TV and mid-sized companies make strange bedfellows for the simple reason that the latter rarely have large marketing budgets. But quality products will always move if they do what they claim. And sometimes, you never know who you’re helping.
That was the case in early 2013 when the makers of Dermefface FX7 learned they had a high-profile client who’d used the product to help get rid of a very prominent scar she’d developed after a fall. The client? Lisa D’Amato. And her claim to fame? None other than America’s Next Top Model.
Who is Lisa D’Amato?
Lisa D’Amato is an American model and recording artist. She’s known primarily for her time on America’s Next Top Model, appearing on the 5th cycle, where she placed sixth. Yet she remained a fan favorite for her bold style and daring outfits that landed her a second shot at the title, on America’s Next Top Model All-Stars, which she won in 2011.
D’Amato’s personality on America’s Next Top Model contributed to much of the show’s success, earning her the title ’10th Biggest Villain in Reality TV’ by TV Guide.
Her career blossomed, with modeling work for high profile clients like Guess and Barney’s New York. She continued her TV appearances as well, appearing on MTV Cribs and The Oxygen Network, among others. But her world crashed down, literally, in December 2012 when a freak accident left her with a huge facial scar that could have ended her modeling career.
