense", and Courtney Love's baby-doll dress and tiara grunge period. Harvard's signature look was heavy eye makeup, wide-eyed stare, and troubled expressions reminiscent of Cindy Sherman's Film Stills[2].

In 2007, 4chan's imageboard "/b/" (widely known as a cesspool of offensive material including racist and discriminating jokes, gore, and pornographic images), re-posted Harvard's stylized photo self-portraits as demotivationals, calling her "Creepy-Chan", which became a somewhat popular internet meme. However, it later became apparent that "Creepy-chan" was not always considered creepy, so her dual personality, "Cute-Chan", was born[3]. "Cute-Chan" does not wear heavy eye makeup or pink dresses while standing hunched over on coffee tables staring wide-eyed into the camera (as "Creepy-Chan" does); rather, she wears normal clothes and goes about her everyday business in a decidedly cute fashion[4]

Individuals identifying themselves as "Anonymous" (AKA "Anon", a pseudonym/username made popular on 4chan and other meme associated websites), noted the difference between her candid and stylized pictures and publicly wondered if Harvard was a model. By late 2008, Encyclopedia Dramatica (a satirical open wiki that uses MediaWiki software and documents Internet drama, culture, and memes) added Harvard to its "chan" list, calling her a "non-selfposting cam girl."

Harvard no longer regularly maintains an internet presence.

Contemporaneously, Harvard was equally well known as a painter. Harvard's paintings recall Marilyn Manson's and Francesco Clemente's watercolors. Harvard illustrated the children's fairytale book 'The Story Told at Night', written by Liza Kuznetsova and published in 2007[5]. Harvard describes her style of art as "surreal. psychedelic. genuine"[6].

America's Next Top Model

In 2009, Harvard was revealed as a contestant on Cycle 12 which will premiere on March 4. She was a runner-up to Teyona Andersen, and then she appeared again in cycle 17.
