CariDee English, winner of Season 7, is busy partying and acting these days. She even made an appearance on Gossip Girl. Nik from Season 5 is working the runways these days, while Season 5 winner Nicole Linkletter is showing off clothes for SoLowStyle.com.

Each girl has found her niche in a different place, but one thing they have in common is that they're workin' it.
