Tall and ultra-slim Ann Ward battled her feelings of awkwardness to win the title on Cycle 15's "America's Next Top Model" and now Vogue Italia has given us a preview shot from her cover shoot, which will appear in their supplemental May 2011 Beauty in Vogue issue.

"Watching Ann realize that she is uniquely beautiful standing tall at 6'2," host and executive producer Tyra Banks tells Vogue Italia. "Is one of the reasons I make it a point to choose contestants that the audience can relate to. Women should understand that there is no such thing as standard beauty."

Ann will also appear in a fashion spread in the actual pages of Vogue Italia as part of her win.

Do you think Ann is working it?
