would flip if she saw this -- the shocking bruised mug shot of former "America's Next Top Model" star Renee Alway, following her insane arrest in Palm Springs last month.

As we reported, 27-year-old Alway -- who placed 3rd on cycle 8 of the show -- was arrested on June 28th following a six-hour standoff with police ... after she was allegedly spotted wandering around a vacant home while carrying a gun.

Among the charges ... Alway was booked on suspicion of burglary, fraud, possession of narcotics, forged bills, and committing a felony while on bail.

Alway had been out on bail following her prior arrest just weeks before ... when she was popped for drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and fraud.

Sad.

You can tell she was a coke head from 2007. She has that stoner look and coked-up nose! She obviously moved on to harder stuff as we say in the mug shot! She reminds me of Amy Winehouse's drug he'll decent. But guess what? At least she can add to her resueme that she is the new poster model of "Meth at it's finest"!

Sad story...I agree, it looks like meth got ahold of her. I truly hope she gets the help she needs.

A rough look can work once in awhile, just not this time.

This is an good example of how the real risky life style of trying to be a model, move star, music artist, what the majority fall into when 15 minutes of fame is over?

I guess she had to stay bony and turned to drugs. I'd rather have a potato.

Very sad. I wonder what happened in her life that lead to such a downward spiral. I hope she can turn her life around. Even if she chooses never to model again afterward, I hope she at least gets her life back together.

Laughing at celebrities is fun.    

You can see she's crazy, it's in the eyes.

Young lady who were you before all that stuff started?

When you find her again everything will be okay.

You have ot find a way to release your mind in a way that reward you instead or hurt you.

Drugs are a mind altering mind numbing temporary escapism.

Deep down inside, what is it you really want? What's the real source of your fear and troubles?

Don't give up.

Looks like you've seen way too much real way too fast. Looks like you almost got lost in the fantasy and couldn't find your way back out. You be good.

Just make a choice. Right or wrong, good or bad?

God Bless
