“America’s Next Top Model” all-stars winner Lisa D’Amato was back on the CW this week, helping mentor the Cycle 18 girls in their music challenge. She tells Zap2it all about the experience of returning, which girls she thinks are the strongest and what she’s been up to since all-stars wrapped.
“I’m very jealous of them because their music challenge has more elements than our music challenge did on all-stars,” D’Amato tells us, of the Cycle 18 girls. “We all mentored them in our own fortes. I mentored in the studio and co-wrote songs for them, I wrote their individual parts. It was great fun.”
Lisa has never been afraid to speak her mind, so she certainly didn’t hesitate to tell us which girls stood out to her this cycle.
“The ones who really shined and made an impact on my heart were Alisha, Annaliese, Catherine… and Laura is a sweetheart. You can tell her heart is golden,” says Lisa. “Kyle is really cute, and I loved Azmarie’s look, but she didn’t really pull as much as the other girls did in the challenge.”
We’re actually pretty surprised Lisa found time to stop by “ANTM” this season – she has been keeping really busy since all-stars wrapped.
“I’m the face of Dream Come True, which is the first ‘ANTM’ fragrance, it’s available at Target, everyone needs to check it out. I wear it every day,” says Lisa. “I shot my Italian Vogue and Beauty in Vogue, those come out in May and June … I shoot my Express campaign in May.”
“I’m constantly touring with my music for my album ‘Flipping the Bird,'” she continues. “Next month I go to Canada, I’m doing ‘ANTM’ live with some of other girls from all-stars where we interact with fans and press and do runway shows. So everybody who lives in Toronto, Canada needs to come down!”
