America’s Next Top Model All Stars winner Lisa D’Amato‘s Vogue Italia spread is finally out! The 30-year-old would-be model was crowned Top Model on Cycle 17 of the show last December, and has officially cashed in on one of her prizes – an editorial in Italian Vogue‘s April 2012 issue. Check out the images below, and watch behind-the-scenes footage from the photo shoot here.
And that’s not all she’s been up to since the finale aired. “I’m the face of Dream Come True, which is the first ‘ANTM’ fragrance,” said Lisa. “I shot my Italian Vogue and Beauty in Vogue, those come out in May and June … I shoot my Express campaign in May.”
Take a look at her ANTM All Stars portfolio - has she come a long way since the show wrapped? What do you think of her spread, and how does it stack up against the Vogue Italia editorials of Cycle 16 winner Brittani Kline and Cycle 15 winner Ann Ward? Share in the Comments!

Tonight, the ANTM judging panel of Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, André Leon Talley and Jay Manuel crowned the very first ever America’s Next Top Model All Star…Lisa D’Amato! Or did they? D’Amato was controversially named the winner of ANTM Cycle 17 over runner-up and fan favourite Allison Harvard and disqualified contestant Angelea Preston. But why was Angelea disqualified?
Rumour has it Angelea was originally named ANTM All Star, but couldn’t keep it a secret until the show aired; she was apparently disqualified after she let news of her win slip. It’s all over Twitter, so it must be true…right? The final judging panel looks to have been re-shot with only Lisa and Allison in attendance, and the former walking away with the title of America’s Next Top Model All Star.
In addition to bragging rights, Lisa also won a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics, the cover of Beauty In Vogue, fashion spreads in Vogue Italia and Beauty In Vogue, a blog on Vogue.it, a fashion campaign with U.S. retailer Express, the chance to be a correspondent on Extra, as well as the chance to be the face of an ANTM perfume to be launched nationally.
The finale leaves so many questions swimming in my head! What do you think of Lisa being crowned the first ever America’s Next Top Model All Star? Check out her full body of work on ANTM below – did she deserve the title? What are your thoughts on Angelea’s disqualification? And were you as disappointed as I was that Allison didn’t win?
